Be aware of (not necessarily "beware of") positions with "temporary" tacked onto job titles. Despite the otherwise unionized campus, temps lack representation and, in turn, elevation into non-temporary, unionized positions. Temp positions fill budget constraints. An academic year's commitment has very minimal quarterly hours, with possibly additional on-call but unguaranteed. Quarterly schedules can change. Full-time work processes/knowledge are expected yet little continued training and access to department info non-temp peers receive. Good experience, however, to obtain some work and to network toward stabler employment elsewhere. Offers credibility for next potential employer.
academic setting, 9-12 month commitment, friendly campus environment
non-union, limited hours, scheduling changes, limited communications
