Director of Operations, Caswell Campus (Former Employee) – Yanceyville, NC – May 2, 2018
Piedmont Community College strives to meet mission and vision goals in an increasingly stressed and economically distressed environment. The core administration and staff is invested and dedicated to the local community.
Work Study Student (Former Employee) – Roxboro, NC – December 26, 2017
Piedmont Community College work study was a great place for me to learn new skills. I worked in the Arts department so I learned to mat artwork which required basic math skills. I also learned to talk to people about their work and skills.
Adjunct (Former Employee) – Roxboro, NC – September 18, 2017
Piedmont Community College is a pleasant place to work with a respectful and diverse student body and a small, tight-knit community of coworkers. Getting full-time work is harder, as there are limited openings at any given time.
Instructor (Former Employee) – Roxboro, NC – September 6, 2017
As a contracted instructor there was very little supervision. You have to be disciplined and prepared to teach. You will have the opportunity to impact students and build a comfort level when it comes to making presentations.
Teacher's Aide (Former Employee) – Caswell County, NC – November 28, 2016
Working as a Teaching Assistant was a rewarding experience. My direct supervisor supported me very well. The overall experience of providing teaching assistance in that particular environment was very helpful to me as a person and taught me how to work with individuals of diverse backgrounds.
Help Desk (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – September 13, 2016
I started studying at the Piedmont Virginia Community College when I was 18. I came to America when I was 16, and I had to learn a whole new language and culture. I still study at Piedmont Virginia Community College and enjoy the benefits. Everyday when I worked, I would answer phone calls, fix some computers. Image new computers. Replace new computers, and changed hardware.
Bottom Totem pole holfer (Current Employee) – roxburger, NC – August 23, 2016
good place to get started. you'll learn early on that there is little or no room for advancement in IT here. we spend all year keeping old machines running and everytime we ask for new machines/equipment, we are told, "theres no money."
the campus is old, there is a "PLAN" but we arent allowed to ask about it.
At the time of my employment at ACC I was just learning to become a teacher, it was a great place to begin. My coworkers were knowledgeable and patient and so was my supervisor. There was a great mix of students from all cultures and backgrounds. It is a good place to learn and work.
Great opportunity to meet outstanding people each and everyday. My manager was an amazing mentor. The work was fairly easy. Worked with a lot of students on the computer. Wasn't too many coworkers because the facility was a little small, so it was only the manager, and two coworkers including myself. But I got to learn from the work I did while I was there. I was only there for two years because I was a work study student. But it was the best two years of my life. Working on the computer gave me so much knowledge about technology.
Respected and dedicated professional environment with experience providing internal employee development
Disability Support Assistant (Former Employee) – Roxboro NC – September 12, 2014
Worked with individuals with mental and/or physical disabilities; monitored clients progress, testing and assisted wit note-taking. Also used interpersonal communication techniques, created and edited spreadsheets, Word documents and forms
On a typical day, I assist students in developing competency in course work, keep records of tutoring sessions, and complete follow-up forms. My supervisor was a nice lady to work for on most days. There were a few days that I tired to stay out of her way. The hardest part of the job would be not having more hours to work throughout the week. The best part of the job is those moments when students finally grasp the information that I had been helping them to learn.
Helping students develop competency in their work.
