A prime opportunity to study at work
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: can study at work.
Cons: no breaks
This being a position for college students, the ability to study while working was the best part of the job.

A typical shift is either 2 hours in the daytime or 3 hours at night. On shift, one registered incoming guests of residents, answered the phone and directed calls, helped residents with their mail and packages and any facility issues they might – more... have. One was also responsible for certain actions in the event of a fire, fire drill, or earthquake.

I learned to handle irate residents, to call for help when I needed to, to multi-task and to answer phones.

Management was very supportive if a little lackadaisical about scheduling.

My co-workers were timely and responsible. It being a job where only one person is working at a time, we didn't interact much at work.

The hardest part of the job was staying awake at 3:35 in the morning.

The most enjoyable part was seeing my fellow students everyday. – less

Media and Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJune 11, 2014
I have learned so much from my experience at University of San Francisco! My strength in research and program coordination comes from the many hats that I wore during the three years that I spent working at USF. Accountability is the key to success here. My co-workers were my family. The hardest part my job was leaving it because I had to move to Seattle.

I was able to learn a lot from working with my boss. She allowed me to take on many roles as a Office Assistant, which will help me in my future. My main job was providing reception duties, but was not limited to that. I helped transform the inventory room, where my boss and I reorganized it from scratch.

Fun place to work with a lot of new technology to work with.
Network Admin - Student Specialist (Current Employee), San Francisco, CADecember 9, 2013
Generally the day starts off by walking in and logging into the work computer, check my queue for tickets which specify my tasks for the day.
I have learned a lot of new things regarding how NAC filters work, what are the important specs that need to be configured in a switch. How the fiber link provides the data connection, and many other Cisco equipment – more... related information.
The management is really flexible and understand the fact that we are first the students of the University and academics is the number one priority.
The team that I work with is wonderful and they teach me something new everyday at work, and every time they encounter something different that I may not have come across, they make it a point to call me in and show me how those issues are tackled. – less

Let's Speak French
French Tutor (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 2, 2013
Pros: on campus, positive student interactions
Cons: low pay
I was a French conversation tutor for 2 semesters while I was attending the University of San Francisco. I worked with students of all ages and all levels of French comprehension. The hardest part of the job was having different lesson plans for the different groups of students. I couldn't simply use the same exercise on first year students that I would – more... on seniors, for example.
The most enjoyable part of the job was having conversations with students whose vocabulary was extensive enough to have interesting and compelling discussions. – less

Great location
University Instructor (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMay 4, 2013
Pros: beautiful location
Cons: it's teaching wayward, burned out students!
If you are willing to get a parking ticket every day, this is the place to be. San Francisco is amazing! The teaching position left me wondering if this is what I really wanted to do. It was not necessarily the school, but the fact that the BSN students were in their last semester and were burned out. They took the path of least resistance and gave – more... me a major run for my money. No pay could be worth it. – less
