Adjuncting for a living - makes no living wage

Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at University of Central Florida as a contractor for less than a year

Prosyou're associated with a reputable educational organization

Consyou cant support yourself and your family

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of exploiting and adjuncts and get lower grade instruction, groom a second-tier faculty corp - pay them semi-decently and still get around all the HR legalities

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Computer Specialist (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at University of Central Florida part-time for more than 3 years

ProsI get to make my own schedule around my classes. They understand that school is and should be the most important thing to me at this stage in my life.

ConsI find that sometimes I wish I didn't have a job while being a full time student so I could get the full college experience. But alas I have to work to be able to pay bills and rent.
