Diverse community with great positive individuals.
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – February 15, 2017
The Special Resource center serves the disability and special needs community. Diversity is always enjoyed here daily. Fast- paced at all times, with new, lost, returning, and curious students constantly entering the center. Phone etiquette is a must. Overcoming the urge to become frustrated is a great attribute, many students with disabilities are frustrated and only need some guidance. Interacting with deaf students is something the Special Resource Center is very proud of. American Sign Language and Spanish were of great advantage when helping students and other individuals over the phone and in-person.

Student (Current Employee) – Torrance, CA – December 19, 2016
Considering it's a school and I was a student, I basically chose my own schedule. I've learned many things while attending El Camino College. The staff is amazing, and the people that I have met since attending has taught me many things. I think the hardest part of being a student was time management as far as studying goes. The more classes the harder it is to manage time. One of the main factors that is very vital to passing a course and failing is your willingness to succeed, and there are people there that could help you. You only need to know where to look.
The most enjoyable part of being a student is learning new things. Not just from in class but out of it too. I've met so many people and some of them has had a huge impact in my life.
Library Attendant (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – July 13, 2016
Everyone's very friendly, and the school is work oriented and professional. Very calm and quiet place to work not very exciting so if that's what you're looking for this is not the job for you. Things were pretty easy to learn not very hard. Mostly sitting minimal standing depending on where you are in the library.

The staff and fellow co-workers were all very helpful and encourgaing of each other. The environment was a great place to have my first job I highly recommend other students working on campus part time to gain some real life work experience and earn some money on the side of school.

The time spent here at Lendlease working with the EL Camino TEAM has been more than I can ever ask. Since I began my career here at Lendlease everyone has been more than welcoming and helping me learn everyday.
Supplemental Instruction Coach (Current Employee) – Compton, CA – December 22, 2015
The people are great and we all work towards the same goal, which is education. I wake in the morning and go to class like it was my own. I think what I could do for my session after class during class. This job has taught me better communication skills and patience.
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – December 9, 2015
I would report to the Shop Teacher and usually I would cut sheet metal, and metal slabs on a band saw or using the oxy-acetylene torch for thicker pieces of metal. I learned how to work efficiently and use my time productively. She was an excellent mentor, and allowed me to face challenges I had never faced before with proper guidance. The hardest part was when she tried to teach me to weld which most students have to take classes on, and I struggled with immensely. She obviously was an expert. I found it really enjoyable when she'd give me mini projects to work on that required fabrication, for example when we moved into a new shop she asked me to fabricate a simple jig to attach a arc welder to a shop cart which was a lot of fun.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – August 26, 2015
My co-workers at El Camino became my second family. I enjoyed coming to work and working together to assist students with resources that they are in need of. The environment was comfortable, we laughed and created great memories while doing the job we love; helping others.
