Its not a bad position, there are just some things that seem iffy with the position. From time to time there will be times where it'll be slow paced and boring, so bring a book. Other times it would be fast paced.

The job was simple. I was basically Janitorial staff and Gym Bouncer: managing people with access to the CCSU gyms and cleaning equipment and machines. Job wasn't hard in the slightest but wasn't that engaging either. Pay was alright, not bad in the slightest. Only complaint was we couldn't utilize time for studying or any class related material. Overall, alright job.

My typical day on the job is finding new and fun ways to bring awareness to assault on and off campus. I also help provide different resources and support information. I have learned many different and eye opening information from this job. This job has given me an amazing experience helping people even by the littlest ways. Helping people learn more about assault and proving that myths are just that ...myths. That it could happen to ANYONE at ANYTIME. The work place is a very positive work place. I love just working my co-workers on a subject that some people usually push to the side or keep quiet about. The hardest part about the job for me is just wanting to do more. I want to do so much more to let everyone know about this topic. I want to help people gain their voice and to know that it will be ok and that you are NOT alone.

Student Worker (Current Employee) – New Britain, CT – December 31, 2017
As a student worker, it was challenging at first to balance school and work. However, my boss told me on the first day that school comes first, so if I ever needed to adjust my hours, that would be do-able. I have since been working at Central for a little over 3 years now and I love it. The main part of my job is data entry and data check, which is very important because I am the last person to see the information before it gets published anywhere. My co-workers are always very supportive and they show their appreciation for me by buying me lunch every now and then.
Office hours sometimes conflict with my class times
