I have been working at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College full-time
ABAC is a great place to work. The faculty and staff are helpful. Administration allows faculty the freedom to experiment in the classroom (try new engagement techniques) and pursue their own interests whether they include research or club involvement or a variety of college activities. I have the feeling that I can be as involved or not involved as I want to be, which makes me want to be included in most decisions that affect the college and faculty. I've enjoyed my time here and hope to retire from ABAC when that time comes. It is always warm in south GA.
The pay could be better, but it is equivalent to other small colleges in the southeast U.S. Pay across schools isn't standard at ABAC. Some faculty members were able to negotiate higher salaries while others were told they could not negotiate. There were times when certain administrators didn't manage faculty properly creating an atmosphere of distrust; however, many may be new to the job and learning his/her way of management. Like everywhere else, it isn't a perfect place.
Advice to Management
Continue to support the faculty. Remind higher-level administrators that there is no college without the faculty.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (Tifton, GA) in September 2015.
The interview was easy. I came into the Office of Financial Aid and got sent to the directors office. I sat down and he asked me a few questions,and he asked what do I plan on doing next year. I told him my plans and how I wanted to succeed and when we got done talking he called his director. He asked his director he had someone he wanted to hire, and he told me to have a good day.
