    I worked at Craven Community College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, students, beautiful campus, overall great educational atmosphere. Especially with the small class sizes, and more one-on-one attention.

    Cons

    Upper management! The President at the time was not student-centered. I hear they have a great new President!

    I worked at Craven Community College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The college is committed to its students and desires to improve services. The students are wonderful to work with and there are many leadership opportunities and special opportunities for students.

    Cons

    The college is focused on increasing enrollment and improving services, but do not provide the resources necessary to successfully implement change and support growth. In the past few years they college has gone through many restructuring of offices and staff. This resulted in staff taking on additionally resources and responsibilities and doing multiple jobs for the same salary.

    Pros

    Good, supportive, encouraging supervisor was a great help.
    Good training opportunities to keep you up to date on new tracing modalities.

    Cons

    Low pay, as set by state govetnment, for Adjunct Instructors for the time involved to plan, review on line work & respond to students.

    I worked at Craven Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a nice campus, kept clean. Pay is very competitive for adjunct faculty, especially Basic Skills instructors. Paid training and flexible schedules are some of the best perks. This school also makes sure it stays on top of legal changes.

    Cons

    Depending on what you teach (for me it was GED) you have to look at the population of New Bern. Some students are not really interested in learning. It can be difficult to manage the class. It is difficult to get in at the college. I recommend making friends with someone in HR or the department you wish to work in prior to applying.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the management seems very disconnected to what the instructors really do on a daily basis. More involvement would be highly beneficial.

    I worked at Craven Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, year round work, ability to move from department to department

    Cons

    low salary, limited resources due to state funding, highly competitive jobs due to a downsizing

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed working here and I enjoyed the drama-free atmosphere. I loved working alongside the librarians and I obtained many skills that not only helped me in my studies but also have made me a reliable and trustworthy asset to my current company. I am able to find and research information in a way that gives my company insight to make formidable and informed business decisions on a day-to-day basis.
