    I have been working at Los Rios Community College District (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rewarding work, Definite work hours, Friendly employees and supervisor's/managers, The work is challenging at times but it is all worth the end result of helping others better themselves and help them go after their dreams.

    Cons

    Wish I could get on full time with all my experience in education.

    Advice to Management

    Notice the special qualities in your workers and take a chance in creating new job titles that can allow the person(s) to shine and bring in a new era of paying it forward to promote academic excellence in the California Community College system. It would be nice to see more full time positions available that even those with Associates Degrees can attain. Just a thought..

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

    Pros

    Holidays off. Usually have weekends off. Short shifts, however now due to very low staffing, forced to work overtime. Low call volume and a paycheck.

    Cons

    It's basically a security force. Promotions only come to those who are in the "inner circle" generally from backstabbing other Officers.

     They only provide the exact minimum amount of training required. No more, no less. All equipment is at least 10 to 15 years old. No respective given from the District or command staff. Most Officers only see the Chief once a year. I've never seen morale so low at any job place. Command staff ignores their own faults but goes after Officers for any and everything. You will be advised not to do proactive police work because it brings attention to real crimes on campus.

    It's an educational law enforcement department, that is also the only agency that doesn't pay you for having a degree...

    Pros

    Most colleagues really care about students and find satisfaction in seeing them be successful.

    Cons

    Commitee work is tedious and often seems pointless. We could do more with the funding we receive and curb wasteful spending.

    Advice to Management

    Come visit us in the classroom!

    Pros

    Great benefits & pay...at least when I was there. Like anywhere else, depends on management & co-workers.

    I worked at Los Rios Community College District part-time

    Pros

    I found a great department at American River College to work at. The pay was good for the type of position and there was no drama. Flexible hours and great people.

    Cons

    Part time workers are limited to 180 working days a year. Bad departments are terrible soap operas full of drama queens.
