I worked at CSU Fullerton (More than a year)
Flexible hours to do research on my own or group. Fill in timesheet by myself and as long as the progress justifies the filled-in hours, it is all good.
I guess it depends on who you work for. In my case, I didn't experience any real cons.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CSU Fullerton (Fullerton, CA) in October 2016.
The process was pretty straight forward with basic behavioral questions and few job related questions. The interview was conducted by 2 people and focus was more on knowledge based on excel.
