Instructors are given a lot of freedom as long as you design your teaching approach around their basic curriculum, you should be fairly successful. All staff & faculty members are extremely friendly and helpful if you have issues with anything, so asking questions to anyone who is employed there would be advantageous.
Not many Cons about Owens CC, just making sure you do your duties as an Instructor or else your class will be out of your control. It's basically based on your dedication to your position - if you do not communicate, then there may be issues, yet as long as you communicate efficiently with your supervisor and co-workers, then everything should be smoothly operating.
Advice to Management
Unless things have drastically changed since I was a Sociology Instructor there, then I have no advice to management since my experience was so satisfying. You are given a lot of space, so I don't recommend decreasing the privilege of allowing Instructors to work freely by engaging students in their academics. Let freedom reign!
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Owens Community College (Perrysburg, OH).
The interview was three on one. It was held in a comfortable room and had a friendly atmosphere. It took over a month to get a job offer. The story I heard later was that there were only 2 qualified applicants, but that one would have been against the hiring rules because she was the daughter of another employee in the same department. The higher level managers then said I could not be offered the job because I did not specify which library circulation program I had used in the past. The job posting had to be revised just to offer me a position. Meanwhile, none of my questions were answered between the interview and the job offer.
