Assisting students (Current Employee) – Michigan – April 16, 2018
I had the privilege to work under many different office managers. Some were better than others, but the lifetime of learning at nmc serves to facilitate vibrancy and vigor in its patrons. I loved coming to work at NMC every day and honestly the atmosphere of community there makes me never want to leave. unfortunately student workers are forced to take classes over the summer because of nmc's strict interpretation of student worker position laws. I wish this wasn't the case. NMC showed me that I want to have a future in higher education. Whether it will be a pit-stop along the way or a permanent change, I am happy with it for now.
working on homework at work, advancement is possible with dedication, something new always, meeting students and helping them on their educational journey
no health care, no benefits for supplemental, limited hours for student workers, not a whole lot of upward mobility options
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – November 29, 2017
The management was not willing to provide all of the tools and training information to be able to learn all that was needed to learn. Extremely high expectations without complete and thorough training. Management was too involved with their own work responsibilities to devote the time needed for training to perform the job effectively.
Private Tutor (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – February 27, 2017
I would typically start my day by being handed a room with ten to twenty college students that were poorly taught in mathematics. Many of which were grown men and women who could not multiply/divide properly, and as a tutor I tried my best to teach them it, only to return a week later and have to teach the same student it again. The most saddening part was that many of these students graduated college with the only mathematics classes they took were remedial courses. That fact was most saddening.
Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Traverse City, MI – January 5, 2015
A typical day at work means using project management tools to produce marketing materials for all facets of the college. I've learned a lot about design and more about working within a team. I have great respect and adoration for my co-workers. I genuinely enjoy every part of my job and it will be hard to leave. The hardest part of my job is that hard fact that there is currently no room for my professional growth in the budget.
