    I have been working at Olympic College part-time

    Pros

    The teaching staff is qualified, friendly, and always ready to help.

    Cons

    HR is extremely incompetent. They don't bother to incorporate any of the documents filled out at orientation to the employee files; they don't communicate well with Payroll or Facilities, and consistently give new employees wrong information.

    I worked at Olympic College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers, so so benefits. Good location and family culture with staff members. Most of the staff were lovely and really cared about what they were doing. This made work go by quickly and gave you a sense of comradery.

    Cons

    No real work life balance, understaffed, and too much red tape to get anything done. A few bad apples spoil the bunch and made work a lot worse when they came around. The pay was very low being just over min wage. A lot of people, myself included worked tons of off the clock overtime because there simply is too much work and not enough people. You may not at first but be prepared for the pressure to set in over time to stay late. Work stress ended up devestating my health.

    Pros

    There is a really good work/life balance. If you have a good manager it could be better, but over time you will come to find why a chunk of OC's employees are very unhappy.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about their employees and keep around higher level administration that bully and overwork their lower level employees.

    I worked at Olympic College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None, kids do have a place to go to school.

    Cons

    No managerial support, unions just want to fight, employees trust nothing, President does not lead - worst environment! Avoid it at all costs. It says a lot when enrollment is down, and all VP positions are are "acting" or temporary and have been that way for years.
