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

Pros

The supervisors were caring and contributed to a positive work environment. There were also great opportunities for learning as the tutors encountered new situations with different students coming into the center.

Cons

The environment was sort of rushed, especially during finals week when the center was busy and tutors were encouraged to help students quickly and move on to help other students. Appointments for longer sessions such as in the writing center might have been helpful for some students.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More training for tutors on how to handle/relate to different kinds of students might be helpful, since there was a diverse spectrum of visitors to the center.

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

    Pros

    Tutoring center has an excellent work culture, paid training, and is a good place to work on homework while off duty. Supervisors love input from students and tutors, and will also help if you can't help a student.

    Cons

    Difficult to get in without work study, especially if the economy is bad. Job security may be more challenging if you are not part of the faculty members' union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure that students are able to access more advanced courses and employment on satellite campus, there are enough qualified instructors to teach courses at advanced levels, and do not restrict financial aid for people who did not successfully transfer to a 4-year school. Both students and faculty would benefit.

    I have been working at Chemeketa Community College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible working conditions and somewhat flexible hours. Very limited evening and weekend work which is not common for an IT job. A lot of great people to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits (retirement and otherwise) are being whittled away quickly. Pay is at the bottom end of the technical field. Positions are largely part of the classified union and the "decision band method" is used for classification. This very closely ties technical positions to non-technical positions for bargaining and pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Environment needs a bit more structure (which is happening). Pay needs to be better than the current "below average" for the technical skills and experience needed. This is hard to get in the public education sector, but without it the college will continue to experience talent drain and will have to look at outsourcing.
