Tough to be an Adjunct Instructor
Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee), Fall River, MAApril 1, 2015
Pros: great student body, facilities, union and good payment of contract
Cons: politics and poor advancement of adjuncts, union needs help
The majority of students do their work and completed assignments that lead to passing grades.

Some students, maybe one or two in a class, want special permission or want to have an exception to the class structure or
grading to improve their scores. If they are not satisfied, they find ways to defame without cause.

Many students have issues and in order to improve their performance, behavior has to be taken into consideration. Tutoring one on one or group sessions help to define the knowledge and skills necessary to preform well on test or to complete a project. Some students do well, while others figure out to directly or indirectly improve their grades.

It is when a student uses indirect methods to improve their grades that puts an instructor in harms way. Many instructors adjust to comply with student wishes, some are informed they will not be considered for rehire. Adjuncts are on contract or work as contractors, the college does not have to hire you.

Many in Administration would probably agree, the student is paying the bills and that is the way things should be run? Except, when in the end, the student suffers from a false sense of accomplishment or does poorly in professional school to become a nurse or technician.

But by then, it is on the student, they got what they wanted from the college, the responsibility is on the student after they leave.

So I would evaluate this college as trying to do the best thing for its interest.

Great Learning Experience for College Students
Student Worker (Former Employee), Fall River, MAAugust 19, 2014
Pros: good learning experience, hard work
Cons: long days. not much of break
While taking courses at Bristol Community College we were able to sign up for special functions that were held. Within these functions we learned a lot about our careers in the food industry. We learned about working the front of the house jobs and the back of the house. We got a real taste of what life would be like in those areas after school was over. It was accommodated in pay and free food. The hardest part was that a lot of the functions were on weekends where most of us had to work other jobs or they were after long school days.

its a nice place to work
Tutor (Former Employee), Fall River, MANovember 21, 2013
Pros: helping people
Cons: work only on an as needed baceis
A typical day you meet with students and help them better understand the class material. It greatly improves your people skills. The management is very helpful as are you co-workers. The hardest part if the job is getting over whatever personal hertals stand in the way of the student.

HR and Management = horrible
former employee (Former Employee), Fall River, MASeptember 30, 2013
Pros: people are friendly and make the day fly by.
Cons: hr, management, cliques
The atmosphere and people that work there are nice. The Human Resource Dept and management are absolutely horrible. The union is an absolute joke. The Director of the department and person above him are really nice and great to work for but they don't get to call the shots. Throughout the college people are in charge of departments that they have no qualifications for. Nobody in charge seems to be on the same page. If someone in charge likes you, you will go far. There are just too many chiefs and not enough indians. A lot of cliques. It's a shame because it could be such a great place to work. Overall pay isn't bad but the limited amount of companies you can choose for medical benefits is horrible and expensive.
