Instructional Assistant (Former Employee), Grass Valley, CaliforniaMay 28, 2014
Pros: great place, flexible hours, fun job.
Cons: having to deal with people who don't want to learn.
I worked for Sierra College as a classroom assistant in the, (Computer Integrated Electronics) Mechatronics department, for four years, this offered a great opportunity to expand my knowledge of the subject, and also help others get closer to achieving their goals, and it also gave me a good start with a fairly flexible job, so that I could get used – more... to working, officially a typical day was 3-4 hours long, but unofficially a day could, if you really liked helping people and didn't really care about the pay, 6-10 hours, not that the longer hours were actually required, they were just logical in order for you to do the job correctly. I learned a lot about jobs, in general, and money management working for Sierra College, I probably had the best manager in the world above me, and the experience would have been completely different with someone else. Your co-workers at least for me were teachers, they were generally nice people, although some of them could have done the job better than they did. As strange as it may sound the hardest part of the job was filling out the time card, I didn't really do it for the money, so it didn't matter, but they will fire you if you miss too many time sheet submissions. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people to help them to learn electronics, and help them learn. – less

Office Assistant II Counseling (Former Employee), Counseling office at the Nevada County CampusMay 25, 2012
I was able to interact with students and counselors on a daily basis. I learned about the rules and regulations of attending community college. I was taught by excellent mentors that I will continue to stay in contact with. I enjoyed working with all of the other employees in that office. The hardest part of this position was dealing with upset students, – more... especially if there was no solution to their problem. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with others and answering questions. – less
