Fun, easy going, and flexible hours

Internal Mail Room Postage Allocator (Former Employee)
Honolulu, HI

I worked at Hawaii Pacific University part-time for less than a year

ProsWorking at the campus as a student offers an abundant number advantages to working at off campus work sites. For one, the school will more than likely be much more flexible with your hours and circumstances that arise because of school activities than other outside companies. My particular job in the mail room was a very fun and easy going environment.

ConsMy time working for Hawaii Pacific University was very good so its hard to think of any cons honestly. I was always paid on time. If I wanted more hours or needed time off those accommodations were almost always met.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

HPU, largest private university in Hawaii

Instructor, Communication (Current Employee)
Honolulu, HI

I have been working at Hawaii Pacific University full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLocation in Hawaii attracts amazing students from around the world. Central location. Generous retirement contributions.

ConsStaff and faculty are not valued. No one's job is ever secure. Superior pedagogy not valued or even encouraged by upper management. Programs are cut, people are terminated, important guidelines change with little advance notice,

Advice to Senior ManagementUse faculty and staff as valuable human resources, not as inconvenient "line items."

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Adjunct Instructor

Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee)
Honolulu, HI

I have been working at Hawaii Pacific University part-time for less than a year

ProsGreat opportunity to "cut your teeth" teaching at university level.
Military campus programs allow you to work with fellow military members and trade ideas and knowledge.
Great response from permanent faculty and military campus advisors. Staff is very helpful.

ConsPersonally, I'd prefer 1-2 hour classes instead of 4-hour classes; but it's not a bad schedule.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor new adjuncts, consider having a lesson plan for them to follow; making your own from scratch can be intimidating.
