I was given many duties and not enough time to complete them

Katrina left this school in disarray. Many classes were cancelled as the school was commandeered by FEMA and National Guard. Records and transcripts were scattered. Class registration each semester was very time consuming and problems with computer system interrupted the flow of registrations. I assisted the admissions administrator but she was often – more... out of the office and many of the duties I had required me to be away from my desk. I could not abandon the phones or transfer them elsewhere. I was very frustrated working here and found many of my co workers were related. – less

Adjunct Professor/Tutor (Current Employee), New Orleans, LA – February 14, 2014
I love my job teaching, but I'm returning to my sales career as a full time career. I get along with everyone I work with and enjoy feeding off of one another ideas. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing a student struggle with materials in the beginning of the semester, but then they finish with a good grade at the end of the semester. Progression – more... and learning is there as proof. The hardest part of the job is to get the ones who do not care as much about their school success interested in going forward with their careers. I learn that I cannot force students (employees) to do what they are supposed to do and allow them to realize their mistakes themselves after not following guidelines. – less
