    Great place to teach.

    Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee)
    Torrance, CA

    ProsGreat deal of independence in deciding how to teach courses. The pay rate is exceptional. There was a degree of mentoring for new part-time faculty.

    ConsLack of cohesiveness among the faculty. There was also a lack of morale among the part-time faculty.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSolicit more input from the part-time faculty. Provide more resources for teaching for the part-time faculty. Provide health benefits, which may be helpful.

    Great place to prepare you as a transfer student

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is a great place to study disciplines regarding science or engineering. From my experience, most of the math, physics, and computer science teachers are really good. I highly recommend working as a tutor.

    ConsThe bad thing about working here as a student is the pay. From what I know, all of the jobs that you get as a student will be more minimum wage.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Great experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI enjoyed immensely having this as my first official job. The employees were super friendly and the atmosphere was laid back and fun, even during rush times.

    ConsI wish they would give more opportunities to part-timers, and would keep workers longer than the beginning of the semester.

    Good place to work, nice people

    Writing Tutor (Former Employee)
    Torrance, CA

    ProsParking permit for employees, nice people to work with. My supervisor was always asking me if there's anything I wanted to talk about. Overall a pleasant experience.

    ConsThe nature of my job sometimes required a huge gap between working hours. For example, sometimes I had an early morning class to tutor and my next one was around 3pm. But that was part of the job.

    Great Place to Work Part Time

    Tutor (Current Employee)

    ProsStress free, friendly students and co-workers, good work schedule, wonderful boss, free staff parking permit

    ConsLow Pay and no benefits for casual workers--I've worked at the college for over five years and have not received a raise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees who work part time and have bachelor degrees should receive more pay and benefits.

    Pretty Much Ok

    Learning Resource Assistant (Former Employee)
    Torrance, CA

    ProsWorking with students and helping them out was very rewarding, you develop your own special unique relationship with each one semester after semester until they graduate. It is a nice feel knowing that you played a part in contributing to their success there. I would recommend this to a person who can ignore all the upper management bull and work for the enjoyment of helping someone succeed and love to work in an educational setting.

    ConsIt is hard working with people who have shared decades there and are set in their ways. I mean there is a great number of employees there that are wonderful to work around nice and truly want to help students succeed. As for the hire ups, well I can't say too much about them...just in my opinion I feel they have more responsibility, yes, for the amount of money they are getting paid but I feel they are disconnected or can not relate to the students because they rather hide behind their desk.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
