Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – January 31, 2018
I liked working here. My co-workers were very helpful with helping me out with anything that I needed help with. A typical day would be either shredding papers, making some copies and just your regular day to day clerical work.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – January 10, 2018
Days were easy enough and productive enough to keep you occupied and not bored. Management is friendly, yet biased with certain staff members. Lack of hours and chance for career progression create a very lackluster work environment.
Reserve campus police officer (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – December 27, 2017
Was a great place to work but has declined greatly over the years. No room for growth with in the department. No faith in management. Poor morale and no team work. Lack of trust with in the department. Generates so much negativity . Overall unhealthy work environment
Veteran Administration (VA) Work Study (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – November 9, 2017
I work as a contract worker (short-term) and only was paid minimum wage for no more that 30 hours per week. The work itself was very repetitive and had few challenges, however, there was much demand to get it done as thoroughly as possible and fast. 8 out of 10 students would be understanding while the other 2 would become very argumentative, vulgar, and occasionally threatening. That would be the hardest part of the job knowing that students rely on the financial aid to make ends meet. The rewarding part of the job is knowing that I had a small part in the students success once they graduate. The work environment itself is very mellow and relaxed, but very professional. This is also true to for the management.

Phlebotomy Class Assistant (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – October 16, 2017
I started working at Victor Valley College as their phlebotomy assistant about a month ago. This phlebotomy class is also the class I attended to become a licensed phlebotomist. I am teaching the students about correct way to perform lab draws and will soon be taking on teaching the students easier and more fun ways to remember tube tops and their additives. My first task at this job was to do inventory for the class and before I knew it we were doing skills and interacting with students. It has been fun doing tasks for the professor of the class and interacting with the students. I hope to continue to learn and prosper with the phlebotomy program because I believe it is beneficial to relearn material about the career if you want to see yourself thrive in it. This job is indeed keeping me educated about the art of phlebotomy. My boss is also the professor for the class and he is really well at communicating about tasks he needs for me to do for the class. our workplace is a relaxed classroom setting. The hardest part about my job is reminding the students to stay focused. The most enjoyable part about my job is helping the students with tips on how to perform a venipuncture.
non rushed work place, communication with management
Dean (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – August 25, 2017
The culture at VVC was driven by 3 very strong unions for full time faculty, part time faculty, and classified staff. The goal as I was told the first week of employment as a Dean was to not expect to be around for 4-5 years. The target on my back by the faculty union was clear at year 4. I resigned.
Student (Full-time) (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – June 10, 2017
Continuing my education is the best thing for myself and for anyone who wants to go beyond high school. Victor Valley College is a school with no frills, settled in the high desert. I took one of my courses in a trailer, in dire need of carpet replacement and new chairs and desks. Having said that, Victor Valley College is an excellent school because of its instructors. My biology professor lives in Maryland and flies every weekend to teach in California, saving his weekend for his family. Every instructor I had, loved his/her job teaching. Their passion showed. Junior colleges have some of the best kept secrets: great instructors.
