Wonderful students, interesting colleagues, terrible pay
I worked at Emily Carr as a Sessional Instructor for about 5 years, when they were situated on Granville Island. Students were some of the best I've ever had. Colleagues were supportive and often worked as collaborators. Facilities were a little old, but that's no doubt any longer the case since their move to Great Northern Way. The only downside was the salary. Sessional Instructors get no benefits and pay is the lowest of any school I've worked at in the area. That said, if you can get a full-time position there, it would probably be much better.

Diverse and challenging work place
The people at ECU are very nice and accepting.
The company benefits are the best I've ever seen.

The job itself was very challenging and I learned a lot.

Many changes are happening at this time; the campus just moved from Granville Island to Great Northern Way.
Pros

Probably could be a good place to work, maybe.
Unfortunately I cannot find anything good to say about working here. I cannot be complimentary nor can I be objective without using an expletive.
I would not recommend anyone talented take on contract work as it will not benefit your career.
Pros
Union some people like that.
Cons

Productive and friendly; process-oriented
The first thing I do is to check my clipboard for the day's list of activities, class and/or event including times, venue and the materials/equipment needed, and the desired/requested set-up. Then I collect everything on the list and deliver to each activity and complete the necessary set-ups. After which, I make a list of items delivered and indicate for pick-up. I do the pick-ups after each activity. Everything needs to be done in a timely manner. Everyday is not completely the same. I need to be ready for last minute changes/requests.

I have learned to prioritized depending on the scheduled time and importance of activity/event, I have done this a lot more effectively and efficiently.


The management and co-workers are friendly, supportive and a tight-knit. Because of their positive feedback and guidance, the work seems easier and less exhausting.


The hardest part of the job is when there are too many activities happening at once and I need ti finish all the set-ups and deliveries before they start. But I seem to finish everything before then and never once been late.


Apart from the positive environment, the best thing about this work is the continuous learning.
Pros
challenging, fun, never a dull day, respecting empoyer/colleagues, continuous learning
Cons
short hours
