Innovative and collaborative workplace
I worked an innovative project which brought me many challenges, such as liaising with many departments, creating new processes, running a new Langara campus, and supporting more than 100 new students from September 2019 to March 2020.

Great place to work.
I was also taking classes so working there was a great way to continue my education. I felt management was a bit lax and communication stunted, overall I had a good experience.

Great management but pay could improve. A fun environment to work in.
Great management but pay could improve. A fun environment to work in.
A lot of contract work and few to no raises. HR or People and Culture can be difficult to deal with.

Good opportunity to develop your skills / Mostly independent work / Difficult to get 10% of students in a course to attend PSL sessions
The experience is rewarding because it allows people to develop their skills. A lot of the work is done independently. The most difficult part of the job is getting at least 10% of students in a course to attend Peer Supported Learning sessions.
Pros
Good opportunity to develop your skills
Cons
Mostly independent work

I had a positive experience as a TA at Langara. Though I'm sure one's experience may vary depending on the instructor you work for. The administrative staff is friendly.

awesome
I really enjoyed my time there. I would go to work in the afternoon and I would just have to make sure the studio was completely prepped for the first year students. I also stuck around in the class aiding students who needed help.
