Complaint / review text:
From one instructor to anyone else out there looking for a teaching job. Save yourself the aggravation and apply elsewhere.
This school lacks discipline and structure. Students do what they want when they want because the school is so desperate to keep the students they have. Half the time the "director" of your department will not back you and will often talk about you and other instructors to the students. And if you have a great head of the department like mine, she will often be completely unprofessional, disruptive to your class and be down right rude to the students.
And if you're lucky enough to get a great head of department like mine, beware she will talk about night students to day students about how those students are "retarded" and "need to take xanex." So professional right?! These directors change grades for students just to get them to pass and they put in hours for students they favor just to get them out the door. My head of the department also got an enrolled student to pay HER car payment on a student's credit card because she sobbed to the STUDENT that she couldn't pay the bill that month. So professional, i know.
And if you still are thinking Star may be the place you want to instruct at, realize that this school will never have enough product, teaching supplies or instruments that you need to thoroughly do your job. I am truly shocked that this corporation is still in business. And one last thing, job security is not an option at this school. They will smile and tell you all is dandy and no way are they laying you off, until boom..
Pack your stuff there aren't enough enrollments to stay. I wish I would have done my research before I took employment with this company because it is by far a complete joke. And be warned it is not just the norristown campus that is in shambles, all of the campuses all around are struggling the same way. And someone needs to let the surgical instructor know that after this module is over she will be getting laid off, they are no longer offering the surg tech program at that campus.
But shhhh, it's a secret.
