Technical Assistant (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, NY – February 1, 2018
This is by far one of the most toxic and stressful work environments that I have ever encountered. The "good old boys" culture stems from years of deals built on political corruption and trickles down from the top through the trenches. The state benefits are incredible, and the entry level staff is incredible to work with if you can see past the rampant sexism and nepotism. In spite of Union contracts you are regularly expected to work excessive hours outside of contract. This workplace is a culture where upper level employees methodically tear you down in an effort to make themselves look better.

Working for Joe and Eileen in the Veteran's Office at NCCC was fantastic. The school in general felt like we were promoting really helping student progress with their goals. The student oriented atmosphere really rang through every time interoffice communication was necessary.
Work-Study Intern-Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Sanborn, NY – September 13, 2017
I worked for Niagara County Community College for 2 years (2007-2010). I had the most enjoyable time working in the office. The work environment was very professional and actually a breath of fresh air after working in fast food for over 10 years. A typical day of work was answering phones and taking messages, filing student information. The hardest part of the job was making sure you did of mix up the phone messages because there was a lot of them and also the information you had to file but the filing was not difficult . The most enjoyable part of the job was working with some of the faculty and also the administrators from different departments.
Adjunct Instructor/Trainer (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, NY – May 9, 2017
I believe the experience here depends heavily on what department you are working in. From administration to teaching to food service and security there's many ways to experience NCCC. Each department has a chair or department manager who really sets the tone for those working under. I like the current chair so it's a more pleasant experience but still not much more than average for all the places I've worked.

Excellent Community College Humanities and Social Sciences Division
Professor (Current Employee) – Sanborn, NY – January 28, 2015
Niagara County Community College offers an academic and community culture that promotes service to the community and supports the development of a creative and progressive faculty. The emphasis is upon the primacy of teaching while encouraging research that promotes the mission of teaching and facilitates professional development. Our Faculty Resource Center facilitates extensive faculty interaction with weekly seminars concerning old and new issues in teaching, technology in the classroom, distance learning, problems of multi-culturalism and globalism, etc. Niagara Community College has a well-rounded and extensive course offering in philosophy, literature, social sciences and languages.
The greatest challenge of this job is teaching philosophy to students with less than optimal preparation for such study. This is also however the most rewarding part of the job, namely, helping students to achieve a breakthrough in critical thinking, self-reflection and self-understanding that inspires them to pursue further study in philosophy and the Humanities.
