Supportive & purposeful workplace

Good support from the management. An inclusive culture and the supervisors are listening to concerns/matters. A supportive appointment for students to aid some expenses managed; thus, it is minimum wage.Quiet learning envirinment. Teaching/tutoring expands learning with both the consolidation of existing & new knowledge.

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.




Too many to list.

Productive and fun work place.

I really enjoy working at the gym at Selkirk College's Castlegar campus. It is a very enjoyable environment to work in and I find the tasks I am given to be fair and not out of my abilities. I am in charge of the weekly fitness challenges, as well as cleaning the weight room, and helping to organize events that are held at the gym (for example volleyball tournaments, dodgeball tournaments etc).

Wonderful Place to Work!

I enjoyed working at this job. My coworkers were wonderful, and there was always something to do. I learned many new skills and and was able to increase my knowledge about banquets and food service. I was part-time/casual and was able to work around a busy school schedule.

Productive and fun workplace

A friendly and nurturing workplace in the nursing laboratory. The instructors from the nursing department who uses the laboratory are very kind and considerate.

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.


Beautiful location, amazing colleagues and high wages.


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

An opportunity to work on campus

Selkirk College gives students an opportunity to work on campus. The administration gathered a team of students who like making videos and gave them a project to work on, which is great because it helps students to distract from their studying and just do what they like.
