Should be better.
Adjunct Instructor of English as a Second Language (Current Employee), Tempe, AZMay 5, 2015
Pros: Teaching part of the job is good. Pay per hour is decent.
Cons: Poor managment, expected to do more than one is paid for.
The ELA (ESL) department is a mess. Unprofessional and expecting much more work than they pay for on an hourly contract.

The actual job and teaching is mostly good, but much meddling from management.

There's a nice system tying all the Maricopa Community Colleges together and increases the chance to grab better work and large amount of opportunities. The problem, many of the jobs are temporary or contracts which do not allow you to work more than 19.5 hours total unless hired full-time.

It's great to know you're helping people in the community
Part time instructor (Current Employee), PhoenixApril 27, 2015
Pros: Flexibility, respectful career
Cons: No Benefits
There's nothing more gratifying than knowing that you've helped someone succeed in achieving their academic goals. As long as you adhere to the College guidelines and stick to the standards, you can enjoy flexible hours and reasonable pay for your time. The future salaries of part time teachers will rely on performance, so I would keep an eye on that checklist, and be a team player.

Experience/eduation is not rewarded in salary

Overall Rating of Rio Salado College is High
Security Guard Officer (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 28, 2014
Pros: professional atmosphere
Cons: no benefits
Rio Salado College is one of the 10 community colleges within the Maricopa Community College District in Phoenix, Arizona. Rio Salado is a unique institution, named "The College Without Walls". It is comprised on a large operations building as well as many satellite campus throughout Maricopa County. I was housed in the main administration building and acted as one of the security offices. The college is open extended business hours during the week and on weekends. High traffic flow is very common at all hours. The administrative staff is very professional and supportive of their staff personnel.

I enjoyed assisting students directing them to their respective destinations.

I did not encounter extreme difficulties in any facet of this position.

Productive and Fun
Full Time Student (Current Employee), Tempe, AZJuly 13, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, ability to study while traveling.
Cons: no ability to speak to advisement counselors in person.
A typical full time schedule at Rio Salado College would be studying at the library. Classes include a flexible block schedule that starts any Monday. Last classes I took were child development, children's literature and college reading. I learned about the wonderful world of children's books.
