FYE PEER MENTOR (Current Employee) – Chula Vista, CA 91910 – February 6, 2018
This job is such an amazing outlet, which I believe is the best benefit of any job. My coworkers were all very motivated and inspiring individuals that helped me absorb as much good from the position as possible. The management was also phenomenal, they treated us just like family and ensured that we were always comfortable in the work-place, and this allowed all of us to perform at our highest potential.
Chief Administrative Support (Current Employee) – Santa Fe, NM – June 2, 2017
Southwestern College is a wonderful place to work. My colleagues and the student body and staff are all quality individuals. The benefits are outstanding. Not to mention it's in Santa Fe, NM, which is a terrific place to live.
Southwestern College has provided me with my education and with a better understanding of personal relationships in the workplace. I worked as a resident assistant, meaning I was a student employee of the college. I don't have too much insight into the culture and typical work day for someone who is not a student employee but I can say the people responsible of me and my job on campus are some of the most kind and warm people.
Department Chair (Former Employee) – Cincinnat – April 13, 2017
I entered the realm of higher education intent on making a difference in students' lives and hoping to prepare them for their careers. This school was less interested in the well-being and preparation of the students and more interested in money. Students were consistently taken advantage of by the admissions department and lured into programs under false pretenses. The management, which is no longer employed there, was incompetent and unreliable. In my opinion, an institution of higher learning should be held to higher standards.
Adjunct Faculty - Psychology (Current Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – April 6, 2017
This college needs happy faces planted as trees to remind all to smile. The atmosphere is depressing and it rubs off on anyone in a heartbeat. The position of the president is like a revolving door. I have nothing nice to say about this college.
Very good job where employers learn a lot of information related to school
Peer Advisor (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – January 30, 2017
A typical day at work is dealing with students all day. Typical day at the office is administering paperwork and answering phone calls to students, prospective students, and international students as well as parents. From working at the office you learn a lot of communication skills and a lot of the schools policies which is a very helpful skill. The workplace culture is a very fun one where people enjoy working there and are usually there for you when you need assistance. The hardest part of the job is helping students while trying to finish paperwork, but it is a job that is very doable if you balance your time right. Most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the joy in peoples faces when you know you helped them to a full extend.
very flexible hours, very friendly staff, good workplace.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, ca – January 26, 2017
I was a tutor for MESA while I was a student. It was wonderful helping other students with their studies and it was the best feeling when the other students finally grasped whatever concept they came to me for help with. Very flexible, work between classes and also a great place to meet people with similar career goals.
