productive and fun
Most of the time it is really quiet. Sometimes you might need to answer some phone calls and in-person inquiries. A great opportunity to gain some experience in equipment installed in the classroom
developer in Halifax, NS

pay Scale is not worth, survival is dificult
pros: Good work EnvironmentLess meetingGiven a task and once complete, show a demo. Good benefits, but not worth if you are not paid enough. Cons: Salary pay is severely underrated. The salary they pay is not worth survival, if you have a family you have to do two jobs to make sure you meets your ends. Due to salary and other Needs, environment and work becomes overloaded. Management is not worth, if you report to 2 managers. Probation is too long, No Job Security. You are evaluated multiple times every week during probation which demotivates employees to quit earlierToo Much is expected within one month of Joining, to be running like a horse which is not possible if you work in big project. Legacy Coding standards.Making real hard for new Employees to stay and have a Job stability, unwillingness to change coding practices. Most Employees working there are way too old since 2000 and no progress has been made. so all in All stay away unless you get good Salary package which is basically an unrealistic dream.
Administration in Halifax, NS
on 11 April 2022
Disappointing at best
Unsupportive management who are only out for themselves. Will take credit for work that you do, and are not supportive towards advancing your career, only their own
Custodian/Janitor in Halifax, NS
on 22 March 2022
I worked in Custodial services. Great co-workers. Multicultural vibe. .
The work is often busy, especially in summer months if you work in residence. Great atmosphere. Usually friendly staff, co-workers and students. Fun atmosphere. Many campuses, many employees.
