    I have been working at College of Lake County part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generous vacation time. Good work life balance

    Cons

    It's a EDU. Slow to change. Not real inventive. Seems overly drawn to supporting the underprivileged.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a follower....be a leader in trends

    I have been working at College of Lake County part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling your life around work

    Current Employee - Lab Technician in Grayslake, IL

    I have been working at College of Lake County part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, great learning environment, is able to make mistakes and learn from them, hands on learning and what we might encounter in the field

    Cons

    Wish student workers were payed more than the minimum wage. It makes it hard to pay of school debt while living on that wage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your student workers depending on how difficult the work is, example desk work can be minimum like library assistant, while HVAC or automotive kind of work should be higher

    I worked at College of Lake County part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you love teaching, this is a great community college to teach for. Students are interested in the material.
    Support staff are great folks: librarians, secretaries, deans, IT, maintenance and grounds crews.
    Tenured professors are not your bosses, even though they would like to think they are. Assistant deans are.

    Cons

    Some tenured professors are very catty. They will throw you under the bus right after you've done all they've asked, even if it wasn't fair to other students. Watch your back and you'll do fine.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize a problem before you offer a tenure to it.

    My con is personal, I hate my hours.

    Be more flexible with the hours and opportunity to grow.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    It's fun helping students start this chapter in life, the pay and hours are good as far as retail goes, and plenty of paid vacation.

    Cons

    No benefits, they keep every clerk under 30 hours a week. Upper management is clueless and difficult to work with. No room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    People need to have room to grow and a space to have their ideas heard if you want the best work from them.
