    Former Employee - Recreational Operations in Berkeley, CA

    I worked at University of California Berkeley part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working within the UC Berkeley community was allowed for many opportunities to meet different people as well as develop strong skills with clients and customer service. It was a great balance between school, work, and social time since they all were incorporated as part of the job.

    Cons

    The only downside to working at the Recreational Sports Facility at UC Berkeley was the late hours of the closing shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to adopt better technology at the front and back desks (locker room) at the Recreational Sports Facility instead of investing in extraneous technological advances in the lobby, i.e. the touch screens in the lobby. Patrons benefit from newer and more efficient computers that the staff use at the front and back desks, and not so much from the touch screen computers in the lobby that provide basically the same information that they could get at their homes and from the staff.

    Pros

    Very good benefits and health insurance. Very little overtime (except during peak hours) and relaxed atmosphere because it's a lifestyle job. Not a great place to spend a career, but okay.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, workload can be crazy sometimes and completely nonexistent at other times. In addition, the bureaucracy
