Working there was fine
Peer Learning Advisor (Former Employee) –  Sydney, Au9 January 2019
Working there was fine but the hours were inconsistent and that is hard if you are trying to make enough to pay rent while at the same time being a student.

Not a bad place to work.

Enjoyable workplace insofar as it offers large flexibility in hours. The downside is that the flexibility often manifests as an inability to receive shifts for protracted periods of time
Pros
Flexible hours

Long spells without shifts

Casual-Full Time, Barista (Current Employee) –  Camperdown NSW10 June 2018
Great job with flexible hours and competitive pay (I was honestly surprised). Management is solid but somewhat hands off. That's a pro or con depending on how you lean. All in all, a great experience.

It goes without saying that the entire uni is dead quiet on semester breaks, so you could find what was otherwise a reliable job suddenly able to give you many hours depending on what time of the year it is. That is just an unavoidable part of how cafes on campus work.
Pros
$12 meal expense if you work more than 5 hours per shift
Cons
Quiet seasons

Ensuring that all programs operated as required and all key performance indicaters were met
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Sydney Inner Suburbs NSW9 March 2017
A typical day was ensuring all programs operated on time and that all employees and resources were available for each and every day. I learned that it is difficult to please everybody and to maintain professionalism at all times. The workplace was very personal and it was difficult to seperate the two bot in the workplace level and management level. The most enjoyable part of this work was ssisting disadvantaged overcome barriers which lea to success
Pros
Good income and salary sacrafice options
Cons
personal and professional were hard to seperate on all levels.

Fun
Researcher (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW23 September 2016
It's fun, you don't have to wear business attire, you meet lots of interesting people, you have flexible hours and pretty much do your hours. But there is tons of work and you have to work extra hours to be on time with your work schedule.
