    Pros

    I have been working at SBCC as an adjunct for over ten years. I find that most the students and the staff are wonderful to work with. I enjoy the happy, educational atmosphere. It really feels like this school is interested in giving the best education possible to its students.

    Cons

    At least in our department, one does not know what his/her schedule will be until it is posted at sbcc.ed/classes. It's hard to organize additional work this way. It's not impossible, but one can not ignore it either.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication lines open.

  2. Considering being an on-campus part time job the pay may not be more than expected but Santa Barbara isnt cheap!

    Pros

    If you are a student and working at the college, you get to stay on campus and are able to go to the library after work, to finish homework or study.

    Cons

    For me there were none. IF students didn't show up to your tutorials, it gave you time to work on your classes while still getting paid.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring students who are willing to work and goto school, they get to exercise their brains still while at work. The professor I tutored for made sure I attended every lecture he gave so I was up-to-date with where the class was at.

  7. Great for student workers

    Pros

    It's great to have an on campus job. No commuting, they can schedule around your classes and the pay is decent enough. Of course this varies depending on your role, but I even was able to study while I did my job.

    Cons

    You don't always experience new things and most jobs are monotonous. Again this can vary.

    Advice to Management

    I would have liked more opportunities to use what I've learned so far to benefit both me and the campus.

  8. Pleasant.

    Pros

    Excellent communication between staff members and students who work for them. Everyone is friendly and appreciative of those who work there.It is inspiring to work for the #1 college in the nation. The instructors are interesting and enthusiastic about the work they do and their enthusiasm is energizing. When you work around professionals that love what they do it is a very positive environment.

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything that would be considered a drawback to working for the Allied Health Dept. associated with Santa Barbara City College. The campus is located in such a beautiful place with mostly ideal weather that even walking around campus you can't help but feel the positive atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work both inspiring students and working with your wonderful example of professionalism as well as encouragement for all who are fortunate enough to have worked with you.

    Pros

    The best thing is that i get to work on campus, so i can walk to class when i get off work. Beautiful location, right across the street from the beach in Santa Barbara and a great view of the beach. I think most of the staff enjoy their vacation and time-off, i'm part time so don't get vacation other than during the intermission

    Cons

    It seems that in every job there are people who just don't like you. So i try to be friendly and kind to those who it seems are unfriendly and carry on with my job.

    Advice to Management

    What would Jesus do? What we need in the world today is for everyone to hold themselves to a higher standard. To see the problems around us and do our best to Love our neighbor as ourselves. To make a difference and not just look the other way and say that's not my job or that doesn't concern me. I pray that we can all hold ourselves to a higher standard and not just what is good enough.

  11. Great school and great people to work with

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly and drama free. With great benefit. Sunshine and beach just outside of your office.

    Cons

    There are no cons, salary can't competition with private company. Too nice temperature and environment that puts you into sleep.
