Typical Day: We see students and assist them with schedules and process applications. I have learned the application guidelines and requirements, how to add waivers for students to enroll and process applications in a timely and detailed way. Our workplace is great and staff is friendly.Hardest part of the job is meeting deadlines due to shortness of staff and overload of work.The most enjoyable part if the day is the satisfaction I get when knowing my work is making a difference.
I taught courses at 3 locations including the main Eastfield Campus,over the 5 school years. Most of my students were adults with full time days jobs and family members that had to be taken care of for the student to attend the 3-4 hours of class.Therefore the students were very focused to learn the material and apply it to their full time jobs for advancement opportunities. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching these students.
Staff (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – March 11, 2018
My initial job was as a Specialist in a computer-aided program to improve the basic skills of adults returning to the workplace. Future positions were similar with opportunities to substitute for Instructors. All positions allowed for management and administrative capacities. These jobs, at the two-year college level, were, very, people oriented. I enjoyed working with the diverse populations of a college climate. The most difficult aspect of a college career is the hours involved, meaning evening and weekend work schedules. From this career, I carry skills and experiences that brought about professional and personal growth. Education is a lucrative career for me.
Flexibility in work schedules.
Discipline or command of a subject matter, such as English and strong interpersonal skills are a must.
I enjoyed dispatching for the Dallas County Community College District Police Departments. It was far from being a normal daily routine job. Every day was different. The School District was a good environment to work in.
Lead ERP Administrator (Current Employee) – Mesquite, TX – February 1, 2018
A place I would recommend to anyone who are worn out from the corporate world. Althought the pay grade are less, much less than the real world, but it is a very relax and flexible place to work. They many 26 pay holidays. Just think, 12 days in Christmas, 7 days in Spring break, plus many more other minor days off. Come to work late is ok, so is leaving work early, as long you don't abuse it.
relax, flexible, days off, have plenty family time

Experienced and passionate educators and professionals enthusiastic to share their expertise can get paid a good hourly rate here, but the adjunct work is renewed every semester and the full time faculty pay is low.

In my role as sustainability coordinator (Current Employee) – Lancaster, Texas – October 8, 2017
Being an adjunct is the hardest job in the college system. Usually only part-time hours available, of course, no benefits. Online is a challenge because you feel disconnected from the social life on campus, and importantly your students as well. You would do well to get feedback from email, much less video chat sessions. For "A" students it works effectively but for students who are challenged in basic college skills (thus needing more personal attention), it can be quite difficult to manage. It is good to gain experience working as a teacher but you must have another source of income to survive. The best part of being a teacher is the joy of observing bright young minds expand their learning horizons.

Being an SI leader was great. The hours were very flexible, besides having the mandatory class attendance. The students are usually very kind and hardworking. And the sessions are wonderful because it's all left to your discretion. It was a very humbling and excellent experience.
