Overall a good workplace

UKZN has its ups and downs. Your growth and development is based on who you work under and/ or mentored by. Some staff do not like to share their knowledge or assist, whereas others do so freely.

formative and educational experience

Lecturers and the management were the best, there more you engage with students, there more you enhance your teaching skills and learning more new things. Undergraduate can be handful and playful at times but i always remind them about the main reason of being in University and they start to behave

Pros

gaining knowledge

Cons

long hours of tutoring

productive and fun workplace

The environment is great students there don't look down on me as an assistance they are very helpful especially because there are things I was not familiar with especially when it comes to typing assignment for the student I was assisting so they will help me with the guidelines for the assignments and how do I get certain information for that particular assignment. the staff there was very patient because they understood the position we were in. The lectures always asked me if I'm still following. It was only hard because we would work even at night to make sure that we are not left behind on her school work.

Pros

none

Cons

long hours
