    I have been working at Sierra College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a part time instructor in Business I am supported when needed but for the most part left alone to manage my classroom independently. I've taught at a few other local schools and Sierra has the best department culture even through two leadership changes the team stays strong and supportive of each other. Campus offers great work room facilities for part-time staff.

    Cons

    Evening classes seem to be declining in demand. Courses are transitioning to on-line. Daytime classes have always had higher enrollments.

    Advice to Management

    none at this time.

    Sharing knowledge and experience with student RNs who as a group are very ambitious, honest, hard working.

    I worked at Sierra College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had freedom in how I tutored. I had an amazing supervisor (Aviva) who was great help when I was stuck. Paid decent and treated kindly.

    Cons

    The physics tutoring room was shared with the recitations for physics classes. I believe it should be open all day. The room is also very cramped.

    Working as a lab instructional assistant's at Sierra College as been great. The staff and students are excellent at Sierra College.
