Very Stressful Environment, Hostile at times
Assistant Carpenter (Former Employee) – Elmira, NY – March 22, 2018
If you like being overworked and under paid, this is the place for you. There is a board of "Trustees", much like congress of America, that make foolish decisions. The trustees do not see this as an institution of teaching, but more like a business. Budget cut backs, and teachers having to double up on work loads, due to a desire to pay only the bare minimum to 90% of the staff. While others make more than they should for there mediocre efforts.
One of the last meetings I had with Management and my fellow tradesmen, HVAC Techs, The Carpenters, Locksmith, Electricians, etc...We were asked to please stay employed at the college and work as a team to fulfill work orders with no reward.
I will not mention names, but...upper management told us, Tradesmen,..."there is no money for raises for anyone. If we wanted a raise to go find another job".
You get a Paid Christmas Vacation
More than likely you will not like the Decission making abilities, or lack there of, from the House of Congress
