Productive and fun workplace with Ping Pong tables
Student Engagement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAMay 24, 2018
Typically greeted guests, planned events, and helped them with inquiries. Being positive and having good teamwork is key!

Managers always tried to be there for us when possible and were hands on, great people.

Sometimes work could get a bit boring if working front or info desk, but this just means more time to work on school work, if you need it!
Pros
Work around your schedule if you're a student.
Cons
It's a student job. The only benefits you'll get is those already afforded to you as a student.

Student Assistant- Access Services (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAMarch 27, 2018
Good job for students who don't have many bills to pay. Easy work once you learn the system and how things work, it's just repetitive tasks. No pay raises or incentives for hard workers and you'll have to pick up the slack for lazy workers.

Disfunctional at the executive leadership level
Associate Vice President of Facilities (Former Employee) –  Gwinnett County, GAMay 24, 2018
The culture was tainted and very political with too many clicks. Too much gossip and rumor control. Executive leadership out of touch with the daily operating pulse of the institution. Too many decisions were made for departments from information gathered from outside sources.
Hard work and dedication is not appreciated. It is more about how well you fit in with the right click.
Cons
Poor leaders at the executive level

Nice people, bad pay and advancement
Admissions Processor (Current Employee) –  Gwinnett County, GAAugust 6, 2018
GGC is a nice place to work but with the low starting pay rate and little to no advancement available, I don't recommend starting a career there. Most other schools start out with higher pay.

Productive and fun, yet disciplined
Staff (Current Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GANovember 26, 2018
The job is fun but it is hard work. Officiating games, planning programming, creating leagues and things of that nature. Also chaperoning events and leading a team of officials as well as players. At times there are rowdy students and it can get difficult dealing with tempers, but understanding how to deescalate solves those moments.

the collage is ok for 1st generation of college
Student Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAApril 16, 2018
The hard part of the job was pressure from the majority race. Some lazy employees not only made hard the work environment by gossiping and parting also, tried to destroy hardworking people reputations. Despite of Managements' acknowledgements about all those situations there is no action to solve or equal opportunities.
Pros
study balance
Cons

Student Affairs (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GASeptember 27, 2018
I advise that you work with a goal in mind and after 3-5 years move on to another company once goals are accomplished.Networking is key and be sure to familiarize yourself with various departments across campus.

Housekeeper/Custodian (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAMay 28, 2018
I loved my job for 3 years before a new company took over with a lack of management skills. I was one of the best employees that worked there. I did more than what was required as far as cleaning in detail and making sure everything got done.
Pros
1 hr break
Cons
lack of management skills

Decent Job
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Gwinnett County, GAFebruary 19, 2018
Needs more support from upper management.

College caters more to providing low costs to students instead of supporting employees.

Very low technology use, long hours, employees are exhausted.
Pros
decent coworkers
Cons
long days

Not recommended to work for
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAMarch 31, 2015
It has a beautiful campus, but professionally is not good. In addition, the pay is very low. Since it is an "open access" institution, most of the students expect their teachers to give them the grade. The students in general put a minimum effort to learn. In the upper level courses, for example, some of them turn papers that are not even at the high school level.

The work is highly demanding: teaching four classes with three preparations (or sometimes two) every semester, in addition to participate both in discipline and college-wide committees, plus mentoring (an average of 30 students), and work closely with students on individual projects (including panels and paper presentations at conferences). There is nothing wrong with this huge amount of work; the problem is that the economic compensation (pay) is very law. A high school teacher makes more than any of the teachers in the social sciences at this college (Georgia Gwinnett College).
Pros
Beautiful campus
Cons
Very law compensation for the amount of work. Bad management; students (in general) not committed;

Very clean, safe, and fast paced
Utility 1 (Current Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAJanuary 26, 2014
A typical day at work usually consists of alot of cleaning. Not only for us utility workers, but also for the employees cooking and serving the food. You also have to maintain a safe workplace along with being clean. Everyone does their part at work and even when circumstances do not permit us to do so, one of the team members easily picks up the slack. Everyone at work usually gets along just fine, making the work seem easier than it actually is. The only negative would be the variety of things demanded on a daily basis, but that could also be a positive because it challenges us to think of a creative way in which to get the job done.
Pros
Free food and great coworkers
Cons
Compensation for the amount of work
