The staffing and president are all amazing to work with. Very reliable and helpful. You are given all resources to make sure you succeed. The students have all been very respectful. You feel very supported working for PSCC.

I really enjoyed working at Pellissippi State as Adjunct Faculty in the ESL Department. Co-workers were supportive and the students were highly motivated. My only complaint was that there were very few avenues for an adjunct to transition to full-time faculty and you never knew from semester to semester if you would have a job or not or, even if you did, how many teaching hours you would get. This is ultimately the reason I left, although I enjoyed the work and was happy in the position.

Trusting environment as a director...given the freedom to run your department independently. Collaboration with other departments occurs regularly, so lots of help if needed.

I really enjoy instructing at PSTCC for the school of nursing. The training is amazing. I have support from my boss and co workers. The nursing department is like a small family.

I would only recommend this as an adjunct if you have another way to self sustain elsewhere. I have had to work other odd jobs just so that I could have basic securities.
If you are recent graduate, I would only recommend this if you are willing to work a lot here and willing to work elsewhere. I would also recommend you applying for the ACA (Affordable Care Act) if you want health insurance. Tell them that you are only part time. They will work with you.

I really enjoyed attending and working for Pellissippi State. The students, faculty and staff are like family. Everyone there really wants to be there; so they are helpful and give their best to the students. That's how I acquired the job. The staff realized that I needed extra income; so they found me a tutoring job, as well as an internship.
Pros
Open-door policy with staff
Cons
Not enough hours

Great place to start as an adjunct, but not enough pay to live on and very stressful trying to juggle multiple part-time jobs and hope to get a contract next semester. No paycheck in August or January.

Easiest employment I've ever had in my life. Biggest issue is boredom or a boring task. It is advantageous to work there if you are taking classes, as you will get one class waived or discounted in many cases.

One works for TN Boards of Regents therefore pay and benefits are decided at the state level. Promotion is based on job description not job performance. Jobs are increasingly requiring a higher degree obtainment than a bachelors degree.
Pros
benefits and retirement
Cons
one can get stuck in postion for a long time

Assist new students with getting familiar with their Pellissippi student acccount and aided perspectives students with the application procedure. Gave tours of the campus and represented the school at different events.

Meeting new people was an enjoyable part of my position and the hardest part of the job would be having certain employees try to take advantage of you and want you to do their job.
Pros
Tuition paid
Cons
Not included in office functions
