Initially a good place to work, but one that changed all top and middle management and let all freshman writing instructors go.
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Fairfield, CTJuly 17, 2015
I spent almost 12 years at SHU, and I have to say my colleagues and I enjoyed teaching the small classes in freshman writing. We spent our class and tutoring time nurturing a student's writing style and helping them grow in the college experience.

For the first 10 years I taught at SHU, management could not have been more supportive. They listened to any issues we had and acted on them. It was a most comfortable environment. Then, the president resigned and his replacement removed most of the deans with whom we worked. It was then determined to eliminate all freshman writing programs, which ended our time at SHU.

Overall, the students were eager, and there were almost no cons to the job. We all looked forward to entering the classroom every day and to interacting with each other.

Radio Show Host (Former Employee), Fairfield, CTNovember 5, 2014
A typical day at the radio show was discussing many different controversial topics such as the second amendment and the knockout game. My co-host was a friend of mine. We worked well together and but the down side was that we agreed on just about everything so there wasn't much debating. The hardest part of the job was the research needed to keep a conversation alive and entertaining. The best part of a job was actually having a show that people listened to, however few they may have been.

Office Administrator and Teacher (Former Employee), Connecticut USAMay 22, 2013
Pros: excellent staff members to help me when i was lost.
Cons: honestly, none!
My day would begin at 8:30am. I would arrive at the office and my boss would have a to-do pile of various things for me to do e.g projects including research for international Summer Testing and tallying up Summer Pay Rolls. I would then teach for 2 hours every day, basic reading and writing to non-native English speakers which I enjoyed immensely. Then in the afternoon I would pair up with other student and have a conversation with them to help them improve their English. It was a wonderful experience. I got along with everyone very well.
