Amazing faculty and good pay but long hours and no job security

Selkirk College is a rural college serving the Kootenay region in British Columbia. It mainly focuses on providing hands-on training for trades and technical professions but it also offers a variety of university courses to students who wish to transfer to a university program after 2 years at Selkirk. The Castlegar Campus where I work is located at the meeting point of Columbia and Kootenay rivers, which offers breathtaking views! But the best part of working at this institution are the highly educated and cordial faculty members They help each other with warm simplicity and some special rural solidarity I have not seen during my teaching years in Toronto.

Pros

Beautiful location, amazing colleagues and high wages.

Cons

Long teaching hours with little room for preparation time and low job security.

If you are a manager, life is good. If you are not, life is not good.

Most people go too Selkirk to be trained for the job they really want elsewhere. There is no loyalty and if you are not in management then you are invisible to everyone but your peers.

Pros

None

Cons

Too many to list.
