Good place to be a student worker.
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee), Chico, CAJune 18, 2015
Overall my time at chico state as a student at CSUC was great. I worked for the Research Foundation under the IT department. it was was very flexible and very understanding of my time, often encouraging me to complete school tasks at work if need be. The management around it was a bit wish-washy but for the most part they do understand that student-workers are students first. And they also try to incorporate the realism of an actual office environment so professionalism is always expected. The hardest part of the job was usually just a busy day when lots of things happened to go wrong all at once and you have to prioritize which ones to get to first. But the best part usually came right after that in the form of lots of hours to finish up homework to get ready for free weekends. Great place.

Human Powered Vehicle Project (Former Employee), Chico, CAJune 8, 2015
Being a Student in California State University gave me the knowledge I need to Start my work life, different from other colleges in this country, the fact that part of the graduation process is to have a successful senior project really gives you the trustworthy perspective of the duties as a Mechanical Engineer in the work field, since the project brainstorm, to the designs, and the construction of the machine and the implementation of it to an actual manufacturing process was an outstanding experience.

Great experience in the law enforcement field
Community Service Officer (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAJune 2, 2015
Pros: Experience in criminal justice field
Cons: Lots of walking to cover campus
Typical day for me was to provide security for the entire campus of the university. I would also walk the parking lots to enforce parking regulations and issue citations. I learned proper law enforcement radio edict and processes of law enforcement procedures. My management was great, very helpful with questions and guidance. Worked with a great group of individuals, we worked together very well to get done each days tasks. Hardest part of the job was able to cover as much ground as we needed to with just 2 campus service officers on duty. But the most enjoyable part was the interaction with staff and students on campus.

helping out anywhere and everywhere i could never felt better
Academic Assistant (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAMay 31, 2015
Pros: learned even more than i did the first time around
Cons: all good things come to an end
Assisting in the soc and psych departments helped me learn some very basic aspects of an administrative setting while allowing me to maintain my intellectual curiosity for what i learned and was a thoroughly enjoyable experience! Duties included being there before lectures sometimes to print off exams for students and also helping students learn some concepts that were difficult for them. I worked with some assistants who seemed very apathetic and that was perhaps one let down during the experience. the most difficult part of this experience was frankly not still being able to do it after i graduate. I especially loved helping students learn when lectures weren't quite enough.

Review Summary
Information Specialist (Former Employee), Fullerton, CAMay 29, 2015
On a typical day at work I interacted with our diverse student population. I learned how to effectively use my time in order to complete all assigned task. My management helped me grow in my leadership skills. The hardest part of the job was managing the high influx of paperwork we received while still attending to the needs of our walk-ins. The most enjoyable part of the job was assisting the students flourish in their extra curricular activities.
