Fun to help students learn

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The experience of being a Demi is a great way to earn abit of cash while helping students to not make the mistakes you might have. While admittedly the pay is not alot, it's a flexible environment and it's satisfying to see students finally click with a technique or problem.

Straight Forward

Depends on the course and lecturer. Usually only required to work once a week, and duties include marking and assisting tuts/practicals. More often than note, the TA or lecturer handles the admin

Pros

Easy

Cons

Low hourly rate

Career suicide to work for them

It is the most worst mistake of my life working for them. They are not transformed and they have a long way to go. Immature individuals especially management

Pretty chilled and worth it

The job requires the bare minimum and you get paid that. Its a pleasure to do because of the students. I have no regrets on wish it paid just a little more.

I loved my team and my Mentor/ Manager

I had a great experience with Stellenbosch University. I had a great mentor and a great team. I know not everyone might have a great experience. It is certainly hard work and time consuming but I did love what I did back then.

Productive

Besides lecturing schedule, there is no fixed work-time (flexible hours). However, academia is results driven, and as such most days are spent in the laboratory (10+ hours per day).

Frustrating and relaxed

I worked at the department of client services, which is typically relaxed and casual. However, it was the start of the new academic year so it was demanding and challenging. I learned how to work with many diverse clients and to always be professional, communicative, calm and helpful. I learned that I flourish within a well structured work environment that brings more challenges and the ability to solve problems directly. I loved working under a leadership style that gives me autonomy.

Intellectually stimulating and challenging working environment with a great job location

A typical work day started early and was filled with interaction with students and academics. My job pushed me to challenge myself and presented troubleshooting on a daily basis. Time management and prioritisation was two important elements of my job which was fast paced. The campus culture allowed for growth opportunities. Management was supportive.

Decent culture

The place had a decent culture surrounding campus. The social life was rich and rewarding. My academic modules were challenging enough, and I had enough free time

Productive but stressfull at times

Busy day solving research related queries about research activities in communities, learnt patience in managing field workers and explaining research to community members who did not understand scientific research and its principles. I enjoyed community events where I got exposure to different cultures within the diverse communities we worked in.The hardest job was dealing with communities who have different political ideologies as this affected the research activities within those communities.
