Intern (Former Employee), Hopkinsville, KY – May 8, 2014
Not only was I a student at this school and office intern, but I had the enormous pleasure of making friends with everyone I encountered. I would recommend HCC to any student or personnel looking for employment.
The college was really a good place to work getting to meet all types of students.
Communications Operator (Former Employee), Hopkinsville, KY – October 27, 2013
Pros: got to take classes for free
Cons: working outside in winters.
A typical day at work is talking to everyone, and maybe tell someone something to help them along in their day. That everyday is not the same. I had realy good co-workers if I needed some help they were always there. Really to me there were not any hard days. Was being able to talk to all the different people.

While having many ups and downs during my enrollment at the campus, my professors were all very interested in my advancement. They challenged me as a perused my degree and have done nothing but support me and in efforts.

Pros: get fed alot when parties or luncheons are held there.
Cons: as a student worker i do not have access to healthcare.
An absolutely exciting and learning experience. I learn new things every day. I help students enroll at HCC, fill out their FAFSA, loans, schedules, applications, help them retrieve their transcripts, and many more things. I tend to go above and beyond and initiate this to the other employees. I am treated as seniority, put into management situations, – more... looked up to, trusted, and well liked. I am a people person and get along with all ages, sizes, colors, and attitudes. Another part of the job is sorting the incoming mail and faxes. My boss is a wonderful woman who is very likable and doesn't hold herself above others. I enjoy this job because I love to help people and make their day a little brighter I do this and reap the rewards when eager prospective students become students! – less
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Hopkinsville, KY – July 10, 2013
A typical day of work for me was pretty repetitive but enjoyable. I learned a lot about basic clerical duties. I mainly scanned and indexed papers. The management was very clear and structured without being too strict or harsh. Most of my coworkers were young students like me so we had a lot in common. The hardest part of the job was the repetitiveness; – more... I like being able to do new things. But at least I knew what I was doing. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was being able to do my work without anyone hounding me and stuff. I was self motivated and could do things at my own pace. – less
Adjunct Professor, Education Dept (Current Employee), Hopkinsville, KY – July 10, 2013
Pros: learning from co-workers, students, and administration
Cons: lack of benefits
I enjoy teaching and using my administration abilites. On a typical day in the classroom, I enjoy watching the "aha" moments and helping students with disabilities achieve to their maximum potential. I have learned different modalities of teaching from my coworkers as well as from continuing education hours.
I have used my administrative abilities – more... by developing a math lab and ensuring all Common Core Math Standards were being reinforced in the lab by developing lesson plans using authentic assessment to make sure the students were able to complete the tasks that were assigned to them by myself as well as their teacher. I also created a curriculum map for ACSI standards as well as Common Core Standards.
No matter what happened, I always did what was asked of me by parents, administration, and by other teachers. The whole focus was not about me but about the organization and ensuring the goals and vision was met. – less
Writing Center Assistant (Former Employee), Hopkinsville KY 42240 – May 16, 2013
A typical day at work was helping other students reach their academic goals. While working at the college, I learned never to give up and quit. It was extremely important to manage one's time. It is true that all people come from different backgrounds, so one learns how to over look the differences. This is how each of us can get along with other people. – more... The hardest part of the job was not being able to reach a struggling student reach his or her goals. The most enjoyable part of the job was being needed. It was extremely rewarding to have the knowledge to share with others, to watch him or her succeed, and to gain job satisfaction. – less
Good experience while getting the education thats needed,how convenient.
Office Assistant (Current Employee), Hopkinsville, KY – July 12, 2012
Pros: convenient-paid to learn and educate, on slow days get homework done.
Cons: minum. wage, slow days that i don't have homework, distance from home.
Getting the education and having hands-on training is like a double dose of learning. I get to do projects for my teacher making flyers in plublisher or writing business letters in Microsoft Office and get paid to put it in action. The manager don't hover over me nor judge me by my resume but through the proof of my actions. My boss and the professional – more... co-workers are my inspiration, they encourage me and teacher me the right techniques in order to help me build a better work ethic in the office world. I love it! – less
