“If you were entitled to health insurance, they had excellent plans to choose from.”
The best part about the job is the benefits. I just wish I was more aware about the Tution Reimburstment.
The pay scale in my department as an adjunct instructor was very good, but you were limited on hours which varied from contract to contract. You are not paid for holidays or at any time the school is closed, Spring Break, Summer Break and Christmas Break. They take social security out of your paycheck and do not match it to social security so for however many years you are employed there, to social security it looks as though you have not worked. Instead they put the money they have taken out of your check for your part of social security into what is called a Social Security Alternative Fund (acts like a retirement fund with only you contributing). Therefore, when you retire the amount of your monthly social security check is drastically reduced. If you have been there a long time and need to go on social security disability (for example), you will not have enough credits to qualify. You do not get benefits as an adjunct or as a lead adjunct instructor doing the same exact job as a Full-Time or Temporary Full Time Instructor. If you are a Temporary Full-Time Instructor, you get the same benefits as a Full-Time Instructor which are excellent.
The benefits were good, average as we were self insured. The HR department was very hard to pin down about bennies. When I asked specifics, I was just given an 800 number to call. The HR folks told me to take my benefits policy book in to Dr. and doctor and I could look at it together and decide what treatment was covered.
Pros: Standard state pension and excellent health benefits, including, preventive care. Spring and winter breaks are paid time off and amount to an additional 3 weeks' vacation! Cons: Expensive for families.
Great package with lots of time off.
Great options, and lots of support in choosing the best plan for my family
For many/most positions, investment-based retirement contributions are matched up to three percent. Healthcare choices for self coverage are very reasonable (as long as you make sure to check the schedule of benefits and pick appropriately based on your needs).
Health insurance, plentiful vacation and sick time, holidays off including two weeks off for Winter Break and one week off for spring break payed.
