I am currently in the Adjunct Pool for composition classes. The pay isn't exceptional, but the autonomy is nice. Do expect to be evaluated, but the college allows a refreshing amount of self-governance (with guiding topics and objectives, of course). Naturally, the position is based upon need, so some semesters have two classes available, others none.
Pros
Autonomy
Cons
Not steady

I worked with the Physics faculty as a sabbatical replacement. The work was fine and the department was supportive. The University was marginally supportive and was uninterested in a permanent hire. I was able to set my own hours as long as I got my work accomplished.

This job was great! I had the opportunity to work alongside professors from my specific field so it made the work rewarding. I was exposed to technical analysis and a rigorous examination of datasets before deciding they were accurate and ready to use for estimation.

Some people tend to only secure their individual benefits rather than caring much about their team and other people around.
However, the university has some other services to offer, which makes employees feel a bit sense fo support.

If you are a Nationally Certified Medical Assistant or a Medical Assistant with any experience this position will not allow you to utilize your skills.It would actually be to your detriment to work there.It's unfortunate because it's an environment for learning being that it's a University. The duties ( vital signs for 4 to 6 providers, supply ordering,front desk back up, to name a few) given to the Medical Assistant could be preformed by a Certified Nurses Assistant or a trained Lay person. In addition the Director of the clinic excessively micromanages the nursing staff ,I repeat Excessively Micromanages the nursing staff it's absolutely ridiculous. If you have taken he the time to read this review and you decide to apply anyway you're doing so at your own risk.
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
Director micromanages, Skill not utilized

It was a good place to work. They are a little behind in their technology since it is Fairbanks. You have to pay for parking and you get some benefits as a UAF employee. Cheaper gym fee and free bus rides.
