Former Employee - Student Assistant in Lynnwood, WA (US)

I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Get a chance to meet people, and help them with their studies.
Get the opportunity to encourage students and monitor their progress in their classes.
Get a chance to review materials from some classes, so that those materials are fresh at all times.

Cons

Sometimes there are limited students, so it is more time to commute for tutoring, than the actual pay.
There are some students that don't want to try harder, which is demoralizing; especially because you do your best, and they just don't have any progress.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to assign more students to the tutors. Make the hassle of going to the campus worthwhile.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College

    Pros

    Edmonds Community Colleges is a great place to work when you are earning your degree there. The work environment is friendly, social, and positive.

    Cons

    The pay is on the lower side, and the parking is horrible at times. The office technology could use an upgrade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more onsite software developers, specifically web-services developers. Develop your own web services instead of contracting out to companies who provide crappy products (products the students hardly use.)

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible and easy to schedule around your quarter classes, no pressure to work more hours than you can handle. Management is nice and easy to approach, no one will snap at you for getting sick last minute or lowering hours due to stress. Really great place.

    Cons

    Not so much Edmond's itself but coworkers aren't always the hardest working. I had to pick up the slack for other tutors a lot because they'd ignore the request board hoping someone else will take it up. Can't really report it and it makes the workload uneven at times. Not really a big con though, since I enjoyed talking with people and helping them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe be a bit more stern on lazy worker, because there are a few who will take advantage of the kindness of upper management.
