extremely hard to get a fulltime position anywhere unless you know someone
Technology Support Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB28 August 2019
try not to show how really skilled you are as the seniors do not like being shown up.
Dead weight everywhere and so its an expensive payroll. That's why tuition increases every year
high paying union job with zero fulltime opportunity for over a year.
extremely hard to get a fulltime position here unless you know someone that already works there.
Pros
very good benefits and wages
Cons
extremely hard to get a fulltime position anywhere unless you know someone

Working as a Lab Helper is working hard
Lab Helper (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 October 2018
Working at MacEwan University is tough. No work-life balance, minimum wage, and you end up doing all the work for the professors. Great people and environment, just horrible work-life and wage.
Pros
Get paid
Cons
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

Productive and educative workplace
lab monitor/book shlever (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 June 2014
Productive and educative workplace. My supervisors were very helpfull, as i able to gain valuable skills from them for example organisation and time management.
The hardest part of my job was standing for extended hours while shelving books.
I enjoyed the interactions i had with my collegues and supervisors at the workplace, it was a friendly and hospitable vibe

Job Culture
Top-heavy, imbalanced organizational structure; lack of leadership and effective performance management
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 February 2014
A very top-heavy, protectionist organizational culture with myriad, redundant levels of upper management, few of which seem to take an active role in implementing recommendations, changes or suggestions. Upper management/leadership also seem reluctant to become involved with performance management, coaching or helping subordinates develop a clear career path. Divergent views, organizational change and conflicting messages create ambiguity and a culture of fear and uncertainty among low- and mid-level employees. This could be minimized were leadership to take a proactive approach to employee engagement, employee recognition, and internal communications

Great benefits but, depending on the manager, difficult to determine the correct or appropriate paths to professional development. HORRIBLE disability management and support for/accommodation of employee with disabilities/impairments.
Pros
Social committee, organizational development day with keynotes
Cons
HORRIBLE disability management and support for employees with disabilities/impairments.
