    I have been working at Los Angeles Community College District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits and salaries compared to other entry-level positions. Holidays off and awesome accumulated vacation options. Pretty easy to work alone and get the job done. Lots of employee incentives including EAP

    Cons

    Can get very political; it's about who you know when trying to advance. Can be a trap job in a sense due to COLA and how stagnant it is; Union dues a bit much for really not doing much

    Advice to Management

    Treating others like how you would like to be treated goes a long way

    I worked at Los Angeles Community College District part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    FWS program helps pay or school through financial aid. The hours are flexible and they work with your class schedule.
    Finding campus employment is simple and the program staff is very supportive and helpful. Steady income and hours.
           The office offers supportive services to students on campus that have physical/emotional/learning impairments. Coworkers and office staff are wonderful, helpful, and supportive to each other and to students.

    Cons

    Any problems or issues with financial aid status or enrollment may delay or disqualify eligibility to FWS program.
       Once you get hired, payroll is distributed every 2 weeks and initial payment is sometimes delayed up to 3 weeks.
       Direct deposit of paychecks is highly encouraged to ensure prompt payment.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work! Student employment and supportive aid are useful and supportive.

    I have been working at Los Angeles Community College District full-time

    Pros

    The collegiate education environment has its perks. Working for a good cause, casual dress, all in a positive environment. The Community College District knows their mission and sticks to it, and that filters all the way from the top to the bottom.

    Cons

    I've been around quite some time, and every year it seems as though there are more and more rules, and more and more red tape. It's not just the college, but true in any environment. It's just that the colleges seem to understand more and more the need for the dollar and have embraced a corporate mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we're in the "people" business. Everyone knows about the business of education, but keep it subtle; don't scream it.
