Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CAMay 9, 2018
There are definitely fun things to do on campus but it can be challenging with veteran staff. It can be challenging to come from the private sector to the public sector.

Severely Underpaid
Evaluator (Current Employee) –  Enrollment ServicesApril 23, 2018
Don't work here unless you are living at home with your parents OR if you're ok with being under-paid. Bite the bullet, get your degree, and get the heck out. You will rarely see any pay increases, and you will probably never be promoted. Too many unclear leadership roles and not enough front-line workers.
Pros
Nice campus, benefits, location.
Cons
Poor pay, schedule, lack of pay increases, no room for growth.

Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) –  Long Beach, CAMarch 31, 2018
Relaxed environment with a lot of freedom. However, management finds ways to interfere in day to day issues that are easily handled without them, typically adding a great deal of frustration. Coworkers offer a lot of knowledge and insights.
Pros
Relaxed
Cons
Management can be useless and interfering

Licensed Vocational Nurse (Current Employee) –  Long Beach, CAFebruary 9, 2018
Working with students of all ages and backgrounds is the best experience at a student health center. Meeting new people everyday and helping them with minor concerns or issues that they may have has become second nature. My only suggestion to someone interested in working at a place like this is, if you are close to or almost ready for retirement, this is a place for you. I would not recommend working here as a new grad. Or even someone who hasn't experienced a hospital setting.
Pros
hours and being off on the weekends
Cons
Salary and no areas of advancement

Imaging Coordinator & Fixed Asset Support (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CADecember 28, 2017
The people were great, the professors were great, the staff and management were very thankful for everything that was done for them. However, there isnt much mobility in the University system because people tend to stay there until they are promoted or until they kick it.

The job is pretty chilled, professors help students with any advice they want. They give students flexibility to work at their own convenience, and make sure their studies don't get affected by the job.
