The management was good, the program was well-run, and the benefits (a scholarship) were definitely worth the volunteer hours put in. I learned how to become a better leader and how to work with other students and peer leaders. The hardest part of the job was grasping the concept that I had to volunteer and take an extra class without receiving credit for it, but I did get my classes paid for. The most enjoyable part were the perks: first to apply for classes, classes paid for
paid for classes
a lot of pressure for a student fresh out of high school
Assistant Director (Former Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – June 11, 2016
TCC was a typical state run school system. Management was supportive as long as you stayed in their norm. The hardest part of the job was get out of the box and due something new to increase production and lower cost.
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – October 14, 2016
Alot of hands on figure it out work. All of my fellow workers were the true definition of a "team" and we all assisted each other. The only thing I would have liked to see more is a defined training in the main computer system (WorkDay) verse just winging it and hoping you did what you needed to correctly.
I don't have one or two specific things; I loved TCC
Tallahassee community college is a very productive work place. Everybody that I worked with on daily bases had a grinders mentality. I would start my day with a 6am individual skill workout with our student athletes. Once the school day started I would have to do class checks to make sure all of our student athletes were attending class and sitting in the front row. In between classes I would have individual academic meeting with our student athletes to discuss up coming assignments or test. Once I finished with student athletes I would go meet with the academic advisor to discuss there grades in the class. While I was the academic liaison we had a 98% graduation rate.Then I would head back to the office to prepare the practice plan and get ready for practice. Usually practice would last about 2 hours and 30 minutes. Once practice was over I would go back to the office to prepare for thew following day. After I finish with preparation for the following day my day was over. I learned a large amount of knowledge from my former boss about how to organize and lead a college program. The hardest part of the job would have to be the hours. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be the interaction with co workers and my student athletes.
A busy place to work with students.. I have learn to that in this line of work you have to multitask and i love working with the students. Management is great hands on very helpful. my co workers are great i felt like family.. The most enjoyable part was planning the events.
Tallahassee Community College is a great school and and great company to work for.
Instructor (Current Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – March 30, 2016
A typical day at work involves coming into the classroom preparing to give lesson for that day. I've leaned that working with students your own age can be challenging. Being a team player with my co-worker can be very helpful and fun to work around. the hardest part of the job is trying to plan many things with very little time. The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with the students, knowing that the day won't be the same each day.
I need to help family with finances by finding employment
College Student (Current Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – July 1, 2012
Most of my jobs were to work in inclement weather, holidays, and some weekends. I drove over the road in the Southeast with MBM for Chick-Fil-A restaurants. I was part of management with Barbers dairy which I supervised 12 employees. The hardest part of all the jobs were loading and unloading the trucks besides no touch freight. The most enjoyable times I had working with driving jobs was the independence of being alone, being responsible, and as always drive with all the safety precautions because of the crazy drivers who do not need a driver's license.
Productive and fun workplace with very flexible hours
Information Technology / Intern (Current Employee) – Tallahassee,Fla – June 26, 2012
A typical day at work is productive and fun. There is a lot I have learned working here. The management is great to get along with, as well as my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is not having enough hours, While most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know everyone.
A typical day at work includes assisting customers, organizing data and files, manually totaling all drawer totals and the end of the day. Ive learned to access personal student information and operate in a system using keys that navigate through the computer system. The management is INCREDIBLE the supervisor checks on employees daily and teaches employees new and different ways to figure out the answers to student questions. Co-workers are friendly and helpful to those that are confused with any navigations and problems within the system. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to assist students with information regarding their account and anything witholding their registration into school.
