Co-workers and Support Staff are excellent
Instructor in Behavioral Sciences (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – July 7, 2014
Most days one can simply go into work, meet with the secretary, pick up any materials one needs to and go into the classroom and teach. I've always got my prep-work done. Working with other faculty and staff is almost always easy: by simply emailing the required documents it's possible to get tests, papers, etc duplicated on time and sent on to the right office for class. Computers are available for instructors to use. The Director of my department is a reasonable, amiable guy who is easy to talk to if one has any questions about policy or if an issue with a student comes up. The best part of the job is simply the teaching--I love to teach and do it well. The hardest part of the job is the lack of security, low pay and relative distance between the common instructor and upper levels of administration, many of whom have never taught in a classroom.
Flexibility, good atmosphere, good students
Poor pay and low job security
