    I worked at Truckee Meadows Community College part-time

    Pros

    School schedule accommodation. On campus. Keep yourself academically sharp while in school.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and organization. New leader/coordinator for three semesters in a row, and because of this there is a lack of recognition for individuals who are great tutors. Raises stopped, due to switching up of leadership, and I had not recieved what used to be a semesterly raise in a year.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your tutors! Watch them work, and learn how they work. Figure out what tutoring methods benefit our students the most. Recognize your tutors for doing great and providing a positive envirnomnet for the students to learn.

    Pros

    TMCC strives to offer wonderful guidance for student employees that will continue to benefit them for years to come.

    Cons

    None for the amount of opportunities you can find the right fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great communication.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Truckee Meadows Community College part-time

    Pros

    I got a paycheck at least.

    Cons

    Internal issues within department and infighting. No support. Blank stares to issues with current teaching environment, upper manement infighting between staff, I was doing the work of a full time prof and no thank you. Could not get support with supplies for class. I did not appreciate being blamed for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Address issues before they blow up in your face. Treatment of part timers reflect on moral of staff and students. Budget cuts will also reflect on current attitudes and the rampant in fighting reflects badly on staff.

    Pros

    Good students help make the experience at Truckee Meadows Community College a good one. Only a few drop off. Administration keeps you up to date. Some freedom in teaching.

    Cons

    Changes in academics and student population keep you from having consistency in a paycheck. You might get 3 classes one term, then one or two the next. Unless you're only looking for something to do, you cannot live on part time faculty work.I do the same high quality for the two classes as I do for 5 courses. Pay schedule could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for trying to ensure that your adjunct faculty feel respected and valued. Try to pull some weight for hiring full time from within your adjunct pool.

    I have been working at Truckee Meadows Community College part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Minimal supervision & reporting for instructors. The student population was great.

    Cons

    I would say that they need to hire more full-time instructors, but I know its a funding issue and mostly out of their control.

    I have been working at Truckee Meadows Community College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    TMCC is a great working environment; all of the staff are exceptionally helpful and everyone here seems to have a "let's make it happen" attitude. Student-success is truly at the heart of everything here and adjuncts are given a lot of freedom in developing courses.

    Cons

    Not many cons other than the fact that there does not appear to be many full-time faculty opportunities/slots.

    Advice to Management

    Would be great if there was a "full-time" track available to adjuncts; could prove merit through teaching excellence, service, and publication.

    I have been working at Truckee Meadows Community College part-time

    Pros

    The different departments at TMCC have some of the most amazing professionals in the city, state, and nation. It's wonderful being around such great individuals while teaching or tutoring at TMCC.

    Cons

    Like all universities and community colleges, silly politics and bitter decision making play too large a role in the education system. Students and educators are what comes first, and sadly that's forgotten sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Allow part time instructors to work more. They're a huge resource to the college and employing them further would be beneficial to the college and the instructors.
