A serious productive place
Office Assistant (Current Employee), Riverside, CAJuly 23, 2014
Pros: personable staff
Cons: pay
A typical day was set with specific duties that were encouraged to be completed at a designated deadline. I learned quality over time and many other things. Management is serious but also very forgiving. My co-workers were great! The hardest part of the job was getting around the specific ways things were supposed to be done.The most enjoyable part – more... was setting up for events with my co-workers. – less

phone calls, customer service, resident's assistant
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Riverside, CAJuly 6, 2014
Would answer phones. Help new students move into the dorms. Help out parents with information about the school.
I learned that every customer loves a person that can make their day and feel like they've gotten the help that they needed.
Management was great and I loved working for them. They set a standard for their workers and I followed their rules.
Co-workers – more... were good. I did not mind covering some of the shifts for my co-workers. I saw them as a family.
Hardest part about the job is making sure the area does not get too busy.
The most enjoyable part about the job is you get to meet different types of people everyday. – less

Not productive but valuable
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Riverside, CAJune 13, 2013
A typical day at work was trying to follow procedures of a studied work for preparation of developing and characterizing catalysts for Olefin Metathesis. My co-worker was a friend and classmate, so the work environment was enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is not have any of our materials contaminated. The laboratory was not fit for certain procedures – more... to reduce contamination. The most enjoyable part of the job was looking at color and chemical changes of solutions that have undergone photochemistry. – less

Work and Study at a progressive Adventist Institution
College Writing Instructor (Former Employee), Riverside, CAMarch 13, 2013
La Sierra provides its students and employees seemingly endless creative opportunities to produces new events, clubs, course work, and publications. Unfortunately, not much funding is available for such programs. If a student or employee is driven to succeed at La Sierra, she will have unlimited creative control, but may struggle to find funding or – more... stir up student interest. – less

It was nice and an experience that treasures memories.
Housekeeper (Former Employee), La Sierra, CAOctober 5, 2012
Pros: worked around my class scheduele.
Cons: i didn't get paid enough to make ends meet, sometimes, due to holidays.
I cleaned offices, classrooms, bathrooms, labs, teacher's offices, cadaver room, library, dorms, etc. I enjoyed the days that I worked there. The people there were so nice to work with. I learned the various cultures when talking with students. It opened up my drab, dull life; listening to other's stories of where they came from and what they believe.
