    I have been working at Edmonds Community College

    Pros

    Very easy, relaxed, good benefits, (almost) free class, decent pay

    Cons

    No incentives so nobody wants to improve, everyone is complacent--you will become like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are not in control of any of my complaints, so I don't really have any advice to give

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful teachers, administrators, & staff who were all really supportive and helpful. They have a lead teacher who will help you prepare for everything, from the syllabus and curriculum, to lesson plans and activities!

    Cons

    The shared common work room was a new concept for me. Although I fully understand why they need that (so many teachers throughout the day and no way to provide personal computers for everyone), it was annoying and time consuming to put all of your stuff away and take it out before/after every class (if they can find you room in a cupboard). Also, some computers may or may not be actually hooked up correctly to printers, etc. Other than that, I felt attendance was an issue (perhaps because it is a community college and not a university?) more so than other places I've taught. Next time, I would be stricter.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (less than a 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.

    A good start to my education and professional career

    Current Employee - Writing Assistant in Lynnwood, WA
    Current Employee - Writing Assistant in Lynnwood, WA

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very laid-back, easygoing work environment. My supervisor was very adapt at both running her department but not over-working or stepping on the staff.

    Cons

    Pay was low at the time, but it was part-time student work. I felt like there was no room for growth without first finishing my studies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real advice here, everything seemed to run like a well-oiled, if large, machine.

    Working for EdCC is great when you are earning your degree there!

    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.)
