    I have been working at Wake Technical Community College part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Love the flexibility of my schedule and my manager is wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    While it is no longer an issue for me, there is no opportunity to work full-time as an instructor. Seems the college is not hiring full time where they would have to offer benefits.

    I worked at Wake Technical Community College part-time

    Pros

    I had a wonderful experience as a writing tutor in the Individualized Learning Center. The pay was reasonable and I enjoyed working one-on-one with the students on an interesting range of writing papers, especially the foreign students and parents returning to work.

    Cons

    My experience as an adjunct instructor was horrible. Too many surveys to fill out. Too little pay for the work involved and too much training that did not help much for the job. The students were often rude, too.

    I have been working at Wake Technical Community College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is very good as an instructor.

    Cons

    Be prepared that most students will not be motivated; many are just playing a financial aid game. PD, benchmarking, advising 150+ students/instructor, mandatory faculty work days before and after the semester is over, mandatory advising hours, etc. There is a lot of minutia that really frustrates the faculty and I would assume it affects their teaching whether they admit it or not. The pay is terrible and HR will lowball you on the offer. On the positive side, it is standardized so you can expect your peers to be paid relatively the same.

    I worked at Wake Technical Community College for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed being an adjunct instructor because I taught evening classes from 6-9pm. I had the option to teach 2 nights a week or 4. Because the job was in the evenings I was able to work a full-time job during the day. Management was very well-informed, helpful and communicative. They really worked to make sure that their teachers had everything they needed to make their classes great.

    Cons

    At the time I worked there (and I'm sure it's the same now), the vast, vast majority of employees within the Basic Education Division (ESL included) were all adjunct instructors. This means that as an employee you can work up to a certain number of hours but not over because then the school would be required to provide you with benefits. As a short term or part time gig it's great but not a stable career as there are no benefits and you are technically a 'contract' worker and may not be needed for the following term.
