Financial Aid Officer-Loan Coordinator (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 13, 2017
I loved working at PLNU. The culture of the campus was supportive and family oriented. The hardest part of the job was the workload I had to take on as a remote employee, but the most enjoyable part of the job was the atmosphere, the support from management and that I did not have to take work home with me.
Skills Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 2, 2017
This job is reserved for senior nursing students and can be competitive to come by. This job is a great refresher for senior students when it comes to basic nursing skills that were learned in sophomore year.
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 29, 2017
The caliber of students makes this a great place to work as well as the view. Professors are given a lot of autonomy in their curriculum development which was wonderful. While female professors are increasing, the good ol boys club still exists unfortunately. More diversity in hiring (in all areas) needs to improve.
Research Associate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 12, 2017
Point Loma Nazarene University's chemistry department is a great place to work. The management is fair, benefits are reasonable, and the work of investing in student's lives is important and rewarding.
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 4, 2017
I had three Jobs at Point Loma, Office Assistant, Lab Assistant and Research Assistant. You don't get benefits because they're student work places for work studies only on campus. You go on vacation whne the campus goes on vacation. If you're sick you call out its fine.
summer researchers got breafast snacks and lunch once a week from the staff
sometimes research would take longer than 8 hours a day but it would average out to 8 hours, Lab Assisting was without cons, as was office assisting
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 14, 2017
Job security was good, I was never in risk of losing my position. Very relaxed as per my position. But knowing the professor for the position was required so there wasn't very much competition for said position.
Beautiful location in a traditional Christian environment
International Ministries Assistant (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 29, 2017
The organization is growing and necessary changes are taking place. This is a great place to work if you like to surround yourself with natural beauty; the ocean view is amazing! Most students and co-workers are pleasant to work with. There are great benefits but the pay is not very good and there aren’t very many opportunities for advancement.
Great benefits like health insurance, 403B, appreciation events, reduced meals in the cafeteria, tuition remission, reduced tuition for dependents, and discounted development center for children ages 3 and 4.
Few opportunities for growth, low pay, HR does not always respond well or fast to complaints, minimal training
Groundskeeper (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 20, 2017
The people I work with are very nice and hard working people. The only problem is that we're working a full time job that normally would pay 5 -10 dollars an hour more minimum at anywhere else in San Diego. We're all frustrated with the low pay, and the HR department does whatever it (legally) can to not give us our benefits. The plus side to the job, is being able to work right next to the ocean, we do get a good amount of time off. The most enjoyable part of the day is being able to work outdoors right next to the ocean. the hardest part is not making enough money to be able to live in San Diego. I've had to get a second job just to make ends meet.
Field Experience in Elementary Schools (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 9, 2017
Loved my experience doing fieldwork and was able to grow and apply knowledge from my classes. It showed me the ups and downs of working in an Elementary School and what a typical workday would look like.
Athletic Communications Intern (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 1, 2017
I thoroughly enjoy the job they give you a lot of flexibility to accomplish the job that is assigned to you. The staff is very friendly and helpful if you have any questions. Being able to participate in the experience of the game day in various sports is a delight.
Summer Research Associate (Current Employee) – Point Loma, CA – April 27, 2017
Working as a Summary Research Associate at PLNU was great. The other students working there were a pleasure to work with. Professors are greatly helpful, and willing to teach you all relevant lab skills.
