DCCCD is family
There are many different styles of learning and many different learners at DCCCD they all fit in. Working on campus while attending is a very rewarding experience.

Very productive place to work
I learned so much working on the IT lab area for a work study. They really made sure I understood exactly to do each task and were there to help if I needed it. Very easy going atmosphere.

I am a Ph.D and feel I was never appreciated.
I taught, contributed books to the library. I have worked hard but was never been given tho opportunity to teach full time. When a new person was hired, I lost one of the classes I had been teaching.

Spent most of the day reading about building codes and what is acceptable in different areas to be passed for building codes. Most of the day everyone stayed to their self to get their work done but at the same time was a relaxed and friendly environment.

Very Slow
Too much down time and strict management! We are expected to sit and look like manikins. It would be nice to work on training or anything else. Management seems to want to always be right even when there in the wrong.

Great environment.
A great learning environment to learn and work. I enjoyed all my assignments in Audiovisual. Staff were cooperative, and so were students, our center focus. Love the department I worked in. Very supportive. My passion, love, experience and skills for service were acquired at the College. That meant a lot to me professionally. It carried me a long way.

Good Retirement
People never leave and retire from DCCCD. It is ideal and you are vested after 5 years. There is room for advancement. The district hire their own graduates too.

The best part is being able to go to school and work at the same time. I worked part-time and attended school full-time and I was able to make a living at a decent salary and complete my degree within 4.5 years.

meh
not a bad place to work at all. I am just sort of ready to get out of academics and pursue a career that actually makes some money. there is a culture in certain departments that rewards effort and other departments that just try to shut things down before exploring the true benefits.
Pros
spring break, winter break, benefits are good

I enjoy teaching and the students I've had have been interested in the subject area. The instructional material is standard for all instructors.
I instruct 2 classes of skilled health readiness courses that have lecture and lab. The students have started doing the lecture part online as it works for their work/home life, and the lab portion is done through videos and face to face instructional demonstrations and practice with the students.

I enjoy the interaction with the students, but understand their needs of wanting to do as much online as possible. I post announcements for them so that they can stay up to date with their assignments and testing.
Pros
Collaborative team of professors.
Cons
Driving distance to the college.

Great Place to Work!!
I am a firm believe in Community Colleges and Eastfield is one of the best. The Dallas County Community Colleges are very student oriented and most of the professors go out of their way to assist the students on a more person basis, with more time and personal attention being given to students than those at the university level receive.
Pros
Personal attention for students.
Cons
I was never able to obtain full time employment.

Once you were in you are there for the duration of your employment. Once you taught a course for one term you were on the list to teach that course for you life.

Professional environment
Cons
No long term full time ops
