Very depressing and stressful work environment where the employees seem to be the lowest on the list of importance.
Nightly Custodian (Former Employee), Mesa, AZAugust 1, 2013
Pros: you get a paycheck
Cons: small check, no benefits, no medical, late hours, over work employees, discrimination, inconsideration for employee safety unless they are at risk and so on.
Working as a night custodian at Mesa Community College I learned that you get little respect and are treated very poorly. It was also nearly impossible to "move up" in the custodial section of the school especially because, when I was employed at least, about four years ago they stopped hiring for "permanent positions" and most employees were forced – more... to work in a "temporary position" for years and therefore were denied the benefits of the "permanents" because there was no room for progress. The "permanents" seemed to do no wrong, even if they let black mold grow in their trash can, which actually happened, and were allowed to keep their jobs when the "temps" could just leave a paperclip and be fired. It appears to be run ineffectively, especially for the employees and show plenty of discrimination. The custodial supervisors/managers seemed to put the employees in constant fear of termination regardless of their work causing a very unhappy and stressed atmosphere for their workers. I personally, had an "accident" while on the clock, and lost my unborn child. When I confronted my supervisor and asked what action to take I was informed to go back to work and get checked out on my next day off, which was not for a few more days. I had another instance where I became ill at work and it was necessary for me to go home, however, none of my supervisors/bosses were on site to relieve me when there should have been. I also had my job threatened by one of my supervisors because I preferred using a smaller, easier to manage, and more effective vacuum. I am, overall, very displeased with This employer with not only how I personally was treated, but how my fellow employees were treated as well and would not recommend this job for anyone unless it was a last resort. – less

Nursing Instructor (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 20, 2012
Pros: free classes! i became a recognized painter!
Cons: i can't think of any
Great place to work Wonderful teamwork and supportive co-workers. Learning experiences were frequently offered to me.
I was a nurse instructor and I loved this job. The management and co- workers could not have been more united and more encouraging of their staff.
I enjoyed teaching students in a variety of hospitals and the schools had always arranged – more... the clinical experiences well in advance.
The hardest part of the job is when you have a student who is not up to academic standards. We all work hard to help these students but it is very hard when they fail. Fortunately this is rare because the admittance process is well adhered to.
The most enjoyable part of the job? Graduation day!
I loved working here and if my husband and I had not relocated so far away I would never have left. – less
