Your not the only employee having problems with Lisa Velarde (executive director). My pay has been cut numerous times so trust me your not alone. Lisa doesn't care about her employees, she watches out for only certain people some managers and other employees but that's it. This campus is truly falling apart and needs to make emergency action in order to improve!

There are things happening at this campus that shouldn't be happening! Students don't have to be in class hardly ever an they pass with an A! Employees and ex employees getting pregnant and then threatened to get an abortion! Pretending to be an okay campus when the regional team steps in to foresee everything wont last much longer!

An ex employee was brave enough to file a complaint with the better business bureau so I don't think this school will be open much longer!

First of all I like to say that I have never worked for or attended school at Florida Technical College. 

I do however have a family member who worked for your school at a different campus.  I am very familiar with a lot of the employees at all of the campuses and though I have never met your Executive Director I can honestly say I have heard plenty.  My advice to you is to pursue your claim with the Department of Labor and other supporting agencies.  My understanding has always been that your campus is a joke.  I am not trying to be mean but over the years I have heard it all. 1) Ms. Valarde has no business being the Director of anything let alone a Director of a college.  The fact that she was given that position is an insult to all other Directors, Faculty, Staff and even the students themselves.

 But the way she got the job is even worse.  It is common knowledge that she has been passed around from Director to Director. 2) Your campus is also famous for not only passing any and every student but also of having students that are not really there just to bring up the numbers. I am not going to lie I am very aware that this is an unspoken practice that is being used by all of the campuses but the Lakeland campus is by far the worst. 3) Unless you are in the circle of friends you are pretty much on your own. Your pay, your vacation and your job itself is constantly in peril.  Lastly, your campus by far has hired more felons to work for them than all of the other campuses combined. How is that even possible? 

Do not look for the answer because you will never get it.  Trust me, you will never change anything. All you can do is hope to get some of the money that is owed to you.

-God Bless

You've been there for how long? Why not leave and stop making yourself and everyone else miserable? You sound old enough to know this is not how you resolve a problem. This is my suggestion.. Move on! I hate to break it to you. NO matter WHERE you go, it will always be something. And being negative and complaining is only wasting time. Save the company some money and move on. Save yourself some time and get a new job. END of story.
