Pros

Fantastic place to work. Deans are flexible,but most importantly the job of teaching young and older students in a communty college environment is nothing short of rewarding.

Cons

Really no downsides, of course teaching p/t is always a challenge if you have no other income, but that's what you sign up for, it is clear from hire what your maximum load can be. They do their best to give you the classes.

Advice to Management

You care and it shows, thanks for making it a great place to work. I look forward to many many more years.

    I worked at Southwestern College (California) (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work environment is generally positive.

    Cons

    There is still much construction/renovation happening on campus; the noise and dust may bother some. There aren't enough tenured faculty - most are adjuncts. It is difficult to acquire even an adjunct position unless you have a referral.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on student success and quality faculty. Perhaps look into hiring full-time instructor/clerical worker hybrid positions rather than a bloat of clerical staff and adjunct instructors.

    I have been working at Southwestern College (California) part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible Hours
    - Decent starting pay
    - The job itself is easy

    Cons

    - Management is unorganized and sometimes inept. For example, our department magically misplaced $200k in funding, so tons of tutor jobs were cut
    - Sometimes we're micromanaged.
    - Many recent hires are unqualified.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people instead of everyone who applies
