    Overall a great place to work as an adjunct, or tenure-track/tenured faculty member.

    I worked at Central Washington University

    Pros

    Great teachers, staff and benefits. Everyone is focused on enhancing student learning using face-to-face, hybrid, and fully-online curriculum delivery. Administration shares governance with faculty and students; very progressive. Flexibility and willingness to adapt to changing demands of the publicly-funded higher education market.

    Cons

    The usual politics that come with any organization. However, upper management is closely allied and works with faculty towards shared governance, something missing from many public institutions of higher education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue working closely with faculty and students; you're doing great!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Central Washington University.

    Interview Details

    Very welcoming and provided a good overall vibe. Never felt afraid to answer or ask questions. Discussed expected duties clearly and thoroughly including how a typical work day would be like. On-the-job training with current employees helpful to gain even clearer expectations on how to perform. Fellow bussers and other employees especially helpful with answering questions about job functions.
