Research and Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 26, 2018
I enjoyed work the positive atmosphere and team work. I learned quite a bit when it came to contracts and dealing with State Funds. Prairie State College is a great place to work and meet a diverse group of people.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – June 11, 2018
Lack of supervision allowing clerks to ignore rules of the security of giving out checks to the right person. Clerks sit at their desk with window close so they don't have to help anyone and let the line get very long. Hard to get on the platform to get print outs to give to customers.
enjoyed working there.
Hard to climb on platform to get print out and clerks refuse to hand them to me.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – April 23, 2018
I could not ask for a better place to work part time as an adjunct professor. My peers have always been supportive and helpful. The student body is diverse and hardworking. The class sizes are very manageable with no more than 24 in a class (science lab).
Chicago Heights - Lab assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – April 16, 2018
I like to help people. When a student needs help with something then I look forward to helping them and figuring out the problem. The management is excellent. The hardest part of the job is lifting heavy objects to move them otherwise my job is easy and enjoyable.
Veteran Coordinator Assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – November 29, 2017
I enjoyed working here because the hours were flexible for me to go to school, I just need more hours after school. Everyday I was able to meet new people and help them with their situations to go to school. My supervisor and I had a good work relationship. The job was laid back and busy at the same time. I do not want to leave, but I would like to be full time instead of part time. I now have the time to work full days and I wanted to do more for this location.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – October 6, 2017
Where shall I start! I have never worked at a place as awful, Management is the worst of the worst. The Union is a joke and sides with management. Look for another job. Not worth your time and aggravation.
Co-President (Former Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – August 11, 2017
This job does not pay really well, but the other benefits outweigh it. Your work week is manageable, your time off is decent.. No one calls you to come in to work on your day off. No weekends. Fridays off in the summer. Not sure why I left this place. Oh wait, the $$

Great place to learn and grow as a professional. Everyone in this community college is very supportive and understanding of their employees needs, and they do all they can make you feel welcomed. Love and miss this place dearly.
Prairie State is a great School and a good employer.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago Heights, IL – March 31, 2017
A typical day day at work involves answering phones and completing projects. I've learned basic office funtions like how to use excel and and file things properly. The manager are fair and very kind. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people better themselves by furthering their education.
