    Current Employee - Administrative Support in Auburn, WA

    I have been working at Green River Community College

    Pros

    Good working conditions and supervisors are very open to suggestions and ideas.

    Cons

    The parking situation on campus is horrible, at best! Since this is in a wooded area and night fall occurs early during Fall and Winter quarters, there needs to be more lighting around the campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more parking available to the staff by the LSC ares so staff can actually park and get to the building safely (especially after dark)!
