Student Worker (Current Employee) – School of Trades and Technology – May 8, 2015
This job was an excellent place to network in the field of sustainable technologies/green energy and provided a very adaptable and flexible schedule which was critical while I was a student. I only wish I had been given more responsibility such as access to the group calendar so I could schedule appointments or access to the online data base which can look up more detailed information for students with questions about classes and details not included in the catalog so I could have helped the regular staff with more responsibilities.

Temporary Staff (Current Employee) – Santa Fe, NM – February 11, 2013
I really like SFCC but I find that in order to get a job, you need to become part of the temporary pool and then apply for an internal posting. When you do, there are a ton of applicants for that same job. That really cuts your chances. The hardest part of the job is keeping busy. I am a temp that does not do much at all
free food here and there, two weeks off for christmas
drama, only hires temps so they dont have to give benefits
I was returning to school at age 45 to learn more about microcomputers and information technology. I felt lucky to get the job and I was grateful to my supervisor for hiring me. It was just 15 hours a week which allowed me time to for school which was the idea. The money was provided by Federal Financial Aid, not a private company of any sort. That worked for me. My most important task was taking reams of paper to offices on the Santa Fe College campus. I got to use a golf cart to do that which I enjoyed immensely. After that was through though I had to return to the office which was not as much fun. I was criticized for my phone voice. It was too low said my critics. I was a 45 year old male how is my voice supposed to sound? I and another work/study student were called into the office manager's office twice, once each semester with this complaint. I got angry about it and quit. Stupid thing. I should have just let it slide. I could not get another job after leaving. It was with News and Journalism and I had a background in writing and was the editor of my high school newspaper. I liked my co-workers and I learned about multi-line telephones, printers and putting letters up on outside bulletin boards. Actually the instruction on printers and phone lines was a little foggy and the first go through on the job the boss spoke rather quickly which actually boosted my ego when I realized I understood everything she said and was retaining it. I had not worked in a long, long time so the pay was great although it was just minimum wage whichmore... then was $5.15. I wished it could be raised and I wished I could get promotions but work/study doesn't work that way.less
SFC was just named the most top rated college in the US. It goes without saying that the atmosphere is family like. A typical day is usually very busy but more than not, fulfilling. The students come in all age groups and it seems everyone who works there is interested in ensuring that the students succeed. The people are friendly and helpful. There really isn't a day that I worked there that I felt it was more than I could handle. I was able to create a wondering working atmosphere for myself and the coordinators around me. I had the best Director and manager I ever worked for at SFC.
Family like atmosphere
Healthcare was a bit expensive for insuring a whole family
This place is a good job, but I am 62 years old, and is a hard-work to me
Custodian (Former Employee) – Santa Fe, NM – August 14, 2014
A typical day at work in the Santa Fe Community College is a hard day of work, but when I seen clean all College, I feel that all my job be worth the trouble.I learned that there are many different cultures and different races in a work. The management make a good job. My co-workers was a good team, all working in unison. The hardest part of the job is to clean the blackboards. The most enjoyable part of the job is that all workers have the rights to study six credits free.
All employees can study.
The cons is that all employees have problems with their arms because of clean the blackboards.
My worked as a caregiver included many challenges and balancing life and work was not very succesful.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Gainesville, FL – July 25, 2012
A typical work at included working with disabled individuals by assisted them with their daily basic needs. I learned patients and to humble myself always because my clients often had bad days as a result, lots of patients on my part was required. I was not looking in any management position because I was in school pursuing my bachelor's degree in social work, and the agency probably was not going to bring me in the office. The hardest part of the job included working weekends and holidays, which was difficult to balance work and life as I would like to.
the agency worked around my school schedule as it changes every semester.
working weekends and holidays, which made it difficult to spend quality time with my family.
Office Assistant, Office of Student Development (Former Employee) – Santa Fe, NM – June 30, 2012
I took Student ID picture of new student and returning student almost every day. Sometimes i got big project like typing up surveys pr organize the office. Organized campus social, cultural and student support events and field trips. Created flyers and posters to promote events. Purchased supplies, decorated event area. I learn how to treat people when their upset about something or when their even happy. My management was good they were always there for me and treat me with respect. Co-Workers were good. The hardest part of the job was when my boss gave me a bunch jobs at once while i was doing student id's on the first day of school. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people everyday.
Student Worker (Former Employee) – Santa Fe, NM – January 20, 2013
The people there are so nice and they know when you have a problem they try their very best to help you. I've learned a lot about data entry, and taking care of the students there. The management know how to correct you if you are doing something wrong in a nice way, and the coworkers are just fantastic people. The hardest part of the job is when graduation comes. When everyone has to have their documents all filed and set. The Most enjoyable part of the job is that the people are laid back, and support each other.
flexible hours, free cake every month for birthdays, cook outs that the students and faculty can participate in
there isn't health care if you are a student worker.
Santa Fe Community College is a great school. The classes are small which makes it easy to access professors for one on one attention. I worked for the Adult Education program assisting students with preparing for the GED, CPT, and TABE tests.
