LAC+USC works under the same umbrella as USC, which both employees share great things among them both. However, I believe that LAC job security are a lot better then USC

Fun work environment
Supplemental Instruction Coach (Former Employee), Torrance, CAFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: great students, make good friends, sense of accomplishment when student understands
Cons: no breaks, no healthcare, no help from management, no one to go to for help then being critiqued for it the thing you couldn't get help on
Great work environment. Terrible Management, had no concept of what coaches had to do to get students into the class room or to keep them informed. Also was in charge of a program was unable to do algebra or many other classes in which the coaches were responsible.

Co-workers were a great team but we were all caped on 25 hours and many of us worked over those hours almost ever week with no appreciation from management as well as harassment about paperwork from someone who has been doing that paperwork off and on for 2 years.

El Camino College is a community college located in Torrance, CA
Admin Assist (Current Employee), Torrance, CAOctober 8, 2014
Pros: mostly pleasant people; good benefits if full-time
Cons: no benefits if part-time and can feel like part-timers are more disposable.
El Camino College is currently undergoing renovations to its physical site.; it's lovely interior grassy area will stay. It has some administrative and faculty/staff trust issues presently but they were able to come to a satisfactory conclusion concerning their recent contract negotiations. Morale can seem low at times but many strong relationships exist on the campus with the faculty and staff. The College has great benefits if you are able to secure full-time employment. They do work with many part-timers so that can be discouraging since the College has implemented a 25 hour maximum work week for all part-timers which includes both faculty and staff.

Very Productive
Library Assistant (Former Employee), Torrance, CaliforniaAugust 28, 2014
I worked two jobs at this campus; SI Coach and Library Assistant. With being a SI Coach, a typical day would consist of attending my assigned class and listen to the lecture so I can prepare an activity for the students who decide to attend my session after the lecture. Depending if there was an upcoming test or just a lecture determined what I planned for the students to do/study. With being a Library Assistant, a typical day was checking out and shelving textbooks and periodicals, making sure the area was clean, assisting students, etc. One thing the staff wanted to make sure was that the workers always had something to do and I did just that.

Easy going , good comradery with co-workers.
For many years, the college had major budget cuts, consecutively.
Very little money for basic repair parts or materials ; difficult to be responsible for equipment with very few resources.
Most employees were professional, responsible, respectful and good natured..
Little chance for advancement, but very stable employment.

Tutor (Former Employee), Torrance, CAApril 2, 2014
Cons: short break
It is about 4 hours per day in the study center to help different level of math students. I enhance my communication and writing abilities during that time. Most of students are very nice and friendly and my co-workers are very helpful while the study center is busy.

The hardest part is that I have to manage my time with single student while there are too many students need help at peak time. But, it gives me positive feeling to help lots of people.

Casual Worker - Alternative Media Services (Current Employee), Torrance, CAFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: free snacks
Cons: not enough hours and no room for growth
Each day has its own challenges from a student demanding their services be done now to co-workers calling in sick. I've learned how to manipulate different things on MS Word, PDF, Excel and learned how to use Access. The management is not highly professional. They tell me that I have to do things and do not give explanations as to why I have to do them as well as not giving enough instructions on what to do, at least not until after the fact. There's a mixture of co-workers. Some are nice and great to work with whereas others are just unprofessional. The hardest part of the job is working with people who are just demanding things left and right. The most enjoyable parts of the job is that there are people who do show their appreciation for the services I provided them with.
