Writing Tutors have free reign
Writing Center Tutor (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, KSJanuary 30, 2018
You are only allowed to work less than 8 hours a week. This means that you will be getting paychecks of $80 every two weeks. This is not a good position for anyone who needs to pay student loans.

Great place to work!
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, KSFebruary 22, 2017
I love working for Ottawa. The staff and faculty are supportive and administration supplies all the necessary tools to make teaching in an online environment productive for the students and teachers. Working in a Christian environment is very rewarding and I feel the student's education and support are the school's primary concerns. The hardest part is waiting for classes because the work is challenging and rewarding.

Instructor (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, KSDecember 14, 2016
There is a lot of opportunity for growth and advancement.
This does not necessarily mean an increase in pay. The up management are paid above what those are paid at a comparable institution.
