University of Calgary Employee Review

Sessional Instructor

Underpaid for the amount of work you do. You receive no benefits. Only worth it if you want to teach to gain experience and add it on your resume. ...

I love the team, but the pay kinda sucks

I’ve been making the exact same amount of money since I started in 2018. The team is amazing and I get to work from home though so I don’t complain. I do work at quite a few remote teaching positions and while U of C pays the least of them all, I have the best work culture. In my opinion, that’s worth more than money, but it is something U of C should consider adjusting.


Amazing management team

Great teammates, poor management, contract work

Too much talk on website about being inclusive but in reality, a totally different experience for racialized employees on the team I was in. So many contract positions, the team was like a revolving door




Contract work, low pay, poor benefits (e.g$250 for vision every 2 years), culture
