Coordinator (Former Employee), Main Campus – April 19, 2014
Pros: working with students in a learning environment was great
Cons: working for dramatic staff members, management turned the other cheek, unprofessional behavior at the senior level, hostile environment.
The work itself was very rewarding because you worked directly with students and faculty. The downside was that the staff and management of this particular group was unfair and unprofessional in making sure that all employees were comfortable in learning and doing their job with the knowledge and tools needed to perform everyday task. There was an obvious – more... separatism between certain management and staff that caused the work environment to be hostile and inappropriate in one department. This department has had a large turnover rate due to the situation and may or may not have been resolved by upper management. – less
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee), Raleigh, NC – April 14, 2014
I worked in the registrars office on the main campus of the college and really enjoyed working with all the professionals there. I mainly worked in the file room, so i was working with all confidential records. I really loved it because i am a very organized person and i loved organizing the files everyday.
This is a nice place to work. The coordinator and director are always available to answer your questions and open to suggestions.The bad side is that working hours depend on student enrollment, so your paycheck depend on that too.

Instructor of Somatic Psychology (Former Employee), Raleigh, NC USA – April 8, 2013
Pros: coworkers, department head, and the autonomy to provide a learning experience tailored to the needs of that specific class
Cons: pay scale needed updating
I was involved in the integration component of the massage therapy program at the college. With my support and challenge, students took theoretical knowledge applied it to themselves and then to their clients. It was one of their last classes before graduation into the field. The class was one of their final attempts to use their knowledge with clients – more... and promote their abilities to other medical practitioners. They presented a final project to their classmates and the head of the program. I immensely enjoyed working with the students and my coworkers. The department head was supportive, skilled, and thoughtful. I had freedom to pick the textbook and design the course to promote integration of the prior classes. Each class provided a different challenge. Therefore, classes had to be tailored to suit the needs of the classes while maintaining a core curriculum - as in all classes. – less
