    Problematic Adjunct Employment

    Jul 26, 2022 - Adjunct Lecturer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Students are (mostly) enthusiastic to learn. The Biology Department is staffed with amiable faculty (for the most part). Technology available to teach classes in-person is decent.

    Cons

    Do play favorites when it comes to rehiring. If you have not taught with them for at least three years, you are not guaranteed consistent employment. Administration has been very demanding on teachings throughout the Pandemic. Union for Adjuncts is not particularly helpful.
