Practicum (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – July 24, 2015
It was part of the school class to graduate. I enjoyed working and my manger was very impressed with my improvement. I mostly worked on excel file of how many vacation day had and how many they took. I was just keeping them up to date.
Instructor (Former Employee) – School of Construction – June 19, 2015
An overall positive experience. Unfortunately my contract expired and there were no further opportunities that I qualified for. They are working at creating a positive work culture for all people and the facilities are top notch. I'd return again if the opportunity arose.
Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – July 16, 2014
Taking the Petroleum Land Administration course at SAIT was the best oppertuinty I have taken. Spending the last four years as a student athlete I have moved around and taken several different classes and finally I found the job that suits my abilities and exceeds my skill levels. Being a Volleyball player has taught me some amazing skills in the workplace and in the real world. I have acquired team building skills, competitve, hardworking, personable skills. All applying in the Oil & Gas Industry.
hands on day-to-day knowledge of land administration
Not sure if SAIT has a quota for hiring SAIT graduates in order for them to have numbers that prove they do hire them and then in a couple of days "off-load' them due to unspecified reasons but this organization does not care about their employees and new hires. In addition to no support from management there is absolutely no direction and training involved for new hires, this is a great example of how an organization and its management sets people up for failure.
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – May 2, 2014
My experience working at SAIT was the best work experience I have ever had. I don't view my role at SAIT as work - I view it as part of my career. I enjoy working at SAIT because I am pushed to my limits, by limits I mean I am given the opportunity to utilize my skills and successfully perform with the support of our management team.
my boss was very motivational, inspiring, and wise. i enjoyed the work environment and culture of our department.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – March 27, 2014
An amazing place to work with no shortage of talented people. They also treat you like a human being and understand if you need support. The campus also has frequent events that you are encouraged to attend.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – September 18, 2013
I was responsible in providing customer service to customers who wanted to either purchase tickets or answering questions and directing customers to available parking spots.
I learned how to handle transactions in a fast paced environment and be able to think on my feet in order to provide answers to customers.
My manager was a very relaxed individual who didn't like to stress his employees for no reason, we got along very well.
Me and all my co-workers became friends because we get to spend a lot of time with each other on the job and we got to know each other very well.
The hardest part of the job is when customers arrive late to the show and I had to sell tickets as fast as possible in order for them to be able to catch the show and not be late. Standing outside in the cold directing traffic was also one of the hardest parts of this position.
The most enjoyable part is the fact that once we get everyone into the shows, then we have couple hours break while the shows is going..we got to hang out as co-workers as well as learn something else during that free time.
