Reviews from employees or past employees

“I loved my time at CNCC. I miss it, the small town, and the people there. I had a lot of support from administration and staff in general. There did seem to be biased opinions now and then and I did not enjoy the security side of the job, but overall a very enjoyable experience. Pay could have been better.” – Indeed

“My time at CNCC was alot if work trying to make a difference for very low pay, no real support and knowledge of where the school’s direction was heading. A lot of changes in Administration every year and no clear path to being successful.” – Indeed
