Head Technology Coordinator (Former Employee) – Whitehorse, YT – 1 February 2018
Working at Yukon college was a great and unique experience. The best part about the job was going to remote locations and learning about different first nations communities. The workplace was always full of new challenges but by having a support team we were able to handle any problem we faced.
Staff (Former Employee) – Whitehorse – 15 October 2017
It's a small institution, but mismanaged so it's hard to be a responsible and decent employee. Upper management sucks. Worst I've worked for. Pros: decent wages and benefits. Cons: soul sucking. If you like banging your head against a wall - this is the place for you.

A typical day is assisting Co-workers, Students and Occupants accomplish their tasks or give direction for their needs, Everyday we learn something new about the school history or course on how to approach people. the hardest part of the job is when exams are going on - Students and staff get stressed and a lot of anxiety going around, the most enjoyable is helping students with information they need to succeed,
courses you are interested are free up to 2500.00 paid per year
Worked here as a security guard and found it one of the worst places I've ever worked. Pay was good, but the senior management constantly micromanaged you and questioned your judgment. Lots of security problems on campus but they didn't like to admit it. You were put in a situation where you needed to call for police assistance, but, if you did, you were criticized for bringing in outside authorities because they wanted to deal with everything "in house."
Instructor (Current Employee) – Whitehorse – 29 September 2014
This was a great stepping stone for me. I learned how to teach, be more confident. My co-workers treated me fairly and equally. Hardest part of my job was learning to deal with conflict. Most enjoyable part of my job was influencing how people thought in a positive way.
