Development and Database Assistant (Former Employee) – Poughkeepsie – February 2, 2018
Very unprofessional. I did not enjoy working for DCC. There was favoritism and the mission was ignored. I felt as if I worked for a popularity contest. The current Director of the Foundation is spiteful and vindictive.
Student Aid (Former Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – December 20, 2017
Very easy job, relaxed, get homework done, flexible schedules, minimum wage pay, great experience, get good references, no paid time off, but can always call out with almost no notice since you are just help
Instructor (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – October 30, 2017
The office staff in the continuing education department are very supportive and cooperative. I find the management very efficient and courteous. The hardest part of the job is navigating the campus which is built on a hill. The most enjoyable part of the job is the actual teaching of the students.
Adjunct Lecturer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 28, 2017
It was a challenging posiiton for me. Training students to use various lab equipment was to say, an experience. It showed me how much I take for granted what I have been doing my career life. It was a fun situation dealing with different age groups and personalities
HSE Instructor/Coordinator (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – June 24, 2017
I love the connection that it provides to the community but there is not much room for advancement based on the department that we work in. In the community services department as instructors, we can only work 25 hours a week. We do receive benefits and it is hard to get promotions to the credit side of the DCC.
Warehouse Crew Worker (Former Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY 12603 – June 11, 2017
A typical day working at Dutchess meant coming in and getting down to business. If your a fast worker there is a lot of down time until more work came your way ( atleast my position). I learned how to put data into the computer for storage purposes, as well as all the locations in which to retrieve and place items around the campus. Management were always fun and chilled, as long as you were getting the work complete at a efficient time. The work place was diverse and open. The most enjoyable part about my job was just being around co-workers helping out, they were like a family in a sense and took please being there to lend a helping hand.
Student tutor in Anatomy and Physiology (Former Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – February 2, 2017
It can be a fun place to work at. As a tutor, I would wait until the student showed up then tutor them in anatomy and physiology. If the student didn't show up for the appointment, I made note of it and let my supervisor know. I had a great time with the students I tutored and they appreciated me for helping them understand the material. Loved my supervisor, she was the best. All in all I had a great experience as a tutor at Dutchess.
High School Equivalency Instructor (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – October 25, 2016
I began working at DCC as a TA for HSE classes and eventually progressed to being an instructor. The student population can be challenging at times, but overall, most are good kids. Employer support varies based on funding, and at times, it is difficult to get needed materials. Job expectations are unrealistic at times given the realities of our student population.
