Academic freedom
There was encouraged academic freedom in the teaching of the classes by the department; however, due to overall decisions made by the university it was difficult to obtain any consistent hours within the university. I enjoyed working with the department, and would have welcomed the opportunity to continue to be there.

Great learning and working environment!
Great learning and working environment This is a committed volunteer position per semester. It is a constantly evolving environment with interaction with many different students in one day. The hardest part of the job is understanding the lesson plan and being prepared to teach it with 24 hours notice. The most enjoyable parts of the job is seeing the sparkle in a child's eye when they realize they can do something new. This opportunity provides a great work experience for anyone looking to go into teaching or working with children!

It's a nice place to work at. They arranged your work schedule depending on the classes you are taking. So you won't have any trouble juggling study and work since they will still give a you lot of time to study. Just tell them that you're having trouble with your school works or if you demand more hours, they'll give it to you.

Great Experience for real life
Flexible hours as long as you complete the assignments given. You learn how to research and then put into a comprehensive report that allows others to read a condensed version of your work.

Flexible Hours for students
gave Flexible Hours for students. However hours were less and employers were more. Their expectations were also unclear. Most of the stuff is to be discovered by the worker himself/herself.

Productive
In my experience, self-reviews are extremely helpful because they give employees a way to reflect on their own performance. This will give the employer more details on how the employee has performed, because they are more likely to remember everything, as opposed to a supervisor who’s keeping track of 7-10 employees.
Pros
Gained knowledge
Cons
Random hours

no workplace culture
unfortunately it really lacks workplace culture and this makes it a dry and boring place to be for 40 hours a week, there could be quite a bit more that the workplace could do to make it an enjoyable place to be
