Good people that I got to work with
Tech Assistant III (Former Employee), Pullman, WAJune 6, 2014
The job itself was not too exciting, but it was good to have it. You work in a lab doing random little things, nothing too big. The people are nice and friendly and its nice for making a little extra cash if you need some.

The Best Place to Work while in College
CPR/First Aid Instructor (Former Employee), Pullman,WaMay 15, 2014
I loved my bosses and how they treated everyone with respect and encouraged employees to advance themselves into various positions within Washington State University Recreation Center. They were very understanding and always wanted their employees to know that school came first and work second. This was a great place to work when I was in college and – more... took courses. I was able to work my way up from a service attendant, to a Facility Manager, to a Certified Cpr/1st Aid Instructor. – less

Interesting and Fulfilling Work
Extension Educator (Current Employee), Pullman, WAApril 8, 2014
Being part of the nation's Cooperative Education System has been quite an interesting experience. I have enjoyed learning about the history of the movement and being a part of the expansion of the associated informal and non-formal educational offerings in my community and state. I have discovered that I am however a bit more of a generalist than is – more... conducive to advancement at my present institution. – less

University office with eclectic professors and dedicated support
Research & Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Vancouver, WAMarch 21, 2014
Pros: flexible working areas for projects and meetings
Cons: needs office automation, badly.
No two days enjoyed in the office of Liberal Arts and Sciences are the same. Most days are excellent due to the varied nature of tasks which are delegated by multiple faculty members -- the remaining few are hectic since funding for support staff is a budget shortfall.

Exciting experience that gave a lot of exposure to the University
ALIVE ORIENTATION COUNSELOR (Former Employee), Pullman, WAMarch 21, 2014
Amount of training seemed a bit excessive for some of the counselors but overall the training came in handy. Hours during the summer were insane but for an extroverted personality, it was an amazingly fun summer. Always something going on and needs to be met. Having 40+ coworkers was a fun experience and the responsibility that each orientation counselor – more... had was character building. Some petty-ness but overall a good work experience. – less

Overall, a great job location
Communications Advisor (Current Employee), Pullman, WAFebruary 23, 2014
Biggest qualm is advancement opportunities are few and far between with the bureaucratic nature of state jobs, as well as management not having the time to sit down and listen to your goals.

Pros: great benefits - state employee

WSU if you just want to go to work and do your job without much autonomy, and don't care about being rewarded for your work.
