Wasted 10 years of life

The owner, his wife and the other employees are facing discrimination. harassment, racism, unsafe working conditions lawsuits from their ex-employees. Horrible time working with that crooked, brainless husband-wife, and those yes man sycophants team members who are backstabbers, crooked, liars and cheaters. The nonsense wife would forcibly make to buy tea/coffee, lunches and subs from nearby restaurants and do the student exams to collect funding from the ministry. The management practicing unfair means to make admissions and false promises about high paying jobs and blackmailing for the references. The owner and the wife unproductive have almost no English skills and always hiding behind the computer watching inappropriate and horrible wife acts like the queen of Canada with no dressing sense (indecent) and has thick accents. The low life co-workers cheating for $200 and don't know basic English reading writing skills. This place should be shut down for good as they are robbing poor immigrants' futures and are enjoying luxurious lifestyles and the head office is a piece of joke supporting these scammers. The wife using the employees' vehicle for personal shopping at Walmart, carrying heavy stuff to her home and if u refuse the owner does not pay the salary. The owner thinks everyone is their slaves and comes to the office very rarely an expert in exploitations. STay far very far.

stressful

no benefits, stressful with a co-worker that is why I am trying to look for another job. Most of the employee who works in this company they just use this as an experience. They don't pay enough.

Head Office was a Disaster

Franchise based organization with a very unstable head office. Went through 3 CEOs while I was there. Each being worse than the next. Lack any values, all about bottom line, and do not have the best interest of their clients (students) in mind. The investors should really not be in the education sector.

I wouldn't work there again

The stress that is put on you and the attitude that is given to you is not worth working there. I felt bullied some days as one of the owners kept commenting on how I was not putting make up on.

A lot of talk but no action.

My job was to enroll students and help them while they were taking their classes. I loved working with the students, loved it, but it was tough to support them when we didn't have any support from management. It resulted in a very negative and stressful work environment. I was told to enroll students regardless of their admission test scores, something I was very uncomfortable doing as it was often people enrolling in medical programs. Many students waited months for practicums which delayed their graduation.

Pros

Students

Cons

Hard Working Team

The staff here are hard working. The management team at my location has changed dramatically since I started here and I can honestly say that a lot of effort is put forth from the whole team here, whether management or not. Sharing of ideas is encouraged and there are regular annual events for staff. Although my location offers a benefits program, my portion of the cost seems overly expensive for what we get. Another downside is that there hasn't been much in the way of cost of living increases for several years. I think there is opportunity here for people who are willing to work hard and who have the right skill sets. My favourite part about this company is that I get to help further people's education.

Pros

get to help people, friendly work environment, emphasis on "team work"

Cons

not the best compensation, industry has a negative stigma

there was no fun rooms

my day at work was amusing, it felt like home. my supervisor was so nice and gentle with me. i learned to be punctual, trustworthy.my manger was like a brother not a boss,my coworkers were there for me whenever i needed them. the hardest part of the job is when clients are not helping you enough. the enjoyable part of the job is when i achieve my goal and satisfy the clients

Pros

free chocolate when i make 60 clients or more

Cons

i used to work over time to reach my goal

Worked here as a Surveyor

The owner's of the Vancouver and Surrey locations are very supportive and energetic people. They have created a very family oriented type of business. I believe they have set up a structure and business that will help link people to skills, then to jobs. They work very hard with their career advisor to place their students into the workforce. The job itself, I was a surveyor. The schedule was very flexible, just like the school is designed. They allowed me to set a schedule that fit me, and my studies. I had to approach people and ask a few simple questions about whether or not they would be interested in learning some new skills, and if they would like better salaries/wages. I also had to enter data by hand into our questionnaire sheets, then call to book appointments for a sit down with the admissions director. If anyone is looking for a school that is very supportive in studies and in your work life, this is definitely a good choice. Just give the Vancouver and Surrey campus a call and book an appointment. Let them know Rich told you about them.
