    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible and easy to schedule around your quarter classes, no pressure to work more hours than you can handle. Management is nice and easy to approach, no one will snap at you for getting sick last minute or lowering hours due to stress. Really great place.

    Cons

    Not so much Edmond's itself but coworkers aren't always the hardest working. I had to pick up the slack for other tutors a lot because they'd ignore the request board hoping someone else will take it up. Can't really report it and it makes the workload uneven at times. Not really a big con though, since I enjoyed talking with people and helping them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe be a bit more stern on lazy worker, because there are a few who will take advantage of the kindness of upper management.

    Pros

    Amazing management, people, and everyone is passionate about their job.

    Cons

    Being a part time employee it's hard to know when/what classes you are teaching until the very last minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the younger generation and their ideas of making a department better.

    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 (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.

    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.
    I encourage my fellow friends looking at this review to join Edmonds Community College. I definitely would recommend it with an open set of arms and heart! :-)

    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.
