Challenging and interesting instruction

I began instructing at the College in 2012 with no teaching experience, however I possessed a strong skill set with computers and a willingness to step outside my comfort zone and learn a new occupation. I began teaching with a seniors' computer class. Over the years more and more classes were added to my teaching schedule, which in many cases I completed online courses to bring my teaching skills up to date. I also prepared the training material to hand out to my students in order to ensure they had reference material at the end of classes. I was pleased to discover the enjoyment and ease of instructing, and creating all of the training material in a concise and easy to learn format.

Good experience

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.

College of the Rockies

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.

Pros

Friendly co-workers, College closed during Christmas break

Cons

Too unionized

Fair

I was exited to work at the college thinking that the establishment was a well know reputable place. After working there I réalisé that they are not as professional as I thought.

Union government job for the average mind

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
