  1.  

    A good start to my education and professional career

    Current Employee - Writing Assistant  in  Lynnwood, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Writing Assistant in Lynnwood, WA (US)

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very laid-back, easygoing work environment. My supervisor was very adapt at both running her department but not over-working or stepping on the staff.

    Cons

    Pay was low at the time, but it was part-time student work. I felt like there was no room for growth without first finishing my studies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real advice here, everything seemed to run like a well-oiled, if large, machine.

    Procedures and computer software are antiquated. Circa 1988. They still have documents that need to be “typed”

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Honestly, this space right here would NOT fit all the things I found great about Edmonds Community College. Having both studied and worked at the college, I can say that Edmonds Community College has the following strong suits and values:
    - Great Work Environment and People
    - Organized Company Structure and Systems
    - Work/Life Balance, Travel Opportunities
    - Clear Vision, Mission and CORE Values
    - Clear teaching directions & committees
    - Great health care benefits and training
    - Career Advancement / Growth Opportunities
    - Great Payscale for almost every level at the college
    - Great 10-year / long-term plans and strategies
    - ...and so many more!!!

    Cons

    Edmonds Community College has expansive ways to grow according to its potentials...
    It has changed from being constructive to being more collaborative as an organization. Therefore, these changes have to be supported at every level and in every department at the college... Many efforts and investments have been done, however, there are still some many inefficient pipelines that can be reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am overall satisfied with my career and study journey spent at Edmonds Community College.

    Parking can be hard. Usually have to come early to get a good spot. Other than that, this is a great college for both learning and working.

    The staff at the Career Action Center at Edmonds CC are the BEST to work with! Truly wonderful people.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College

    Pros

    I worked here under Work Study program. It was one of the best positions I have ever held in my professional career. It was so rewarding to help students get started in the worker retraining program and to see their progress quarter after quarter.

    Cons

    Not always enough to do. But on the other hand, being a student and working under the work study program, it allowed me time to work on my homework.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the awesome work and support of student employees.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's easy to find jobs especially if you know someone. Also, if you're good at your job it makes it easier to get hired elsewhere.

    They will work around your school schedule so you can fill in those pesky 1-2hr breaks with something productive.

    Cons

    A max number of hours is set to 19. Also, the pay can be low. Luckily i was paid from 10-12.5/hr

    Former Employee - Office Assistant I in Lynnwood, WA (US)

    I worked at Edmonds Community College full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities and experience gained to take to other employer.

    Cons

    Limited full-time employment opportunities, too many part-time employees working 15-17 hours or less per week. Some departments have poor supervision of work study students and do not communicate well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Combine part-time positions to full-time and/or suggest the union pool benefit monies so part-time workers (15 hours/week or more) have benefits (even though some of the cost will come out of the part-time employee's wages (similar to the k-12 school districts).
