Love the students/Staff are friendly/Pay is not great.

The staff is friendly. My direct supervisor is very nice, but some of the staff in other areas seem to be a little disorganized. You have to be very careful with payroll because they are very disorganized. They messed up on my payroll a few times. Although, they resolve issues fast and respond to emails very fast as well. They’ve moved to a new payroll platform, so hopefully that will resolve payroll issues.
The students are wonderful. The educational material is good, but too wordy and you need to alter it to really keep the students focused. There is a lot of repetition which is good, but some of the verbiage is overly complicated for these students, and it’s far too wordy. The students have a difficult time grasping some of the concepts. Summarizations are necessary with a lot of the ELA material.
The pay is not very good. Although, it works well for me because I’m finishing my graduate degree. However, it’s supplemental type pay. You couldn’t make a decent living.
The flexibility is great, but you don’t get offered very many classes. Perhaps that could change during the beginning of the school year. I came in late in the school year and from my understanding, classes begin to dwindle during that time.
Flexible schedule, students are awesome!
Low pay, not enough hours, disorganization of staff
