Excellent Faculty
Vocal Teacher/ Accompanist (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCOctober 13, 2015
Pros: Excellent
Cons: a lower staff morale due to some curriculum changes.
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.

Extremely fun place to work
International Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), VancouverMarch 17, 2015
Pros: bonus plans, incentive structures
Cons: Incredibly long hours
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.

An Exciting, New Challenge Every Day
Administrative Assistant - Human Resources (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCOctober 20, 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."

Job Culture
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, BCJuly 9, 2013
Pros: if you fit the social criteria, it can be fun.
Cons: bad training. untrustworthy management.
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.
