    Pros

    Once people become employees at GRC, they stay until they retire. This is a good thing, IMO.

    Cons

    Because there isn't a lot of staff turnover, some things are slow to change.

  9. "Green River College PC Repair Intern"

    Former Employee - PC Technician in Auburn, WA
    Former Employee - PC Technician in Auburn, WA

    Pros

    Working at Green River Community College PC Repair Shop is a great opportunity to compliment you IT studies and gain experience troubleshooting PC and Laptop problems. You also get customer service experience in taking and returning phone calls from potential customers inquiring about services available and interacting with current customers and their concerns. It is rewarding to know you are helping them become more proactive in understanding the importance of keeping their machines security up to date.

    Cons

    There was not too much to not like working at the PC Repair shop, except for the close quarters (square footage) work area the college allotted for doing repairs with the many interns as the program is popular.

    Advice to Management

    The word is out about the good service the shop provides at such a low cost. In my experience, more and more work was coming in all the time. Find a larger space to allow the Technicians to work efficiently without bumping into one another.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Green River Community College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for those who work for the state and lots of sick leave and vacation days to balance slightly lower than market rate pay.

    Cons

    Some of the areas work in silos without much interaction or concern for what's going on elsewhere, and you have to be proactive to be the change to make it a collaborative environment. That said, it can easily be done.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and do what you know to be right. In the face of opposing views, listen and work toward your goals knowing there will always be naysayers to progress.
