    I worked at UC Riverside part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Brilliant coworkers, team spirit, work together for a common good. Everyone is willing to teach and most are willing to learn.

    Cons

    long commute for me but close if you live in Moreno Valley, San Bernardino or downtown Riverside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did feel that a lot of money was spent on unnecessary things. i.e multiple monitors, super-fast laptops, when we needed money for other research projects.

    the process was pretty smooth. You apply then you get interviewed by a panel of 2 people. Basic questions( tell me about yourself, why do you want to be an RA, etc). then you take a class which is like a 6 week interview. they then pick the best people in the class for the job. while your in the class make sure that you are outgoing and speak up don't blend in to the class.
