Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 10 August 2017
Getting a chance to work or study in BCIT is pretty useful for your career. After graduation, you could apply for a job since you already have two year experience in your industry. Definitely worth it.
BCIT Peer Tutor (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 1 June 2017

Instructor Automation & Instrumentation (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 13 May 2017
Great place, never dull, but will suck you dry! Was great for the first fifteen years. After that, it was not so much fun. Imagine having your skill-set become obsolete every 5 to 8 years. Oh, try and keep up with Microsoft: started out with Version 1.0. What a waste of effort.

Switchboard Operator (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 29 October 2014
I would open the switchboard at 7:30am and direct callers to appropiate destinations. When the calls were down I would help the other departments that needed work done and that could be done at switchboard between calls. The co-workers were great it was like a family community. The hardest part of the job was when I retired and had to leave the company. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with the customers.
Student Plant Operator (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 7 October 2014
Be smart, helpful, go ahead. Working hard is always worth, just let me start because I need training any ways and sometimes experience doesn't mean you are smart. Math, Physic, Mechanic, chemistry and thermodynamic is the base. You got them you go up or do other things like politics and journalism which is not negative.
Mobile Crane Operator (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 August 2013
BCIT has a very professional environment and the work is rewarding. Project oriented, building a structure and a tank for Ironworker and Boilermaker Apprentices. Plenty of Coaching and Instructing students in Crane Safety and Rigging practices. The downside is 7 hour days and a sub-par wage schedule. Great opportunity for a young Operator who wishes to establish a long term career in the Lower Mainland

I loved the job, working with the students was very rewarding.
