Training is fun but you have take a class. The golf car training class is really interesting.
training is always available
It was learn on the job. No real training, just informal, then you go off to work and learn there.
Get necessary experience for the job position I currently am working for, but nothing much beyond that.
At a UC I would expect learning to be an important part of any student job, but it seemed to me like getting stuck with trivial work and not getting training past the initial weeks was normal. I would have really liked more training during student jobs (for job and extra-job subject matter), and a more active role from the seniors in passing on knowledge.
Any training is project specific, but in general, training will be provided if necessary
Training was 2 weeks long and went over a lot of interesting topics. A lot of the training is on the job which I find to be a much better system and allows for lots of learning. Management is very lenient with mistakes and is understanding.
Job Training sessions were very organized and informative. We also had a chance to pair up with other tutors and some activities(i.e. teaching each other the subject of your choice, demonstrating how you will interact with your tutees)
Well, the job training, I must say, is great, since the jobs you are applying for if it is a research position, is most likely building off the exact same stuff you've been learning in classes. Sometimes the very same instructor who taught the course which gave you the skills that you would be using in your research position is also your supervisor for the position.
You have to be a grad student :(
