Meaningful work

Indeed featured review

Working with motivated emerging career students is the bomb. The people who support the students are so positive. There is so much hope and potential of good things to come. It is the dream.


people and service


Pay, lack of career growth

Great staff, culture, support, benefits. Excellent unions who provide great support.

I enjoyed my position so much, I stayed in it for 27 years. I was very supported as technology changed, and my department grew. Camosun is a great employer for work/life balance (although this may vary a bit by manager), and this definitely helps to offset the average or slightly less than average pay. Understanding your collective agreement goes a long way towards a successful and supported career.

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.


Interurban has a great place for lunch.


Everything else.

Camosun College

Lots of opportunity however very limited movement between CUPE and CCFA. Wages are comparatively lower than other post secondary institutions. Excellent benefits.

Great Place to Work!

Wonderful, people, environment, students and colleagues. The down side of being a sessional instructor is there is no job security. I would definitely work here full time if the opportunity came up!

Advanced Systems and Technology, dedicated to students and staff, growing and innovative.

Temporary employment but great people and opportunity to learn. Very busy HR office, processing faculty and staff appointment documentation. Opportunities to meet with Managers of other departments on a wide variety of issues.

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.


Students will always be the highlight.


Administrative incompetence, poor advancement opportunities, stagnant culture

Enjoyed my time there

I made specialty coffees for a college cafeteria. I really enjoyed my job there but no room for advancement. Hourly wages at that time were minimum($8 per hour) and I had a family. I learned how to make really yummy coffees. Management was very supportive of each employees needs. Hardest part of job was trying to secure enough hours to make a living. Most enjoyable was each day meeting clients and fellow employees.


Learned how to make great coffees


Not enough hours
