Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – August 11, 2018
This position mostly involved grading papers but I also had to proctor during exam days. It's a small position with not many hours which makes it a perfect job to get involved in whichever department your major falls under.
Clerical Assistant II (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – August 7, 2018
While at CSUN I worked in the Counseling Services dept. Great group of counselors who usually work well together. This is a state university and sometimes personalities and work ethic could cause conflicts. Most counselors want to help the students, but some were not effective and could cause strife within the dept.

Administrative Support Coordinator II (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 25, 2018
Management was not interested in the benefit of the staff member, and only interested in saving money so there could be more for them. Claimed to do everything for the students but only made decisions based on how it would benefit them. Bullying runs rampant throughout their office culture, and those that try to do something about it are fired. The strong prey on the weak at CSUB, and I happened to be an unlucky weak one who was let go while on my third month of disability. Non-management personel are expected to do the work of their superiors for half the salary. Truly a nightmare to work at.
really good pay and benefits
not enough pay and benefits in the world to justify treatment

Feeling sorry for the other students who were not awarded
Fun work environment with room to improve one's self.
E.O.P. Renaissance Peer Mentor (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – July 8, 2018
As a peer mentor, one worked with the youth in a flexible set schedule based on availability. This position allowed for guiding and supporting youth through the Cal State system whether they transferred from a community college or directly from high school. The workplace is fast, flexible, and friendly culture. The hardest experience with this job is that of saying goodbye to those that one has guided during his or her work term. The most enjoyable is that of helping the youth seek and maintain their goals through the journey of education.
flexible, friendly environment, room for self-improvement
