    I worked at Grand Rapids Community College

    Pros

    It provided an employment opportunity with good around class scheduling. I learned quite a bit about working with people from completely different cultural backgrounds.

    Cons

    Pay for non-staff non-permanent employees is terrible, and likelihood of getting in on a permanent staff teaching or administrative position isn't good.

    Advice to Management

    Pay higher wages for entry level positions, provide opportunities for advancement (that don't end up going to outside candidates) and work harder to retain quality employees rather than most senior ones.
