    I worked at Truckee Meadows Community College full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people are employed at Truckee Meadows Community College. The students are fun.

    Cons

    As a custodial worker, the training is no good. You need to train on how to clean. Just because you come from a cleaning background doesn't mean you know how things work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a training program!

    Pros

    You get paid. That is about it. What else can I say?

    Cons

    Lousy and getting worse! Minimal support staff and molly coddling students to where faculty must explain why someone who rarely attended and failed their exams should fail the course!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the place down if you are too gutless to lead! Taxpayers have spent plenty on education, but their children have to grow up some time!

    Senior administration has no idea what is going on at the department level.

    I worked at Truckee Meadows Community College

    Pros

    It was terrific, if you wanted to take classes as the student discount was terrific. Some of the people are very dedicated to serving students and take their jobs very seriously, to educate.

    Cons

    Constant complaints about senior administration in front of students. Rampant favoritism shown, both in students and staff. Severe criticism of other staff, both within and outside department, and students. Gossip was taken as gospel rather than actually trying to find the truth. Promoting individual agendas instead of actually teaching educational standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what is going on inside the departments. Do not trust anything your department heads are telling you, because they are spreading malicious gossip as soon as you turn your back or shut your office doors.

    Pros

    Benefits and retirement are good but not great. Weekends and all holidays off. Easy job and not much to do.

    Cons

    If you like working for a school where you sit around all day with not much to do, then this is the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many employees with not enough work to do. The reason there is a budget crisis is because there is to much dead weight up on the hill...
