    Excellent basic benefits for those working at least 60% time; in at least some positions, these benefits continue into retirement, which is a major plus. There is an employee cost for some of these, but far less than might be found in a comparable private-enterprise position.

    Good: - take courses for free - health insurance - easy job Bad: - No career development - Salary in lower than the job market

    Not many benefits for part-time really, except unpaid sick leave and a 401k. We did get an employee discount for some food vendors at the mall though (usually 10%). We also had the option to take classes costing up to $600* (previously $1,000*) per year for free if they didn't conflict with our work schedule (usually that was night classes offered 6:30-9:30pm). *note: may be a little off on these numbers.

    There are different levels of health insurance options with various cost. If you want a good coverage, the cost can be very high. Vision plan is through VSP and its most basic plan you could ever get, almost useless.

    By the hour, no benefits. If i was sick i would have had to just ask my supervisor and make up the hours another way.

    Great benefits - no complaints. Started with 2 weeks vacation for first 3 years working there, with additional 1 week shutdown during Christmas time (since its a university and there's no one on campus whatsoever). After 3 years, got 3 weeks vacation, for 4 weeks total (which includes the shutdown week in Christmas). Also 13 paid holidays which, with additional 1 personal holiday that you can take anytime. There's a 403b instead of 401k because we're talking public-sector here. Health insurance is awesome. In 2017 Kaiser was $0. For big families this is huge. Of course vision and dental as well. You get 2 dentist visits per calendar year. That seems pretty good - clean teeth at least. Also I got glasses every year. Not much in the way of "company" perks like the free food at Google, or free gym, or coffee / water cooler room. You have to pay for all of those at SFSU. You have to pay for the gym (though the new gym is new and state of the art). Its a school with a founding date of 1899 and there are some improvements to the buildings but there are some older buildings as well. There's a school bookstore right on campus and this can be very convenient to grab some batteries, pens or notepad, books, cards for birthdays etc. Lots of eateries on campus, and walking distance to the Stonestown mall, but I digress.
