Amazing place to work

A typical day involves taking classes, grading assignments and sitting for office hours. They provide professional development opportunities; the workplace culture is great.


good pay

Great coworkers, awful management

I heard there is a new management coming after I left and also the worker have unionsied. But during my work there I worked with so many great individuals that are working very hard. But there is no recognition from the management and the higher that goes the worst they get.

collaborative environment- dedicated faculty and staff-diverse community

My experience at Alexander College has been incredibly positive. The supportive and collaborative environment fostered a sense of belonging and allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. The dedicated faculty and staff were always willing to go the extra mile to ensure student success, and the diverse community enriched my perspective and understanding. I am grateful for the opportunities I had to contribute to the educational journey of the students and be part of such a vibrant and inspiring institution.

Friendly and supportive workplace

AC has many supportive and caring employees. I have enjoyed working with the staff and faculty over the last 3 years. I have never encountered a negative situation with anyone. I find AC a great place for new graduates who have a passion for working in post-secondary. There are many opportunities to grow within your department as well as other departments. I am truly grateful for the opportunities presented to me while I worked here - I for sure have built strong professional connections.

Good coworkers

My manager and coworkers were really nice, they understand you are student so the schedule is flexible. The college is small and it is not multicultural which is disappointing.

Limited opportunities for growth

Though this is a college that has grown very quickly in recent years, it is still a small college and therefore opportunities for professional growth are very limited. The average age and professional qualifications of incoming faculty and support staff has been dropping for years, so the college has become a great place for grad students to make some extra money for a couple of years and then leave. But it's not really an ideal place for someone looking to make a long-term teaching career or interested in opportunities for promotion in administration. If you care about students, you may be discouraged by the resources available to them. They built a nice new campus and yet there is no dedicated space to meet students for office hours. Staff are generally nice and helpful if you have questions or IT problems, and there are sincere efforts at team-building.


Friendly staff, easy to get lots of work, laid-back attitude to college policies


Low pay, crowded spaces, low academic abilities of students

Sales-oriented but collaborative and friendly environment.

A cheerful and warm workplace, with diversity and respect. The team was very friendly and open to helping. Need management's improvement but at least the institution is open to listening to suggestions and providing support.

Great place to work!

My position required frequent communication with the executive team, department heads, and most unit managers. It really feels like a cohesive and inclusive team. Growth and development are imbedded into the culture of Alexander College. Opportunities for advancement are available. When possible they promote from within. Great place to work!

Things change fast here but a lot of support

Pay is good and there is a great group of people and support teams to help you. However, you have to keep up with the constant changes that require a lot of modifications to how and what you teach. In addition, the lack of job security means that you never know where you are at as far as continuing contracts. I think they do this to keep everyone on their toes and competitive but I think the actual impact is more negative than they expect it to be. Not relaxing at all.

Great Atmosphere

I'm teaching online right now but I really feel connected to the college and my colleagues. Everyone works hard to keep staff, faculty and students connected and supported in their work and studies.

Productive and fun

I really enjoy working at Alexander College. The staff is very friendly and everyone gets along very well. I love the fact that we treat each other like family, it allows for a very pleasant working environment. I also appreciate all the effort that is put in to make all employees feel comfortable. As someone who have experienced unprofessional and unenjoyable working environments, Alexander College puts a smile on my face everyday so far!

Welcoming and supportive culture

Right from my first day on the job I was pleasantly surprised by the great culture of Alexander College staff and faculty. After many months, this is still the case - it is easy to feel like "part of the family". I would recommend Alexander College to anyone interested in working in post-secondary education; either through a teaching role or in an operations/administration role.

Some good some bad

Working as an instructor you had a decent amount of support and some good professional development opportunities. The students in the EAP program were mostly young Mainland Chinese kids who were not that interested in studying. However, the students in the higher EAP levels were better. Contract work, so it was tough to plan you life. But as an extra gig, it was pretty good.

not a good place to work

A lot of things don't make sense here. The pay is low with no increase. People who are not qualified get promoted. High turnover rate. I would avoid this place.


If the owner likes you, you get promoted even if you are underqualified


Low pay, no stability

It is okay.

You don't learn much working as a student worker. However, it provides steady income with minimum effort required while you study. Overall, I'd recommend

welcoming staff and growing school

When I started here all of the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The Vancouver Campus is in a great location but it's a bit smaller compared to the Burnaby one. I enjoy working here and alongside some great people. The student population seems to be growing and it would be great if there was more space for staff and students. Most students are international which can be both challenging and rewarding. I find that you have to be patient with them as many of them are new to Canada and need things explained.


people, free food, location


space, sometimes difficult students
