Tutor (Former Employee), ChicagoNovember 1, 2014
I worked with a lot of students (the most of any with my position) but wasn't acknowledged at all. I learned that in spite of the environment that I had to remain professional. Management was favorable to some but not to others. There were times in which the area of advancement was mentioned, but I was not considered for the position though I was the – more... most qualified.

My co-workers were the best! I'm still in touch with some of them, well, on social media anyway. The job wasn't really that difficult, though it was very enjoyable. I enjoyed helping the students and the relationships I established with my co-workers. – less

Fun workplace
Lab Technician & Office Aide (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 2, 2014
Pros: learning so many different things.
Cons: it was only part-time & was through work-study.
A typical day at work would be setting up classrooms for experiments, data entry, answering phones & taking orders, & doing presentations in front of classes. I learned that even though your work may not be in the field that you actually want to work in you can learn a lot & really enjoy it. Management was very patient & understanding. My co-workers – more... were very understanding & helpful. The hardest part of the job was learning about all of the different chemicals. My most enjoyable part of the job was doing presentations in front of the classes. – less

fun place to work in the right perspective
PT Security Officer (Current Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 26, 2014
Pros: not bad pay, internal promotions, friendly law enforcement brothers and sisters
Cons: no healthcare, no campus specific training
Fun place to work, most guys and girls are off duty PD elsewhere, so the job culture can be more laid back. Most incidents can be easily deescalated by treating students or outsiders with respect. For pt this is the best campus security/police job. Most staff and faculty are friendly, they like seeing you at your posts but they also like seeing you – more... walk around. Biggest thing with this job its hard to get into but once you're in its a union, pretty decent flexibility with scheduling for your ft job, and retirement benefits. Being fair but firm wins on a typical shift if problems arise but things can become routine if you don't interact with campus community. – less

Always learning something new.
Project Clerical Tech. (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: good learning environment!
Cons: good health care! try to get in as career service not grant money.
Answering phones, setting up trainings, scheduling trainings, accounts payable, ordering material, assembling material for training, update data base, mailing invitations for training, updating policy manual. Mailing certificates/policy update to trainers, setting up meetings, helping to prepare grants, collecting/auditing payroll cards for staff. Our – more... team worked well together and we help to coordinate conferences, meet a lot of different people from all walks of life.

We had the best Directors in the world! They would teach you how to do things to benefit you as an individual, allow you to learn other skills as you worked. We the staff would teach each other thing we learned. Our leaders would roll up their sleeve and help us assemble manuals, etc. This is what made them great leaders because, they were not concerned about helping the clerks and getting their hands dirty. For this I say: THANK YOU!

Hard part was to see your team members leave. Even though you know it is for their growth. It's still hard. – less

Horrible place
Senior Payroll Analyst (Consultant) (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 18, 2014
The culture here is not good, the people are so far behind in technology it's ridiculous. The whole place is just a waste of someone coming to work in the morning for someone that wants to be productive.

Critical institutional mission at a key moment in city's history
Federal Liaison (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 27, 2014
I joined the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) at a pivotal time in both the institution's and the city's history. As the country seeks to get Americans trained for the jobs of today and tomorrow, CCC is playing an important role in making that happen in Chicago. Like any large governmental organization, there are bureaucratic obstacles. However, leadership – more... is doing what it can to minimize the red tape. Although I would like to see a more active attempt to acknowledge, cultivate and reward employee talent. – less

Then it's – more... off to meetings, inventory checks, and other various duties to say the least. – less
