Student Worker (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 2, 2017
With this being my first office job I was finally able to put my skills to the test when it came to clerical work I made sure that before I left the office that everything was done in an orderly fashion as well as left notes for my co-workers if we had different shifts and didn't work together or see each other until Friday. Hardest part of the job was when the scanner was malfunctioning and I couldn't get one of my tasks done until it was fixed. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting along with my supervisor thus having a positive energy around the work space. Because I was in school I was able to work around my class schedule which allowed me to not only work but make sure I had time when I got home to study and do homework for my classes.

Love teaching, love the kids, the administration is killing the institution
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 16, 2016
Teaching at Harold Washington College has been one of the great joys of my life. I have stuck with it for nearly 6 years because I have never had a job that I've been happier doing. But I work as an adjunct and thus get paid poverty wages with no benefits despite working as much as the full-time faculty. There is every indication that the administration knows this is unsustainable and unethical, but they do not seem to care.
