Fun but little chance for advancement
Student Activities Coordinator (Current Employee) – Winter Haven – November 12, 2012
Polk State College is an excellent employer if you're looking for fun and friendly co-workers, a flexible schedule and a positive environment. The staff and faculty are excellent and polite, they make going to work a lot of fun. There is a lot of personal freedom, you are not micro-managed but you are expected to perform.
The only stressful time is during registration, this happens twice every academic semester -- towards the beginning and the end. It can be VERY overwhelming.
The students are generally well disciplined but they can be challenging, especially those who do not necessarily understand why they are in college to begin with.
If you want to learn how to work in an independent environment with a lot of rigor then this is the employer for you.
flexible schedule, independence, friendliness, understanding
pay, advancement opportunities
