    I have been working at Illinois Institute of Technology part-time (More than a year)

    I worked at Illinois Institute of Technology part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Greg Pulliam, the Associate Chair of Humanities, was supportive and helpful. After assigning me with my classes and giving me a rundown of the department I was on my own. The pay for an adjunct instructor ($3500/course) is better than most in the Chicagoland area and the students were motivated to get good grades. Unfortunately, that was typically there only concern. Nevertheless, they were friendly and easy to work with in the classroom. Once the semester began there was no oversight from the department so I was free to conduct my courses as I wished.

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a con but the department provided no guidance once the semester began. They seemed to be relieved to have another adjunct faculty member to cover a couple courses and didn't care about what was going on in the classroom as long as the students didn't complain.

    It's a good position that I can help the community on campus and get to know a lot of people.

    It is only a part-time job, and it is not related to my major. So it helps less to my future job seeking.

    keep going to build a better living atmosphere on IIT campus.
