Excellent faculty support
ESL Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee), Annandale, VAAugust 19, 2015
This is by far the best institution I have ever taught with. There is excellent faculty support. The only drawback is from the lack of job security which is the nature of being an adjunct faculty. You can not always teach the same hours each term.

Student Ambassador (Current Employee), Woodbridge, VAAugust 2, 2015
Pros: Free food and merchandise on days or events. Uniforms are always provided.
Cons: Typically the position lasts for three semesters.
As an ambassador I learned so much about my capabilities and how well I worked individually and in group projects. The job helps you grow and develop skills to use in daily life situations and continue to use in the future. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and gaining experience in the work field. Management is awesome because they are willing to work around your schedule. Education always came first and they were willing to work around your class schedule. Overall, working as a student ambassador was more of a benefit to the employee.
