    I worked at Oakland Community College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time with OCC AH as an accounting/econ tutor. The students are wonderful and the staff.

    Cons

    I would have stayed longer had the hours not been shared between three of us, 2 of which were retired C.P.A.'s that could work minimal hours without concern for livelihood.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people coming in to have a little more potential for hours. Understand that some students learn differently from others.
