  1.  

    Great college to work for

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I was given a great deal of freedom to structure my course as I saw fit. There were ample opportunities for professional development, and the department paid my time on some of them.

    Cons

    Sometimes I was given only a few days' notice before the start of the semester whether or not I'd be teaching.

    Pros

    Getting to help a diverse set of people with an equally diverse set of questions. Working with all sorts of people helps break some cultural barriers, as everyone needs help with math. VERY flexible hours.

    Cons

    Training takes a semester, counts as a 1 hour class. Minimum wage for specialized work felt a bit of a hit to the gut, but making money is good nevertheless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the wages for the tutors. Value them.

    Pros

    Parkland has some excellent programs and many serious, ambitious students. The facilities and technology are updated, and instructors have a good bit of freedom to run courses as they see fit.

    Cons

    The administration in some of the departments is haphazard and disorganized. There are a lot of expendable adjuncts. I asked twice for my teaching to be reviewed, and the people in my department never got around to doing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standard procedures for evaluating adjuncts should be enforced.

    Pros

    The overall work environment is very good.

    The pay could be a little better.

    I would get both sides of the story before I made a decision.
