    I worked at Yavapai College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Too many pros to name. Fantastic colleagues, wonderful benefits, great students, and programs. Everything about YC was incredible. Work-life balance was unmatched. A week off in spring for spring break, two weeks in winter for winter break, every Friday off in the summer. I miss the people & the benefits.

    Cons

    Wish that the wages were higher.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Yavapai College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked 4 different student jobs while attending Yavapai college and it was a great experience. I worked with really awesome people. The pay was good and having jobs available on campus made the work/school balance easy to manage.

    Cons

    The only downfall was that since these are student jobs you don't work over winter break and you have to be a current student.

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

    Pros

    The community of Prescott Arizona and its environs are wonderful. The administration and faculty of Yavapai College are diverse, fascinating, and worldly.

    Cons

    Prescott Arizona is a small city about 100 miles north of Phoenix with a spectacular year-round climate, but it sometimes lacks the amenities of a larger city.

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

    Pros

    Academic, friendly community environment.
    No music in the background.
    Every day is different.
    Helping people who really want your help.
    Some kind, caring students.
    Great co-workers.
    Everyone is there for the students.

    Cons

    Some students have different expectations of what a tutor does ('You'll do my homework for me, right?').
    Everyone is there for the students, because the pay is minimum wage. (That's alright with me :)
    Unfortunately, this position remains part-time. I have talked with HR about getting more hours, but for now it remains 19.5 hrs maximum per week.

    Advice to Management

    I've heard countless testimonies of how the Learning Center has changed students' lives and academic accomplishments, giving them the tools they need to succeed in their classes. I only wish there was a way this could be better documented. Those who take the surveys seem to be a small portion of those who benefit from the tutors at the LC.
