I worked at Edison State College full-time (More than 3 years)
Very good benefits, ample time off -college closed 2 weeks for Christmas and another week for spring break-You almost have earned paid time off. Work day is 8:30am-4:30 M-F Office are nice Staff is friendly
Not much opportunity for advancement Small or no raises Pay is low unless you an Administrator. No company loyalty
Advice to Management
Raises are not only for administration. Office assistants should make more. Give a Holiday bonus. To be such a large organization, you should care more about your employees.

I applied online. I interviewed at Edison State College (Fort Myers, FL) in November 2013.
The online application was the biggest hurdle because the posting and closing date were less than 10 days and the online application required all college transcripts to be attached. If you did not already have copies of your college transcripts, you probably would not have been able to get the application in by the deadline. I had my transcripts, letters of recommendation and completed the application and was notified by the HR dept. that my application was forwarded to the search committee about 1 week after the job closing date. I was contacted by the search committee and an interview was scheduled within a week. The interview was a 5 person panel interview and I was told there were 6 applicants and we were all getting interviewed on the same day (school is closing for holiday break shortly so the timeline has become accelerated). This college has 6 locations with one centralized HR dept.
- 5 people who all have the same question sheet and go around the room reading questions from the sheet. Was asked how I handled ambiguous situations and conflict among dorm residents. Interview lasted about an hour and 15 minutes. The group had a great chemistry between them and because of that the interview did not feel like the pressure cooker it could have been. 1 Answer
