Potential
There is potential for this college to be a wonderful workplace, however it generally falls short. Recruiting is a challenge which often leads to increased workload for those remaining. Management seems to thrive on working angles around policies and people, which leads to significant distrust. In fairness, it is a small college with limited budget. Where the challenge lies, in my opinion, NIC tries to offer more that it can support or provide. Core values are overwhelmingly non-existent in its efforts to provide everything.

Do not work here
This is not a good place to work. The new senior management team is worse than ever. Cronyism at the top level means that unqualified people are making the decisions and making significantly more than they should. Morale has never been worse and the toxic environment worsens is driving good people away.

great
you get paid to do your homework basically. Aside from making sure everyone left the studios there was no problems.its only evenings but its not a problem for most students, also not much hours but its decent pocket change for a student

Worst workplace
As someone who shelved a professional career and took a 50% pay cut to teach at NIC, I couldn't be more disappointed with my decision. Professional experience is rarely appreciated or valued by administrators and peers, who have no real-life experience in the field. Men in the trades are typically hired at the top of the pay scale while women are hired at the bottom. Like others have said, toxic barely sums up the work environment. It's much worse than that. The college administration's mandate is to keep as many contract faculty in unstable positions at the bottom of the pay scale as possible -- barely scraping by. Suggestions of becoming a regular employee are a misleading recruiting ploy. Keep in mind that the college let go of 30% of its faculty last year, which included some who had been teaching there for the last decade, plus nearly all of the contract faculty. I would describe my experience working at NIC as nothing short of horrific.

THE worst place to work
Looks good on the surface but this is a fiefdom run by one or two individuals who are completely self-interested and who will do anything to maintain power. The internal politics is never ending. Qualifications and performance mean absolutely nothing. While there are good people trying to bring this institution up to a respectable level, (instructors and admin) overall it is a truly TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT. Just check the levels of turnover and the amount of people who have left on stress leave. This is about the worst place to work in the Comox Valley (or anywhere) and really has no business as an accredited post secondary institution. Interesting to see that another well intentioned president is now leaving, in all likelihood run out by those wanting to grab even more power for themselves. Horrible, horrible place to work. Avoid at all costs.
