    I have been working at UCLA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The location is literally right next to my classes, so it's really convenient. It depends on your job at UCLA, but my supervisor is really nice and sometimes they get lunch catered and I get to have some.

    Cons

    Nothing much cons, except it's hard to have school/work balance. But other than that it's fine

    Advice to Management

    There's really not much that can be improved. It's great!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UCLA.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. First round interview was behavioral (why do you want this job, what's a defining leadership experience, etc.) Second round interview was to work with a team to create a presentation that would be given to a hypothetical group of students. That was a bit tough, because you want to stand out but not be too dominant.
