Lots of very immature people, very selfish culture
Human Resources (Former Employee) – Elgin, IL – September 14, 2016
I was required to work overtime a lot which was very hard for my work life balance needs.
I learned a lot about unions and a lot of different academic environments and how they worked. I had more work at this job than I ever had. That isn't a bad thing, but just a reality. The college always seems really understaffed and that doesn't seem to improve.
I had only a few co-workers that were decent to me, so many of them were backstabbing and poor communicators. I felt like there was always a target on my back. I've never dreaded going to work more than this job.
I was frequently harassed for my race (white) and it seemed to be a non issue unless people were harassed that were more ethnic. I found this to be incredibly racist.
Great benefits all around
Bad atmosphere, nothing seems to get solved, better to just work alone
