From making edits, and designs for the School books for the program, and traveling to meetings with other schools promoting the program, as well as going to events to promote program. took some training to become a facilitator, and learned new graphic design techniques. (created posters, cards, etc.) the hardest part was meeting deadlines on a tight schedule, but was always the most enjoyable when a project was complete.

Easy job, great projects, with terrible management
Assistant Researcher (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 March 2017
Between genuinely abusive supervisors, and exploitative pay schemes, it's hard to enjoy coming into work. The projects can be meaningful and despite any number of weekly yelling at you 'meetings' it is impossible to be fired.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 March 2017
Because I was only a volunteer, there's really no salary or benefits but you get free food sometimes. Everyone was supportive and tries to help you any way they can. There weren't much commitments until near Orientation Day.
Very lively work environment, amazing team and management

Amazing team environment. Day starts with team stand-ups and everybody feels like extension to one integral unit. There is transparency and accountability and project are tracked effectively to meet budget and deadlines.
Training Support Analyst (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 February 2017
A typical day for me includes working with a team but having the ability to complete most job tasks individually. I get to do both administrative and eLearning type work. It can be a very fast paced environment depending on the time of year.
Instructor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 January 2017
by having a sign language interpreter for staff meetings and events. Hardest is they do not have accessible equipment for me to make phone calls. There are available equipment out there but no money to cover the cost of installing or buying the equipment.
love working with enthusiastic students but my chairperson has very limited knowledge on what is needed for the course in American Sign Language. I was evaluated by a person with no signing background and felt it wasn't fair to be evaluated. They should be hiring a person with a background in screening my skills in Sign Language to give fair evaluation.
Overall my experience working with them was mostly positive.
