    I have been working at CalSTRS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Onsite Gym, full service cafe, Leed Energy Building, clean and newer building, Training Programs, good place for walk breaks, friendly people, great recognition program, 2nd building expansion soon and will include a daycare with another gym and cafe, cheaper onsite parking than most agencies, bike rentals program. Compensation for classes taken at colleges that promote career growth

    Cons

    new employees will be put on waitlist for onsite parking due to 2nd building construction, will have less parking for staff when fully staffed because they encourage carpool and other alternative transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Many people are stuck at the AGPA level and don't want to be managers. Those that do become managers do it for the money and that is why we have some bad managers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CalSTRS (Sacramento, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It took three months for them to get back for an interview. Any state job will take awhile for a response. I applied through UEI jobs as a sac state student. Advice before going for the interview is be yourself and have confidence.
