A wonderful enviroment to work
Front Counter - DSPS Student Assistant (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – June 18, 2015
I work in the Disabled Student Services and Programs department. I work with a diverse population. A typical work day would be having a lot of students coming in as drop ins and trying to get their accommodations, not understanding why they need to see their counselor at least twice a semester. We have a wonderful team working the front counter, we all get along, we help each other out when we can. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people, every person that comes in has a different story to tell and it is just so interesting to me. The hardest part of my job is not being able to help someone. What have I learned since being here? A lot. I have learned that people with special needs are just as special as anyone else. And to see them graduate, it is just so amazing. When I was growing up, people would pick on the kids with special needs and to work with them on an everyday basis is amazing. I really enjoy my job, but because I am student help thru a federal work study program, my time is running out and I am being forced to look for other employment.
since I am taking classes part-time, i am able to be employed at the same time
minimum wage, no benefits
