    Former Intern - Student Worker in Prescott, AZ

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

    Pros

    Great community overall, willing to help. Any training for a student position is usually done within the scope or time of the job. However if you are applying as a professor or adjunct professor it depends on who runs the department and what type of person they are.

    Cons

    As an employer they are generally not acclimated to working with students/people with disabilities. HOWEVER if you are working in the Disability Resource Department / Learning Center that is the best place to work if you are a student, worker, or student worker with a disability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the bosses of a lot of departments that interact with students on a daily basis. Definitely think about familiarizing ALL OF YOUR STAFF with Disability awareness and sensitivity training. A fair amount of the staff, inc some of the cashiers need to be a bit nicer to the students.

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

    Pros

    Yavapai College has great benefits. These not only included health, dental, etc., but included professional and career growth opportunities through workshops and courses offered at the main campus in Prescott.

    Cons

    The downside of working at the campus was mainly the separation of the campuses. Employees often felt this separation in policies and decisions, with the smaller campuses feeling as if they did not get the perks of the main campus in Prescott or feeling as if they were the 'stepchildren' of the college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on employee relations.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, culture, location, leadership and facilities

    Cons

    Salary! Almost impossible to live in the region on the wages provided. Other non-tangible benefits help offset low wages.
