Productive, fun, and interactive work environment!
I loved being an Orientation Assistant at Northern Virginia Community College! I was able to work closely with academic advisors, and learn the ropes of what goes into scheduling and class planning!

Avoid completely
There is a clear reason NVCC has such massive student and staff turnover. Pay is terrible considering comp universities. No room for growth or advancement. Avoid completely.

Work Study
This is a work-study position, you have to get an award through your FAFSA to be able to work. I really enjoy working here, my boss is great, the faculty and staff are great, and so are my coworkers.

not the best place to work
There are many good people at NOVA, but unfortunately they are all the "peers". Management and administration are not good. Many employees are not treated as if they are valued.

The diversity is wonderful. You get to experience almost every culture.
This is the largest community college in the state of Virginia so it is busy. I have enhanced my multitasking skills tremendously! Again, you cannot beat the range of diversity here. I look forward to interacting with individuals from various cultures and backgrounds.
Pros
Winter break is wonderful.
Cons
The pay could be a lot better.

Better than the VSP
Most of my time there was enjoyable. The work wasn't too hard and the supervisors weren't too overbearing. If you make traffic stops, give warnings, and walk around the campus a few times they dont say anything to you. Its a campus police position, its a retirement home for older police officers. If you're young, do not go there first.
Pros
School environment, Calls for service were to unlock doors, and talk to crying students
Cons
Calls for service were to unlock doors and talk to crying students

Nice place
Adding more work overtime but pay rate is still the same. Asking for a raise and get so many excuses. My supervisor was great she was trying to help but higher managers did not want to.

Great experience
I thoroughly enjoyed working as an adjunct. I liked the experience of teaching students and providing real life examples. The students and staff appreciated me due to my outside work as a counselor.

Amazing place to work for NVCC students
The NVCC Manassas Campus faculty and staff are very amiable and cordial. It was a delight working with such incredible people! It is a great beginner level office job, as everyone is professional and helpful in making each other feel comfortable.

No Leadership
This place (I have been there 14 years), has no leadership at any level. They recently instituted a matrix management system, which we teach in our Business classes never works for businesses. The pay is poor, in fact, so poor that when a Professor complained, they "found" an inconsistency and raised her pay about 5%. MMostMosfacuajust

Best community college to work with in Northern Virginia.
This is a student centric community college. Students learning is taken seriously by all faculty members. Class sizes are approximate 28 with computers if taking any of the IT courses.

Unprofessional, mediocre
Lacking the commitment to get the tools to the student to succeed. Egocentric administration with a priority to lower the bar for students and faculty.
