    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.

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Positive Outlook

    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.

    Management does not appreciate its employees properly.
