Less managers and More tutors (waste of funding)
Tutor (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – October 9, 2018
HCC need to get really honest with itself and figure out where the students will benefit the most and use its funding to hire more tutors or focus on keeping the existing ones to help the students. After all, this is a tutoring center.
They have cut tutors hours plus making us travel to different tutoring centers each semester. Their reason is that of funding plus they add this is because of students. Really!!!! Okay!
Honestly, what HCC tutoring centers do not need is these many full-time managers.
This is a big waste of money and resources because what they do throughout of year is very minimal. And I tell you why
Once the schedules are up, management just sits around to check who clocks-in and out and if people are bringing food to the lab, etc. And they have recipients to give them all sorts of help.
These managers are not knowledgeable to help out in any subjects the centers are offering. So much pressure is on the tutors.
I have to add I am not against having managers but not this many.
