    I have been working at Sinclair Community College part-time

    Pros

    There used to be a lot of good until upper management became more involved.

    Cons

    I think David Sinclair would be EMBARRASSED by the lack of care for employees. Find the need and the endeavor to meet it. Yeah whatever. I can't figure out what the motivation is. I really had nothing bad to say about working here until the higher ups and VPs decided to ELIMINATE positions with no explanation as they are building a new student services center. My colleagues and I were able to apply for the new positions, but many did not get an interview. I believe the college is taking a turn for the worst in the student services and enrollment arena. It seems as though they want robots with no personalities who will not question anything that upper management does.

    Advice to Management

    be more transparent and be loyal for crying out loud. employees have dedicated their lives to this place and you will be terminating them in January with no explanation. It's obnoxious and unprofessional. This is supposed to be a safe place and an EDUCATIONAL CENTER. Not a business.

    Pros

    Being able to walk from class to work is convenient. Work in a friendly atmosphere while gaining job experience.

    Bureaucracy makes simple tasks a lot more time consuming than necessary. Not allowed to work more than 20 hours per week.

    I have been working at Sinclair Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers are awesome and the best part of working at Sinclair

    Cons

    no benefits for PT employees, hiring for fulltime positions is NOT merit based, but based on who you know period. Current layoffs are occurring that are being kept very hush hush. Older employees and veterans are being let go Very unethical employment practices. Loyal, long term, part time employees are treated horribly. More concern about enrollment numbers than graduation rates.

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating the people you have working for you. Get rid of top heavy management and department heads.Maybe President Johnson could take a pay cut.

    I worked at Sinclair Community College part-time

    Pros

    Balanced level of supervision with great flexibility to work while taking classes. I was able to work around my class schedule.

    There were really no cons to this position. Sinclair was a great place to work while I was taking classes to expand my options.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice to management, but this requires a 20 word minimum, so here goes: Great Place!

    Pros

    There are many dedicated, wonderful people who work here. The majority of the faculty and staff have a cooperative, helpful, friendly attitude that makes them great to work with. There is a very positive culture at Sinclair. People here are doing good work.

    Cons

    The wages are not high enough for support staff. I don't have many complaints although I wish the food from Aramark was better.
