      CUC has (had) excellent health care benefitsCUC has (had) excellent health care benefitsCUC has (had) excellent health care benefits. They also have continually done renovations to bring old mid-century buildings up to the modern age. The faculty cohort are friendly.


      CUC is very worried about funding. As such, they encouraged me to teach fewer hours so that they wouldn't have to pay my benefits. Class payment rates for adjunct faculty are less than minimum wage when prep is added to the hourly rate. Although I was there for over a decaded and helped grow my program considerable, I was overlooked for any promotions. CUC only promotes or hires old, white men for any leadership positions. Women and BIPOC should not even bother trying to move up or jump into a higher position at CUC. Take a look at their various boards and tenured faculty lists for a clear example of this inequality.

        The employees work hard to do their jobs with minimum pay, sometimes over 40+ hours a week, in a outdated environment. No really the whole place looks like it is still stuck in the 80s! There is no structure or procedures within the departments that's a plus if you like chaos. The coworkers I worked with were great and easy going and willing to help because they were in the same crappy boat as I was.


        Extremely low pay, you go from 40 hours to possibly more without warning to 'get the job done...' The Management is very unprofessional and disrespectful, if they are not in your face insulting you causing a hostile work environment they are doing some passive aggressive manipulation to get you to do what they want. The management likes to critique employees about their day to day activities and duties, however cannot do the aforementioned activities themselves and admit that fact! There are no boundaries in their behavior basically bullying employees, and do not bother going to HR they are clueless. If anything hits the fans and goes wrong management publicly blame you in front of other coworkers from other departments and your peers. They spout religious beliefs as what is the basis of their leadership at CUC however I think they were keeping their ideas of leadership more in line with the Old testament and slavery with how management acts towards it employees and how HR treats you for reporting such behavior. Do not worry about thinking about the benefits, long term employment or unemployment there is no mobility and you will get tired of their craziness that you will quit before they make you do something stupid..

      If employers are shopping cheap, should we just apply for roles that we're less qualified for?

      I had an interview late August, sent a thank you the same day, followed up when they said they would get back to me, and then again a week later and I got no response. I gave up and they just sent me an email saying the position was on hold and they hoped to have an update at the end of the week. I'd still like to see what they might offer me so what could I say in response?



      Have you ever been asked by a recruiter to sign an nda before they can speak to you about a job they're recruiting you for? Mind you they reached out to me
