Great place to work if money is not a driving consideration
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Elgin, IL – August 28, 2015
Overall as an adjunct instructor you are at the mercy of enrollment numbers. If there are not enough students signed up for your slotted class then you don't teach that semester. That can be a bummer but its that way as an adjunct anywhere. So if you are not dependent on the small salary you get as an instructor then this is great. The class sizes are small enough so that you can be on a more personal level with the class and you can be more creative with your lectures.

A lot of building of props and setting up for events
Sound Tech/Carpenter Tech (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 25, 2012
Being that I run sound for events I also work with a team of people (6-7) in the shop in which, we build props for plays and maintain the theaters. Since I was hired the learning process of behind the scenes production is very important from building props, to hanging them on arbors, and practicing cues before the days of performance. The biggest things I learned was professionalism and how to build stable props and make them look good.
