Instructor (Former Employee), Niles and Dowagiac MichiganMay 24, 2015
Pros: appreciation
Cons: not enough hours
Absolutely loved teaching at the college level. Worked well with this age group and loved the wonderful class discussions. My co workers were professional and positive. I learned much about adapting my curriculum to different learning styles. The hardest part of the job was dealing with large numbers of absences from students. The most enjoyable part of the job was the student appreciation.

Fun and relaxed work place.
Tutor/Mentor (Former Employee), Dowagiac, MIApril 11, 2013
I would sit in the learning center at SMC and assist students with homework or just help them study something they found difficult. I also helped shadow a class. This enabled me to know exactly what the students were working on and how the teacher taught that subject.

I get to work with great people in my band class, and I get to manage a room with a partner. Between the two of us, we manage the play times so the students perform at their scheduled time.

Very friendly atmosphere
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Dowagiac, MIMay 16, 2012
Pros: country setting, friendly and students are great
Cons: not a place for advancement of women
I worked as an adjunct instructor for four years and decided to leave and get my master's degree. After graduation they had a position open and I applied. They hired a man in my old position where I was told my position would be held for me. I just feel as though they didn't give me a fleeting chance at being hired full-time. I wasn't even interviewed.

Admissions Specialist/Advisor (Former Employee), Dowagiac, MIMarch 27, 2012
Pros: friendly co workers, friendly working atmosphere, informative meetings
Cons: lack of staff, no inusrance for part time employees, policys are not well defined
Its a good place to work but its hard to get full time and you cannot get medical insurance without being full time. Constant changes are made to programs, positions and policy. Friendly work environment. Co-workers are team players.
