    Former Employee - Peer Advisor in Santa Cruz, CA

    I worked at UC Santa Cruz part-time for more than 3 years


    Amazing supervisors and fantastic office relations. When I came into the office for the first time, I didn't know anyone within the school of engineering. After working there for two months I had grown to know almost every student and faculty within that department. I got to work with many different students and shaped my own development as an engineering student.


    I have no cons that I can sincerely list. I was always happy to go back into the office and to assist however I could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to treat the peer advisers as the valuable assets that they are. When working with disgruntled students, or dealing with a difficult academic curriculum, the office support is always appreciated.

There may or not be another student worker there to ask you questions as well so do not prepare any butt-kissing answers. They are looking for real personality not generic answers.
