CDI College has an excellent group of colleagues that I work with on a daily basis. Campus is respected and a pleasure to teach at. The challenge is limited and I personally require more of a challenge and working goals.

Administrative Assistant/Student Co-Ordinator (Former Employee), Calgary, ABFebruary 13, 2015
Pros: free lunches
Cons: cap on raises
A typical day at CDI College would be to greet students and newcomers to the office.
Maintain and create new files for students.
Maintain switchboard, take messages, forward incoming calls.
Administered Comp-Tia exams.
Administered Entrance Exams.
Organized meetings/lunches.
Ordering of office supplies.
Etc.

In my role of Director of First Impressions/Administrative Assistant, I learnt compassion, empathy,and patience for students who was undergoing problems at school or in their personal lives.

While working at the college I made many friends on the staff. It became an extended family feeling.

The hardest part of my job was watching students struggling with their assignments, or problems at home which would interfere with their studies and ultimately result in failure at school.

The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the students graduate!

Oil and Gas Administrative Instructor (Current Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 10, 2014
I have very much enjoyed working as an instructor at CDI College. I am passionate about personal growth and helping people attain their life goals.
My public speaking skills have improved vastly as well as customer service skills.
I enjoy each and every one of my co-workers and have always strove to help them, if they need it.
The most enjoyable part of my job would watching students graduate. I also loved the fact that, as I teach them, I too learn new things.

Intimate work environment, friendly, close to home.
Business and Soft Skills Instructor (Current Employee), Calgary, ABSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: location is close to home so the commute is minimal.
Cons: no opportunity for growth
Typically the work day consists of delivering required curriculum to various sized classes. The small class size provides the opportunity to provide students one-on-one training when required. The direct contact with the diverse student body provides experience with communication on a variety of levels. Management is relaxed and offers an open door policy which makes it easy to address any situations that arise. The campus employs a dozen or so other staff so it is very easy to get to know and work with co-workers. The hardest part of the job is delivering the course content in the short time frame allowed. Some courses are only 1 week in length and others only 2. Maintaining a level of student success during that period of time is difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning from the students.

Pros: students awards day
Cons: very long hours
A work place that ensembles everyone is working on their family business.

CDI College do stand on their mission. . . . "changing lives through education". . . . not only for the students but to their employees as well.

pressure sales
SALES REP/CAREER ADVISOR (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: dealing with clients who have real needs
Cons: pressure to sell overshadows the needs of a client
Unfortunately the pressure for sales overshadows proper customer service and the needs of a potential client, consequently service becomes very self centered as opposed to client centered, leaving client feeling like they are pressured to make a decision right there and then. No one wants to be pressured into buying, it takes finesse and empathy in this field to make it work for both company and the client, unfortunately most adviors/reps do not have proper skills to build trust and rapport, which is the FIRST step to any sales transaction.

Practical Nursing Instructor (Former Employee), CDI College WinnipegJuly 4, 2014
My co-workers and the students were the only reasons I would force myself to come to work each day. Yet in the end the work environment became so toxic that coming to work became a challenge. I would not recommend CDI College as a healthy work environment.
