instructor (Current Employee) – Janesville, WI – October 31, 2015
My co-workers are passionate about helping people improve their career opportunities. The students are motivated and enthusiastic which makes working with them a pleasure. Management doesn't listen to opposing opinions. My schedule is flexible other than class times and office hours. The benefits have taken a big hit since the state governor has implemented changes. Every year for the past three years, staff and faculty live in fear of losing their jobs.
Dean of Protective Services (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – June 20, 2015
As one of the Academic Deans within the Technical College System was a very rewarding experience. I started with Blackhawk in the middle of the re-education process for displaced GM workers. Working with a number of adults returning to college along with newly graduated high school students was a very interesting mix. During my employment the managerial staff was extremely supportive and motivated its middle management staff to think outside of the box. I became committed to prividing career pathways for students and worked deligently with recruitment and retention. Coming from a law enforcement career to higher education was a bit of a challenge. New terminology and practices put me on a learning curve, but I was able to adapt quite well. Learning how to supervise instructional staff versus law enforcement personell was a bit difficult at first, but turned out to be the most enjoyable part of my job. Overall my eperience with BTC was positive, productive and a learning experienc.

If your goal is to provide a strong learning environment for students, you may have difficulty here. Management seeks to control the learning environment, instead education should be controlled by trusted faculty. Additionally, job security is poor.
Library Aide (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – April 17, 2015
Helped college students to get the right resources for them to succeed in their classes. I checked out books and checked them in and put them back to their proper places on the shelves. I would make sure the books was in good shape and made sure the magazines were up to date.

WORK STUDY SECRETARY (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – March 7, 2013
This job was so long ago i dont exactly remember what i did. I met students and staff when i helped with collecting assignments. Made packets for staff, answered phones and made copies. Co-workers were nice and brought me candy and/or cupcakes daily.
A great way to help my fellow students who needed the help.
Academic Tutor (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – June 23, 2012
A typical day for me was, I helped out students that needed the help in accounting related subjects along with students that needed help in Microsoft office. I learned that not all people learned at the same level and that it was a joy to work with those that needed the help. It made me feel proud when I was able to help those that needed the help and they learned and passed the course that I was tutoring them in. The hardest part of the job was giving it up at the end of the semister because I didn't have the time to do it anymore with my school work load I had my final semister.
teaching those that needed the help
finishing school and not being able to help those that need it anymore
