Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Berkeley, CA – July 9, 2018
A typical work day was being one of the first people in the officer for the morning, responsible for powering up the common areas and reviewing voicemails. The day was largely based around reviewing requests for recommendation letters to be sent out, waiting for email requests and uploading letters to corresponding schools. Responsible for shutting down the front office at closing time where students came in to speak with counselors, as well as shutting down the letter service office for the evening.

Working there was easy, relaxing, and most certainly community based. Everyone working there from assistants, to student workers, to professional staff were all like friends to me.

The University of California is a wonderful employer with very competitive salaries, excellent benefits, and terrific advancement and educational opportunities. They really care about their employees and strive to keep employees up to date on job skills and promotional opportunities. Their staff education classes and staff assistance programs are second to none. If you can secure a position with the UC, stay and make it a career.

Development and Campaign Coordinator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 3, 2018
I really enjoy working at UCLA. There is great camaraderie and appreciation of a job well done. I moved away from the events side of development at focused on the fundraising aspect of things to develop a more thorough knowledge of the nonprofit world. I learned various aspects from working with fundraisers directly to being involved with strategic planning for the campaign However, I missed the creativity of event planning so I have being given a few events to manage. I appreciate that when I express my desire to try new things at work, my supervisors support that.

PhD, Department of Sociology (Former Employee) – Davis, CA – June 27, 2018
Graduate School in the social sciences has increasingly declining returns. Not necessarily UCD's fault, but they certainly aren't doing anything to mitigate the structural conditions of University labor.
Part-time Barista (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 27, 2018
I enjoyed my time working as a barista for the school. The work environment remained the same. The same procedures (cleaning, stocking, etc) remained the same. Making coffees and taking orders only gets easier with time, and my coworkers were in my same age group. Teamwork rather than individualistic work was an aspect I really appreciated from this job because it allowed me to be dependable, as well as reliable for the work we produce. The hardest part of my job is the closing shift because there are only two people in store. The best part of my job was playing our own music and being around enjoyable people. Management was also very understanding of situations and scheduling as long as you spoke to them in advance.
CalTeach Intern- Internship (Former Employee) – Santa Cruz, CA – June 26, 2018
Working with University of California's programs / internships are a great way for one to "test out the waters" and see if they would be really interested in pursuing that career. Pretty friendly, if you speak up and ask, then you will receive.
SAII (Kitchen Staff) (Former Employee) – Davis, CA – June 25, 2018
Nothing too different from working at a fast-food restaurant other than the fact the dining commons are significantly larger that most dining establishments in town. Mostly working with other fellow undergraduate students with the occasional middle-aged folk, who tend to overly elaborate on the simplest job duties to the point where it becomes annoying and generates a natural tendency to avoid encountering them on the premises.
Free meal for every three~four hours working, consistent work practices
Difficulty getting time off when needed, dull work environment, cost of uniform taken out of first paycheck.
Undergraduate Internship Coordinator (Former Employee) – Berkeley, CA – June 25, 2018
This was a very intriguing experience for me. Every tuesday, a small group of undergrad psychologists would drive to Napa State Hospital. We'd meet at an office and then choose which unit each individual intended to visit. There was mentally ill patients from the courts because they committed a crime, there were mentally ill patients that didn't cause any harm, and there was a geriatric unit.
