California State University Fullerton is a nice commuter school, scenery looks great to do assignments.
Wish they had nice study spots/library had bigger windows

Good benefits and salary; good location.
A lot of racial bias and favoritism related to putting representation of the underrepresented first. If you are white, probably should not apply to work here.

The scheduling in this position was good.
There is a huge issue with management being disorganized. It's very much a girl's club and if it's not done their way they get upset. They tend to belittle you or make it seem like they came up with the idea put in all the work and the issues or problems are your fault when they change their mind constantly and give varying answers,

The coworkers are too good for this office.
The pay inequity is the absolute worst I have ever encountered. New hires who are brought on the team after you WILL make more than you for the exact same position. They will make claims to fix it or make it right but it is always an empty promise. The “Leadership” team in the Office of Admissions is the worst management team I have ever worked for. They play favorites, lack accountability, and are overall immature and underdeveloped. They will divert all blame to “old management” from years ago when it is clear they are the problem. If you were a student assistant you will be put on the fast track to success, anyone else good luck.

Can be very chill at times but also can be super slow. When work picks up it's great.
Can be a little slow but that's fine for a student

My first job in an office setting and I was able to learn a lot of skills relating to clerical work. Was also able to work around my class schedules.
Most of the faculty in my department did not come in to the office. I only communicated with many of them through email.

You can work while taking classes to gain some extra experience outside and apply the knowledge you learn.
Getting payment was a hassle sometimes with filling out the contract.

My department helps me take advantage of all opportunities. They also challenge me in every way possible for my best interest
Outside of my department you get lost in the masses.
