Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – Coconut Creek, FL – August 5, 2017
My most enjoyable job aspect was that the students were so dedicated and hard-working.
I did a great deal of on-line teaching as we came into online classes, but the classroom itself was much more beneficial to all with one-on-one contact and connectivity to the internet for music videos and other technology.
I learned class-room management skills and a great deal about many different cultures.
Management changes often, which was the most difficult part of the job.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the wonderful students.

Broward College is an excellent community college and employer - good opportunities, supportive managers, and amazing benefits. Where else do you get the backing of education to your profession, plus two weeks off at Christmas and one week at spring break?
ample vacation and holidays, great benefits, flexible environment
Federal and state funding can sometimes affect budget.
Very good educational environment with team work and cooperation first on the list. Free workshops to increase your knowledge and computer skills. There is always something new and exciting happening on campus. This year Broward Collegewon an award for academics
Swim Instructor, Broward College (Current Employee) – Davie, FL – June 16, 2017
Worked with student of various ages and cultures. Learned to modify class content due to weather and various skill levels. Assistant dean was always available.to assist with equipment and administrative duties. The hardest part of the job is weather restrictions. Most enjoyable part of the job is the students.
Fairly fast paced especially at the start of each new semester. A lot of filing and basic secretarial duties. I was able to learn how class schedules work, how to add and drop students as well as set them up with remediation when they needed. The Dean was a very intelligent person and I was able to learn a lot from her, not just on educational but every day life as well. She came off as having an abrasive personality but genuinely had a huge heart. Most of the students were amazing and a great laugh, I was able to build some great friendships with both students and co-workers. The hardest part was always at the start of the semester. All in all it really wasn't hard, just very busy. There were a few times when our system went down and that was pretty stressful, but we always figured it out. The lunches and meetings were usually great! I am very happy to say that I was able to build some life long friendships.
New student Orientation staff (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 7, 2017
The work environment was complex but stimulating students had pompous questions. Learning was the nature of the environment. The technology was functioning properly power-points was created to teach new incoming students. Management was there to help in difficult situations. The hardest part of the job was getting students to remember what they learned. Enjoyable part of the job was being able to use my interpersonal skills.
Work Study Student (Current Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – June 2, 2017
A typical day at work is just interacting with students and assisting them with registering them for school. I have learned how to work well with others, how to manage time, and how to become more organized. This job is quite manageable but it will get a bit hectic around the time of registering for the school. The most enjoyable part of the job are the workers; they are very nice, friendly,funny, kind, and willing to help you with any difficulties that you're having.
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – May 25, 2017
Broward College used to be Broward Community College. They have graduated to the new name and it shows. The work environment is professional and they are up to date with the latest technology. The administration is supportive but stays out of the way. I recommend it for professors and students alike.
Flexible, wide range of subject matter.
They distribute their courses to adjuncts, so good luck getting a full-time job.
