  1. Lab Instructor

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Lorain County Community College part-time

    Pros

    The curriculum for the lab classes is straight forward. Instructors have the freedom to organize and present the information in a way that they feel works best to engage student learning.

    Cons

    Instructors sign up of classes and the classes are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. This may be considered a con; however, if one were to stay current on when sign up dates begin, this may be beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    I never had a problem with management. They were wonderful people to work. If I ever had a question they were easy to contact and always answered my questions promptly.

  2. I teach Math at LCCC. High levels of study. Liberal relations with the students. Possibilities to "catch" others.

    I have been working at Lorain County Community College part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very good atmosphere between the teachers. Possibilities of working with an individual students if they are initially behind. Anything else is about the same as at any other college.

    Cons

    One should be really a good teacher to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Management leadership is really strong. If one wants to continue a research in addition to teaching it is possible. As I wrote anything else is more or less standard.

    Pros

    The President is a dynamic, transformative leader that has made the school a model for community colleges across the country - A university partnership program that allows students to earn select BA/BA and Master's degrees from universities around Ohio - Continuously adds programs in response to job needs in the area - Strong Nursing and Allied Health programs - The Science and Math department has several Ivy League and top tier educated faculty and adjuncts - MIT Fab Lab - Friendly, professional culture.

    Cons

    Like many colleges, they grossly underpay adjuncts, and of course, provide no health benefits for adjuncts as well. Culture feels like it is shifting in a negative way. Very few FTTT positions. Due to the. University partnership program, Ph.Ds are usually required, although people with Master's or BA/BS degrees may find they qualify for teaching a lab or one of the certificate programs. Recent increases in enrollment mean very few parking spaces on some days so plan on getting there early.

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaged with the professional development of all your faculty- not just full-time.

  10. Great experience as a student worker!

    Pros

    The staff you work with is great! As a student worker, hours are very flexible around a class schedule. I kept track of my own hours, and really enjoyed that. I highly recommend seeking employment for students looking to make some cash while in school.

    Cons

    The hours of work were inconsistent, but I would imagine this was only for my position. My duties were data entry for switching over to MyCampus. Some weeks I had thirty hours of work and other weeks I had two hours. It obviously would have been nice to make more than minimum wage, but the position didn't really demand more than that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Lorain County Community College has got it figured out!

  11. Good job to have while a student

    Pros

    Flexible hours, nice people, clean environment. You get a sense of community and helpfulness most of the time. Pay raise after earning a degree.

    Cons

    Not enough hours. Dealing with the general public (students) can at times be difficult.
