C minus
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee), coloradoApril 1, 2015
Pros: use of faculty lounge
Pro: The college is always adapting to its culture and community.
You do have the use of paper and other administrative tools.

Con: Part time instructors are paid poorly. There are no benefits, no job or wage guarantees.
There is no evaluation policy for part time instructors. Evaluations are based on the feedback from students and from peer observations.

There are many hard parts involved in teaching.
1. Long and many hours spent preparing to lecture
2. Research adult learning activities
3. Developing and giving assessments.
4. Coaching and facilitating classroom management.

The most enjoyable part of the job can be the students.
Another enjoyable part of the job is being in a learning environment.

A place to learn entry level skills for a position in the Accounting field.
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee), Aurora, COMay 11, 2014
Pros: able to set my hours.
Cons: not enough hours as a work-study student.
My afternoons started mid day for just a few hours a week, as a work-study student. I would assist the accountant with filing and matching invoices. I learned how input reconciliations in their in house system, as well as effectively contacting various departments at various universities. I assisted a few different departments and all the workers were all very busy and helpful. The hardest part of the job is making sure that when I scanned documents that the documents would scan precisely. The most enjoyable part of the job was the relaxed atmosphere.

Productive workplace and friendly coworkers
Work Study (Former Employee), Aurora, COApril 29, 2014
Pros: long lunches, work your own schedule
Cons: low pay, gossip was always around
A typical day at work started off slow so basic things were taken care of then when it picked up it got tougher and moved more quickly.

I learned that networking is not as easy as it is cut out to be, also learned every workplace has it perks and quirks when i comes to security and programs they use.

The hardest part of the job was that since I was the work-study i wasn't allowed to learn certain things and know certain passwords.

The most enjoyable part of the job was I was in the place in which I understood most of what people were talking about in the IT "language" and i got to learn as I worked.

Research Biologist (Former Employee), Aurora, COMay 23, 2012
Pros: flexible schedule, ability to be creative
Cons: grant funding
In working as a research biologist, I was able to see my research through from concept to final post-flight testing. I wrote proposals to secure a flight, wrote all safety documents, and final reports. I was able to design and build the research payload, and perform flight component testing. Often, revisions had to be made due to the conditions of the flight. For instance, bacteria were modified throught transformation, the media was adjusted, and temperatures had to be maintained throughout the flight. It was challenging to find, or create suitable components for flight, but this was also very educational. It was sometimes challenging to work as a team and discover the strengths of teammates. Seeing the research payloads fly upon the NASA platforms was very fulfilling, however the most enjoyable part of my job was participating in the astronaut training program and flying on the "vomit comet" to perform some biological testing.
