    I worked at Tarrant County College full-time

    Pros

    Great philosophy, great colleagues, great students

    Cons

    Adjunct pays poorly, but full-time is super time-consuming; choose a level of work based on your need for financial and work-life balance.

    I have been working at Tarrant County College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of paid time off for holidays, and a 3 day weekend during the summer

    Cons

    Depending on who you work with, some people who have been with TCC for a long time in the same position can be negative and hateful.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your employees have families and responsibilities outside of work and that things can pop up unexpectedly at any time

  4. "Northwest campus is the worst to work for."

    I worked at Tarrant County College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, time off, and easy job.

    Cons

    No raises for performance. Micromanagement! Science department makes their instructional associates do the work of two jobs and does not compensate. If you have a graduate degree they won't hire you to adjunct but expect you to cover for professors without adjunct pay. You will be treated like a child who can't work on their own. Work for any campus but northwest!

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanagement, don't overwork your employees, and treat employees like adults.

    I have been working at Tarrant County College part-time

    Pros

    Great facilities at newer campuses

    Cons

    Nepotism.
    Don’t even think about becoming a full time employee unless you are part of the “in crowd” or know someone. Even outside candidates with less education and experience are hired in over part time internal candidates

    Advice to Management

    Transparency in hiring!!!! Less favortism

    Adjunct hours are very limited. Could not work more than a set number or wouldn't be scheduled for more classes. No upward growth.
