Senior Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Santa Cruz, CA – April 23, 2018
Many of my coworkers are amazing human beings and truly try their best to help our residents and overall community. However, like every place, there are a few individuals while getting paid a larger amount or the same amount as others don't complete the same workload. It is difficult to find other department information because it is not updated on a frequent basis. However, the work environment is wonderful and supportive in many cases.

Library Circulation Desk Assistant (Former Employee) – Santa Cruz, CA – August 23, 2017
I spent three years working at the UCSC libraries as a student and cannot recommend it enough. The staff and management clearly explain your duties and goals as an employee and make you feel at home with the staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was assisting fellow students, faculty, and patrons with locating their desired research materials - which ultimately taught me to be a patient listener/communicator!
Quiet work environment, friendly staff, and flexible hours.
Primarily a part-time student job and not always possible to transition into full-time
