Well Organized school
Summer ESL Teacher (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: wonderful work environment
Working at Columbia College was very enjoyable, the staff and students were very friendly. On a typical day, students came into class eager to learn which made the lesson plans go by very smoothly. Management was very helpful as they were very approachable and assisted teacher that had any difficulties in the classroom. The hardest part of the job, – more... was developing curriculum for advanced students as they worked quickly through the lesson than expected. I learned to always have several lesson plans on hand before teaching everyday as students always surpassed my expectations. Overall, this company has a very comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere – less

Pros: opportunities to grow and learn with addtional courses.

Productive and Amazing Atmosphere
REGISTRATION AND FINANCIAL AID (RFS) COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Columbia, MOAugust 7, 2014
I learned how important higher education is as well as a job in higher education. I believe that when working in higher education we must be sure to make a lasting impression on our students. We need to ensure that we are providing the best service as well as follow up to show how much we care. My co-workers were very supportive in making sure that – more... I always exceeded these standards. I fell in love with teamwork and this is what helped me through the trials and tribulations. I believe that when registration was at it's peak, this was the most difficult part. It was important to stay organized and work efficiently and effectively. I knew that we made an incredible impact on our student and this was the most enjoyable part of my job. – less

Pros: great community; awesome support; lots of teaching opportunities.
Cons: five hour classes lasting until 10:00 pm was a drawback.
I very much enjoyed my time at Columbia College. During the period of time I taught at Columbia, they provided me with ample opportunity to improve and teach a variety of subjects.
The management was terrific. They were very supportive and offered plenty of classes.
At the time I was there they had a great computer lab and ample support from the main – more... campus.
I taught five hour classes once a week over 8 weeks. Five hours is perhaps the only drawback. – less

A sad place to work.
Advisor (Former Employee), Los Alamitos, CAApril 23, 2014
The director and his assistant do not care at all about the students instead they prefer to stay home or sit at their desks watching Netflix. Both use school funds for personal use and if you show the slightest bit of moral character, you are judged as (this is the clincher) as "unchristian" and are let go of for inexplicable reasons.

I would not recommend – more... this school to anyone - whether for an education or a job. – less

Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: health plan
As a nurse I have had different experiences, and I have served children, youth, adults and older. Of all the lessons I've learned how to handle different situations.

Office setting with a very enthusiastic and ethical job culture.
Work Study Office Assistant (Former Employee), Columbia, MOFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: food day, able to listen to music, flexible scheduling, and easy make up time.
Cons: short break, low pay, low hours
In a typical day at work I would clock in and get started by logging into all of the sites needed for the day. I would then take part in answering and arranging tickets, archiving, and doing the tasks assigned by my leads. I learned how to work at a computer faster and handle excel in a business (non-science) setting. the management was nice both were – more... women and i had fabulous coworkers who actually all got to know each other and created a very efficient work environment.

The hardest part of the job was helping students and parents to get in the correct documents, especially taxes, which sometimes had to be rescanned and fixed to be seen. The most enjoyable part was food day. – less

Assistant Bursar / Financial Consultant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 26, 2014

The most enjoyable part would be attending graduation and seeing all of the students I assisted in completing their college education. – less

My typical day at work consisted of setting students up on computers to enable them to take their appropriate exams needed in order for them to receive college credit.
