Fun, functional, and collaborative work environment
Instructor (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 13 January 2018
VFS expects its knowledgeable faculty to progress with the industry at large, and to stay informed. Our department is structured to accommodate this, working around our independent projects via long-term part-time positions with flexible hours. The faculty and staff are knowledgeable, friendly and supportive, and the students - representing regions around the world - are amazing to work with. Only critique: it would be nice for more seasoned instructors to have the option of teaching full-time in future, with benefits.
Friendly staff and faculty, amazing students from around the world, opportunities to continue working and progressing in field
Few full-time positions for faculty, so limited benefit packages
Artist & Co-Programmer of Best Final Project (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 15 December 2017
En el campus de Game Design se tienen equipos de computo con equipos altamente avanzados para agilizar el desarrollo de software, las instalaciones son pequeñas pero suficientes, con cuarto de grabacion, conferencias, video, recreacion y videojuegos.
La gente que trabaja en la Vancounver Film School es amable y te reta a trabajar y sigo hablando con algunos aun despues de acabar mis estudios.
Buenas instalaciones, Buenos equipos, Personal amigable
Calle externa al campus es sucia comparado al resto de la ciudad
Vocal Teacher/ Accompanist (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 13 October 2015
My years at VFS were life-changing, and provided me with the opportunity to impart my passion of music, to many students. I was allowed the gift of personal growth, and guidance to re-shape my teaching style, and create with so many talented professionals. I had the very best co-workers, all of whom remain friends, and would return in a heartbeat.
a lower staff morale due to some curriculum changes.
International Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver – 17 March 2015
Being a sales representative on a salary, we were often asked to put in 100+ hour work weeks, work from home etc. It made providing a balanced life for my family quite difficult. The job itself was very fun, the atmosphere was great.
Administrative Assistant - Human Resources (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 20 October 2014
There is no 'typical' day at VFS. Every day provided new challenges in how to improve the student experience. Every staff contribution helps to keep VFS the "premier post-secondary entertainment arts institution and one of the most distinguished in the world."
Not much camaraderie, a lot of talk with no follow through. They hire and fire based on personality as apposed to professionalism and work ethics.
Operations (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 July 2013
No support from colleagues. You are expected to learn new things on your own. Upper management are elitist. If you don't have the same social standing (or, in this case an alternative life style) as the rest of the staff you will be looked down on and ostracized.
