    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

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

    Former Employee - Office Assistant I in Lynnwood, WA
    Former Employee - Office Assistant I in Lynnwood, WA

    I worked at Edmonds Community College full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunities and experience gained to take to other employer.

    Cons

    Limited 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 ManagementAdvice

    Combine 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).

    Former Employee - Bookstore Buyer in Lynnwood, WA
    Former Employee - Bookstore Buyer in Lynnwood, WA

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The "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 ManagementAdvice

    You 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.

    Former Employee - Student Assistant in Lynnwood, WA
    Former Employee - Student Assistant in Lynnwood, WA

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Get 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.

    Cons

    Sometimes 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 ManagementAdvice

    Try to assign more students to the tutors. Make the hassle of going to the campus worthwhile.

    Current Employee - Office Assistant in Lynnwood, WA

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire 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.)
