I have been working at San José State University part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Being a Student Assistant has its perks. They work with your schedule, you are amongst your fellow students, and you gain knowledge about all CSU policies and forms at SJSU. You gain valuable office and administrative experience.

Cons

At times, students can be a little pushy or demanding. As a student assistant, you can only do so much when students miss deadlines or when professors are not in to speak with them. And in some offices, the department coordinators, the chair, or professors can be difficult to work with due to their stress or personalities. From a student assistant, the only growth in this position is to become an AC I not ACII which it seems more departments are looking for AC II.

    I worked at San José State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for, and there are a lot of very educated people working for this university.

    Cons

    Obviously people always want more pay, and that is true of this company as well, again my job was funded through the government, so there is not much one can do about getting a raise through your direct manager.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Keep up the good work!
