    I worked at Rio Salado College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you like working with veterans and helping them to succeed in life then working at the East Valley Veterans Education Center is a place to be. It will not only be fulfilling in your life but the partnerships and the community help you will be involved in is the vest.

    Cons

    As a Part Time Veterans Assistant the pay is not the best and the potential for growth is not there.

    Advice to Management

    Site Coordinator is spot on with what he can do. Top Management needs to let go of the rains and the center do what it needs and get on board or watch the center close. The center is just not an educational center but its a huge resource facility to the veteran community and one that needs to be promoted a lot to drive the over 270 thousands of veterans living in Maricopa County alone.

    Pros

    I really enjoy working for Rio Salado College. Everyone is very nice and I feel administration is fair. I am serving my passion with the work I do.

    Cons

    Being a part time employee, there are no benefits. This is unfortunate as I see quite a lot of turnover in staff.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate my manager allowing me to do my job without feeling as though she needs to hover over me. I feel that we work as a team rather than a boss/employee relationship.

    Pros

    - Great benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    They only have 30 full time faculty and put everyone else into other job categories. These other categories do not translate easily to other colleges

    Pros

    The managers do a great job setting you up for success and the higher ups do a good job listening to department needs

    Cons

    They have too many part time employees which means too much turnover. Simply hiring more full timers would solve this issue

    Advice to Management

    Hire more full timers to combat the high turnover within the department

    I worked at Rio Salado College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits,
    Can help some people -students,

    Cons

    Management are clueless about managing. They have a PhD in something so somehow they learn management by that simple fact, at least that's how they operate.
    They hire their friends and relatives regardless of qualifications
    They ignore warnings.
    Very very clicky
    Pro-hispanic which is great but they are anti-caucasian. Not sure how they are with other races but I don't think it's great.
    The president walks around and talks to the hispanic employees and ignores most caucasians except the higher management

    Advice to Management

    Take a course on management.
    Be inclusive.

    I have been working at Rio Salado College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are good teams of people. Great community. The positions are incredibly stable. There is some upwards mobility. Once you're in, you can stay as long as you want.

    Cons

    Not always busy. Part-time positions are only give you 19.5 hours/week. For some people, it is not busy enough for them.

    Advice to Management

    RioSalado is run very well. Always keeps up to date with new technology and systems.
