Clerk Typist III (Current Employee) –  St. John's, NL18 October 2018
Current position: A typical day at work involves every day clerical duties. Most of the work is very repetitive.

I have learned how to use company software, improved skills in Microsoft office programs, and have experience with working as a team.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the wonderful people in the office.
Pros
Excellent Benefits
Cons
Difficult to advance in the company

excellent compensation
Faculty, Language Studies & Academics (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL17 April 2018
Worked as Faculty and went overseas for the excellent salary and overall benefits package. Workload was sometimes heavy but manageable. Downside was the management from Newfoundland and too much nepotism.

Good pay, but not good hours
Resource Facilitator (Current Employee) –  St. John's, NL4 April 2018
Work at College of the North Atlantic is uncertain and not secure for most. Contracts are often offered for only short periods of time. It does pay well and have fairly good benefits. Management are excellent and care for the employees.

A good starting off point for trying out overseas work
Instructor (Former Employee) –  QA5 June 2017
Good points: proximity for European and Asian travel, the salary is ok (although it has stayed the same but decreased steadily in value over the last few years with changes in currencies), a lot of people have great schedules allowing for excellent work/home balance. Bad points: no job security, overall disorganization, employer/employee relations are not very positive, no wage increases in over ten years, accommodations leave something to be desired, and the school for employee's children doesn't have a great reputation.

Great School
Tutor (Former Employee) –  Placentia, NL16 May 2018
Great School. Instructors are knowledgeable for the most part. The shop areas are a complete disaster because everyone is too good too sweep. The tool crib looks like someone let off a hand grenade.

Great group of co-workers with opportunity to interact with a diverse group of students!
Instructor - OTT (Current Employee) –  St. John's, NL14 September 2016
A typical day at work was getting in to get the class projects organized prior to student arrival.Instructing individuals with varied abilities the proper procedures to ensure safe handling and finished product were priority.My management gave me ample time and resources to accomplish this. My co-workers were all helpful in any way needed. The hardest part of my job was not seeing a student applying his or herself when I knew they could! The most enjoyable part was at the end of the block they students passed and thanked me for helping them through the process!
Pros
Good work hours!
Cons
Lower than industry pay scale.

Chemistry Instructional Assistant / ABE (Former Employee) –  Labrador, Canada20 February 2015
Generally an interesting and focused work environment. Management was good and encouraged teachers to give of their best, co-workers were very friendly and accommodating. I leaned to adapt in different environments but the hardest part was the winter time, the cold temperatures out in Labrador. The best part was having a totally different setting to live and work and learn new things and new people.
Pros
Got to travel
Cons
Very cold

awesome place to work
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Stephenville, NL26 November 2014
This was an awesome experience. I completed my four week work term at this place and would highly recommend this as a great place to work. Unfortunately, they were not hiring at the time I completed this work term. While there I worked in the accounts payable department and found this to be a very fast paced area. I enjoyed every minute of it.
