    The benefits of working as a work-study student at AVS - CSULB

    Student Worker (Current Employee)
    Long Beach, CA

    ProsAudio Visual Services has a budget to fund year-round part-time employment that extends beyond the federal work-study grant. Also, work hours are scheduled around classes, making it the perfect combination of location and flexibility for full-time students who need the extra income of a part-time job.

    ConsThe pay is not much, but I never planned on making a career out of it anyway.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Student support representative

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat intro level customer service job with many opportunities to grow. Also a great setting to learn more about technology and how to support different technologies.

    ConsCan get difficult to learn all of the different technology components of the university (i.e. e-mails system, MyCSULB, Beachboard, BeachID, password management) etc. The job can also get stressful at times dealing with so many calls and irrate or unhappy students/faculty members.
