Malpractice

Toxic culture, new hires untenured (called Non-Regular) are treated HORRIBLY. They will use you, wear you out, hold out the hope of job security, not likely to come, in the meantime you will pick up any course they throw at you, unsupervised, work evenings and summers, make a portion of the pay of your Regular colleagues, for the same work, and no benefits or job security.

Pros

Interurban has a great place for lunch.

Cons

Everything else.

Great workplace with good benefits

Overall a good sense of community and services. A typical day involved answering emails, going to meetings, and interfacing with instructors, staff and students. I learned important time management skills there along with technical elements of the servers. The culture is positive, driven, but supportive. The hardest part of the job was multi-tasking when multiple clients were needing support. The most enjoyable part of the job was the community.

Slow paced, low pay but job security is high

Good place to work, slow paced but culture is fine, coworkers are cool. The projects vary, at times things can be very slow, other times you can have a project to work on.

Worked there for years.Beginning was good older culture.

Quality of work satisfaction diminished after working there a number of years. As chairs, deans and administrators came and went the culture became more hostile. Very little appreciation of experienced teachers and a generally ageist attitude. I appreciated that a union was in place to help defend faculty against unfair against unfair

Productive and ever changing workplace

- Always on the go making sure everything is set up and ready for each sporting event. I learned to work as a team and to adapt to situations and take initiative. My manager was awesome and gave me what i needed to succeed and trusted me with various roles/tasks. Hardest part of the job was being patient during the lull of the job. The most enjoyable part was having freedom to make decisions and teaching other people.

Great work community

It's a great group of people who are poorly managed. The management team is constantly getting scrapped and rebuilt, but they are never address the core problems

Productive, active and social environment.

I love working in a group with individuals that had similar objectives as mine. Multitasking was an asset, order, responsibility, social interactions, and overall fun, enjoyable workplace and team members.

Terrible labour relations

Sadly, a decade of under-funding of public education has gutted this college like so many other institutions in the province. The result includes an administration that is perpetually at war with the unions. The grievances pile to the sky while morale sinks. Teaching excellence is paid lip-service, but there is no accountability other than in the counting of beans to balance budgets. Students deserve far better. Tone deaf administration confuses an archaic and authoritarian management style with progressive and creative leadership.

Pros

Students will always be the highlight.

Cons

Administrative incompetence, poor advancement opportunities, stagnant culture
