      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.

          Adjunct Faculty - Mathematics

          Business Outlook


          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if the primary goal was to make a textbook that students are unable to read, while simultaneously using uninteresting, outdated examples.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.

        Any tips/suggestions for Software Engineer III technical interview?


        Case Manager

        I applied to 4 jobs last week. Two companies replied that thy are reviewing my application and I have an interview tomorrow with a third. The company I'm interviewing with is the one I'm least interested in of the four, though it is better than my current job. What is the etiquette if I'm offered a job with this company but I want to wait and see what response I get from the other 3? Should I tell the company I need a couple weeks to decide, or be up front that I'm waiting for other offers? Or?



        During my interview with a Vice President, he mentioned that the "background check" had been reviewed. He brought up cities I had lived in at one point, even though I hadn't included that information on my resume or LinkedIn profile, though it is accurate. Additionally, he was aware of my entrepreneurship experience, which I had not disclosed anywhere. I'm curious about the source of this information. I'm currently progressing through the interview rounds without any offer or signed documents.
