Fun and Fast Paced
Student Assistant (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJune 11, 2018
Working as a student assistant really helps in the long run. You are able to provide incoming students with necessary information to enroll in college. The hardest part was when school enrollment starts and its two and three hour wait times. The most enjoyable part was working along side my fellow colleagues.
Pros
Free Food/ Access to certain information
Cons
fast-paced and stressful

Very supportive staff
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJune 4, 2018
Everyone wants the students to succeed and provide the help for them to do so. Deans have always been very supportive of the adjunct professors. Low enrollment so adjuncts do not get many classes to teach. Takes 5 or more years to get hired permanently on the average. Lower pay than private colleges. Usually have classes to teach or at least one or two.
Pros
Supportive management
Cons
Very few permanent jobs.

Constant turnover, poor vision and a politically motivated leadership environment. Organization has lost sight of mission and purpose while ignoring the role of the institution.

Professor of HVACR (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLApril 25, 2018
The upper management needs to return their focus back to the customer, the student. if it wasn't for the teachers, instructors and professors no one would ever enroll.
Pros

The upper management don't know what goes on in the trenches and continue to make blind decisions

Library Assistant & Professor Assistant (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLApril 3, 2018
Working in the Library and Learning Resource Center was actually a lot of fun. I enjoyed interacting with students and helping with computer or classwork related questions. The hardest part of the job was sometimes not being able to assist a student with questions outside of my knowledge.

Train Wreck
Academic Tutor (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMarch 26, 2018
For an educational institution, they do not value intelligence, ethics, or quality. All hiring is done on a who you know basis and no one is given equal opportunity to access jobs. Unfortunately, this means that the students are missing out because a large part of the staff and faculty are mediocre at best. I cannot wait to get out of here. The students themselves are the only good part about the job.
