    Pros

    My internship as a Staff Writer with Sac State was a positive experience. They give you the chance to prove yourself. All yo have to do is sign up and your basically immediately on the Staff.

    Cons

    A lot of work. Can't take too many classes while also doing this internship. It was a rewarding experience though. I tried taking 21 units and doing it, which didn't work out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to build the reputation of Sac state university. CSUS is a great environment for higher education.

    Pros

    - Flexible in who they choose to hire due to student population - Hours for seasonal part time work were decent (up to 40 at one point) - Training covers everything you need to know - Most coworkers pleasant

    Cons

    - Some coworkers unpleasant (normal to any big corporation) - Little opportunity to advance from season full time to permanent positions (normal to any temp job)

    Advice to Management

    I am overall satisfied with how I was treated at the company, no big areas of concern.

    Pros

    Great campus, the Adjunct program coordinator was great, the professors I interacted with were great.

    Cons

    Remuneration is paltry, you're there mostly to get teaching experience and have something for a resume.

    Pros

    great people to work with and lot of opportunities to learn and grow professionally, good starter job out of college, beautiful campus, close to home

    Cons

    getting paid once a month, paying for parking when you don't get paid that well and its not guaranteed.


  10. Student Assistant

    Pros

    Very good company to work with especially if you are a student. You don't need to mind about transportation and the staffs prioritize your education progress.

    Cons

    The salary is not that higher compared to the private company. And also it is much better to work as an part time intern related to your field than as a student assistant in school.

    Pros

    Its on campus and if you're a student, its really convenient.

    Cons

    No raises for students (ESPECIALLY IN IRT) when I hear when other students in other departments get raises.

    Advice to Management

    Yearly raises.
