Great employment opportunity in a union environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked there for two years and was pleased with the role. My position was full time all year so stable. Staff were great to work with and all were supportive. Sr. Management changed while I was there but did not have any major changes during my term.I enjoyed my time there but left for an advancement opportunity in the private sector.

Pros

Cafeteria and some opportunities to utilize the various facilities such as automotive bays

Cons

Stable employment but some positions are seasonal.

Nothing stood out

Manager initially was encouraging to work for however that changed when he came back from holidays. The working conditions rapidly deteriorated and became hostile.

Women were 2faced

I found it sort of back stabbing, I worked for two weeks one Christmas and spent time in the summer working there as well so when I responded A few times to a call from the college at Christmas time, she claimed to have no idea who would be calling me from that number.

Interesting work experience & great colleagues!

I found this to be an interesting experience and it gave me the opportunity to work in post-secondary education. I enjoyed working with the people I worked with at the campus, but don't think I fit into the image of a typical college instructor. The position I was working in was a temporary contract position and I was not able to find another permanent position with the college after my contract was completed.

Very casual place to work

Information regarding availability of courses offered is not up to date. Staff are helpful. Library is sparse for resources. Hours are not user friendly - as they close the site at 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. Information and updates are not shared with the community. Being a multi-site educational institution - the four campuses are not in reliable communication.

Pros

Comfortable environment

Cons

Low salary

overall good and simple work

It is a really very good to work at the college residence. There is not much work up there. I required to move in new comers at the residence and also to check out them when their contract gets done.

I loved the student interaction and the teaching.

I was a temporary worker. I loved teaching and interacting with the students. Courses were scheduled but only went ahead if there were enough students. This made it difficult to schedule other activities.

Pros

students and keeping up to date with technology and software

Cons

unpredictable schedule
