Working at SJVC is like being a substitute teacher at a High School. The management is comprised of people who pass the EGO test and the only feedback you get will be negative. The school wants to milk every dollar from students and wants the teachers to fail kids as much as possible. It was my worst experience as a teacher and on top of that the pay is bad considering how much the CEO is ranking in from student loans. This school needs to be shut down by the gov like ITT was.

Not the place to work. You give them all your time and energy and they don’t appreciate it. They tell you that they are going to give you a raise and then they never do. Then when the opportunity for full time becomes available they don’t tell you and just hire someone else for the position. They don’t give you classes and make up excuses on why they can’t. And if you are not in managements office kissing their butt you are not a priority. The instructors they have now don’t care about the students success.

Toxic environment, no room for growth. This company does not invest in their employees at the campus level at all. Most promotions I have seen while an employee there was at the Corporate level.

Work environment in one word - bogus. The College culture- Nepotism. From the campus level to corporate. And whatever you do, do not have an opinion or else your out the door. Being reminded that California is an at will state to keep you on your toes.

Management values openness and honesty. Does it always happen? Maybe not, but the culture values it, nevertheless.
