Very good but needs improvement
Student Staff Assistant (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – June 5, 2017
University of Colorado is a great place to work at as a student, however just like any business their needs to be adjustments. Each year I have worked here there are some positional and systematic changes, which is nice to keep accommodating to students needs but needs a major systematic makeover to stay consistent. They need to readjust the HR system ASAP, it is a mess and sometimes have my finances affected by it which can be stressful. Resident Advisors are treated fairly but on call requires to work desk shifts unpaid which is very hard especially as a student and should not be the case, have been exhausted many times and has affected my school work because of it. Need to work on stricter consequences for student staff who do not follow through with work and students who consistantly violate policy. The lax system puts a lot of weight on staff and can be frustrating when told to uphold policy expectation when their is little to no follow through with consequences. However, overall goals and expectations of the university is amazing, best place I've worked and really to try to help their student staff.
