Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – February 23, 2016
MCC was home away from home, Friendly environment. Employees cared about each other. I was sad to leave because of other employment. Everyone encouraged each other and there was always room for growth.
MXCC was my first community-college teaching job. At the time, technology at the college was not as advanced (e.g. there were chalkboards instead of whiteboards in some of the buildings and lack of other teaching software like Quizdom). I taught at both the Middletown Connecticut and Meriden CT campuses. The Middletown campus is larger and more accessible in both location and faculty support than the Meriden campus. The student population is much smaller at the Meriden campus. I enjoyed having eyes and ears on my student's computers when I taught a DEV ED Reading class in my last semester at MXCC. I had little access to my Dept. Chair or colleagues on a daily basis but was able to make appointments as necessary to meet with them. I learned how rewarding it is to work at a community college and that set the foundation for another five years teaching English at another community college.

As the design market changes, so do the tools used to execute good graphics. The constant challenge is 1-Good design, 2- Great ideas, 3- The ability to find your market. Working with students keeps you on your toes. They always ask the hard questions. I enjoy the challenges they bring to the classroom

Shuttle Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – June 3, 2015
A typical day at work would be busy but fun, learning new things along the way. Management and co-workers are very easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job is the idle time. The most enjoyable part is the people you interact with.
Landscaper/Groundskeeper (Former Employee) – Edison N.J. – April 24, 2015
The job it self was good enough but the management loves everything done in they way they want it done. Sometimes an employee has a better method of doing things and management is not open to their employees ideas.

Scribe (Current Employee) – Bedford, MA – February 25, 2015
I work with students with disabilities. The coordinator is great, as well as the teachers that I am in contact with. The best part is the students: although they are disabled, they have the most positive outlook.

Dental Hygiene Clinic Manager (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – November 10, 2014
In all honesty this position would be a 10 to 12 hour day job. It never would stop. You worked 10-12 hours and only be compensated for 7.5 a day. The students are the best part about this job. They are helpful, kind and take instructions well. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the students of the college.
different departments were very helpful in training certain aspects of this job.
low salary, for such a unbelievable highly demanding position. no training of the position itself, constant demands of your time.
Admin (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – September 18, 2014
Originally, I thought this place was filled with opportunities to grow professionally. As time has gone on I have noticed that it is not. Though the room for growth is minimal, that isn't the major issue. Many people that are employed here have an extremely negative mindset which affects their interactions with all departments. Unless you are involved in student activities, this place will be toxic for your psyche. Condescending emails and communications from all levels of management and staff. This place is not worth it.
Great fun place to work during school vacations especially with a good crew
Maintainer (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – June 24, 2014
Every day (unless it was winter or raining) we'd start up the trucks, hitch up the trailer, load up all the tools needed for the day, then go mow/weedwack/mulch/etc until we were split up for other duties on campus and then meet up for breaks and the end of the day. I learned everything I know about landscaping and grounds work from my time at Middlesex as well as how to work effectively as a team to get tasks done on time with great results. Management consisted of four bosses but they all got along and let us do our work so the system worked from what I saw for all those years. My coworkers consisted of blue-collared workers, tradesmen, and a large crew of other twenty-something year olds who all got along like brothers for the most part. Hardest part of the job was keeping busy even after everything was done for the day and finding work for everybody to do. Most enjoyable part was working with people my own age and being able to joke around with them without anyone getting offended.
Well diversed and affordable two year institution to go to when trying to achieve a great education.
Associate of Liberal Arts & Science (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – March 13, 2014
Middlesex Community College is a great college and a great stepping stool in order to further your education for a higher degree. When I was working for various positions there, I have learned quite a few things. Being involved in various clubs, I was able to apply what I learned as a leader into my work place. For example, listening is such a skill that can be used within coworkers so that teamwork can play a role in this. Attentively listening to other coworkers can also prevent, from developing any miscommunications. The results came to that I was able to get along great with my coworkers, and achieve harmony with one another. Finally, The greatest part of working there was learning something new every day and applying that to my work so that I could advance and grow more as an employee.
the job was flexible and only included hours of work between monday-friday.
i was only able to work a certain amount of hours per semester, depending on my financial aid package.
