      Research assistant for summer

      Pros

      I really liked the team and the work was meaningful.

      Cons

      They would not let me work for more than 20 hours a week because I was a student at a UC, but it was during summer break when I was not taking classes, so the restriction to part-time work made no sense. HR took forever to do background check even though I had already volunteered, which was a shame and made me very sad and feel unappreciated by HR.

      Admin Float Pool

      Feb 7, 2021 - Administrative Specialist in Santa Monica, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great pay and super supportive and positive work culture at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center. In my experience so far, UCLA Health really walks the walk when it comes to their mission and values. Nurses, Admins, IT, and Supervisors all work together as a team, and it's fun to be at work, even when circumstances get stressful. Questions, concerns, and suggestions are welcomed and listened to so that any opportunities for improvement can be taken advantage of. Despite being in a job that could easily feel thankless and super repetitive, I'm incredibly happy to go to work everyday.

      Cons

      I don't mind it, but some might see this as a con: working in the Admin Float Pool does require some level of flexibility with your schedule. After a couple of weeks, though, you are welcome to apply to permanent jobs within the company as an internal applicant. So if the float schedule really isn't your bag, you can pursue another position.
