Information Technology Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – December 27, 2018
I learned a lot under this internship. Server Deployments, PXE deployments, Zero Client Configurations, Network Closet Inventory, using the Ticket System, and helping staff and students with their needs. It was worth the time invested to work here.
I will say it is an ok place to work, the people can be either the best or worst part depending on which position you are in.
Bookstore Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Mattoon, IL – November 14, 2018
The workplace culture varies depending on who you talk to, there are those who are very nice and hard workers, then there are those who could care less. The hardest part of the job would have to be rush period. The most enjoyable part would have to be whenever someones birthday would come along, no one is forgotten, and the pot-luck food is great. The wort part of the job is definitely the pay, it is lackluster at best no matter if you are full or part time. The more you earn the less the raises are, if you know anything about inflation that is.
Business/Accounting Tutor (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – May 21, 2018
Lake Land was a positive place to be from the moment you walked into any door, or any building on campus. There is help around every corner. There are great teams in place in all divisions of faculty. The structure of the college is well thought out and I recommend considering employment to anyone interested. Give Lake Land a chance. You'll be glad you did.
Secure employment opportunities only when full time
Lab Supervisor (Current Employee) – Mattoon, IL – March 10, 2018
I love my job but there is no room for advancement when in a part time position. Workplace culture varies depending on the department; some areas can be stressful, others more conducive to a positive work environment.
Work Study Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – October 31, 2017
I gained a wonderful mentor while attending community college, that pushed me not only as a worker but a student. Always felt included among the higher up staff. It was enjoyable to be a part of meeting where I knew we were truly making a difference.
Divisional Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – October 24, 2017
Lake Land College is a great place to work where you meet so many people and learn so much about different cultures and values. Because it is an educational environment, you also have international students. These students are eager to learn as well as share about what things are like where they come from. I really enjoyed everyone, students and employees, there.
I feel this job is best for someone needing to get their foot in the door and gain some experience before moving on. This would also be a great job for the person with more than one income in the household.
Great people and great benefits
Low end of pay scale for requirements, not much room for advancement.
Radio Personality (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – October 19, 2017
My experience here was a good one, because I learned how to use a sound board. I was a radio personality for my school and I thought being one of the voice of the school radio was pretty cool. The work culture was tied into class and made things more hands on and interesting that way.
Student Dental Hygienist (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – August 9, 2017
Lake Land College is a a great school to attend for the dental hygiene program. As a Lake Land student I gained amazing experience in our clinic. We also got to go out in the community and work with people and that was really rewarding.
Work Study Student (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – May 15, 2017
As a student at Lake Land College, being a work study allowed me to balance my work with my school activities and my extracurricular activities. The managers are all respectable, and if you find a position that pertains to your major, you also learn as you work as well and get a taste of the ideal job you are working towards. It is an experience I would recommend to anyone.
Computer Service Technician (Current Employee) – Mattoon, IL – April 30, 2017
I think I was lucky to have a good supervisor. The customers were always good to me. On the negative side, the new branding policy prevents getting new customers for the department I work at. Overall this is a great place to work and the work environment is top notch.
