Great benefits. Very laid back atmosphere. Great coworkers
Lot of slow time if it's not the start or end of the semester

Working as a tutor at long beach, atleast in the engineering department was a wonderful experience. Liza and Katarina were the best possible leadership to have along with friendly front desk staff that made working and interacting with students easy.
The only con would be occasional students who aren't looking for tutoring help and just for someone to do their work, but you will find this with any tutoring position and you are encourage and directed to only give tutoring help.

Great coordinator, great students, finally received a pay increase after years of fighting.
No opportunity for growth or the possibility to become full time. No benefits.
