Low salary. Unappreciative bosses.
Staff (Current Employee), GLCJuly 23, 2015
Low salary. Unappreciative bosses. Internal fights and politics makes me sick. VPs don't care about staff. Keep looking for better opportunities.

Fun place to work
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Waukegan, ILJuly 16, 2015
Pros: Interacting with the students
Cons: one class per week
College of Lake County was a part time job. I worked at the Waukegan Campus one night a week, teaching adults in the business workplace about the conventions of grammar and writing.

Management was available to help with materials and lesson planning if needed. The most difficult part of the job was a three-hour class once a week. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching my adult students learn how to correctly write correspondence.
I learned that there was much for me to learn. I grew from this experience.

Did not like it at all

Too much
Staff (Former Employee), GLCJune 19, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Too much work. Too much stress. Crazy.
CLC is trying to cut many positions and let people go. Management cares less about anything except of meeting budget cut objectives. Stress is in the air. No appreciation whatsoever.

Seeing young Navy men and women learn skills for use in the fleet was very rewarding
Instructor/curriculum designer (Former Employee), Great Lake, ILJune 15, 2015
Pros: Able to see the immediate results of my efforts.
Cons: Extremely low pay.
My four years with the College of Lake County were mostly working with young sailors teaching them basic electronics or developing the curriculum they learned from. The environment easy to work in but the compensation was very low for the hours required. Seeing these young people get excited about what they were learning was very satisfying.

Opportunity to get my hands dirty
Student Worker in Technical Theatre Department (Former Employee), Grayslake, ILJanuary 28, 2015
Work days started as early as 7 AM and ended as late as 7 PM, especially during summer musical productions. Days included anything from organizing props to building elaborate sets with different woods and metals, utilizing anything from spray paint to a pneumatic stapler. My management was intent on creating a friendly work place environment, while also completing tasks efficiently and with precision. The hardest part was learning how to use the different tools and equipment, but that was easily overcome with practice and slowing down to speed up. The most enjoyable part was the process of building, and the reward was seeing it all come together.

Great people all working together to continuously improve all aspects of the college
Office Associate - Facilities Department (Former Employee), Grayslake, ILJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: very limited breaks and lunches, always on call
Working as an office associate in the facilities department at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL for almost 9 years (some time spent as a student worker) taught me so much about teamwork and most of all about people in general. My department was in charge of all of the building's grounds, maintenance, heating and cooling, and custodial. A typical day at work involved general office duties and providing direct support for the Facilities Director and other department supervisors. This job required strong customer service involving all different kinds of people, including but not limited to staff, faculty, students, vendors, outside event coordinators, and various members of the community. Every day was different and I loved the constant multitasking. The hardest part of the job was also in a way the most rewarding part as well - having to think on your feet in a quick but effective manner in solving various issues, dealing with difficult people, and most importantly following through with each and every person to ensure the customer was happy and the job, whatever it may be, was done right.
