Great environmnet to work in; outside in beautiful south Orange County.
Groundskeeper (Former Employee), Mission Viejo, CAMay 15, 2014
Saddleback College holds a special place in my heart. I had the privilege of going to school there, as well as working there. In 2011 I started working on the grounds crew in the facilities and maintenance department. I started as a complete rookie and over the course of three years became one of the best guys on the crew. My co-workers were all twenty – more... years older than and most of them had been working for the college for 25-30 years. Since most of them worked together for so many years a lot of the guys did not get along. The most challenging part for me was to make sure getting along with all the crew members was my priority. I am proud to say I did just that; on most occasions the guys come to me for assistance, when just a few years ago they looked at me as a newbie. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was the reward I received in the form of praise for the work I did in my assigned area. Hearing the faculty members say things like "this is the nicest this has ever looked" really keeps me going. Also, having a manager to look at as a mentor. This played a big role in my accomplishments at Saddleback; he always supported me in my work, as well as continuing my college education. – less

Pros: great benefits
Cons: an institurional structure
Busy with meetings, policies, advocacy, planning and coordinating services for students. The most difficult part of the job is dealing with bureaucracy. The students and the work that we do for them is motivating and fulfilling, specially when students reach their education and personal goals.

Pros: free food & swag at campus events, work with great people
Cons: not student-friendly campus other than the office
The college is not as student-friendly as it should be because staff is under the impression that the place is theirs and not the students. The However, the Office of Student Development really was the one office that demonstrated great strength and leadership in the absence of the Director. Programmed and facilitated over 100+ programs this year and – more... worked closely with students. My supervisor was incredible taking on a lot of work to ensure office efficiency. My job was something new for me and taught me so much this year. – less
