Great Place to Work
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 April 2019
The College was a great place to work and they provided me with a great amount of responsibility. During my time with the College they developed a new 1,000,000.00 square foot campus in Downtown Edmonton and put me in charge of coordinating with the Consultants. Along with the new build requirements we focused on the requirements of Facilities and running a milt location college.

BSC and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 March 2019
Excellent university and programs. Most of the nursing instructors display that caring value that is vital for a nurse. That caring and health promoting value radiate in their teachings and how they run their class.

Work like a dog

Student Grader
Student Grader (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB24 August 2018
Not an ideal pay, but it is still fairly well for someone who corrects 60 assignments per week for 9 to 10 weeks. Professors are not strict with due dates, however they expect them to be done within a week, which is only fair for students
Pros
You work on your own time
Cons
pay

Great jobs for a start
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 December 2017
This was a great place to work in. The was a general environment of convivial environment with regular office lunches where we all congregated to share a meal and take a break from the rigorous of the office. My colleague were great with willingness to help and so was our leader. The work was enjoyable as it involve application os my greatest strengths-writing reviews. I got an opportunity to meet many people from different areas of concentration. The only flaw was extensive sitting in cubicles that made it look more of clerical than a professional academic jobs.
