Great place to do work study while attending school
Student Worker (Current Employee), Lexington, KY – June 19, 2014
I have a wonderful boss, she talks to me when I need someone to talk to and very understanding. The part about my job is that I am not in a busy department so when school is in session, I can focus on my class work. My co-workers are awsome, they always make sure its not boring.
Call Center Agent (Current Employee), Lexington, KY – April 16, 2014
Pros: great boss, great environment
Cons: temporary job, no benefits
A typical day at my job includes me answering the phone and greeting visitors. My manager is amazing and easy going. My co-workers are friendly. The hardest part of my job is parents that call in wanting information on a student, which we can't give them and in return makes them very upset. The most enjoyable part of my job is everyone has a good attitude – more... and my boss praises our good work and sometimes rewards us with pizza – less
Exciting and great for feeling like you've truly helped others.
Adjunct Faculty Member (Current Employee), Lexington, KY – April 25, 2013
Pros: many opportunities to volunteer and get involved. free meals during events.
Cons: people do not know what they shuld do and when they should do it.
Every day I would plan out my lessons for my courses, either days or weeks in advance. There were a lot of days spent grading assignments. And I truly enjoyed the lectures I gave during class when I could tell the students were absorbing and holding onto the information. My coworkers were always there for help and any advice needed. My supervisor was – more... always available via email to assist with any classroom issues I may have had. The hardest part of the job is watching students fail the class because they are not willing to put forth any work for their coursework. But I truly enjoy knowing that many of my students have enjoyed my class and have learned a lot about the subject and themselves. – less
Bluegrass Community and Technical College is a rewarding place of employment
Tutor Bluegrass Community and Technical College (Current Employee), Lexington, KY – August 2, 2012
Pros: teaching students
Cons: students don't always show up
I typically tutor four students a week when I'm not engaged in my own coursework. BCTC is an excellent community college and has many dedicated teachers. The only part of the tutoring job I don't like is when the students don't show up for our session. I don't work full-time here but have applied for an adjunct teaching position in the education depaaaaartment.
