Work study is good if you can get it, Adjunct is alright
Tutor/Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – Edison, NJ – June 26, 2017
Not a bad place to work overall. For work-study students the hours and pay are controlled by the program. For adjuncts pay is slightly under that of other schools but the personal investment is much less.
Worst part of work-study is the politics. Getting a job usually involves knowing someone, and depending on the department the management can be less than ideal.
Obviously scheduling is the best for both work-study and adjunct.
Worst part of adjunct is the length of time between requesting a class and notification of actually being assigned to a class. If the material has been taught before this isn't terrible since the preparation won't be too intense, but for new courses it leaves something to be desired. Also, access to materials to prep for a class is not easy to come by.
Flexible schedule, alright pay
Pay could be better, politics and budget usually hinder departments
