    Pros

    Pros

    They pay very well hourly.

    Cons

    They gave you very few hours, they know who they give the hours , all is depend on who you know inside the administration. Bad environment!

    Advice to Management

    You give the teaching hours to those who are less experience and knowledge , just because you are know them and you have relationship with them , very bad strategy.

    I worked at Los Rios Community College District (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free employee parking, matching retirement funds for temporary classified employees.

    Cons

    Rude students, not enough bathrooms on campus.

    Advice to Management

    After enticing me to a full time position, my department head eliminated my program (the media center) distance learning program with no notice. I was not called into the office for the news, rather a clerk informed me at the coffee maker. Sixteen years at my position and I've never met the department head.

    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.

    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..
