    Great programs and friendly college environment!

    Tutor (Former Employee)
    Lynnwood, WA

    ProsDiverse opportunities available. People are very friendly and supportive. Great place to be at. Learn and improve skills for a better future. Enjoy my time working and studying here. Definitely recommend Edmonds Community College as an employer / school.

    ConsParking can be hard. Usually have to come early to get a good spot. Other than that, this is a great college for both learning and working.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Higher Education Facility

    Office Assistant I (Former Employee)
    Lynnwood, WA

    ProsOpportunities and experience gained to take to other employer.

    ConsLimited full-time employment opportunities, too many part-time employees working 15-17 hours or less per week. Some departments have poor supervision of work study students and do not communicate well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCombine part-time positions to full-time and/or suggest the union pool benefit monies so part-time workers (15 hours/week or more) have benefits (even though some of the cost will come out of the part-time employee's wages (similar to the k-12 school districts).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    New administration has cracked the once strong foundation of the campus community.

    Bookstore Buyer (Former Employee)
    Lynnwood, WA

    ProsAt this time I see no pros. Used to be the people, the campus community.

    ConsThe "one big family" feeling is gone. Working with fewer and fewer resources but expected to continue to grow and improve. Employees are burning out fast. Current administration is not transparent in decision making or implementation of changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a wealth of experience and knowledge in your long time staff as well as ideas from existing and new staff. Listen to them and make sure you are really hearing them. Don't change just for changes sake. The foundation of trust and respect need to be rebuilt for the campus to grow and succeed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good experience

    Student Assistant (Former Employee)
    Lynnwood, WA

    ProsGet 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.

    ConsSometimes 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 Senior ManagementTry to assign more students to the tutors. Make the hassle of going to the campus worthwhile.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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

    Office Assistant (Current Employee)
    Lynnwood, WA

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire 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.)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
