There are better teaching opportunities with other colleges.
Instructor (Former Employee) – Penticton – 3 December 2016
I did not have a good experience working at OC (Penticton). My dept was not at all collegial and the dept head unwelcoming and unhelpful. The coordinator was detached. For the most part, I felt very excluded. There was an unfortunate problem with unprofessional behaviour, as well - some dept members negatively discussed each other, also sometimes with students. In general, there was a poor working atmosphere within my dept. Support staff were great - very helpful and friendly.
Salary and benefits are weak - comparable institutions pay better and are more professional.
Great support staff, buildings are very functional & well maintained, I enjoyed working with adult students.
Salary is below industry average; lacks in collegiality, cooperation & support.
