I think job satisfaction varies depending on the area you are working in. Some schools/departments have a great experience. Other areas are a work in progress.

Not a great place, full of union mindset even in uppper management . Lot of cats who want to attack and are
Insecure . Lack of exposure in current employees and they are over employed . New and fresh ideas cannot be embraced and lack of emotional support .

Saskatchewan Polytechnic work culture is bad

They do not believe in education for their instructors, they do not protect their workers, they do not clean their buildings

Management is disorganized with little to no foresight. The organization is full of red tape, with an ineffective training program as upper management is over educated and under advised as to the scope of program provision being delivered at the organization. Work environment differs by department, but in general, after consultation with other department staff, work environment is stressful, and management favors electronics, nursing/ health technologies/ parts management programs. I wish I had not uprooted my life for this organization. They will do everything in their power to deceive you out of fair pay and benefits. constant relationship with union representation is essential to prevent wrong doing by management and HR.

This was a great place to have a work placement. I was still a student at the time, but the instructors would help give feedback when I needed it. I would recommend working here if you get the chance.

As a long term employee I felt like I should have meant more to them, but in the end I became invisible and meaningless.

I learned some skills and made some friends but I would never work there again.
Pros

While fun and exciting, with ample tie for self betterment and career advancement, the system is mired down with senior staff phoning it in and not adding information to course development, or student enrichment.
Pros
lots of autonomy and training
Cons
covering for tenured employee who phones it in

A typical for my position was visiting high schools across SK to educate prospective students about post-secondary options after graduation. Very fulfilling job for me. SK polytech has great benefits and a good working environment.
Pros
Freedom to create my day. Great benefits.
Cons
Multiple campuses across province which makes for inconsistency.

Cannot speak for entire organization, but for the Saskatoon Administrative Offices, no work/life balance despite being told that in the job interview. Morale very low. Very stressful and fast paced, often resulting in rude coworkers.

While being at Saskatchewan Polytechnical I was a student. The only work I did was improving my computer skills and any other skills I needed to work on. I enjoyed my experience and I am happy I was able to experience the oppurtunity. Worked on thinking skills in the mornings and the afternoon mostly consisted of computer skills. I also recieved another customer service certificate and strive to build my customer service skills.
Pros
building skills
Cons
not employment
