Part-time. Far More Work Than You Are Paid For!
Part-time Instructor (Former Employee) – Milwaukee Campus – September 27, 2018
The amount of money I had to spend in supplies, parking, printing (because I did not have an office to which in-house printing could be delivered) and time that had to be spent on grading, entering grades, setting up BB, etc. was not compensated accordingly. The part-time office is shared by all part-time employees and did not even have a computer and printer for support. The mail boxes were located so far away from the classrooms you needed to arrive a half an hour early just to wonder the building in time to try to set up your lesson in the possible 10 minutes between classes.
At the beginning of each semester, classroom assignments were a nightmare. For example, you were assigned a room for which you did not have keys and was likely completely irrelevant to your subject matter. If you had a night assignment, you had to call security to open the room door. How unprofessional does that make you appear?
If you don't mind dragging your materials back and forth, parking in a free lot 2 blocks away (particularly challenging in the winter), paying at least half of your salary for health insurance and generally like being disrespected then this is the job for you!
Most enjoyable part of the job...many of the students I had the privilege to meet, hear their stories and hopefully, provide the encouragement to continue!
