Good academic place to work but has little regard for adjuncts
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – July 29, 2016
Baker College provides good education and has high standards for learning. Adjuncts are not guaranteed any courses to teach at all and the courses are not handed out by an objective system. Not a great place to work if you are looking for steady pay.
High standards for student academia
unpredictable schedule and often are left without any income as adjunct
Site Coordinator (Former Employee) – Coldwater, MI – July 29, 2016
Baker was a great place to work with great people. I loved helping the students achieve their goals. However, because they are a private institution, the pay was low and the number of hours worked is long. They have great programs and helps prepare students for careers.

Bookstore Clerk/ Supervisor (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – June 8, 2016
Baker is a good place to work, the staff and management were all very easy to get along with, and supervisors would have no problem working around your school schedule. Minimal nights and weekends made the job enjoyable. A great part time job.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Jackson, MI – June 7, 2016
A great place to work and teach. Sadly adjunct professorships carry little security and additional benefits.
Teaching requires a passion for the subjects and the students. it's sad that the educational shift in America is putting extra stress on schools to meet a graduation standard which may mean some students will not be granted access to higher education. If this happens schools like Baker will be hampered from serving a large part of their core students.
Math Tutor Work (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – June 1, 2016
My typical day at work is tutoring various students in areas of mathematics such as pre-algebra or trigonometry. I also solved technical issues at my job such as printer issues or customers having trouble on his/her computer. My favorite part about working at the library is that I met soo many different people from different backgrounds and I get to learned something new everyday. Probably the hardest part about this job is that I can't always help someone.
Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – May 15, 2016
I love working here because being a full-time student and working full-time it gave me the opportunity to connect with new students who moved into the dormitory and I was able to get homework done as well.
Computerized Accounting Instructor (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – April 24, 2016
Teaching for Baker has been a very rewarding job. I am able to setup the tools I need to teach the course effectively utilizing Blackboard and on campus instruction.
The hardest part of the job is getting students to communication and learn to gain from each others views. I enjoy working with students and helping them achieve their goals, earning their college degrees.
