Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – May 9, 2017
The job of office assistant and tutor was really fulfilling. Great boss and great flexibility while taking classes there as well. I originally went to CCRI to advance in my social work career and picked up biology after being exposed to it,and then enjoyed helping others with the tricky concepts.
Wonderful Students, not much of a community for adjunct profs
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Providence, RI – August 6, 2016
The students at CCRI are wonderful because they want to learn, and often are making sacrifices to be there. I have the utmost respect for my students. The pay, however is comical given how much work I put into each class, and there is no effort to include adjuncts in any part of the community.
Assistant to the Dean of Student Life (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – May 21, 2016
While a stressful place to work. The culture, made by the massive background of students and faculty, is excellent. As well, the management is fantastic and foster development unlike anywhere else I've worked.
Managing Editor (Current Employee) – Warwick, RI – May 20, 2016
A typical day at work would be arriving into the office at your designated office hours and either writing articles, editing articles, or using Indesign. The hardest part of the job is being told what to do.
Assistant to the Dean of Students (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – December 2, 2015
The Dean was an amazing boss, and was always understanding and helpful. It was a great experience, and a helpful look into an office as well as the management of a school.
I spent most of my day responding to email correspondence, as well as creating and reviewing documents for student organizations. I would take messages for the Dean if they were in a meeting or out. I would spend extended periods at a desk, but would occasionally be sent to meets on the Dean's behalf. I kept regular correspondence with other departments, of both faculty and staff.
The hardest part of the job was having to separate myself as a student with the issues at hand. But any self-doubt or worries I had, were easily dismissed when taking council from the Dean.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working closely with teachers, and aiding them in finding new ways to integrate their classes with the school's many student-run organizations.
Student Worker (Current Employee) – Lincoln, RI – August 2, 2015
Work is very slow in the summer. Most come for the pool being the weight room and gym are exclusive to students. The School year is more chaotic with new students asking for help and non-students trying to sneak in. The supervisors are helpful and friendly as well. When things are slow you're allowed to do homework too or just look at your phone.
Very lenient to schedule, if you need the day off you can just let them know via text.
Can get very boring at times if you have nothing to do, you're limited to how many hours you can work.
Information Receptionist (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – June 2, 2015
My favorite thing about Community College or Rhode Island was being able to work in the Information Desk at the Liston Campus. I was able to connect with a lot of students, and recognize staff in each department. Being able to help students made me feel important. Another reason why I loved working at the Liston Campus is because of the different varieties of diversity and culture. It amazes me to know that we have a lot of students from all over the country.
Student Veterans Officer (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – May 21, 2015
A typical day as a student veterans officer consists of communicating with other student veterans, who are no longer active in the service, and guiding them to their goal career path. Consulting with students about their academic concerns, assisting them in obstaining support and or resources to meet specific needs. Basically working with student veterans to facilitate a successful transition to civilian life. Management and co-workers were the best to work with because they were also veterans themselves so that are able to relate to all. They all came from different branches, however, they worked toward one goal and that was to help one another. Most enjoyable part of the job was coordinating events just for student veterans to get to know one another and network.
Productive place and fun becuase of classmates and co-workers
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Providence, Rhode Island – March 3, 2015
I sign in/out students on the CCRI system that they're studying and/or getting some type of educational help. I learned more about computers and how to find information and find my way in this community college. I get along pretty well with my boss and my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is to help a lot of students at the same time when they're anxious but it's not that hard, I can still manage. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to help others on the things that I needed help once.
Flexible schedule and I can do homework when I'm not busy.
