Motion Media Professor (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – October 16, 2018
I have always wanted to teach, and I am grateful I can fulfill that dream at SCAD. We are currently the #1 program for Motion Graphics in the world; as awarded by The Rookies for 3 years in a row. And I am incredibly proud to be apart of a team of faculty and students that make this possible. If I have learned anything from this experience, it is the value of collaboration. This is not only a great institution of growth for its student body but also one for its faculty.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – November 3, 2018
Picture a place where the executives and owner want to instill fear in their staff = SCAD. Bully-driven behavior and unfocused leadership is what I experienced. Many are afraid of losing their jobs unless they show submissiveness. All that with pay that is ridiculously low. Not worth it. Trust.
Checkout Assistant (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 15, 2018
SCAD is a great opportunity to improve yourself as an artist. They have many majors to choose to in case you find to dislike your first choice (which happened to me). Working with SCAD can be not so fun. They don't pay too much, but if you get to work at a job related to your career, it can be helpful. The workplace is nice. They supply a lot of tools and necessities that would cost too much to get them yourself, and they're neatly arranged. I learned many things, but I still feel I could've learned more if I could afford more classes. It was a memorable experience.
Fashion Tutor (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – August 30, 2018
I work as a tutor for SCAD's fashion department. I see so much potential but there needs to be a lot of reorganization with the program. Students are stretched way too thin and the quality of teachers is hit or miss. Either an amazing teacher who will allow questions and work hands on with the students, or a teacher who assigns huge projects without fully explaining what they are looking for and then yells when a questions is asked. I see so many students struggling and it's difficult to explain a complex design issue when they were not even properly taught the basics.
Graduate Mentor (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – August 17, 2018
Being able to help students who have a tough time with organisational and time management skills, is a great opportunity. It was an excellent chance to work hard with students to grow in their confidence with school work and know that they are more than capable to achieve greatness at this institution.
SCAD Language Studio, English Language Faculty (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – August 16, 2018
Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Language Studio is a wonderful place to work. The students are interesting and diverse and generally very motivated.The atmosphere is warm and encouraging. The work culture is supportive, for example, there is always someone who will loan you a book, share a worksheet or help in any way they can. The teachers truly care about the success and well-being of the students. I am very happy to be an adjunct professor there, and hope to continue there as long as possible.
Typically, teacher have 20 contact hours per week. We teach 4 days a week, leaving Friday as a studio day for the artists and designers. The days we work are very full, but the students are engaged and always make the hard work worth the effort.
TEACHER ASSISTANT_LEAD (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – July 2, 2018
The math department and the engineering department in an arts college will always be your friend if you're a good tutor. The hours are excellent, and you're able to tutor to the level that you're comfortable with.

Admission (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – May 1, 2018
You will be presented by fake smiles from those attempting to make it appear to be the best place on earth; however, underneath it all there is a culture based on fear and favoritism. Employees are overworked and not supported.
Management is not hired based on experience, but only on the ability of who can be manipulated the easiest. High level supervisors pit lower staff against one another to manipulate individuals and bully. Unfortunately, complaints and the indiscretions made against upper level management are ignored and consistently overlooked regularly.
The few descent managers SCAD does have are moved into positions they do not want in an effort to push them out. Very disappointing...
Just search for the article "How SCAD sells a Dream" and you will learn more about SCAD's culture.
Very pretty campus well taken care off good opportunities for the "right" student.
Getting to big for its britches and could care less about employees working for them.
Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – April 16, 2018
A very challenging job, but rewarding when helping students. It can be very emotionally taxing, due to dealing with real life situations, but the job helps you learn about the real world and manage your time.
