Supervisor of Student Housing (Current Employee) – Kansas – June 4, 2017
Pay kept me at this job as long as I was there. My immediate supervisor was fantastic, but anyone else that I worked with was not welcoming and thought of me and my position as something not needed to better the community for our service population.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – May 8, 2017
A typical day at work includes interacting with students and peers. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching students learn and thrive. The hardest part of the job is when student's don't due the work and you must share with them that they will not pass the class. The workplace culture is uplifting, relaxed and pleasant.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – April 24, 2017
Change is the current culture.Kansas State budget crisis impacted the colleges ability to provide many resources. 2016 fiscal deficit resulting in return essentially half of the budget. I loved serving KCKCC
Technical Assistant (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – January 25, 2017
The people are great to with. There is flexibility in work schedule. I enjoy helping the students. I enjoy helping the instructors. You get an amble amount of vacation, personal, merit, and sick leave. Along with the breaks that the students are out of on breaks and all the holidays which are more than the average work place because the college closes for all federal holidays along with the normal holidays. Holidays such as MLK Day and Presidents Day.
Adult Education Instructor (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – October 25, 2016
I worked at KCKCC for several months. My boss was hostile and harassed me constantly. This person insulted my intelligence and humiliated me in front of my coworkers. I reported these incidents to the supervisor with no results. I was not allowed to perform the job I was hired to do and instead assigned irrelevant tasks to complete. KCKCC lacks structure and leadership.
An well serving institution providing promise and opportunity to its service area.
Admin. Asst. to Division Dean (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – July 12, 2016
My present position presents many challenges on a moment by moment basis with new responsibilities and projects every day. Any task from processing personnel leave forms to composing meeting minutes are among the smaller tasks. The responsibilities vary from serving on implementation teams for new programs and processes to assisting instructors, students, co-workers and the Dean of the Division with any requests, projects and routine work beside my own regular duties. The most gratifying and enjoyable part of the job is seeing satisfaction in response to my assistance, and helping others, especially students, meet their objectives with any help I can give. The most difficult part of the job is the challenge of executing my job when there is lack of clear communication or lack of any communication necessary to complete certain projects or meet expectations.
Some pros would be benefits in the way of leave time and interaction with some truly well meaning, hard-working people.
Cons would be the dwindling human respect, and lack of appreciation of anyone below the administrative leadership, fostering an increasingly oppressive workplace for many dedicated staff.
Volleyball assistant and Athletic Apparel Retail (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – January 11, 2016
A normal day at work was full of great experiences in a fun, yet professional, environment. I learned a lot about organization and how to work well under pressure. Management was amazing and made us feel like a family. My co-workers were great and became great friends. Great experience with KCKCC.
Individual Tutor (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – September 1, 2015
They are very goal oriented and you have to know what you are doing. I loved helping tutor fellow students and to know that I was helping change their lives and mindsets. although monetarily it did not make me happy, knowing that I helped someone was more than I could ask for.
Secretary/Student Worker (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – June 5, 2014
I began as a part-time summer worker entering jobs into a database and posting flyers on bulletin boards. Days could be a bit boring at times, but I knew if I stuck it out, I could learn a few things. When the secretary had surgery and was gone for 5 weeks, I came on full-time and began taking on some of her job characteristics.
I was asked to come back during the school year (I'm a full time student) and work as a work-study student. I still entered jobs into the database and posted flyers, but I started getting more responsibility. My supervisor realized with my years of work experience, she could ask me to do more and did.
The secretary retired in May, so I am back this summer, but in her position, working full time, and getting ready to help transition the office to another department when my supervisor retires.
I am hoping to stay on with that department while I finish my last two semesters in college as an intern.
My supervisors are wonderful ladies to work with and have learned a lot from both. The people that come in our office vary from students to community members looking for resume help, or to work on the computers, or just someone to talk to. And that's what I'm here for.
The hardest part of this job is the boredom. But I find things to do and have plenty of time while in class to work on my homework. The most enjoyable part is the people I work with and the ones that come in to see me every day. I feel respected and wanted here and that has become very important.
