Always had a strong emphasis on internal workplace culture, the result of which is a strong team who share a common set of values. The people who work here are the atmosphere they create is nothing like anywhere else I have ever worked. Beyond the people who work here, the purpose that the company aspires to goes beyond money/profit. We don't get everything right, but there is a dedication to the primary purpose and an integrity to how we go about it.

Students are very willing to learn. Other faculty is willing to assist with LMS. Typically you can expect prep work and marking assignments to take approximately the same amount of time as the in-class teaching. Overall very enjoyable experience.
Pros
Great support from the Chair when needed
Cons
Nothing - all great

Rewarding but be ready to put in many hours of preparation and marking on your own time. Management very supportive. Recent or current clinical experience is an asset

If you had a good idea for new ground breaking teaching concepts, the college was open to entertaining it. The students were enthusiastic and the staff engaging. The administration is somewhat more concerned about insurance policies than education.

Very toxic environment, in particular, the Health Sciences Programs office (nickname is the dog pound). Union is only as strong as its membership, which is weak. No help for the members who actually do their jobs, protection for those who don’t.

Highly recommend Conestoga College as a place to work and study.
Left as very high paying job to work at the College as I felt it was time to start giving back to the next generation.

Work is satisfying in that you feel you are making a difference in someone's life in the long run.

Your student appraisal test doesn't matter, you can be a great teacher who gets results, but if the head of the department cares more about being the most liked, pack your things when the contract is up. There is no job security, everyone is playing the game.

So if your hope is to just be a great teacher, and help your students succeed, know that is only 1/2 your job here. The other half, is trying to keep it through high school drama.
