Suggestions for improvement

  • Acknowledge the value of senior employees and how they earnestly work putting hours in off the clock. Show respect for their contributions and their integrity.

Office / Work Environment

supplies are low and not ordered when needed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • place orders ahead of time as in other colleges.

What I dislike about the company

The department was very tight on supplies and what was needed to practice the procedures.

The following perks were offered to me

Company Culture

There is no trust when you work daily under the pressure that the college already has their own staff waiting to move into your position. This is fact at least in my department and I believe it is so from what my coworkers have experienced.

Teamwork

We were all told daily that anyone of us could be let go so it was every man for himself type of stress. Supplies for students were horded so that one instructor always had good reports in teaching.

Internal Communication

No, there was no regular meetings with the new director; only a selective few were given necessary information. Not everyone was included in this.

Attitude towards older colleagues

No. No mention of an anniversary of years of service to the company. There was no recognition of the knowledge from years of experience was ever expressed. Just the opposite, senior workers were passed over and not included; they were laid off.

Career Development

They had their times when we were to turn in our personal development.

Overall compensation for your work

I was hired at an acceptable salary. Within two months we were asked to take a pay cut, which we all did. Three years later, I was still working for lower salary then when hired. I was full time and relied on for any aspect of running the department.

Office / Work Environment

The computers were a major headache to use when that section of the student's instruction focused on front office procedures. They were an embarrassment and I was made to looked incompetent.

Work-Life Balance

Yes holidays were listed as part of your benefits, however the holiday hours were mandatory to make up either by adding extra hours to class until the 'holiday hours' were made up or teach an additional day to make up the hours. Worst part was these 'made up hours' were to be taught without pay. No real holiday pay.

Company Image

No, the employees still with the company are afraid to speak out. We used to joke about the 'boxes' you'd see go by daily, as employees were fired or laid off. The reality is there are plenty of boxes around still to load your things when you are dismissed.

Job Security

No job is stable there. It got so bad that I never bothered to try and learn the new employee's name; they'd be gone at any time.
No goodbyes.

Handicapped Accessibility

Doors are very heavy to open. I have even thrown out my shoulder when I first started working there from the weight of the door.

Workplace Safety

There was training of OSHA standards yearly. I know in my department it was a matter of trying to enforce it that had opposition.

Challenging Work

Yes I was. I have many years of experience in this field and have seen many of my students succeed. I am proud of them and the role I played in their lives.

What I like about the company

I was an employee

The following perks were offered to me

Teamwork

This is after the change of ownership

Internal Communication

This area especially was poor, unless you happened to be one of the "favorites" brought in with the take over

Office / Work Environment

Very poor, supplies not there for students, yet were always promised.

Work-Life Balance

This area is the most severely neglected of all.

Challenging Work

I... alone, feel that I do more than the program has to offer the students; I bring in my own items and give of my own time to make up for the lack the program offers the students.
