Canadian Culture Instructor (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 February 2017
CCIS is an immigration society that helps refugee families to give them a comfortable environment in Canada. My typical activities with the family is to teach them about the Canadian culture and the language. I visit them every week and for 2 hours and assist them with any extra help they require to settle down.

Weak and lazy managers!! NOT a good place to work.
Counsellor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 July 2016
Great Organisation with lots of good ideas. Unfortunately, lack of professional management and unclear business goals threaten to sink this company. The work environment is UNHEALTHY and there are always plenty of reasons not to take a decision, reasons to wait for more information, more options, more opinions, (always managers opinion). Managers are the last to arrive in the mid-morning and the first to leave in the afternoon...Of course, with such incompetency in the middle management team they are bias against honesty. If you are looking for a place to grow professionally where your leaders are likeable, understand your needs, can authentically motivate people and know how to energize a workplace culture to generate the best results for the organization, keep looking for it because THIS IS NOT THE PLACE.
Pros
Good benefits(paid by you) OK Salary, lots of clients-always busy, variety.
Cons

Disappointed environment and management
Cultural broker (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 November 2015

Great balance work and life
Unfortunately poor management results in inefficient work rate
I worked for two years and I'm done with the unprofessionals there
The way they treat new comers and refugees are involving some discrimination.

Unprofessional, poor management

Contract jobs!!
Vocational Instructor (Former Employee) –  Calgary26 March 2013
I would like to have had more job security than I had while teaching there. I did two contracts at CCIS, but there was a considerable time delay between them. Further, they did not submit Employment Insurance deductions, as they were obligated to do. This resulted in an extra long waiting period for myself while the EI people collected these monies that CCIS should have deducted (by law) and remitted to the government after I was given a lay off.
Pros
salary was good.
Cons
the curriculum development involved a lot of personal time and endeavour.

Program Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 May 2012
Dealing with immigrants and assisting in finding employment as well as integration into Canadian culture.
Great place to work at.
Approachable managers
Hardest part of the job is not being able to place internationally trained professionals into their desired fields of employment.
The most enjoyable part is international recruitment and selection
