I have been working at CAL State San Marcos part-time (More than 5 years)
Working for Accounts Payable, you will immerse your knowledge with various fields of profession and familiarize yourself with how they relate to your own profession. The responsibilities of a student assistant resembles that of an administrative support but deals with less rigors of responsibilities. The type of work you will be doing will help you develop job related skill sets that are globally practiced (e.g. Multitasking, exceptional customer service, pride in quality of work, etc.).
This job is not ideal for everyone, where one may prefer less challenging tasks and prefer settling for adequate skills sets. The needs of this job require a great sense of attention to details, accuracy, and more than minimal effort.
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at CAL State San Marcos (San Marcos, CA).
Very easy and comfortable in person interview. However there is a lengthy and difficult supplemental application essay that is required upon submission of application. The entire application submission to hiring process is extremely long.
