  • Sick Days  (5 comments)

    “Their sick day policy is great but they don't pay out when you leave, so you loose all your sick days if you don't use them.”

  • Tuition Assistance  (4 comments)

    “Amazing, almost fully covered if you are full time staff. Hard to work full time while going to school, but worth it.”

  • Paid Holidays  (3 comments)

    “You get more paid holidays than most private companies.”

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in San Luis Obispo, California

    Really good coverage at a minimal cost to employee - can have a dependent on HMO health care plan for as low as $30 a month and employee doesn't pay into dental or vision but gets good coverage for self and dependent.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Student Assistant in San Luis Obispo, California

    Part time job doesn't get benefits but the hours are flexible

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Lecturer in San Luis Obispo, California

    Cal Poly has a comprehensive pension program for employees who have been with the university for awhile. Newer employees still have a pension, but it is reduced to some extent.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current IT Student Assistant in San Luis Obispo, California

    As a part-time student assistant, there are no benefits that I am aware of, other than flexible hours based on the understanding of my current responsibilities as a student.

    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 Current Employee in San Luis Obispo, California

    California state benefits are great

    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.
