    I have been working at Honolulu Community College

    Pros

    I love to work and help fellow students out
    Gets your foot in the door for other jobs within the system
    Really flexible hours.

    Cons

    Politics. I imagine that every college in the country has a bureaucracy... Well, the UH system loves to flaunt that, and at times, it makes them look pretty bad.
    multi-tasking into some other persons job title is frowned upon...even when you know what you're doing and you're able to fix or identify the problem on the spot.
    Efficiency is held back....by the politics. Piggy-backing on the above problems, some of the practices and procedures date back to the 60's, and it's rather annoying when you're trying to present a more efficient way of doing something. After all, to the faculty's eyes, I'm just a student...even though I served in the military for 6 years, and managed a workcenter that handled the launch and recovery of a dozen F/A-18 Hornets that are worth 288 million dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all students graduated high school and went straight to this campus. Some people went ahead and seen the world and grabbed a little maturity and leadership skills before stepping into the classroom. Acknowledge that please.
