    Former Employee - Student Office Assistant in Bremerton, WA
    Former Employee - Student Office Assistant in Bremerton, WA

    I worked at Olympic College part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Willing to work to accommodate class schedule when possible. Learned a lot about hiring procedures as well as information about job search resources.

    Cons

    There were some very slow days where there wasn't always a lot of work to do, so it could get boring at times. Must pace yourself so you don't finish daily work too fast.

    Former Employee - Classified Employee in Bremerton, WA
    Former Employee - Classified Employee in Bremerton, WA

    I worked at Olympic College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, hardworking staff. Great education. Great capital improvement program.

    Cons

    Management does not include lower level staff in the discussions involving policy and organizational change.

    Classified and exempt staff have difficulty in being fairly classified and paid. www.deskauditguide.com was written in response to the swashbuckling experience of three classified employees here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be respectful to classified and lower level exempt staff by acknowledging their skills and ability to contribute. Try being collaborative.

    Hours will work around your school schedule. No dress code. A good chance to practice and review classes I've already taken.

    Many of the tutors are HS running start students, so the level of professionalism is quite low.

    Former Intern - IT Tech in Bremerton, WA
    Former Intern - IT Tech in Bremerton, WA

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Training 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get a structured training plan implemented and provide more hands-on training opportunities for the student employees for a more rewarding experience.

    Current Employee - IT Help Desk Technician in Bremerton, WA

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

    Pros

    Set 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.

    Cons

    Work can be slow at times.
