No opinion of CEO

I have been working at UC Santa Cruz part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Leadership skills, Event Planning Experience, Networking abilities

Cons

Duty/Documentations were the least favorite thing that I had to do during my time there. However, it is necessary and part of the job. Sometimes people reacted negatively to your position, but you learned how to communicate with difficult people, which was extremely valuable.

Advice to Management

I loved being a CA, some of the most valuable experience I've had at UCSC

    Pros

    Free food Consistent Work On campus The main benefit is that this place is great for meeting other college students. It also allows you to have something on your resume for when you graduate.

    Cons

    Low pay (except for the top) Incompetent managers Sometimes there will be new rules that don't make any sense but you have to follow them. Every manager has a different set of rules that they adhere to. You must learn a different job for each manager.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize your rules.
