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

    Pros

    Get a chance to meet people, and help them with their studies.
    Get the opportunity to encourage students and monitor their progress in their classes.
    Get a chance to review materials from some classes, so that those materials are fresh at all times.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are limited students, so it is more time to commute for tutoring, than the actual pay.
    There are some students that don't want to try harder, which is demoralizing; especially because you do your best, and they just don't have any progress.

    Advice to Management

    Try to assign more students to the tutors. Make the hassle of going to the campus worthwhile.

    Pros

    I worked here under Work Study program. It was one of the best positions I have ever held in my professional career. It was so rewarding to help students get started in the worker retraining program and to see their progress quarter after quarter.

    Cons

    Not always enough to do. But on the other hand, being a student and working under the work study program, it allowed me time to work on my homework.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work and support of student employees.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly, this space right here would NOT fit all the things I found great about Edmonds Community College. Having both studied and worked at the college, I can say that Edmonds Community College has the following strong suits and values:
    - Great Work Environment and People
    - Organized Company Structure and Systems
    - Work/Life Balance, Travel Opportunities
    - Clear Vision, Mission and CORE Values
    - Clear teaching directions & committees
    - Great health care benefits and training
    - Career Advancement / Growth Opportunities
    - Great Payscale for almost every level at the college
    - Great 10-year / long-term plans and strategies
    - ...and so many more!!!

    Cons

    Edmonds Community College has expansive ways to grow according to its potentials...
    It has changed from being constructive to being more collaborative as an organization. Therefore, these changes have to be supported at every level and in every department at the college... Many efforts and investments have been done, however, there are still some many inefficient pipelines that can be reduced.

    Advice to Management

    I am overall satisfied with my career and study journey spent at Edmonds Community College.
    I encourage my fellow friends looking at this review to join Edmonds Community College. I definitely would recommend it with an open set of arms and heart! :-)

    Pros

    Amazing management, people, and everyone is passionate about their job.

    Cons

    Being a part time employee it's hard to know when/what classes you are teaching until the very last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the younger generation and their ideas of making a department better.

    good benefits, and they are nice people.

    some of them are very picky, they don't give challenges to worker, if you know how to do it don't do it unless you have experience.

    Working in a learning environment was fantastic. I loved seeing the excitement in the students as well as coworkers as the students achieved their educational goals to improve their lives.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time

    Pros

    Working on campus at EdCC is great for students because of the 'School Comes First' attitude. The Green Team position provides excellent experience for coordinating events, engaging with the general public, improving customer service skills, and of course, learning about sustainability. The atmosphere of the office was nice.

    Cons

    If you aren't taking the bus onto campus, parking can be a bit difficult to find at times. While you can usually match your work schedule to classes, sometimes making an extra trip for a meeting or special event is required.

    Advice to Management

    Sustainability is important. Please continue to support the Green Team and develop new ways to include sustainability in as many facets of EdCC's culture as possible.
