Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – leardtown Md – July 18, 2018
A typical day at work is when 50 to 100 students come in the student resource center needing guidance on starting school or help with touting. On a avage day it would be faxing that needed to be done several phone calls incoming and outgoing. Learned a lot of different office skills and planning organizational skills. Diverted culture, nothing hard about the job once you received proper training. Most important making sure the clients we happy and everything was taken care of.

People are friendly and very helpful. Outside of the commute, the benefits and work environment are fantastic. It also allows you the opportunity to further your education and make you more marketable.
Building and Grounds Technician (Former Employee) – LaPlata – April 5, 2018
clean and maintain campus grounds, classrooms and offices on daily basis. Assist with setting up and taking down equipment for special events. Had the responsibility of going off campus to another facility to clean and maintain also. Drive company vehicle.
Freedom to teach your own way, but lots of guidance is available when you need it
Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) – La Plata, MD – December 15, 2017
I loved being in charge of my own classroom and having the freedom to teach in my own way. This also gave me the opportunity to experience when to use leniency and when to draw the line in a fair way to all students. We had a few issues with the software and hardware at times, but I was able to learn how well I can make lemonade out of lemons.
Relaxed Atmosphere/Everyone Knows Their Responsibilities
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – La Plata, MD – November 27, 2017
Work at your own pace unless there is a priority project. Day goes by fast because work is steady but not overwhelming. Everyone is very friendly and always willing to help if needed. The team is great!
Relaxed work place, with nice people, just low pay
Student Office Assistant (Current Employee) – La Plata, MD – November 2, 2017
This is not a job with much advancement. It is a good job for any students on campus looking for a job on campus to help pay for school. I would recommend this job to students who desire a career in the fitness realm.
MCET hires professional water and wastewater operators to teach on a part time basis. This is a great way to stay up to date in the field. So if you are in the water and wastewater treatment field and looking to teach part time, MCET would be a good choice to teach in Maryland and Virginia.
Certified Personal Trainer (Current Employee) – Leonardtown, MD – August 23, 2017
A great institution, but it is very hard to establish effective communication with coworkers. Working in one area: cooperation and job environment is great. However, in general, departments do not coordinate well with each other,
Accounting Assistant (Current Employee) – La Plata,MD – July 31, 2017
Check Bursar's Office e-mail account,help students,parents and employers with any tuition account questions. Collect all necessary paper work for account protections and invoice verification's. Process tuition payments. On the downside not much room for growth. Reviews are rare due to the busy schedules of supervisors. Great benefits and time-off.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – La Plata, MD – July 31, 2017
There is no sense of community here. It's a cut throat environment. Nobody wants to help the students here. I've seen 7 people come and go in the past 7 months. I really want to get out of this toxic work place.
If you desire to take classes you don't have to pay the tuition
people are hateful and you don't get paid for the heavy workload
An enjoyable environment with engaged faculty and students.
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – La Plata, MD – July 28, 2017
As a college campus, this environment was much more enjoyable and rewarding than a high school campus. The majority of the students were mature enough to work hard and understand the consequences if they did not.
My supervisors and peers were professional and supportive. I never was made to feel embarrassed with any questions I had regarding the curriculum, procedures, or technology.
The most difficult part of the job was adapting my syllabus whenever a new edition of the book came out.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the students and their excitement level for each class which, in turn, fueled me each night.
Executive Director of Marketing & Communications (Current Employee) – La Plata, MD – July 18, 2017
Really great group of people but lacks in some vision areas from senior leadership. Some of the technology is extremely antiquated which makes it hard to position as a progressive organization for job recruiting. Because the college takes on a bit of a small town mentality, a vast majority of the employees have been here for a considerable period of time which certainly makes it feel like family. There is some wonderful flexibility in work scheduling, though I can only speak for that as it pertains to the division I've worked for. They really need to look at improving cell and wifi service on the La Plata campus. It's nearly impossible to make a call on campus because of the service. Overall a really great place and great people, just a bit stuck in its ways. I'd be curious if it ends up affecting the college's ability to hire or retain those who have larger aspirations.

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Prince Frederick, MD – July 7, 2017
I truly enjoyed working at and for the College of Southern Maryland. From the administrative staff that I proudly served to the faculty - everyone was so warm and friendly. I assisted and then eventually oversaw the campus scheduling department. Daily routines included, but were not limited to, bookkeeping, filing and sending business and payment contracts, and scheduling campus courses and activities. Every morning I delivered faculty mail and restocked the staff room. My coworkers were always more than willing to lend a helping hand and that made all the difference. Management felt more like family, and were not only "managers", but leaders as well. I can honestly say that there were no difficult parts of this job.
