    I worked at UC Santa Cruz full-time (Less than a year)


    Easy Going, low stress hands on job. Great people to work with (students and supervisors), and due to the small working crews, the crews get to know each other very well. Working over in summer in beautiful UCSC is always a pro.


    Even for students, the pay is quite low for the work being completed, borderline minimum wage as the supervisors assume the people working are only there for a short period.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities for the student workers to advance and progress, as most student workers are there for at least four years.
