Relaxed. 7 hrs a day.. Not too far from DC. Liberal culture. Commute is great. Good colleagues. Because it is a small school, there may not be too much opportunity for advancement, but the good thing is that they like to promote from within.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – August 26, 2018
During my time working here, I was talked down to by the management on a daily, working basis. While it was a good environment with coworkers, that was the only benefit of working for the Community College.
Adjunct Chemistry Professor (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – May 13, 2018
The people make the place. The people I worked with were wonderful. The only drawback was the lack of benefits. nothing in the way of insurance, health, dental, vision, time off, anything in the way of subsidized childcare, despite the childcare facility being right there, on site. not a family friendly environment or very balanced for family. Great if you have no one depending on you in the way of time, or benefit or salary expectations as the salary is too low to live on.
Information Specialist (Current Employee) – Frederick, MD – July 17, 2018
Very fast paced during peak months, nice work environment with amazing leaders. There is always something new to learn and questions are always encouraged. Its a tight knit community where one is not afraid to speak there mind.
Financial Aid Assistant (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – May 2, 2018
A typical day at work for a student assistant ranges from assisting fellow students and visitors, to tasks such as scanning, filing, and handling confidential paperwork. It was a very laid back place to work with kind people, however it is difficult to move from a student position to a regular hourly employee, even if you receive great feedback during your employee evaluations.
Adjunct Instructor Health Sciences (Current Employee) – Frederick, MD – April 23, 2018
I enjoyworkig at FCC. As an Adjunct Instructor I am not entitled to any benefits; however the group of people I have worked with are wonderful. You will not find any micromanagement here. My immediate Supervisors have been very supportive to changes and improvements to classroom curriclum. They are always willing to help with any issues I need their advice in.
I enjoyed my time with the bookstore. The director was a good man. I didn't care so much for some of the other ladies in the office. I always thought they had it out for me. Mostly because they kept complaining to the director about little things I did that they didn't like. I could never please them so I just ignored them and worked like I was suppose to.
Lost that job due to the government cut backs in 2010.
Wonderful, collegiate workplace that puts students first
Asst. Professor of Nursing (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – March 18, 2018
As nursing faculty I experienced a congenial, collaborative workplace environment. We had great flexibility and input in our schedule which is such a great faculty satisfied. Recognized as professionals we independently managed our courses within the course and program guidelines. We, as faculty, were encouraged to attend and participate in faculty development programs with the college providing an adequate reimbursement
Working at Frederick Community College wasn't really a job that had many ups and downs. Mainly because I was a student employee and anything that proved challenging was certainly not something I would be able to address. Though lacking in difficulty or stress, a day in the office was always booming with eager, or mostly concerned parents and students. Information was key, and sometimes you had to be prepared to answer questions that a veteran faculty member would know. Being a part of the FCC team meant that you'd always be prepared, and there would always be someone willing to help.
