Administrator (Former Employee) – Saint Bonifacius, MN – August 25, 2017
Crown College could be great but falls short. The students and faculty are tremendous. Its leadership, however, does not appear to appreciate its mission. The leadership does not appear to value its staff.

Crown College was an excellent place to work. I was given assignments that were exciting and interesting to me and was often allowed a great deal of creative license. I learned how to gather information from direct sources, how to organize this information and present it in an interesting way. The management was always very supportive and looking for ways to engage with me and make good use of my skill set. The work culture was relaxed, but also motivated and very ambitious. The hardest part of the job was probably the information gathering, but this was also very rewarding. The most enjoyable part of the job was being given creative license to take projects the direction I desired.
Facilities Management Worker (Former Employee) – Saint Bonifacius, MN – July 7, 2017
Received work orders on a regular basis. I learned many basic skills and techniques working maintenance. Structure of management was well put together. Workplace was great! My own lack of experience made work harder because it was hard to know what to do all the time when fixing things. Best part was learning new ways to fix things.
Close to home, very understanding, super flexible
pay was poor due to it being work study, no chance to move up or get a raise
College Professor (Current Employee) – Powell, TN – May 27, 2017
I've worked for Crown College since 2001. Obviously, I love my job. It's a small college so we have a family-like feeling. Our students come from all over the United States and from many foreign countries. It's a privilege to invest in their lives.
We develop great relationships with our students over the typical four years they spend with us. We tearfully say good bye when they graduate, but look forward to keeping up with their lives as they begin a new chapter. It's incredibly rewarding.

Crown has a wonderful environment to work in, and is known as the hidden gem of the twin cities. I was able to grasp many useful interoffice skills that will better ensure success in the next job I am able to pursue.
Coordinator of Student Activities (Current Employee) – St. Bonifacius, MN – June 23, 2014
A typical day at my job required me to lead a student leader group at Crown College to organize and facilitate on and off campus events for the student body at Crown College. I was required to plan and lead staff training for a group of thirteen students. I worked to create a strong community base at Crown College that broke barriers between the various groups at the college (i.e. Athletes, international students, etc). I was also in charge of planning and facilitating events for 250+ incoming students at the start of the school year. The most difficult part of my job was ensuring that the events would be enjoyable for various groups of students. The interests of college students varies considerably, and to meet the needs of all the students in one event proved to be difficult. The most enjoyable part of my job was training student leaders to become influential leaders on campus. It was encouraging to see their growth through the years and to impact students around them.
Team Member (Current Employee) – St. Bonifacius – April 5, 2012
I arrive at 7am, do my daily swipe of the woodshop checking cleanliness and taking out the trash. After, my boss and I would go through work-orders setting up our schedule for the day. Then we would get started on whatever was of highest priority. I have learned a lot about small construction and relational skills. We deal with customers on almost every order, communicating details. Management is questionable. Some of the decision making seems erratic and not well thought out. My immediate supervisor is great but our boss does not show any appreciation of our work. Hardest part of the job is not feeling appreciated. Most enjoyable is completed a job that brings a smile to the customers.
