convenient and productive
GED/ESL Instructor (Former Employee), Austin, TexasAugust 11, 2014
Pros: worked independently.
Cons: challenging students.
A typical day at work was spent interacting with and teaching students, I learned that when I built relationships with my students it made it easier to teach them. I really didn't interact with co-workers except during training. The hardest part of the job was the preparation time before class, and the most enjoyable part of my job was when students – more... passed their test and got their GED or move to another level. – less

Instructor (Former Employee), Austin, TXJune 16, 2014
I loved being able to create online-instruction. It was a challenge to create clearly communicated expectations, deadlines, and assessments as well as meaningful feedback without that face-to-face student-teacher component, but I found it exceedingly intriguing and challenging and rewarding to make strides in learning through the virtual environment.

It – more... was a very enjoyable experience to evaluate technical writing in this completely technology-driven format. – less

Adjunct associate professor (Former Employee), Austin, TXApril 23, 2014
Pros: working at at acc, provided me free bus pass that also is a contribution to reduce gas emission.
Cons: the lack of budget of acc to offer full permanent time
At Austin AA I was working in a very positive and helpful environment
The institution is very well organized to facilitated student integral educative and personal development.

Colleges are willing to support new instructors, mentoring and sharing their educational materials.

Students were always very diligent and collaborative in their work in team – more... at lecture and laboratory activities.

I was able to be a dependable professor for my students and colleges.

I enjoyed to work sour rounding by young and enthusiast students

In a typical day I start lecture asking questions to the students or applying a small quiz. Then I start with the new chapter and explain at the end what techniques the students will be applying for a particular experiment.

I attended students as office hours or a personal appointment by requests. My students were at the end of the semester with an overall grade up to the 80%. – less

Productive and fun place to for
Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee), Austin, TXApril 12, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
My typical day at work is a busy one ... I love what I do because I am helping students of all ages to get their GED's and further their education.
I love my co-workers we have such fun in our work days .. everyone of us busy all day helping one another as well as the students that walk in our doors. My job is a very rewarding job.
I'd have to say the – more... hardest part of my job would be when I get those students (typically older) on the phone who are not happy about how their
classes may be going ... or when they walk into the office very unhappy.
But as long as they are leaving with the answers they came in looking for or helping them over the phone, it is a good day. – less

Fun very energetic environment
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Riverside CampusMarch 1, 2014
Pros: ability to study on my downtime of work
I worked in the gym of the campus and helped in the front desk signing in people who were using the gym or weight room. I also helped with 2 Strength, Flexibility and Conditioning class, 1 Aerobics class and a Pilates class. The instructors were nice and I would fill in for them anytime they had an emergency or could not be there or had to be late or – more... leave early. My co workers were also students and very nice to work with. I am very energetic and am passionate about fitness so this was very fun for me. I learned how to manage a small to large class or group of students and lead them through a series of workouts or techniques to help them reach certain goals they wanted by the end of the semester they were taking the class. – less

Great community service and education
Student Services Assistant (Current Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: culture
Cons: parking
Students are the pinnacle of our jobs, and our jobs are to serve the students. It is important to be briefed on policy and procedure while multi-tasking various projects in order to assure the student is successful in his career. Knowing when to quit recruiting at-risk students (all populations: new to college, transfer, returning, and adult, senior – more... students) is essential and important, considering the college offers MANY continuing education courses, certificates and enriching careers. A true passion for serving the community can be felt as part of the job/culture. Unfortunately their will not be much advancement in community affiliations and services to students due to budgetary concerns. – less
