DEPARTMENT ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  Chemistry DepartmentAugust 11, 2019
A typical student worker's day lasts about eight hours.
I picked up a lot of useful skills while working here as an employee. Working with the University is a learning experience. Gives students an opportunity to develop work and personal relationships with faculty and staff. Very kind and amazing leadership that enhance a person's knowledge and help them get integrated. Developing useful business relationships is by far the most advantageous aspect of working at this university. The university itself offers a lot of amenities to provoke creative thinking and relax after a hectic work schedule.
Pros
Plenty of breaks, Kind Staff, healthcare etc.

Great Experience, professors are very supportive, practicum training is challenging and helps in acquiring the necessary skills to work in the field. The experience and knowledge gained are worth the effort.

A good place to start gaining experience but no career advancement. Very limited opportunities for growth.
Articulation Officer (Current Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAJune 24, 2019
A place to start but not to end. Management restructuring is needed in every department for a much needed positive working environment with committed workforce.

Could not have asked for a better place to work
Operations Assistant II (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAJune 9, 2019
CLU promotes a tight-knit community and they hold true to this in every aspect. They maintain sight of the mission and hold tight to their values. The work days are 8-5 and it is encouraged to maintain those hours without going over. I was lucky enough to have a supervisor who allowed autonomy and looked forward to feedback on how to make our office better.

Student Support Services Student Intern (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAFebruary 18, 2019
I loved working for the university's Student Support Services. They gave a me a fun learning environment and pushed me to challenge myself. I learned how to support students in a school setting and on a more personal level. In addition, I got to work closely with the counselors. A typical day consisted of responding to Emails, answering phone calls, making copies for the counselors student files and making marketing materials for the events and workshops.

Master Teacher (Current Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAJanuary 19, 2019
CLU is a wonderful place to work. It is family friendly and supportive of it's employees. Highly recommend this employer. It is a private school so the pay is less than a state school but still competitive for the area.

Student Worker
Events / Athletics Departments Student Worker (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CADecember 27, 2018
It was a nice way of making some extra money between classes and after athletics, but was not flexible and very erratic. Sometimes working all through the night, and other times working a half hour. Poor management and desperate for employees to set up for events and conferences.
Pros
Extra income
Cons
Inconsistent

Great place to work. It has everything you would expect of a bigger university while still hosting an intimate atmosphere. Class sizes are small with a great student to teacher ratio.

Graphic Arts Internship (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CASeptember 21, 2018
This university is a hidden gem! Small campus so you get to know almost everyone, plus, it's easy to meet with your professors and the administrators. You really feel like they are there for you!

Beautiful campus and inviting staff members. The staff prioritizes winning in athletics; however, the strength and conditioning department did not offer enough opportunity for growth.

August -November 2015 Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CASeptember 8, 2018
If a company you’re pursuing is truly transparent with its current employees, they should be as honest as possible with prospective ones, too. And if the interviewer doesn’t respond positively to your question and disregards the feedback of the company’s employees, this is a huge red flag indicating you should look elsewhere. Plus, interviewers should already be aware of what’s being said online, even anonymously. And if they’re not, that also says something about devaluing their employees’ voices.

Assistant to the Electrician (Current Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CASeptember 6, 2018
I worked as a student with an internship. My internship provided me with about 11-15 hours a week and did not feel like an internship. I was in charge of the intramural program and it was very relaxed and had minimal supervision.

Design and Marketing Intern (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAAugust 1, 2018
Working for the school through the work-study program was a great learning experience although they do not give many hours. However CLU staff care about the students and are always willing to work with them.

Assistant Director, Annual Fund Program (Current Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAJuly 31, 2018
Hardest part of the job is meeting with new donors and gauging their interests and how you can fit your goals in with theirs. However, it is also the most rewarding because you get to meet some really cool people from all walks of life.
