Grossmont is the best way to start for International students

Assistant Coach (Water Polo) (Current Employee)
El Cajon, CA

I have been working at Grossmont College part-time for less than a year

ProsThere are a lot of ways to get ahead, such as, tutoring department and also the English department is always willing to help you with whatever you need.

ConsSome of the classes needed have only a few spaces so we need to apply as fast as we can.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be great if you can get in touch with all the International students so they can discuss with you all their needs and maybe come up with a plan. Things change at all time, so it will be good if you can meet with them in the middle of the semester to make sure everything is going smoothly for them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Horrible Interviewing Process

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Grossmont College full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe public employees' retirement program

ConsSeriously screwed up hiring process, lots of cliques, antiquated processes with no desire to fix what's broken

Advice to Senior ManagementAn interview panel of 7 people is intimidating. Giving a nervous candidate a difficult work test at the interview is just wrong and doesn't give a real picture of what can be done. Making room/date changes 24 hours or less before the interview and assuming the candidate has gotten the email notification is unrealistic. Not communicating with candidates who have not made the cut is unacceptable and especially when it is a candidate already working there.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsI was studying and work at Grossmont College, and I enjoyed by this job because I like to work in different places also the work time is flexible.

ConsOne of the cons is the rules which are compliance you with routine work. If you want to develop something you should follow the routine, and they account how much cost and the process take a long time.
