    I worked at Chemeketa Community College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Testing could be done on campus or at home, and on my free time since everything was computer based.
    Very good pay for a fairly simple job.

    Cons

    I didn't get nearly as many job hours in as they had described, since the procedures were fairly short and simple, and there were not very many of them.

    Pros

    They allowed Creative Freedom on the video projects. They are Great People to work with and the college is a good environment to work in!

    I worked at Chemeketa Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A cooperative environment where assisting students is the primary focus. It is a great job for anyone that wants to help others.

    Cons

    Low pay and limited advancement opportunity are the unfortunate side effect of a relatively easy and fun job. There are no benefits for part-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    I am disappointed at not being able to connect with full time employment. There was a lack of training and formal evaluation that could be valuable for promotions to worthy current employees.

    Pros

    Most people very personable and enjoy helping students gain an education that prepares them for university.

    There is lots of mediocrity that is perpetuated by poor standards. Lots of unorganized plans and materials that make it difficult to make forward progress.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees and not let petty differences flourish and cause animosity to grow.

    Pros

    Expected deadlines were realistic and the expected output from contractors was minimal. Clients were helpful in knowing what they wanted clearly.

    Pros

    As an employee of Chemeketa, the aspect I value the most is feeling like a part of a big family. Many employees have worked here for their entire career, and that says a lot about an organization.

    Cons

    Very slow at making changes/ progress. Very process focused, and lacking innovation in some aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your "on the ground" employees. In actually implanting the policies and procedures, they often have constructive feedback.
