Working at Cuyamaca College was a great first job. I learned many skills such as carpet cleaning, stripping and waxing, water pressure, knowledge of cleaning chemicals, and buffering. I enjoyed the team work we had when setting up canopies and stages for the staff meetings. The pay was decent and never had any problems. I did not like the one pay check a month.
Tutoring and Study Center Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 8, 2014
Working for the college is enriching since you get the gift of helping students full-fill their educational goals. I loved the Tutors and helping the students. The hours were long but the rewards far out weighted the long hours.
Instructor (Former Employee) – El Cajon,CA – October 23, 2014
Great co-workers, great support, great campus! I was an instructor for College for Kids summer program. I had very little time to prepare for my sessions, a week, but they were so helpful and had trust in me and we got the job done fantastically. Kids and parents were very pleased with the classes. It was a wonderful experience.
Working as a tutor can be really frustrating and rewarding. Getting students to understand something and improving their studies is great, but sometimes it doesn't always work or some people will try to take advantage.
Organization is good enough, not enough people to always support the students.
Great position while I was in school, had a great mentor.
Student Development and Services (Former Employee) – El Cajon, CA – March 5, 2013
A typical day as a Student hourly for the Vice President was answering phones, duplicating, distributing mail, working directly with other departments at the school, recruiting students, building relations with local businesses, orgainizing events and mastering all clerical duties.
I loved my co-workers and my boss/mentor assisted in refining typing skills, creating spreadsheets, dealing with problem students and perfecting my writing skills. These skills, this day help me with even the basic needs for any job.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with and the flexibility I had being a student worker. The college worked around my school schedule, which made it the perfect job while attending school. I also loved working with the students and assisting them with any questions.
The hardest part of this job was leaving. Once you have completed so many units, you can no longer work at the college. This was a great experience.
Arabic Instructor (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 3, 2012
