Tutor (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – February 15, 2019
Worked as a tutor, the school is very flexible for students. You only get paid per hour. there are no benefits. The process is a little unorganized and departments do not communicate with each other as they should
Student worker receptionist (Current Employee) – Glendale, AZ – January 30, 2019
Overall, the work environment is friendly, flexible, and easy to work with. We are able to make up lost hours lost, however we are only allowed certain hours, meaning it is not recommended to work over time if we max out the number of hours we are allowed to work.
Glendale Community College High Tech Center Computer Labs has a unique 1on1 student to student program.
Proctor (Former Employee) – Glendale, AZ – January 7, 2019
As an Instructional Associate, then a Floor Coordinator working in the multicultural, customer service oriented environment of the Glendale Community College High Tech Center Computer Labs it was expected that one needs to be effective customer liaisons with students, be courteous, prompt and reliable. Always able to report problems to a Floor Coordinator and there was always security. Thoroughly enjoyed learning about various personalities, who could offer some unique challenges while being mindful to encouraging and instilling calm confidence. Got much satisfaction introducing students to the technology, addressing questions related to applications, computer operating systems, software and hardware in the high tech center and in assisting students to review and understand their syllabuses and coursework. At the same time practicing my own course work. As a Proctor work was very structured. Required to: Uphold test confidentiality, security and decorum. Be observant for transgressive activity, at the same time being mindful of basic courtesies and customer service in an environment fraught with the tensions of testing anxiety. Enforce and adhere to policies and procedures. Create nightly incident reports, maintain records, report problems to whomever needed the input and secure materials and closing the testing lab at the end of the day. The culture was one of nurturing, mutual support and respect, and so one could explore their horizons. And after work one could explore any new or unfamiliar software applications.
Student 2 student type of position. Many pros addressed above.
Anatomy & Physiology Tutor (Current Employee) – Glendale, CA – October 21, 2018
I tutor anatomy and physiology students which is very rewarding knowing you once took these classes and now you can help other students. One thing I don't like about this job is that the rate at which they pay you monthly. It takes a while for you to get your paycheck. One of the good things about working at your school is that they work with your class hours and you don't have to go off campus to work.
Adjunct Reading Instructor (Current Employee) – Glendale, CA – September 10, 2018
The admin, faculty/staff are very nice and helpful. It's a very welcoming environment but the students are rather weak and need many accommodations. However, they really do want to work hard and succeed.
Admissions and Records staff (Current Employee) – Enrollment Center – September 8, 2018
I learned a lot about using school enrollment program because everything is done on the computer. Not only that, I have been considered as the best customer service agant because of the positive vibes I give to people that are interested about my French accent which for some cases made them have a good day apparently (that is what they said). My teamwork has been improved and I am proud of that.
Enrollment Clerk (Former Employee) – Glendale, AZ – September 7, 2018
Typically you assist students to enroll in classes recommended by their academic advisors. the hardest part is that the system sometimes is slow and that will appear error while students are waiting to get everything done. in despite of it, there is a culture of support and help when there is a difficulty with the enrollment system. I want to say that the supervisors are the best and very supportive to their staff. Also, they have flexible scheduling for those who are students.
Student Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – August 21, 2018
no further information, everything was very fast paced but at the same time very organized. management was awesome, wish I could work more hours and instead of being parttime would like to see full time employment
Math Tutor (Former Employee) – Glendale, AZ – August 2, 2018
Working as a tutor for the Math and Computer Science department at Glendale Community College was one of the best jobs I've ever had. As students required help, we would sit with them and talk through problems, never giving answers, but usually helping them to find the answers on their own. On the rare occasion a given problem was beyond my skills, there was always another tutor on duty who had taken whatever class the student was in and could help. There was a very minor amount of stress in the management department, as while I was working there, the department was going through an extended period of reorganization; however, my bosses did a good job keeping most of that away from the tutors. I genuinely loved sharing my knowledge with the students there, and lived for the moments of enlightenment, when understanding would suddenly light up someone's face.
Contracts need to be renewed twice a year, and there was always a small amount of scheduling conflict in the first week of each period.
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – July 16, 2018
It was part of my clinical practicum. I was supposed to make my observations and teach demo lessons assigned either by me or by my mentor. Overall, it was a great joy and experience to be a part of a Community College.
Student -worker (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – July 13, 2018
I like to work for Glendale Community College, it's like a second home for me . The professors are very friendly and they always willing to help their student-workers. I made a lot of friends during last 3 years at GCC . Generally, my goal is to avoid interruptions so that I can do “deep work” focusing intently on a single problem at a time.
Each week I try to pick just one or two bigger projects to work on.It’s useful to have two things on the go so that if I get stuck on one I can work on something else while my brain works on problem in the background. their

GCC was a stepping stone for staying connected with students and norms changing within the culture. Going to work for GCC was a great experience and making connections with others professionally was great.
