What a drain...
District Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJanuary 17, 2019
MCC is a terrible place to work. It can't figure out what it wants to do and they keep changing leaders. There is no advancement opportunities from within, and there's a caste system where the teachers are on top (even though they get shafted, too) and staffers are on the bottom.
Pros
Not many
Cons
Welcome back to high school politics

Productive
Instructional Assistant (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NENovember 23, 2018
Repetitive duties in a work day. I enjoyed assisting students. Culture was stressful. The managers were very nice. I wanted to be hired on permanently; however, I could not because a relative also worked there. I learned to have patience with the students and their obstacles. Some application systems were weak and IT support did not performs necessary duties to support the students' resource center.
Pros
Managers
Cons
Security personnel were very rude.

I Love Working Here!
Central Stores Technician (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NENovember 13, 2018
Made many friends and was able to go to school for free! Pretty much all holidays off, paid. During inclement weather classes are usually called off and staff as well. Most companies I have worked for want you to risk life and limb to get to work when the city is shut down!

If You are Not a Minion
Tutor/Volunteer (Former Employee) –  Lees Summit, MOOctober 5, 2018
The best thing about being a tutor here is the downtime, when there is some. I don't recommend it if you don't want to work for a director (who thinks she has clout) that is better suited as a Kindergarten teacher. She forgets that she works for a college, and micromanages when she doesn't need to. The job is a no-brainer. Either the student reads and does the preliminary work to write the paper and interacts with you during session or doesn't. The director is intimidated by those who are comfortable with the job and know what they are doing because she is still trying to figure it out. It is either that or she is working hard at making an easy job challenging because she feels the need to be important. I think the latter. Another thing to add, is that there isn't any tutor support for when a professor sides with the student, who doesn't do the work, but blames the tutor who helped them. Additionally, there are some professors who have been telling the director how they want their students to work and make cookie cutter assignments, and want the tutor to fill-out (grade) a preliminary paper with a fill-in guide. So, before you know it, you are a grader and not a tutor. They presumably have what they call training at the beginning of each semester, but it’s not training it’s a cheerleading session of lousy pitches, basically a snooze fest. The best thing is to observe, and if you are observant (particularly with mediocre students) you will learn how to guide them and encourage them to express “whatever” they want in the most literate manner possible.
Overall, the place was
  more... a nice place to work and functional before, very relaxing, but the entire school has been going downhill and fast.  less
Pros
Downtime
Cons
Micromanaging Director

Student Worker (Current Employee) –  Independence, MOJune 1, 2018
Being a student worker, you make only minimum wage, limited hours. Good job for working at the college, while attending, it makes life a little easier with commuting and what not.

Campus Police Officer (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOApril 19, 2018
The community is that a close knit group. The shifts are basic police shifts, there is mobile patrol, along with walking patrol efforts. The ability to work with those with knowledge is good, and the chance to enjoy the campus and people is there.
Pros
shifts are 8 hours and ease at taking days off when needed.
Cons
shortage of qualified people applying to fill open slots

Clinicals
Emergency Medical Technician Clinical's (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOMarch 5, 2018

Great place to work and advance
Student Services Specialist (Former Employee) –  KansasMarch 4, 2018
MCC believes in promoting from within. Most supervisors understand the need for growth and do not reel intimidated if one is applying for a job in another department, although they prefer you tell them first. They are very professional, yet laid back. They take what they do seriously and if one ever lands a job there, stay there. Your chance will come. Don't be impatient. If you work hard, they will advance you.
Pros
Support hard workers
Cons
Time Off
