I have found there to be ongoing requests for contract teaching in a variety of disciplines. Contract faculty have a union so there is support for re-occurring and first request contracts.

Working at WLU for Aramark food services has been a wonderful experience. I love the fast pace and the multicultural atmosphere. Having children that are in university/college and high school, working with students has been the best experience to help me understand my own children. I'm content and very blessed

There were activities that were planned every once in a while but overall their expectations for you on a day to day basis were too much to balance with schoolwork.

I enjoyed working with my team as both professors, for whom I worked, were engaging, helpful and trusting enough to allow me to teach through my methods. They were always available when encountered with a problem and assured me that I was doing a wonderful job. My team members were helpful and considerate. We were able to disagree and discuss our ideas in a safe and effective manner. My students were a joy to have and seeing them succeed academically was the greatest outcome of my experience.
Pros
environment and job culture, topics discussed, freedom to plan own lessons

After working there for many years, there is no job advancement. The pension, parking fees, union fees and a few other small fees added to your pay check leaves you with little. Many people in a small area, many bosses, many 'leaders'..I would not recommend working here for average wages.. I've been told by many management sucks.
Pros
you don't work overly hard
Cons
everything about the place

Great place to get experience if youre just starting out. Depending on the position there isnt much room for advancement. The culture can be a little over competitive and a little dramatic
Pros
Experience, potentially get to travel
Cons
No room for advancement
