Adjunct Faculty/Writing Center Staff (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – September 13, 2017
There has been a lot of difficulty in retaining qualified instructors as a result of the shake-up in senior administration, e.g., securing a new college president. This toxic environment is tricky to work in.
Hours are spent in a very nice office with open hours for tutoring students in introductory biology courses. The STEM center of FCC is very formidable to working with all educational levels and age groups.
I love this place.... Through my mentors/professors I was able to obtain an outstanding job on helping others learn the Medical Assistant field. I not only get to help teach but I also get to learn new things as the program advances. The professors that I work with are superb!! There is never a dull day, lecture or lab. The students are all awesome and I enjoy interacting with them every day that I work at the College. There is no hard part of the job however the ability to have patience to demonstrate and lecture those who need more understanding then can get a little trying at times. The medical assistant field is growing quite rapid and it is imperative that every student learns the ins and outs of the field so it will make a great impression on the college as well as greatness for success.
Everyone seemed to get along and care about their co-workers.
PROGRAM MANAGER (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD 21702 – October 2, 2013
The first 17 years were productive and I enjoyed the work, the people and students. Learned a lot from my supervisor and eventually advanced from Secretary I to Program Manager. Changes in leadership made the work environment stressful and no one on campus seemed to embrace the new culture.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Frederick, Maryland – May 5, 2013
I teach 2nd year college students "Stress Management" through the Allied Health and Wellness Department. My department chair is Jan Sholes. I enjoy the diversity that I face everyday with my students. I established a repore with all my students on the first day of class when I was able to remember all of their names. The students and I felt a connection and the connection set a precedence from the first day of class. The hardest part of my job is remaining consistent in my expectations of homework, class participation and attendance. I experienced my first teaching evaluation which allowed me little stress. I recieved high marks in all areas. I was asked to come back Fall 2013 and teach again.
Game Room Attendant (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – May 4, 2013
On a typical day, I would walk around and make sure my duty station was clean as well as making sure the students in the game room were following the rules. I learned many things while there like time management skills and leadership skills. The management there was excellent and I worked alone on my shift and my coworkers were always on time. The hardest part of my job was cleaning at the end of the night. I enjoied having the responsibility of being in charge of all the students in the game room as well as being on the computer most of the time.
Support Associate (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – August 6, 2012
Working at Frederick Community College was an excellent chance to join a thriving institution of learning that embraces innovation and growth. In my recent role as support associate at FCC I have had the distinct opportunity to broaden my scope of expertise while introducing creative organizational solutions. During my time with FCC, my primary duty was to provide administrative support to the Director of Adult Basic Education as well as all other offices within the Continuing Education Department. Additionally my hands on involvement in various projects brought me a great sense of accomplishment on a daily basis.
Work-Study (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – June 13, 2012
FCC is such a fun-loving place to work. Everyone is a friend, not just a co-worker. Dealing with students on a daily basis, of different backgrounds, cultures, races, and ethnicities can be challenging, but the staff learns to work together.
Instructional Support Assistant (Current Employee) – frederick,maryland – May 24, 2012
A typical day working at Frederick Community college would be coming into the office making coffee and going to mail room, as well as checking voice mails and receiving incoming phone calls. Afterward I would normally have a stack of paperwork that needed to either be filed or data entries that needed to be logged. I served as an assistant so I would do what was assigned to me. I enjoyed working with my other employees!
free lunch sometimes, great experience, great people
Adjunct (Current Employee) – Frederick, MD – May 1, 2012
Typical day at work includes delivery of lessons and instruction on labs, enhancing the learning environment, creating a welcoming and atmosphere fostering exploration. I enjoy the sense of adventure that each semester brings with new students and the unique compilation of attributes that each bring to the class. The most difficult part of the job is that there is not enough of it. I miss the lab and the hands on exploration, myself, while I am assisting others on their journeys of discovery, I yearn for that of my own.
