    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in San Luis Obispo, California

    California state benefits are great

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Lead Student Assistant in San Luis Obispo, California

    Since I was only a part-time employee, I did not qualify for any benefit packages. Yet, I do hear from supervisors and professionals that there is great medical, dental, and vision insurance.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in San Luis Obispo, California

    There are not really any benefits for this position due to the fact that it is a part time position for college students.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in San Luis Obispo, California

    The benefits are mediocre. Health eye and dental are good, but require deductibles. Employees pay union or non union dues, and parking. All is pretax, but it's still pricey and the pay is on the low end for the state if you're not an administrator.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Learning Community Coordinator in San Luis Obispo, California

    Benefits vary by position classification and union representation and are overall excellent.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Administrative Support Coordinator in San Luis Obispo, California

    Great benefits compared to most local jobs, but that's because benefits at most other jobs are terrible.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Operating Systems Analyst in San Luis Obispo, California

    The salary was decent, but the benefits and ability to complete a higher education degree while working full-time made it worth the time.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Instructor Student Assistant in San Luis Obispo, California

    As a student instructor assistant, there are no benefits

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in San Luis Obispo, California

    Best place, friendly people. You can grow as a professional. I will highly recommend to work here, beside you have the option of taking classes. Worse thing: parking and constant interaction with immature students.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current CSD in San Luis Obispo, California

    Coverage is not complete. I have the best insurance they offer, but the town does not have the medical staff to meet needs. You will wait months for a simple physical. CSD role is a live-on, and you will not be allowed to purchase a parking permit for your significant other/person that lives with you if you both have cars. Tuition Assistance - There is assistance for classes, but you are not allowed to take classes between 8-5. It is a benefit on paper, but you aren't allowed to use it depending on which department you work in.
