Media Student Worker (Current Employee) – Kankakee, IL – May 16, 2018
Typical days work is achievable, enough to stay busy for the whole day. The most difficult part of the job is dealing with teachers who submit their jobs late and want them back the day or so after they turned them in.
Convenient, simple work, good coworkers
pay is so little, teachers sometimes not the nicest
Collaborative, collegial work environment, as is typical of a dynamic and effective college.
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Kankakee, IL – November 30, 2017
By and large, a favorable work environment, with faculty encouraged to be original and creative, and able to design their own approaches and lesson plans, so as to maximize and to maintain the highest academic curriculum possible. The hardest part of this position was the tallying up of final grades within the time frames allotted for finals week.
Large autonomy afforded to faculty in managing class loads, etc.
Was very pleasant working there. Management was great, co-workers were great. I was able to work in many various departments which gave me the skills
Clerk 1 (Former Employee) – Kankakee, IL – April 10, 2017
There was a massive lay off there because of state budget cut. Unfortunate. was a very nice place to work. cant say anything negative about it. I learned many different positions from receptionist to helping students enroll in classes but mostly for the most part worked with the HR department. I did various jobs in HR. My biggest challenge was to scan all employee files past and present and link to their personal file. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the job. The hours were great, Monday thru Friday and no weekends. I was even allowed to sometimes choose my own hours if there wasn't anything urgent that day.
Acquisitions Technician (Current Employee) – Kankakee, IL – October 24, 2016
I really enjoy my job and the people I work with. I have been fortunate to attend many classes pertaining to my job and have learned so much in the 19 months I have been with KCC. I am at a point in my life where full-time would be preferred.
Unfortunately a new director came in and the department has been downhill ever since. We're no longer the best, just very average. My overall experience is 3 stars but I would break it down as 5 stars during the time I was here initially (first half) and only 2 stars for the second half.
Job Work/Life Balance

There are many friendly faces in the facility but not many want to see you excel if you are not Caucasian or male. Many times you want to deny the feeling of sexism and masculine pigs but here you will find them prevalent in all areas of the campus.
