Current Employee - Adjunct Faculty  in  Charlotte, NC
Current Employee - Adjunct Faculty in Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Central Piedmont Community College part-time for more than a year

Pros

I work as an adjunct instructor at the college. I appreciate the excellent LMS tools available, as well as training to use those tools. From an infrastructure standpoint, CPCC gets high marks. Overall job satisfaction is probably more directly related to the full-time instructor you report to and their communication/management skills.

Cons

You don't teach for the money. Pay for adjuncts is a flat amount, regardless of the hours you put in to preparing and delivering your course.

    Pros

    Advisors and Counselors are very helpful
    Clean environment
    Easy access

    Cons

    Office politics
    Some office staff are rude
    Not good communication from supervisors
    Not enough front desk coverage
    Not the work schedule I want

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring people that are related to each other or go to the same church. Hire decent people who are nice and friendly to ALL, and who are there to get the work done. Let part time employees work three full days a week instead of wasting their time to come in for a few hours every day.

    I worked at Central Piedmont Community College part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Obtaining a part-time teaching position at CPCC was easy; they're glad to have outside business professionals teaching for them who are not necessarily academics.
    The students are the best part - they really respond to what you have to share with them and are generally grateful for any extra time you can give them.
    CPCC offers some of its adjunct faculty additional training in progressive teaching techniques.

    Cons

    The pay is embarrassingly low given the time and effort you must invest in teaching a course at CPCC.
    As a new adjunct, I was essentially on my own in terms of how I wanted to handle the coursework, writing my own tests, etc. The freedom to choose was nice, but more help and support from the full-time faculty would have been better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjunct shouldn't be asked to begin teaching without a more formal orientation/training.
