    Pros

    Invited me to their annual conference in my first year of teaching for them. They allow me wide latitude in the administration and operation of my classroom and I have an open door to the Department Chair anytime I want to speak with him. I have learned A LOT!

    Cons

    They expect a lot of their adjuncts while the pay is pretty average. I must do lectures every week for each class and add additional content for students to make comments as well as lots of time setting up the course.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the adjuncts more, spread out into the military sector, and offer adjuncts more perks such as tuition reduction and health insurance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Baker College.

    Interview

    Simple process which involved me answering some basic questions. Nothing more than sitting at a desk and having ideal conversation. Didn't really cover any past experience or educations (which surprised me being a college).

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle a student who is verbally upset with a status involving financial aid?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I attempted to negotiate salary, however, it was made very clear to me that this was not up for discussion. I then tried to negotiate hours...and again this was made clear that no part-time employee was allowed under ANY circumstance to exceed 25 hours per week...
