New Horizons today learned why not to dick over instructors and to pay them well. On regular staff, they have one person. They have two other monthy-fee contractors- essentially, regular employees without benefits, etc. Then there's a handful of frequent contractors like myself.

Today, Dawn called in sick, when she was supposed to teach Level 2 Project to NHs largest client- Knoll's Atomic Power Laboratory. They scramble, trying to find someone to cover, even considering taking the Linux+ class I'm on and cancelling it, having me cover project, etc.


Suffice it to say, I politely disabused them of that notion, pointing out that I wouldn't be able to teach Project Lvl2 anyway- it's a bitch of a class, and KAPL has really high standards, plus, there's a few decision makers from other companies there.

For a while though, it looked like I was about to get the shit-end of the stick on that one though. Bastards.

Maybe now they'll realize that having a group of contractors and no regular employees is a bad thing; and maybe, if they offered reasonable salaries to instructors, they could _have_ regular employees.


I can't wait until this stream of classes I've got is over, high paying and all- save up some cash, and take it easy for a week or two, while trying to find some lower-stress regular employement.
  • Is SOOOOOOO glad I'm not there anymore.

    So, who'd they stick it to?

    • The students and Kelly Harris- they cancelled the class but gave them a live-lab type thing, with her proctoring, Poor girl.,
