Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 19, 2012
When I would first get there I would review my duties and see what was needed to be done first. I would see what was more important to get it done first. I would file answer phones any labels or new folders I would do. Anything that the boss needed for me to get done for her I would assist her.
Peer Tutor (Former Employee) – Porterville, CA – September 13, 2017
This is not a regularly scheduled job. You set your own schedule and students will pick who will tutor them based on the available schedules. Supervisors are friendly but strict for your own good as well as the students. Good work is followed with praise from professors and students alike which tends to lead to more work opportunities.
Instructor, Industrial Maintenance & Motor Control (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 8, 2017
It is the best place I have worked at and I have worked at a couple. What makes it better than the rest? The people I work with, my extended family. My father always told me to get a career you love and it won't be a job, how true that is.
Student Receptionist (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – September 21, 2015
Start out the day with saying hello to everyone. Answer calls and then transfer. Check the mail then take them upstairs and deliver in proper mail slots. Filing was done when necessary. I learned to smile more. Management was great. My coworkers were so nice and always supportive. The hardest part of the job was sometimes getting the wrong kind of people in the halls. The most enjoyable was being able to work at my own pace.
Co workers very helpful and make working there a pleasure.
Swap Meet Worker (Former Employee) – Porterville, CA – March 20, 2014
A typical day at work, is taking the $1 gate fee per person. I worked with another person in the booth. I learned that the customers sometimes didn't always accept change of nickels and dimes. My co workers were a pleasure to work with, and made the work day a lot of fun.
the weather hot in the summer, cold in the winter.
Overworked and very stressful with no appreciation
classified (Former Employee) – Ridgecrest – October 27, 2012
Employees that have worked here for many years are getting axed in order to save money...and new hires come in to replace at half the pay and double the workload. Employees are expected to perform impossible feats at the lowest paid higher educational inst institution in Calif. And they put up with it due to bad job market in area. Employees are constantly expected to work out of job duties and make decisions that management will later scrutinize for..although there is no one else around to decide. Employees live in fear of losing their jobs daily and manageman abuses that fact . Judgemental management that plays favorites. Management takes huge pay increases while letting go hard working faculty and classified who have the direct effect on students. Have no consideration for lives of employees or customers.
