Loved the environment i placed at. One on one with students was my style.
Although I loved the work i was doing, communication from the top end was never on the ball.

Information was always sketchy and not very clear.

My team lead at the time was trying his best to keep the team informed but even he was not sure on what was going on as CEO's were never clear.
Pros
Was a good work environment
Cons
Hard to get a raise

SAIT is a large institution and employee experience varies from department to department. My area, Alumni and Development is a positive and collaborative work environment.

I was a contractor for SAIT and came recommended, therefore an interview was not really required. I did a specific task for six months and then was not renewed. Overall I was able to perform my duties with minimal supervision and enough trust and respect to feel very productive.
Pros
Great work/life balance, working from home.
Cons
Management seemed to change, a backlog of work made things a bit stressful

SAIT is a very practical school that offers a lot of instructor support. Although supportive in my career, could maybe have a better transition from collage to career.

Very busy workplace, multitasking an asset, most enjoyable times was interaction with students and instructors. Gained a lot of knowledge on the workings of a post secondary institution.

I was working with a small team which was separate from the rest of SAIT which made it different experience from elsewhere on campus. It would have been a dream to stay, but budget cuts sent me packing. I hope to find another team that works together so well in a healthy workplace environment.

I loved working for the SAIT Calling Program. Each supervisor was incredibly accepting and nice. It helped expand my customer service skills and gave me the ability to talk to amazing alumni who love SAIT as well. The hardest part about the job was getting consistent donations from the alumni as not everyone can contribute. I loved working with everyone and having frequent group activities which helped motivate us for the calling shift.

HATE IT! THE WORST. STAY CLEAR. HUGE CUTS. NO JOB SECURITY. The SAIT budget has been cut down so bad that the School is slashing everything. All new worker have been let go. Old Sr. workers with no ambition to do better

This job was about to determine the footprint of oil industry in certain terrains, especially for municipalities. The aim was to warn about what oil industry had left in the terrain so how it should be used given the fact that those equipments and wells were there.
Pros
Easy to find
Cons
No payment

Everything else about this job is great. Unless you’re ok with being micromanaged to the point where you want to hang yourself. Even if students are happy, you need good knee pads to work there. Of course politics runs rampant there too.
