Good experience
chemistry lab assistant (Former Employee) –  Cranbrook, BC29 October 2017
I had a good time working here, even if it wasn't very long term employment. Pretty much my first work experience, and it was a great place to learn and build confidence.

Good place to work for those desiring a regular 8-4 job with benefits. Occasional opportunities to advance career but limited by the union. Mostly computer and admin work for unionized staff.

Friendly co-workers, College closed during Christmas break

Too unionized

Graphic Design and Marketing Technician (Former Employee) –  Cranbrook, BC23 July 2015
College of the Rockies is a steady employer for those who wish to follow instructions until they retire. The union hierarchy was unbearable when it came to technology. I revised processes that amounted a savings of over $40,000 per year, this secured my position and ensured no possibility of advancement as they tended to promote those that are incapable of action to management.

All the good managers in marketing left shortly after my departure.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Entrenched union culture
