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.

Poor management

This is not the place I would recommend to a friend. They have a huge turnover. There’s a quite popular saying that goes: “Employees don’t quit their jobs, they quit their managers.” This is it.There is a lack of trust as management saying all the right things but not acting on it. Bad manager that causes employees to quit by micromanaging and creating a high stress environment. They don’t care if their employees are overworked; don’t appreciate employee’s hard work, no empathy, low emotional intelligence and low self-awareness.I worked with many amazing co-workers though.

Pros

Benefits, pension

Cons

Management

Great coworkers but weak leadership

Great coworkers, amazing benefits, no late nightsBUT leadership and management are like a pool of politicians. A lot of talking and not a lot of real action. Workload get trickled down by middle management. Tenure based pay rather than performance based pay. Stability and good pension for those looking for a gig to retire in. Would not recommend as an intelligent driven young candidate.

Many opportunities due to turnovers

In recent years, there has been many that have come and gone. Many long time employees have mentioned that the school has changes a lot and have not kept up with the times. I have not been with Langara for all that long but I have seen new faces every few months in my area alone. Some departments are really great to be a part of, whereas others have plenty of turnover. The org. seems to be unstable from senior management trickling downwards to other departments. There have been a number of new VPs and Deans in the last little while with many going though interim positions constantly. Certain departments are functioning on nepotism to advance. Of the post-secondary institutions out there, one of the higher paying for similar roles with standard extended benefits. Some employees can take a sick day or two every few weeks depending on their manager.

Pros

35 hour work week, little to no overtime, fortnight for some positions, 17 days vacation to start, plenty of sick days

Cons

high turnover in some departments, slow to progress, mature employee group, reluctant to use technology, paper and pencil focused, unions

fun instructors to work with

It is good to practice relative knowledge to your job. three hours for each section per week, so it is flexible to manage your time. Also, have to remember to submit the timesheet on time

Great place to work

If you are a student, this is great. SWAP work allows you to focus on your studies while still earning some cash on the side. For the work i am doing i can work from home or school, any time during the day, basically whenever i have time. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Pros

Very flexible work hours

Cons

max 20h per week, pay is on the low end

It is a great organization to work for

Things are okay at Langara, but the pay department takes for too long to get the instructors their pay. I only work on a part-time basis, so I don't have too much to say.

Pros

The manuals

Cons

The payment delays

Great, Hard-working, Passionate people

Met plenty of great people here. The hours were flexible and the pay was good. I was happy with the training and the managers were very different but equally cooperative.
