Good University, Confusing Chinese program

I was an assistant to the Chinese department for a few months, I spent most of my time organizing inventory and helping make presentations for students about what they had to do for their summer programs.

Help people considering your employer. Share your experience.

Good work environment

The job allowed a lot of room for experience and better skills that work along side being a student. You are surrounded by other intellectuals that are very open to helping others.

Awesome

Great school. Highly recommend. I learned a lot and met a lot of amazing people. If they had a counseling masters program I would have stayed for another two years.

URI is a great place for research in chemistry.

I enjoyed my time at URI. My professor was nice and helpful, supportive and cooperative. Fun to work with. Flexible work hour and independent work schedule made my work more productive.

big campus

works from 9am to 5 pm. Many types of equipment can be used. You can start interesting research by yourself. People are friendly to help. Country style not in a city.
Was this review helpful?

it was aweful

I would not recommend it for anyone. They did not care if I was doing well or even feeling emotionally well. They will take anyone for a teaching assistantiship because they need a warm body and they will let you do miserably just so they don't have to pay someone a living wage to do the job.

Don't want to give you any pay raises, only pay minimum wage for part time jobs and even salary positions don't pay enough for living in Rhode island.

Pros

Cons

Limited hours, poor management, uncomfortable work environment, unorganized
