    I worked at Arizona Western College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, retirement and health insurance benefits. There are some really nice people that work here. Small town attitude. You will meet and see people out and about. Never say anything bad about anyone...

    Cons

    Sitting 10 hours a day, One set of rules for friends and family. One set of rules for those who don't fit that criteria.

    Advice to Management

    Delegating Effectively, Communication, clear communication,Planning, making decisions, and problem solving. Most of the women in higher positions are power hungry most likely due to the make dominant house hold they are living in. Ladies... Chill!

    I worked at Arizona Western College full-time

    Pros

    Great work with students in La Paz county. Diverse job in many different academic areas

    Cons

    Too much emphasis placed on recruitment with yield of 1% at best. Too much time needed over the 40 hour work week to get results.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a part time recruitment specialist for the area so the student services coordinator can focus on students already at the school

    I worked at Arizona Western College part-time

    Pros

    The job was great, supervisor was very sweet and I got to work with students. Limited hours, so attending class was easy.

    Cons

    AWC has some bizarre policies and loves to keep part-time employees out of the loop. Also, if you look "alternative", expect to be treated differently.

    Advice to Management

    Start training at an earlier time and don't expect all part time employees/full time students to be able to attend every event. Make a calendar and send it out regularly.

    I worked at Arizona Western College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    easy schedule, 1 free community college class each semester including summer

    Cons

    All decisions are made in Yuma, so if you work at a satellite campus, they will care very little about you, your college or resources. All Resources are spent on the main campus and the satellite campuses get the left overs. Satellite campuses have very little supervision as well. I worked there 2 years and never saw my supervisor, but I know his voice.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the satellite campuses. Especially since La Paz County gives you a lot of tax payer money for the college, yet gets little in return.
