PHOENIX COLLEGE experience report

  • 08.Dec 2015
  • Employee

What it could be

3.28

Company culture

It's difficult as there is a definite split among faculty, adjunct, F/T and P/T Temp staff

Support from Management

Immediate supervisor was fantastic. Further up the line, not so much.

Teamwork

Might start as team project but participation usually fell off if not completed quickly

Communication

Again, immediate supervisor was very good at keeping staff informed.

Gender Equality

Basing this rating on the treatment, or lack thereof, of temp/part time employees

Career Development

Only if full time; part timers and temps got little

Overall Compensation for your work

Adequate, but based on what county does as a whole

Office/Work Environment

Noisy; poor accoustics throughout the building, poor heat/a/c ventilation

Eco-consciousness

Seems more focused on money in

Company Image

Not enough publicity to let people know that PC exists and that there is a Prep Academy attached.

Job security

Good for F/T and faculty. Adjunct and part timers/temps not so lucky

Handicap Accessibility

Easy via bus and/or light rail

Workplace Safety

Public Safety Department is on the ball and very responsive

Challenging Work

Challenges in working with diverse people, but that also makes it interesting and fun

Inclusive/Diverse

Very diverse faculty and adjunct staff; HR not so much

Suggestions for improvement

  • Provide more opportunities for temps to obtain permanent employment--consider them INTERNAL candidates. Make PC known throughout the Valley and the Prep Academy--more students equals more enrollment dollars

What I like about the company

Loved working with supervisor and getting new assignments to stretch my skills and abilities

What I dislike about the company

Treated part time temps as non-people
