    I worked at Bakersfield College full-time

    Pros

    The only popular school providing CNA, Paramedics,VN and RN program and easy to get into

    Cons

    The whole department runs on an autocratic rule of Dean whose philosophy of teaching is stuck with 100 years old faculties. New ideas are not welcome, academic freedom is next to nothing and people are loaded with endless units to teach. Faculty turnover is high even though benefits are good. Looks very inviting atmosphere in the beginning but its a hell hole of dirty politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be empathetic to faculties and polite to students

    Tutoring Position

    I have been working at Bakersfield College

    Pros

    Got to work with students who were actually interested in making their lives go somewhere. Introduced to a diversity of backgrounds and majors.

    Cons

    Sometimes students would not show up. People are always hit-or-miss with how much they want to learn in a given session. Language barriers got in the way.

  7.  

    Easy work but low pay.

    Former Employee - Math Tutor in Bakersfield, CA

    I worked at Bakersfield College

    Pros

    Take a job as a tutor and you can functionally get paid to do your own homework. The job even when you are helping out is easy and can be fun if you like math or the subject you are teaching.

    Cons

    Kids were not keeping appointments, the pay is minimum wage and capped at 19 hours a week. What is worse is that you must be taking at least 6 units to work. Only do this as a college job to earn extra money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other tutors are not actually on site working, and the system is abused as some employees are employed by different branches at the same time, and collect money from multiple sources from the same hour of work.
