Computer Technician (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 25 February 2019
In the 12 years I have worked at NAIT I love the challenges and the people I work with. I have learned alot including vendor warranty repairs and out of warranty work. I have also gained experience working in an organization.
Great perks including time off for Christmas paid vacation

Management boasts publicly how important student success and the student experience matters and how proud it is in the NAIT way. When in reality it is in full support of retaining older non-motivated and technologically out dated staff and the easy dismissal of younger motivated and advanced educators in order to make bottom line numbers look good to the government while asking for money to build needless buildings. It is sad to say that the days of letting staff go solely based on seniority is outdated and impractical in the type of work done at NAIT.
Horrible environment that allows management to bully staff with no consequences.
IT Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 August 2018
Overall, this could have been a great place to work, with great opportunities for growth. However, they turn a blind eye to abuse of employees by their managers, with repercussions if one speaks up about the abuse and bullying. Perhaps not all departments are this way, but the IT department is best to stay away from.
Android Instructor (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 July 2018
I've worked as a part-time instructor at NAIT for about a year and a half and it's been a good experience. The people are nice and friendly, the location is good, and the environment is nice to work in. Sometimes the classes you're scheduled to teach are cancelled for lack of enrollment, but you're informed of this a couple of days before the class is about to start.
Good Location, Nice people, Reasonable Pay
Parking, Security has to unlock your classes, Class start a little to early on the weekends for my liking
Computer Lab Supervisor (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 June 2018
I have been a part of NAIT for almost 6 years now and I have enjoyed every bit of it. I would like to keep working for NAIT and grow with it. Its the most positive workplace and I would recommend it to everybody.
Instructor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 April 2018
NAIT is a very political company there are large teams of people whose sole purpose is fund raising. The organization really has very little time for the people actually instructing. In some departments Instructors are hired for short term only. They are required to bring the courses up to date then the old timers take over to casually deliver the material written by others.
Communications Specialist (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 April 2018
The organization promotes internal collaboration, personal leadership and thinking out of the box and showing initiative, but at the end of the day, there are still many hoops to jump through and a lot of processes for anything - even the tiniest matters - to get approved. On the surface, it looks great - the vision statements, the training, etc. - but at the practical level, there's much fear, control and micro-managing. There's not a high calibre of trust in employees in the department, even for those who skilled professionals; it's really 'who you know' not what you do that is noticed.
Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 January 2018
It was very stressful work environment, with management being very hard on new employees with high expectations.
It was a very busy day in the office, there were many people with different cultures from staff to students.
The most enjoyable part of the job was able to assist students especially those that were from out of country. It felt rewarding to help them and see them smile when they feel like they are accomplishing their goals.
As Instructor at NAIT I came to find that dealing with students was not only beneficial for students to have a skilled instructor at their disposal but it was as equally beneficial for instructors to be able to teach and enjoy students and seeing the progress in their efforts.
Nait is a very up to date Institution with cutting edge technology with every program that they offer. The staff are all very professional and in tune with the students needs and very knowledgeable in their field. bringing practical experience to the classroom and applying the field with the classroom theory.
Nait is a very good place to work. It has a very high standard for safety of staff and students.
