  1. "Federal Work-Study Student Employee"

    I worked at University of San Francisco part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for SHaRE was a great experience because I had many easygoing interactions with student residents, the workload was very doable, scheduling was flexible, and there was a $0.50/hr increase after working for a year and a positive evaluation.

    Cons

    Upper management didn’t really back up student employee safety concerns about Public Safety refusing to escort us to our cars after NOC shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Not much other than to improve the relationship between SHaRE employees (student or not) and Public Safety officers.

    I worked at University of San Francisco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were really exceptional and tuition remission is an unbeatable program.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't keeping up with cost of living in San Francisco. High turnover meant that we were constantly working with new people and having to start over when it came to building relationships and improving systems.

    Advice to Management

    Look at turnover and really try and figure out why you can't keep employees.
