A great place to learn.
Student (Current Employee), Santa Clarita, CAMarch 5, 2015
Pros: affordable, small class sizes, easily accessable
Cons: does not have the same resources as larger colleges or a university
College of the Canyons is a great place for those looking to further their education without having to pay university prices. The institution offers several associate level degrees in a variety of fields, as well as offering a select amount of university-level courses. There are a variety of programs that are available to assist students in many ways, be it financial or educational. While it does not have some of the facilities or resources that a university may have, it offers a great place to start on earning a higher education.

Cashier (Current Employee), Santa Clarita, CAJuly 1, 2014
College of the Canyons is a community college located at Santa Clarita CA. I am working at the College of the Canyons for over nine years (part time). I am always surrounded by highly educated staff and faculty members. I have acquired lots of great experience working with our professional staff in different departments. College of the Canyons has been a supportive environment in my working toward my educational goals. The college has skilled and professional management for each department. The hardest part of my job is the registration time. We get busy with lots of students trying to pay off their registrations fees, picking up their parking passes, requesting refunds, and extra. I enjoy helping students in their journey to achieve their goal and get a higher education.

Great School and program to teach
Auto Technology Instructor (Current Employee), Canyon Country, CAMarch 3, 2014
Pros: great teaching facility
Cons: the restrictions regarding which vehicles can be worked on in the shop.
I enjoy teaching at COC. My job includes writing lesson plans, issuing assignments, giving lectures, teaching important points from videos, giving PPT presentations and managing the Auto Lab.

I've learning important facets of how to teach more effectively and communicate better with the students. I am able to impart more information now more effectively than before.

The direct manager and Department Head always offers me the the opportunity to teach new classes as they become available.

The hardest part of the job is trying to meet the various levels of learning in the class so everyone is able to learn the material.

The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the students grow, learn and change for the better.

Pros: getting to do homework while working

I came in and sat at the first desk. My duty was to sign in&out current students coming in for either computer, tutors or other resources. At this job i was beginning to learn about working for a school i was attending. the management was at ease, and not so demanding. My co-workers were students as well so i seen them around campus. The hardest part of the job was to learn the new environment of my employee and the most enjoyable was helping others.
