Adjunct instructor interview questions shared by candidates
"Occupational experience verification: ...verify a minimum of 10,000 hours of non-teaching, occupational experience... directly related to the Program/Course area in which you will be teaching... with employer signatures. Include proof of self-employment, with notarized signature for each completed self-employment form..."
They wanted me to do a role play but the person playing the student was just bizarre! I've taught for 7+ years and am a licensed counselor. If someone acted this way in real life, I would assess for severe cognitive impairment and refer to disability resources office! They must have wanted a certain, specific phrase or response. But, with years of teaching and counseling, it was still a mystery to me. They praised me highly and went on and on in person and via email... then abruptly hired someone else. Was basically a waste of time. In my experience, PCC already knows who they want to hire. They only post a position and interview other candidates because they have to by law. In reality, it's just to check off that they did it. So, if your dept chair didn't invite you to interview, you're probably wasting your time!
The part-time faculty parking facilities were not available until after 6PM, and yet some teaching assignments were in the morning or early afternoon, when the largest student population overwhelmed the general parking facilities, while the full-time faculty parking facilities were nearly empty. Also, no keys to the facilities were made available to part-time teaching faculty.
