Math Tutor (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – September 10, 2018
As a Math Tutor at Community Collage, I learned a lot helping other students. It was a very challenging and satisfying position. I recommend all students to work as a tutor because the knowledge you gain from teaching is more meaningful compared to the knowledge you get from traditional methods of learning.
Writing Tutor (Former Employee) – Gettysburg, PA – August 7, 2018
I have worked in several different fields and although I am only 22, I do know when I am appreciated and taken care of at a job. I felt so appreciated and never felt like I was under-compensated for the work I was doing. I was a writing tutor, so you'd have to love reading and writing to do this job and, of course, it was a lot of reading, but I couldn't have asked for a better supervisor or environment to have spent almost two years in employment. I highly recommend.
Flexible hours, employee appreciation
Must have degree to move up, but that is very reasonable
Love the staff and students Feel like I teach valuable lessons

Love teaching the students ,feel like we are left out with the changes in the process. Our years of work dose not count when hiring a position with someone who is new and you have worked 17 years.. No job id perfect
Support the cause of this institution 100% but be prepared to work hard
Foundation Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – July 23, 2018
Loved my time at HACC but the longer I was there, the more hours I was working. The benefits and colleagues are wonderful. I miss it very much but could no longer put in the number of hours required to do my job.
Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) – Gettysburg, PA – June 30, 2018
I had some wonderful students who were adults or from foreign countries who really applied themselves to gain an associates degree. However, most of the young people's skills were so weak that they could not write and had little incentive to learn to write or to be effective speakers. As is often the case in such situations, the adjunct gets blamed when the students don't learn.
I liked the diversity, however, and would have soldiered on if management hadn't been so willing to think student ratings equate to the quality of the classroom experience. Instead of challenging the students, I felt I had to placate them.

great place to work I would highly recommend all staff and support staff are great beautiful campus with a great education paired with great energy. The learning environment is above and beyond any I have ever been involved with The staff and administration WANT students to succeed and they do everything they can to collaborate and make that goal a reality It is also very financially friendly for students and parents.
Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) – Gettysburg, PA – April 3, 2018
I apparently lost my adjunct teaching jobs at HACC because the students didn't like me. It was kind of a shame because I like a lot of them, especially the people who were given the opportunity to go to Community College after the 2008-9 deep recession.
Unfortunately, many of the younger students did not want to study or learn and found my insistence that they do so annoying.
Management weighted student evaluations over everything else that I achieved for the organization, such as writing an article in support of one of their outreach programs and teaching students with a range of challenges including acute autism.

Harrisburg Area Community College is great to work for as non-teaching staff. Benefits and environment are satisfactory. There are multiple campuses in nearby cities so there are options for relocation.
Math and Writing Tutor (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – March 30, 2018
The tutor job was definitely very productive. It enhanced my communication skills as I would work with individuals on whether it be solving problems in Mathematics, or Physics, etc. I also tutored in Writing, which I think eventually made me a better writer. I would proofread people's articles and essays and try to find errors and help them make it better by changing words and sentences around. Also, occasionally, I would work with another tutor in a team which gave me an opportunity to learn from them as well.
