Adjunct Faculty Member (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – June 11, 2017
I have worked for JCCC three different times. First in the early 1990's as an assistant in the CE Computer Skills Department, second as an instructor in the same department during the late 1990's and now as an instructor training in the realm of management and leadership, again in the CE Department, starting last year. The students and the employees of JCCC are all excellent. A wonderful workplace culture. Very positive environment. The hardest part of the job? As an instructor plan on having other revenue streams - it can be a challenge balancing working/teaching at multiple organizations - but JCCC is great about it!
As an instructor you can attend different JCCC classes - generally for free.
Professor (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – May 31, 2017
If you want a place where you feel valued for the hard work you have done, run far far away. The administration will stop at nothing to go behind your back without offering any reasons or logical explanations for decisions. They miss deadlines and don't know what's going on half of the time. They are incredibly unprofessional and do not invest in their employees growth. The only great part about the job is the teaching and the students. It's not a wonderful place to work, but sometimes just making a difference for one student can make it worth it.
Professor (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – May 10, 2017
The work environment is excellent. It is a relaxed environment that is highly efficient, supportive and allows for individual autonomy and growth. The pay and benefits are generous including free tuition for employees and their primary family members. There are many, many ongoing educational, entertainment and cultural opportunities and the campus is continually being upgraded and improved providing a very pleasant environment. Management is top notch and the work culture easy going, friendly and supportive among management and co-workers. There was nothing difficult about this job. The most enjoyable part was interacting with students and co-works.
Excellent benefits, supportive staff and student interactions, immeasurable opportunities for additional education and recreation, a proactive enviroment focused on staff and student growth and improvement.
Adjunct Biology Instructor (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – April 23, 2017
There are a lot of resources here, but it often feels like just another face in the crowd. There are a lot of adjuncts here and there was little outreach from full-time faculty or staff to help, answer questions, or even get to know the adjuncts. The people I went to for answers were helpful, but you had to seek them out. An adjunct mentoring program would have been appreciated.
Writing Tutor (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – April 10, 2017
Learned a lot about English and the craft of writing. Allowed to work with relative independence. Still to hierarchical, and reproduces class room type relations between tutors and the writing center director.
Good learning space. Helpful experiences at the nursing home
CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT and STUDENT (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – February 26, 2017
I have CNA classes from 8:30 am until 3:00 pm every Wednesday and Thursday from January to March 10th. Wednesdays I go to Garden Terrace Nursing home. There I learned how to take care of the elderly and their needs. A typical day for me there is waking the patients up with the nurses assistant and taking them to the bathroom and making sure they have good and clean hygiene before breakfast. After breakfast I'd take them to the bathroom again if needed, then either lay them down for a nap, involve them in an activity, or take them to their rehab/physical therapy.
Management overall was good. Everyone was on the same page when it came to taking care of the patients and everyone was willing to help out if help was needed.
The hardest part was when the patients would get upset and get a little violent and try to fight.
The most enjoyable parts were talking with them while they had their meals. Getting to know them and hearing their stories is interesting and makes me feel like I know and understand them better.
Student Ambassador (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – March 26, 2016
The management delegated responsibilities based on individual strengths. It made the job very enjoyable to be working on projects that cater to my skills.
There was clear communication of what was expected from me and regular, low-pressure reviews to talk about job performance. There were many opportunities to learn new skills and try new things. I loved that work was never monotonous.
Student (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – February 1, 2016
Enjoyed the balance of going to school. Learning increased my self confidence and made me feel accomplished. I enjoyed working closely with the professors teaching the courses and other students in the class.
Order Entry Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – July 26, 2015
Very busy filled day with orders from customers who are teachers/professors putting in their orders to have a certain document or a poster printed for their class or their classroom. The hardest part of the job is when the customers couldn't find their jobs that they ordered or when their jobs came back printed the wrong way, and it was due on that day, so there was no way to fix it.
Math Tutor (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – June 8, 2015
Flexible work schedule, relaxed and professional atmosphere. Students are eager to learn. Management is very reasonable and easy to talk to. Co-workers are respectful, professional, knowledgable, and eager to help peers and students alike.
Flexible schedule, plenty of opportunities for advancement
Spanish Language Tutor (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – March 16, 2015
JCCC is a great place to work. The pay schedule is good, and my superiors have been nothing but pleasant and supportive. The HR process can take a while and I encourage knocking out all the prerequisites as soon as you can, but expect to spend about 12-14 hours with that department before your first day.
