Instructor (Former Employee) – Kinston, NC – November 3, 2016
A typical day at work required massive paperwork. This allowed me to perfect my organizational skills by creating a system that was adopted by my colleagues. The management was proficient and my coworkers were the best in the world. The hardest part of the job was the paperwork but I thoroughly enjoyed exercising my creativity.
I loved my job working in the Business, Industry and Emerging Technologies Unit. My co-workers were exceptional. I enjoyed doing the budgets for the 35 departments. I learned how to do many accounting practices. I was responsible for ordering through our automatic order system. I also kept invoices balanced. I became proficient in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. I enjoyed helping all the students and instructors I dealt with on a daily basis. Management was very fair and easy to work with. The job was fast-paced and there were very few boring moments.
Great co-workers who appreciated what I did.
Sometimes I was too busy to take a break, but it was not that important to me.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping other students understand material, there really wasn't a hard part to the job. My boss was a funny and nice woman. I learned how to maintain several activities at once and operate office machinery.

College student in Criminal Justice Technology (Current Employee) – Kinston, NC – December 15, 2013
I have been to another college before Lenoir and I was not pleased with this school with acceptance of other school credit classes. Having to take other classes lower than what I had already completed and scored high marks on with another college. I was not happy with the non-communication between my adviser and myself at any given point of time. She would not even respond back to numerous emails and phone call messages to help me with my graduation packet or assessment needed for graduation. I had to retrieve this information over her head with head registrar lady in order to achieve this required element for graduating students.
That I finaly completed their requirments to achieve my degree from another college.
That I can move on to another school to achieve an higher degree.
I enjoyed working for the biotech and biology department of my school. The pay and hours were very low compared to a full time job, but the experience and knowledge I gained as an assistant was very beneficial.
the experience and balance of work and family life
Supportive staff and administrative personnel. Appropriate curriculum material. Pleasant physical environment.
Adult Basic Education (ABE) Instructor (part-time) (Former Employee) – Snow Hill, NC – April 7, 2015
A typical day at work included reviewing emails, telephone messages, and prioritizing and accomplishing administrative and other daily tasks. I experienced a great deal of growth in multitasking in a fast-paced institutional environment. A priority for management was best practices in a constantly evolving, culturally diverse student body and staff. Co-workers were cooperative and responsive in sharing ideas and materials in both formal and informal gatherings. The most challenging part of the job was maintaining regular attendance among adults who had to cope with many personal challenges outside of the educational setting. The most rewarding part of the job was the opportunity to be a small part of the students' personal successes and academic achievements.
Excellent working relationships
Some negative behavior by students and visitors common to an open academic campus.

I enjoyed working at Lenoir Community College because I helped people with their different studies and educational needs. They were grateful for my help and spread the word about how I was helpful and patient.
I enjoyed working here cause i was able to be on my own and get to walk around the campus making sure that every thing was secure and that no one else was in any of the buildings at the end of the day.
