Student Life Assistant Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 4, 2014
honest worker, can achieve anything put to mind. I enjoy helping out with the students, I love all my co-workers, and love to be challenge to better myself with life obstacles. the most enjoyable part of day is being able to make guest or co-worker smile. the hardest part was learning to work the copy/scan machine but I got it working then it became by best friend.
Free Lunch, long breaks, and flexiable schedule
short work hours, less office space and not a lot of opportunity
Clinical instructor (Current Employee) – Coconut Creek, FL – September 29, 2016
Broward College is a community in which diversity is valued and is equal opportunity employer. It offers programs to attract and retain talented and diverse professional staffs. As a part time clinical instructor I am not qualified for most of the programs. Benefits offers to full time employees . Usually I am only on campus 2-3 days before each semester to prepare the students for clinical. The staff is great easy to work with each one, very helpful offer their assistance to most of the adjuncts. Our associate Dean has an open door policy. I do not have a hard part of the job because I love to work as a Nurse, love to teach, encourage and facilitate the students to success achievement and productive lives.
Financial AID Assistant (Former Employee) – Davie, FL – December 10, 2016
Very Hostile environment to work in. You face a lot of irate students on a typical day. Just know patience is a virtue if you decide to work here. Never argue with the students. Always try to give the best service that you can. The supervisors don't communicate very well with the employees which makes it very hard for the employees to communicate well with the students. Even though I learned a lot of valuable information and skills from the people i worked with overall i had a terrible experience. Bottom line is if you do not work well in a stressful environment, this is not the place for you.
Lead Campus Technology Specialist (Former Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – October 24, 2015
Management driven policies are driving the organization to the bottom of the ocean. Meanwhile, some of the best talents are jumping ship. As the institution continues to move to toward a corporate model, it is losing the community paradigm it was once known for and valued. There is either a lack of care or maybe it’s a strategy to undervalue employee, or no one just has not gotten a clue on how to move the ship away from this wreck.
Work/life balance is somewhat flexible.
The pay and benefits are horrible. The margin for career advancement is very small.
When I first started working at Broward College, it was Broward Community College. During my time there, the college expanded to include several four-year programs.
As for my time there specifically, I worked part-time at the Buehler Planetarium and Observatory (BPO), where I presented shows in the planetarium, guided stargazers around the sky at the observatory, and worked on whatever other projects my bosses asked me to do. Resources like the BPO are somewhat rare, so I always respected Broward (Community) College for funding its scientific gem.
employee (Current Employee) – N/A – December 10, 2015
Broward College used to be the dream job for anyone that wanted to work there. They used to have so many activities for students, faculty and staff. The college has dropped the morale of many many employees by the recent layoffs. Over 200 employees have been let go since last year. The college has an agenda to sub contract many of its departments. Soon it will be the worse place in the world to work at.
Benefits are good if you're single with no children
Growth within departments or advancements aren't great
Adjunct Psychology Professor (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – January 19, 2016
My typical lecture engages students in a myriad of subjects within the field of psychology.
Teaching can and is bidirectional.
I have learned from my students as well as teaching them the fundamentals of basic psychology.
I learned that engaging my audience, one must consistently and methodologically attend to each person, even in a large classroom setting.
This means balancing out relevent questions while balancing the general knowledge of the classroom.
I have enjoyed the multicultural aspect of the management at this setting.
The most challenging part of this position was getting hired the day prior and having the responsibility to students to create syllabi and presentations and reading the required textbook to freshen up on what I was about to lecture.
The most enjoyable part of this job, like therapy, is knowing when a difference is made and a student actually learns from my lectures. I have been personally moved when students have taken the time out to thank me and explained that psychology was broken down to be understandable in what can be abstract and sometimes complex to undergraduate students.
Interracting with students of many backgrounds
Adjunct professor does not come with health benefits
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – March 8, 2017
I very much enjoyed working at Broward College when it was Community College. The people were down to earth and very helpful. This school really did make a huge difference in my life, I will never forget the time I worked here.
Broward college is cool to work for. my coworkers were really nice and they helped me to learn the ins and out of my job and I appreciated that . There was really no cons to the job except that its a job for someone with not much responsibility based on the hours given.
Campus Officer (Former Employee) – Coconut Creek, FL – July 6, 2016
the job is easy, management and school dean have too much input in security. Overtime is given to their liking. Shop stewards are useless. And the secretary may adjust your pay if she don't like you. Policys mean nothing and can be fired easily if you don't follow in house rules even if its not in the policy.
Productive and engaging with students while still having a excting time at work, also dealing with non students such as faculty and parents.
Orientation Leader/ Office of Student Life (Former Employee) – Davie, FL – July 29, 2016
1) A typical day would consist of engaging, assisting and informing students opportunities around the college. 2) I learned to how to be a professional and a representative of the institution in which will help with conducting productively and responsibly in the work place. 3) Management was very helpful in guiding us to become young adults and teaching us the proper ways to work in a professional setting while still enjoying what we do everyday with the "FISH Philosophy". 4) Coworkers were exceptional to work with and have become very close friends due to the bonds that are created through a teamwork environment. 5) The hardest part of the job is to consistently remain positive even when things don't work out as planned, that is also important because it helps us smile and address individuals with the best customer service once they walk through the doors. 6) The most enjoyable part about the job is the environment you arrive to everyday; friendly faces, teamwork excises and overall a fun and productive work environment.
