    I have been working at William Rainey Harper College full-time

    Pros

    Some are paid well. You get free continuing education courses.

    Cons

    HR is very nice but nothing is written down unless you are in a union. So, everything is up to the subjective nature of your supervisor. No lunchbreaks. Everyone is scared and overworked which means that they try to push their work on to you or blame you for delays.

    Cons

    They run this college like a corporation, they will do anything to get rid of long term employees to hirer cheaper paid salaries. Breuder is paid over 300k a year to be a president at a community college.
