Accountant II (Former Employee), Columbus OhioJanuary 16, 2014
Allowed for flexible start time. I learned most of what I know about being fiscally responsible from this employer. I started when they were small but they have grown to be a large community college. My co-workers were outstanding. The hardest part of this job was balancing the work load with the other aspects of the job. Reporting deadlines verses – more... customer service. I loved working for the college because of the opportunities it offers to its community. – less

I teach graphic design to college students. I enjoy teaching students and helping them reach their goals. I'm currently teaching high schoolers from Afrocentric High School who come to campus 3 days a week to experience a college classroom.
The professors in the department are really great and motivating. I feel very comfortable, with the freedom to – more... structure my classes in my own way.
The hardest part of my job is grading. It's tedious and time consuming and I don't enjoy it.
The most enjoyable part of my day is interacting with students and inspiring them. – less

Financial Aid Specialist (Fulltime) (Current Employee), Columbus, OHOctober 10, 2013
Pros: employee appreciation day, in-service and being able to be a part of the good things that happens for our students.
Cons: the job can become stressful.
My typical day at work would include answering calls, paying fee's, registering classes, giving general information concerning financial aid.

What I have learned here is excellent customer service skills. I have learned great work ethics, and most of all patience.

In my department there is great management staff that is always here for us to help, – more... to listen and encourge.

The co-workers that I work with are very good co-workers and we do work as a great team together.

The hardest part of the job is sometimes it can become stressful through the busy times.

The most enjoyable part of the job is that even through the stressful times we come together as a team to be there for each other. – less

This was the best job I ever had. I think the hardest part of this job was leaving it. I wish I could have stayed in Columbus and continue working there. If anyone ever has the chance to work for CSCC do not pass up the opportunity.

Large community college that is currently struggling with today's financial situations
Assistant Professor (Former Employee), Columbus, OHJune 13, 2013
Pros: some wonderful faculty, great students, nice office.
Cons: the work was never done.
I loved my job working with students, providing them with a solid foundation for successful nursing practice and seeing them progress from wanting to be told everything they needed to know, to be responsible and willing to spend the time utilizing resources to reinforce their knowledge.
The hardest part was the poor communication from middle management: – more... they did not know how to do the things they were demanding that I do. The chain of command was strong, but assistance with learning new aspects of college requirements was very poor. – less

Awesome Benefits and Work Environment
IT Support Technician (Current Employee), Columbus, OhioJune 11, 2013
Pros: 10 dollar massages, free parking, 75% off dependent tuition, free tuition, and money toward continuing education
Cons: no opportunities for advancement and lacking in leadership and goals
My typical day begins at 7:15. I have been opening the CSCC IT Support Center for 3 years. I have learned valuable skills in interpersonal communication and team work. I have also learned a lot about Virtual Machines, SEP, AD, SCCM, Novell Zenworks and GroupWise, MS Outlook, MS Office 2007, 2010, 2013. I am also assisting in rolling out the Office 365 – more... upgrade to our students.
Management was awesome, until my manager left. It is now run by a temporary manager who currently has another full time job at the college. It is understandably a tough spot for this person to be in, and he does the best job he can. My only concern is that my manager has been gone for 3 months, and they have yet to post his job.
I love my co-workers. We work together so well, and they are kind, understanding and they truly do their best.
The hardest part of the job is trying to walk an end user through a process you don't fully understand. I try very hard to learn as much as I can about technology, but it changes so quickly, that it can be tough to stay on top of it all.
I love my co-workers, I love the students, and I love the vibe of the college. It is a very positive place to work. I enjoy seeing students strive, achieve, and above improve their lives through education. – less
