Residence Hall Manager - David Daniel Hall (Former Employee), Midland, TXApril 15, 2013
Pros: free meals at the caff, housing included, utilities paid, free high-speed internet/wifi//cable, no commute
Cons: stressful environment, living at work, no pets, management doesn't always "have our backs"
= A typical day...
begins with checking on the front desk worker to see what is new and ensure they are clear on what needs to be done. Then checking e-mail and voice-mail to make a list of managerial tasks for our day. Before 5pm check the "on-call schedule" to see whom is on-call that evening (on-call lasts from 5pm - 8am), then prepare accordingly. – more... You should always be reachable in the event of an emergency, on-call or not.

On-call: in the event that a worker doesn't show, an emergency happens (fire, flood, fighting, or blood), or contraband is suspected in the building you must be available to handle the situation and summon another manager to assist you.

= What I learned...
How to handle fast-paced situations calmly and how to dynamically arrange and rearrange directives, paperwork, and methods to fit the situation. Conflict management.

= Management...
Managers can make bad choices too; it is better to uphold company policy than to be in the favor of one's boss. Know the regulations inside and out so a thoroughly informed decision can be made when needed.

= Co-workers...
Even senior employees can be mistaken. Avoid gossip as a rule, office politics is a dangerous pastime.

= The hardest part of the job...
Living at work. We're contractually required to live in the provided apartment in our designated dorm... it is very difficult to "just be at home". Managers are not allowed pets,of any kind and only immediate family or spouses can live with you, which can get very lonely.

= The most enjoyable part of the job...
The room for improvement/innovation. The process may be slow, but if you can clearly show the benefit to the students/department of an "improvement" management is usually supportive. – less

BIOLOGY INSTRUCTOR (Current Employee), Midland, TexasNovember 2, 2012
Pros: teaching students
Cons: part-time job
College atmosphere bring out the motivator in me. Good to know that I've helped push young minds into getting an education or making adult decisions deciding against a formal college education. The world is full of learning experiences and I don't want students to get trapped into college based programs they don't feel inspired to do for a long time.

Receptionist (Former Employee), Midland, TXOctober 17, 2012
I loved working here, dealing with people is what I love the most. I answered phones all day along with setting up appointments for five counselor. My co-workers and I worked as a team so nobody took in more than they could handle.

Math Tutor and Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Midland, TXMay 15, 2012
As a working student at Midland College the job was flexible around student schedules. The main duty of the job was to assist in teaching other students college algebra, whether in the math lab or as a teaching assistant to a requesting professor. The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job was helping the students understand the course work. Course – more... material had to be explained to each student in a different way to help them understand the mathematical operations they were carrying out. – less
