    I have been working at Macomb Community College part-time

    Pros

    lots of decent people, lots to learn.

    Cons

    change is slow, not a lot of incentive for excellence, or any way to benefit from a job well done even if it is recognized.

    Advice to Management

    invest more effectively in your middle management, a lot of them have input that is being wasted.

    I have been working at Macomb Community College part-time

    Pros

    Diverse student mix. Some very good students who could go to State or U of M. After startup costs, not a lot of work to be done outside of class: most grading can be done in class. Great admin and office staff!

    Cons

    Positives spoiled by self-important full-time faculty of spotty qualification. Truly awful IT. Initiatives and changes rolled out with little notice or preparation. Absolutely NO recognition or positive recognition for adjunct faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Positive feedback now and then for adjuncts would go a long way. At least a fraction of the focus given to respecting and nurturing students should go to those personnel upon whom your business model depends.

    I have been working at Macomb Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, easy-going approach, good supervisors and managers, may be able to cooperate with students who want private tutoring sessions.

    Cons

    Low pay compare to the minimum requirements, most tutor must already have a associate or bachelor to be effective. End of semester drama.

    Advice to Management

    Have some believe in your workers, just because they work for the minimum wage doesn't mean they have no life goals or passion for their work.

    I have been working at Macomb Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MCC is a good place to work if you're a student or only want a part-time job (sometimes less than part time). Most jobs here at VERY easy and pretty fun. It's great meeting new people and interacting with students. Very diverse student population. Mostly clerical-type work. Lots of tutoring jobs. Depending on which department/area you work in, scheduling is pretty flexible and you really can't get fired or let go. No dress code. GREAT part-time union! There are some cool part time benefits once you've worked there for a long time. Good work/life balance for the most part (it rly depends where you work).

    Cons

    No worthwhile benefits. No healthcare. For most areas, your schedule will change depending on student traffic. Many depts cut hours during "slower times" for student traffic (to save money), and will then max out your hours during very busy times. Part-timers have a cap of 25 hours per week and you are NOT allowed to work more because that would entitle you to benefits! Do not take a part time job with Macomb if you're expecting it to turn into a full time opportunity or career. It's possible, yes, but VERY unlikely. Many part time workers have been there FOREVERR expecting that to happen, but now they're just career part timers. Lots of politics at this college. HUGE lack of communication everywhere. Low pay, usually starts at min wage. This place still uses paper time cards. Upper management are spoiled and act like it. Big disconnect between full-time and part time staff.

    Advice to Management

    Hire within. Promote workers who have served the college in part-time capacities. Stop hiring people with fancy degrees (they don't know what they're doing and they don't understand community college culture). Show students that employers WILL hire them with an associate's or bachelor's..... since that's WHY they're going to college in the first place. Support your part time staff, especially your adjunct professors. Without part-timers, the college would crumble.

    Pros

    The people are nice throughout the college. Administration is quite a drag and drain though.

    Cons

    Low pay for what IT workers would make anywhere else. Slackers ruin it for everyone else and causes a giant moral drain.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to utilize your employees to the best of their abilities and those that can't manage, don't keep giving them people to manage and just waste away.
