A great work study job while in college!
Student Worker: "work study" (Former Employee), Schenectady, New yorkSeptember 21, 2013
I worked as a work study for my college's music department. There I sorted out music for various different instruments and arrangements. It was a filing job for the most part, helping the Music departments' secretary. I monitored the music wing's piano lab and kept it maintained while students practiced away. I liked the job for the most part, it was – more... very flexible, my hours were based on the work load each week. It was very part time at best and it kept me busy during my first year at my community college. – less

Poorly managed college with unacceptable compensation
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee), Schenectady, NYAugust 13, 2013
Pros: little supervision
Cons: no benefits, low salary, low hours, difficult students, no career advancement
Working part-time at Schenectady County Community College is a degrading experience. The majority of the students are significantly below the level of the courses your are supposed to be teaching, this creates a very challenging environment. However, there is no reward for overcoming these challenges. The administration does not supervise their adjuncts, – more... therefore you have free reign, so you can do an excellent job without recognition, and without fair compensation. The job has no benefits and the pay is sub-standard for my qualifications. They insist on keeping your course load at (or below) half-time for the academic year so that they pay you the low adjunct salary. Instead of hiring full-time professors, they continually hire more adjuncts to teach their courses, maxing out each of them. SCCC has unfair hiring practices and should be ashamed of themselves. I hold a doctorate in engineering from RPI and I worked 25 credit hours in 2012 to make just under $20,000, compared to the $45,000 (with benefits) I would have made if I had worked 30 credit hours as an assistant professor. They are taking advantage of recent graduates in this economy and should hire good teachers, not just make financial decisions. – less
