    I have been working at Columbia Basin College

    Pros

    Hard working, talented, good people working at Columbia Basin College. A good culture and a growing organization. More opportunities available as four-year programs are added.

    Cons

    The legislature rarely approves any type of raises. Can go six or eight years without a raise. It's discouraging to see everyone else in the community getting cost of living raises.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The culture is pretty good except for the salaries.

    Pros

    Departments work very closely to provide for students. I felts that my supervisors actually cared for me as a person and employee.

    Cons

    Policies subject to change on a whim, future plans sort of fuzzy. Student employees and interns are sort of taken for granted by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    As a institution of higher learning making better use of student employees and seeing them as actual employees goes a long way to them feeling needed in the work place.

    Pros

    Can teach skills involving filing, spreadsheets, labeling, and communication; Can use the management as references for future jobs; great stepping stone for careers involving office work and essentially anything that relates with communicating with people.

    Cons

    Low pay; few hours; days can be slow; must be a student; no real growth within the department; occasional favoritism among some student employees; managers and supportive staff members often remind student employees about their position; frequent gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps provide the students with enough work to avoid slow days.
