My brief stint at Olympic College

IT Tech (Former Employee)
Bremerton, WA

I worked at Olympic College as an intern for less than a year

ProsMost of the IT techs were regular student employees, so there was a lot of camaraderie and everyone got along.

ConsTraining was almost non-existent. Work was monotonous and interns didn't have a lot of opportunities to get hands-on training on the other aspects of the IT field.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a structured training plan implemented and provide more hands-on training opportunities for the student employees for a more rewarding experience.

Olympic College Review

Director of Admissions (Current Employee)
Bremerton, WA

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

ProsThe people are the best part. Have wonderful and competent coworkers. Can't recommend them highly enough. Very team oriented in my division.

OC IT Help Desk: Great place to work while going to school!

IT Help Desk Technician (Current Employee)
Bremerton, WA

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

ProsSet hours. Flexible. Rewarding work. Option to work up to 40 hours a week in between quarters.

Overall it's been a great place to work. Everyone starts out working phones, but the longer you are there, the more fun and interesting things you get to do. Helping fix people's computer issues is personally rewarding, and making people smile always brightens your day.

ConsWork can be slow at times.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Welcoming atmosphere that's willing to work around your school or other work schedule

Campus Security Guard (Current Employee)
Bremerton, WA

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

ProsScheduling takes your schooling or other work schedules in to account. All equipment is provided. Well being of employees is a top priority.

ConsPoor Security mindset, lack of supervision all around.

Classified staff are treated poorly. Faculty run the college and the Administrators cater to them.
