    I worked at South Seattle Community College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some people very friendly, understanding and able to help you with your job if you do not understand

    Cons

    Supervisor and some Deans are very racially motivate to try and get rid of you by picking on certain race groups

    Advice to Management

    Need to go to diversity training especially the HR and people of power.

    I have been working at South Seattle Community College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some co-workers and dean's was really high on letting the employees think about new ways to do things and never held you back or micro manage you

    Cons

    The department that I was in did not treat people with respect, courtesy, would sometime use racial comments and nothing would be done about it. Would pick on the person of color just to see how far they could push her to make her quit. They talk about diversity but never practice the definition of what it means.

    Advice to Management

    Get training for diversity for supervisors, dean's and presidents of the college. Also, get a HR person who is not there to protect the college. List to what the employees are telling you about the problems that they are having and the departments and not just believe management

    I have been working at South Seattle Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The community on the campus is fantastic and the people are great to work with. Instructors have course development power and opportunities to create new courses as well.

    Cons

    Like other colleges around the US, budget cuts has hit this campus hard and they are now replacing full time work with part time workers, faculty to staff.

    Advice to Management

    Offer the slightest bit of job security to keep employees interested.
