Office Student Staff

August 2018 • Irvine, CA

What I liked

The office staff is very welcoming and have a warm demeanor. They are also very flexible and allow me to work within my school schedule that allows me to work when need be.

What I wish was different

The job is very monotonous. I've always been a person that likes activity in my work. The work I'm assigned there kind of has me sitting in my seat for a long time, inputting student information into a system for an shift per day. Personally, it becomes a bit mundane.

Advice

It's a relaxed setting. As long as you're warm and friendly to everyone, they'll welcome you in just like family and treat you as such. They're very understanding because they've all been through the college system (some even from UCI) so they can empathize with a student's schedule. Just don't abuse their kindness or overstep their boundaries of how much they're willing to give. But it's a fantastic place to work especially for a student!
