Reliable and Stable Work-Study Position with Amazing Co-Workers
HR Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Salinas, CA – July 11, 2017
I worked at the Human Resources Department as the Office Receptionist and I thoroughly enjoyed my work experience there. I worked for everyone inside the HR department, but I had a main boss that I went to for everything. She was extremely kind and generous and very knowledgeable in her field.
A typical day at a work involved coming in and checking-in with the boss, then retrieving the mail to distribute through the HR office. After that, I usually had different projects (making files/folders etc) for me and I finished all the projects earlier than the end of my shift so I was able to do my homework or study when there was no one who needed assisting.
The workplace culture is great. Because it is a Work-Study position, you (student) gets the benefit of not having to commit to a full-time job position and also have a job position that was really lenient to your school schedule.
There wasn't anything "hard" about this job. The only 'hard' part was that you only got a maximum of 20 hours a week so although the pay was consistent, you only got that set amount per month. It's also a monthly salary so if you have bills to pay weekly, this may be difficult.
However, everything else, I have thoroughly enjoyed having been able to be a a part of the HR team back in the day. I highly recommend doing this position if you're eligible for Work-Study at Hartnell College.
Relaxed working schedule (can do homework or study when it isn't busy)
Not much of a advancement in job position because it is Work-Study.
