Overall, the college does have a reasonable working environment and culture. That said, it has changed over a past few years...it may be view good by others and may also be viewed negatively by those who have been there for a long time.
I love working as a student ambassador. It gives a chance to meet new people. The job is not stressful at all. Management is great and truly cares about the way I feel about my work. We have a diverse culture which makes the job more fun and attractive.
Learning environment, teaching is fun when audiencce or students catch up informations.
Mechani Design Instructor, MET Students (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 3 January 2018
It is a very good place to work as everyday is new with new topics to discuss and transfer to the students. The Colleague discussion also demands to know everything that one talks about and hence a good motivation to know and master what we discuss. specially if the audience are from outside the college, preparing to make the information understandable by non-student audience is a great motivation.
As the payment is also competitive, it is good to focus on the job rather than complaining and demanding to raise and related things.
Always new, good to transfer knowledge, learn from students and colleague, learn from research results whether negative or positive, always busy of something new.
students level of understanding differ, deal with every student until they know the subject.

They have a good, competitive working environment which helps to increase the skills and knowledge of the person. Seniors are always in the support of junior which increase the confidence and gives the motivation.
Research Clerk (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 2 November 2017
Working as a student research clerk, I would say that my experience was very enriching and fulfilling. We had the chance to work flexible hours at home and on-campus which was great for receiving feedback about our work.
A temporary position allowing me to learn a new payroll system, meet great co-workers and participate in a dynamic department. Attention to detail, running reports and processing month-end third party pay.

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.
