    I have been working at Pima Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to set my own schedule and my boss has always been very understanding when it comes to needing time off. My coworkers have always been a joy to work around and are quite helpful when they see you struggling.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great and has gotten significantly worse this past year thanks to the minimum wage hike. It really hit the college hard and saw to it that most of us got our hours cut back significantly and now instead of making slightly more than minimum wage we no longer do.

    I have been working at Pima Community College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Low stress environment, friendly staff and students, Easily approachable administrators with open door policy.

    Cons

    Faculty have too much power within the organization, ignoring administrative policies they do not feel like following. Very little progress or encouragement to implement new or more efficient methods of performing work. Ideas instantly shot-down by supervisor if it was not the supervisor's idea.

    Position was a temp position for over 10 years with multiple positions within the department and at multiple campuses. Okay if you are a student planning to stay for short length of time.

    Advice to Management

    Create standardized time slots for classes allowing instructors to select which class(es) they wish to teach, instead of allowing instructors to schedule their class start times.

    Work with faculty to develop and understanding that other individuals can have ideas that work, their way is not the -only- way.

    Encourage employees to come up with ways to improve efficiency or workflow and give employees a small bit of time (an hour every week? 2-weeks?) to develop the idea.
