I work at a community college that has been under great distress for a few years and the problems are mounting. Four years ago we had 26 million in our reserves and today we are 7 million in the red. In recent months the college has barely been able to make payroll. Our problems mainly lie with our board and administration. We have gone through 3 presidents in 4 years and positions at the college change daily. From a personal point of view the administration is constantly making changes which don't make sense. Instead of employees being promoted on experience and credentials’ they are promoted on who they can suck up to and how well they do that. The 3rd person in charge at the school is a cosmetologist with no experience and who does not even hold a bachelors degree. The person under her who has no degrees accept for a license in cosmetology was promoted to Director of Admission, Dual Credit and Financial Aid.
Because of the financial state we have had so many cut backs and employees who have been forced to retire. There have been many employees who have quit because of the emotional stress, the constant ill feelings which have sprung from poor management. We are constantly told that we are expected to do more with less and work 24/7 for the next couple of years. This would be ok if this was the case throughout the college. However as stated previously, employees are promoted not on experience but on whom you know and brown nose.
Because of the emotional and mental stress I would like to quit and be able to find another job. I lack one class getting my teaching certificate but the jobs available now are few. Is there any way to get unemployment if you quit rather than be fired from the job?
