    I worked at Walla Walla Community College as an intern

    Pros

    Loved working for my adviser and mentor, Timothy Burgoyne.

    Cons

    Wasn't always a lot of work to be done for the HVAC instructor, and he gave barely any instructions to begin with.

    Pros

    The people working there are always kind and helpful and willing to go the extra mile. The supervisors are supportive.

    Cons

    There are few full-time positions. After working there for five years as faculty, I have not had an opportunity for full-time work.

    Advice to Management

    Faculty would show more buy-in, participation in professional development and service on committees, if there were more full-time positions.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Great IT support for remote work; attentive, motivated students willing to learn and participate no matter the in-the-cloud-type classroom. Support for new ideas and advancing instructor knowledge of online or mixed venue class presentations.Opportunity for independence in designing instruction within rubrics.

    Cons

    Judgmental staff members scattered throughout an other wise positive process. Easy to miscommunicate between administrators and online instructors who are not regularly in the head office.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more instructors with permanent part-time to fulltime status that they might better avail themselves of a sense of belonging and benefits.

    I worked at Walla Walla Community College part-time

    Pros

    They will work around your clas schedule and they understand that you will not know everything right away and will train you on any and every thing you need to know with what you will be working on and with.

    Cons

    You will never have your own spot or personal space and will have things constantly moving around and taken from your desk, so anything you are worried about you should either take with you or lock up somewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Make more time to include all employees and realize that at times you make it feel like you play favorites and leave people out and some are treated like family where others are treated like strange visitors.
