Server (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 8 June 2017
I love working for Red River College. The pay is great and the people are great to work for. The atmosphere is very friendly and energetic. The only downfall is this is a part time job and I only work once a month.
Listen and learn to instructors and participate and complete all projects assigned. In my time here, I learned a great deal about time management as there were a lot of assignment to complete in a short period of time.
Men's head coach of college soccer team (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 January 2017
The lead of the athletic department was never really in tune with his athletes. It was more about his growth career wise then it was about the programs and sporting events getting better. As a specialized job the pay was not congruent to what was needed for athletes at the college and the facilities and equipment are far outdated. Red river has the student base and technology to be a front runner in academics and athletics but puts very little value in growing at this point.
Administrative Assistant Program (Current Employee) – Notre-Dame, NB – 2 November 2016
This is where I obtained my education, so technically not a job. However I was impressed with the course content and many of the teachers. The lower scores for Salary/Job culture are based on my limited knowledge of those. RRCC has a good reputation though and I'm confident they treat their employees well.
Have spent my entire career teaching at Red River. Love the students, the staff and especially the work. I have instructed and designed courses in Human Resources Management for both Distance and Continuing Education.
The work would start, at about 06:30 or 18:30. Depending on shift. It was basically review the previous shifts activity. At the end of shift, you would let the on coming shift know of any issues or activity. As a casual there is little room to move. Lots of hours. But theses hours drop off. Management, was some what friendly. But they where always looking for ways to make life a bit harder for employees.
Security Services never closed - we were on duty 24/7. We rotated 12 hour shifts with two weeks on days and two weeks on nights. The officers on our teams were our brothers/sisters. The college staff were happy to see us and often sought us out for advice and help. When I left, there was a large shift in management happening, but everyone seemed to take it in stride. Management was always easy to approach and open to suggestions. The hardest part of the job was having to investigate staff and act like nothing was happening. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the staff and students - when someone needed a vehicle boosted, when we helped someone locate a lost item, when we could mediate a dispute to the satisfaction of all involved - those were the most enjoyable parts of the job.
We could bank our stat (Federal) holidays to use with vacation; sick time; excellent benefits
