- 5.0Dec 30, 2019CoordinatorCurrent Employee
Student-oriented with great staff. Benefits are not as expensive as other places.
Raises and promotion process can be difficult. Hiring process also a hassle.
- 5.0Jun 27, 2021Office AssistantCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearJoliet, IL
Great Part-Time hours, flexible, great staff environment,
No structure in the hiring process. No benefits by being part-time.
- 2.0Jun 4, 2014Adjunct Faculty - MathematicsCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsJoliet, IL
Little supervision, freedom to use teaching method of choice, formal evaluations that can be used as evidence of successful teaching
The math department at JJC does not care who is teaching their classes, as long as they get taught. Their hiring process involved me showing up, being handed a book with some materials like a sample syllabus, and being given a class. Imagine if students taking the class knew how little vetting went into the selection of their instructor! The adjunct situation at JJC works best if you are an older teacher, who teaches the same class each semester. If you are not a favored teacher, good luck getting a decent schedule. If the schedule doesn't work out for you, on to the next resume in the stack. The math departments' textbook selection leaves much to be desired. They clearly use Michael Sullivan's texts because he works there. His statistics book is particularly appalling. It's as if the primary goal was to make a textbook that students are unable to read, while simultaneously using uninteresting, outdated examples. The pay is insulting. We make less than minimum wage, and we have a union.
