Continuing Education Assistant & Student Registrar (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – May 27, 2014
This was a job of many tasks and one day was not like the last. There was a lot of student interaction and involvement with instructors which made this job very interesting.
You assisted instructors in assembling course materials and maintained the class rosters. I gained a knowledge of the course materials and was able to talk to the prospective students about the course requirements and subject matter.
Nothing too difficult here if you are able to prioritize tasks and be mindful of detail.
Student Life Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – July 31, 2017
While I loved working at TCC (& would have preferred to stay at this job), the school has been experiencing MANY negative changes due to the inability to keep many employees including VPs, deans, etc... to other higher ed institutions and other state agencies. As a result, a massive part of the institutional history was lost, thereby creating problems that could have easily been solved/handled if the employees were treated with greater care.
A very good job because your also at work when your at school
Peer Advocate (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – July 25, 2017
A very easy and laid back position that connects you to everyone else on campus such as faculty and students alike. I would definitely recommend if you were attending Tacoma Community College even though its only a year long position.
Dedicated Tutor (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – July 7, 2017
Working as a Dedicated Tutor at Tacoma Community College is very rewarding because you get to see students grow and become more confident with writing skills. Tacoma Community College is a College that offers great support for students and staff alike, which is comforting. The hardest part of the job is every quarter brings in new classes and new students. This can be difficult because you create a bond with the students, so new faces in each quarter is an adjustment, yet it is exciting too.
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 28, 2017
In this place, I would meet different students with different culture. I learn how to talk with them to design layout, brochure based on their ideas. Also, I knew school events which I could joined to open my network with professor and other classmates.
Student Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 5, 2017
TCC was a diverse work place where they celebrated one another. Discrimination was very low. Added bonus was unlimited free coffee in the break room. Free dress on Friday's. Overall good place to work.
Head Coach (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 4, 2017
Great potential here with location and opportunities. Management issues in the past led to some dysfunction and personnel challenges, but demographics and community need is there for the place to be special.
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 4, 2017
A typical day at work, for me is relaxing, fun, and unpredictable. Working here at Tacoma Community College is a very good place to work, because they are very flexible and work great with class schedules.
Student President, President (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – May 10, 2017
My job was a great learning experience, and life building exercise. There was a problem during my time there. My manager started the day she did my interview, so that made my job a little difficult because she wasn't fully aware of what my job entailed. Another problem was the TCC had just elected a new president and introduced new software for not only the staff but the students as well. It was just too much going on and not enough training.
Instructor CE Contact Hours (Former Employee) – Gig Harbor, WA – May 1, 2017
I was hired as a Continuing Education Instructor at Tacoma Community College. I taught my Reiki class, which has been approved by the California Board of Nursing for Continuing Education Contact Hours. All kinds of people took the class, including lay persons interested in improving their own health or that of a loved one, spouses of traumatized military veterans, spouses of public service employees, massage therapists as well as Registered Nurses and other health care field personnel.
The full time teachers were not friendly or helpful, and I was required to rearrange large desks, multiple chairs, and set up and remove my own massage tables for the classes. No storage was offered, and my classroom was moved without notice. It was stressful for me.
Help Desk Technician (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – April 3, 2017
Tacoma Community College offered a really nice friendly environment for work. I've worked here on campus and enjoyed every minute at work. My supervisors and co-workers are very friendly and supportive. We helped each other to improve our service at TCC>
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – February 19, 2017
It was a job you had to be able to multitask with. You needed to be able to answer phones, talk to security over the radio, give students IDs and Parking passes, assist people who were looking for lost items and assist those who came in looking for certain information.
Assistant Head Liberal Arts Tutor (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – January 27, 2017
This is an amazing place to work. There is an excellent training program and the workplace environment is pleasant. The schedule is flexible and most often is chosen by the employee. I was able to gain further credentials as a tutor through an in house training program.
Productive and comfortable work area. Helpful staff
Customer service in taking admissions (Former Employee) – Gig Harbor, WA – June 9, 2016
Fun atmosphere to work in. Staff went out of their way to help each other. When the busy time of a new quarter came around, there was staff and help to get the students enrolled and settled into their routine.
Help Desk Specialist (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – May 31, 2016
After 6 months I was a key holder and a typical day started by prepping store next I would interact with team members in different scenerios and continue the day by making sure everyone was happy and setting goals. I learned that I was a team leader. Management taught me how to schedule, hire, resolve conflicts, make deposits, how to receive shipping. Co-workers were always pleasant and willing to do their best overall and willing to learn new tasks if needed. The hardest of course is having to let go of a member. The most enjoyable of the job was having a beautiful store and reaching goals and making customers happy.
