Educational Assistant/ Internship (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMay 9, 2017
a typical day at work was helping and assist the teacher in the classroom with what ever he/she needed help with. I learned how to work hands-on with the students some were more advance than others and those that needed more help and understanding the assignment that what I would do mostly, management was always intact the work culture was variety the hardest part of the job would be trying to keep them settle in the lunchroom or on the playground the most enjoyable part of the job is when the students call my name.

Fun place to work with great pay for part timers!
Academy Instructor & Associate Degree Instructor (Former Employee) –  Oak Creek, WIApril 18, 2017
MATC was a great place to work with plenty of flexible hours and very good pay. Supervisors that allowed the staff to handle their classes and not interject just because they're "the boss".
Great experience and great crews!

Great school, great teachers, great program. I am so glad I decided to go to school here instead of somewhere else. The teachers really care about whether or not you advance to the next stage.

Great work environment
Public Safety Assistant (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 8, 2017
This is an unusual job, unlike others in the industry. Like traditional operations groups, we keep important, revenue-critical systems up and running despite hurricanes, bandwidth outages, and configuration problems. Unlike traditional operations groups, we also have full access to and authority to fix, extend, and scale the code to keep it working and harden it against all the vagaries of the Internet. We hire people from both systems and software backgrounds. Strong candidates will have experience with both.

No advancement - good place to get feet wet
Educational Assistant (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIOctober 31, 2016
Do not expect any form of support from upper management. Very retaliatory behaviors displayed across the campus. No room for advancement as MATC does not follow it's own hiring procedures. No performance based raises, which leads many to become complacent in their work Terrible response time by most MATC staff and faculty. Communication among departments is poor. Very low morale campus wide.
Over all, not a place to stay for life, unless you are ok with never advancing and learning the play the games that they play.
it is a good place to get your feet wet in higher education and decide if it is a good path for you. Pay and benefits are great while you're trying to figure things out. Does offer the ability to network with outside agencies with possibilities of making connections there.
Pros
pay, benefits, separate vacation and sick time banks
Cons
communication, lack of support from upper management, retaliatory behavior by management, supervisors get mad when you ask to use your vacation time

Working with the students that are interested in learning was the most rewarding part of the job. Benefits are good. Management is them vs. us. Work environment has few team players unless you are in the click.
