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

    Pros

    Olympic College is more than willing to work around your schedule for school in order to help you succeed.

    Cons

    I really couldn't find any, all are warm and inviting.

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

    Pros

    Willing to work to accommodate class schedule when possible. Learned a lot about hiring procedures as well as information about job search resources.

    Cons

    There were some very slow days where there wasn't always a lot of work to do, so it could get boring at times. Must pace yourself so you don't finish daily work too fast.

    The managers and supervisors are all fantastic. They will work with your class schedule and genuinely want you to succeed.

    State agency so lots of red tape.

    I worked at Olympic College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Willingness to work with class schedule as needed, plenty of new people to meet, and the tasks were never over demanding. The managing staff was some of the best I'd ever worked for.

    Cons

    Capped maximum hours per month, but that was a state level mandate and not their fault.

    I worked at Olympic College part-time

    Pros

    Decent pay for level of work, lot's of downtime to read, do homework, etc, fairly easy job, good management, flexible schedule, lots of autonomy.

    Cons

    Can get really monotonous, hours were kind of weird because they were based on class schedules, hours fluctuated a lot between quarters.

    Advice to Management

    Not much other than trying to find a good baseline for hours and schedules. Management and coworkers were great.

    Pros

    Very comfortable and they very strongly encourage you to focus on school with the job as a secondary responsibility, which is nice.

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate its employees properly.

    I have been working at Olympic College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Set hours. Flexible. Rewarding work. Option to work up to 40 hours a week in between quarters.

    Overall it's been a great place to work. Everyone starts out working phones, but the longer you are there, the more fun and interesting things you get to do. Helping fix people's computer issues is personally rewarding, and making people smile always brightens your day.

    Cons

    Work can be slow at times.

    Pros

    The people are the best part. Have wonderful and competent coworkers. Can't recommend them highly enough. Very team oriented in my division.

    Cons

    The team approach is not across campus. There are definitely divisions between the various departments.

    Pros

    Hours will work around your school schedule. No dress code. A good chance to practice and review classes I've already taken.

    Cons

    Many of the tutors are HS running start students, so the level of professionalism is quite low.
