    I worked at Nassau Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -lots of free study/down time

    -Great opportunity to learn about professors and their life experiences

    -free food brought by the professors or from working in school conferences

    Cons

    -dealing with "interesting" students/callers; NCC attracts weird people who may call more than once on a settled request

    -internal conflicts reaching uncomfortable levels of tension; budget planning can be divisive at times

    -cold, uninsulated floors; they freeze your feet in the winter

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care for the students and keep letting the professors talk in the waiting area. The experiences of the professors encourage the students.

    I worked at Nassau Community College part-time

    Pros

    Had fun, good people in my department and extra time enough ot do homework while I work. Very convienent to be able to have a job on campus.

    Cons

    Need to sit all the professors down and tell them to treat students better. Some of them actred very angry all the time and treated us like inferiors.

    Advice to Management

    Have some standards about how employees treat each other and keep up the goo work with the job itself It's a great way to get some extra money while in school

    I worked at Nassau Community College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong union that gets their members what they can; After 10 years, there was no more contributions to health insurance (I don't know if they still have that, but no one else does !!!). The union got small bonuses for the people for college credits, reimburse a portion of out of pocket prescription costs; gave a holiday party.

    Cons

    The epitome of waste and corruption is found here. Most of the typists I met had literally nothing to do. Most people get their own phone, make their own copies, answer their own e-mail. I begged the professors for work to do; I was so bored; forced to listen to the professors' latest vacation, travel, purchases. The professors are grossly overpaid for maybe 12-17 hour schedule; the adjuncts never get paid due to 6 six little old ladies sitting in a room doing payroll with a calculator and hand written time sheets. The professors are obnoxious and will kill each other over "the list" of who has the most seniority. I witnessed some very bad, catty behavior. Also, the professors stole reams of paper!

    Advice to Management

    All the schools in Nassau County are over audited, but I don't think this school is audited at all. Also, so many kids need guidance and I saw a real lack of guidance where professors really didn't make time for the kids. Also, I witnessed teachers paying other teachers to teach their classes so they would not have that cancellation on their record.

    I have been working at Nassau Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love it here. Yes, there are politics and disagreements but so much better than the trend at many local private universities where factions exist between English and Composition departments (and Comp is treated like the ugly step-sister).

    Cons

    Tough to get in full time & lots of flux in the administration the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    If NCC could get their administration in tight order once and for all, it would be an even better place to work for the stability.

    I have been working at Nassau Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy work. No need for overtime

    Cons

    No full time lines. The college is getting cheap with hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Fire half of the staff. Most of them are on drugs or don't care about the job at all.

    Pros

    As a student Aide, the hours you get are considerate of your school work. Working in the same environment you learn has advantages such as easy access to your professors and constant reminders of on coming projects.

    Cons

    Sometimes as a student you would like to get away from the learning environment for a break but as a Student Aide that is barely an option during your working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Give Student Aide more responsibilities so that their work hours would not be just an extended class time to work on homework.
