      Pros

      I enjoyed working with my colleagues and the international students. Great summer position!

      Cons

      Sometimes the work schedule may change last minute due to unforeseeable events like bad weather, traffic, etc. However, the coordinators did a great job with communicating when there is a schedule change.
