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.
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.
TUTOR & CLERICAL (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 11, 2014
The work environment is fun, professional, and semi-laid back. My co-workers were diverse, great people. We were aloud to work together, independently, and we were not micro-managed. Our ideas were regarded and we received a lot of praise from the business professors. The hardest part of the job is staying on one task when you have the ability to bounce around and help people. The most enjoyable part is seeing students that you tutored graduate, or all the thanks and appreciate comments you receive.

Supplemental Instructor (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 3, 2014
Working as a supplemental instructor gave me the choice of being a teacher after college. Supplemental Instructor (SI) really made my experience at TCC the best. Mae Stephenson who is the most personable supervisor who really cares about her team was a great pleasure to work with. Working with the SI group and peers was easily the best decision I made while at TCC, where I got the opportunity to build on the foundation of my academic career, work with a diverse and extremely entertaining group of people whom I am happy to say that I still talk and hang out with regularly today. The SI program isn't just a social gathering though but a fantastic building block and experience.
training seminars can be a little brutal, not a full time job

Custodian (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 9, 2012
At the first of our shift we would all meet in the main custodial building and wait untill everyone would arrive for there shifts and the ones who didn't show up for work we would work together as team mates and get all the work done. We would get directed into teams of two or more people and go off to our building and work the night aways making sure all the things were done for the next day. A few things I learned woring at TCC was deatail cleaning with things I would have necer noticed or thought about cleaning that I use every day in my own home. I also learned as much communication among other team mates no matter if its just the little things makes a difference, makes your shift go smoother and overall helps not only yourself but teamates at the end of the day. The most enjoyable part of my day was when we do our final walk through of the buiding to make sure everything was locked, secured, and done right. That was my favorite part because I got to see My work, my team mates work and knowing that we did a good job made me feel better leaving at the end of our shift.
made alot of new friends, and learned new skills
long shifts, graveyard, and shortness of co-workers almost daily

There is always something to be excited about and look forward to. Conversating with teachers and informing fellow students are a daily task I find comforting.
