Contract work barely pays
Veteran Administration (VA) Work Study (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – November 9, 2017
I work as a contract worker (short-term) and only was paid minimum wage for no more that 30 hours per week. The work itself was very repetitive and had few challenges, however, there was much demand to get it done as thoroughly as possible and fast.
8 out of 10 students would be understanding while the other 2 would become very argumentative, vulgar, and occasionally threatening. That would be the hardest part of the job knowing that students rely on the financial aid to make ends meet. The rewarding part of the job is knowing that I had a small part in the students success once they graduate. The work environment itself is very mellow and relaxed, but very professional. This is also true to for the management.
