    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Chesapeake College as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team of Adult Literacy Educators to work with!

    Cons

    The location is too rural for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Take advice from your staff to understand the pulse of the community you serve!

    I have been working at Chesapeake College as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great LMS software, friendly staff, supportive colleagues.

    Cons

    The pay is really low for adjuncts, and they do this weird thing where they don't pay you until two months into the semester--then you receive three equal installments, all on the last day of the month (e.g. October, November, December for fall semester OR March, April, May for spring). The final payment isn't until weeks after classes end. It's definitely not bad if you don't have an urgent need for the extra cash, as I did.

    Advice to Management

    More full time faculty, less adjuncts. There are clearly a lot of courses available, so why not hire more faculty instead of paying dozens of adjuncts a non-living wage?

  3. "Administrative Associate"

    Pros

    None they do not pay well and Administration abuses their employees

    Cons

    Overworked underpaid Administration lies to their employees they are paid well and everyone else is not

    I have been working at Chesapeake College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very close to home. Employee tuition waiver for taking classes yourself. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    I have none to list.

    I worked at Chesapeake College as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -little time investment relative to other part-time jobs
    -independent job
    -great to work with and help students
    -You don't have to deal with students' parents

    Cons

    -The first paycheck you will receive for the spring semester is March 31st, and October 31st for Fall Semester. Why they wait so long to start paying you baffles me. You get paid approx. 1600.00 per class spread out over three months (March/April/May).

    -Adjuncts are not given much recognition at the college, you will feel unnoticed and not as important as the administration or full-time faculty. The top-level administrators do not want a powerful voice coming from the adjunct faculty.

    -Little room for career growth (going full-time) as of 2016.

    I have been working at Chesapeake College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Variety of offerings avaliable, academic degrees, technical, higher education, WIB on campus, and good location.

    Cons

    Long hours without commensurate pay

    Advice to Management

    Take the lead in advocating higher pay for both adjunct and full time faculty.

    Pros

    It was convenient to work for the college as a work study student while attending the school. It gives you valuable connections and references you may use at a later date.

    Cons

    The pay was only 10.00 per hour, however I still feel this was a reasonable amount. I have no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management. As a work study student I had a positive experience.

    Pros

    Upper management is knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone is open to helping one another succeed. The campus is well maintained and everything you need is available.

    Limited room for growth is a strong negative. Administrative positions are rarely open and are highly competitive.
