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

Bookstore Buyer (Former Employee)
Lynnwood, WA

I worked at Edmonds Community College full-time for more than 10 years

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

I've worked multiple tutoring positions around campus

Tutor (Former Employee)

I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time for more than a year

ProsIt's easy to find jobs especially if you know someone. Also, if you're good at your job it makes it easier to get hired elsewhere.

They will work around your school schedule so you can fill in those pesky 1-2hr breaks with something productive.

ConsA max number of hours is set to 19. Also, the pay can be low. Luckily i was paid from 10-12.5/hr

Great Higher Education Facility

Office Assistant I (Former Employee)
Lynnwood, WA

I worked at Edmonds Community College full-time for less than a year

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).

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

Office Assistant (Current Employee)
Lynnwood, WA

I have been working at Edmonds Community College

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.)

The staff at the Career Action Center at Edmonds CC are the BEST to work with! Truly wonderful people.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Edmonds Community College

ProsI worked here under Work Study program. It was one of the best positions I have ever held in my professional career. It was so rewarding to help students get started in the worker retraining program and to see their progress quarter after quarter.

ConsNot always enough to do. But on the other hand, being a student and working under the work study program, it allowed me time to work on my homework.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the awesome work and support of student employees.

Good experience

Student Assistant (Former Employee)
Lynnwood, WA

I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time for more than a year

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.
