Pros
Cons
  • I would say that the only con would be that there really wasn't much room for growth (in 6 reviews)

  • And all of the regular cons regarding on-campus jobs (low pay, crappy hours, etc) (in 5 reviews)

    I have been working at University of San Diego full-time

    Pros

    USD has a beautiful location in San Diego with great facilities. It's between the 5 and 163, so it's very accessible. The people who work here are friendly and it's a good work culture. Our health insurance plan and vacation/sick time benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Parking is terrible. Tuition remission isn't guaranteed, so keep that in mind. It's not easy to get promoted because no one leaves, which is also a good sign.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop sending so many campus-wide emails. It's crazy. A weekly digest would be great, but even a daily digest would be an improvement.

    Pros

    Breath taking views, people are nice and always smiling ready to greet you.

    Cons

    Parking & food can be pricy. A lot of competition within the ranks, which can motivate stepping on people to get ahead.

    Pros

    The benefits are wonderful and the campus is beautiful. I enjoy the working environment and the people are very supportive.

    Cons

    I would love the opportunity to have flex schedules. The professional growth path is not clear and there is little room to negotiate salaries.

    More transparency

    I worked at University of San Diego part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked in Residential Life and you got to meet and get to know a lot of the people in the administration as well as really get to be involved in campus life.

    Cons

    If you weren't an RA, sometimes it felt like you weren't as included in the office life, since so many people working there are RAs.

    I worked at University of San Diego part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great environment to work in and I can honestly say I loved coming to work on most days. This is the only job I have ever had that appreciated everything I do and did their best to support me through my classes and learning the job trade. I cannot thank the university enough for this opportunity, and I am currently looking for other jobs within the university as a result of how much I loved it. Thanks USD!

    Cons

    The only downside to working here was there was a cap on my hours. I am a poor college student looking to make some money and I was capped on 15 hours a week. Granted, this is still a lot of work time, but I would have liked the chance to work an extra hour if I had some free time, or had a day off from classes.
