    I have been working at Grant MacEwan College

    Pros

    Grant MacEwan is centrally located the campus is great to work in. The benefit package is quite good and the pension is great (LAPP).

    Cons

    There needs to be more attention paid to areas that are undergoing changes to ensure that the employees are not being over worked and have the proper support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more aware of their employees workloads especially during times of change and employment shortages.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Grant MacEwan College in April 2007.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted for interview via email. Confirmed by phone.
    Panel consisted of 7 people for a low level management position. Had the impression that most had little or nothing to do with the position or responsibilities at hand. Subordinates also on panel. Routine questions, lackluster atmosphere, main hirer seemed rushed, humourless, out of his depth. Toward the end a few jokes on my behalf seemed to lighten the mood. Interview last 45 minutes.
    Accepted the position after an initial lowball offer ($20, 000 than the highest paid staff that I would be reporting to me!). No orientation given just some photocopies of benefits plan. No probation updates and nothing acknowledged at the 9 month mark.
    Overall impression is one of poor HR policies and procedures, extremely unprofessional culture, out dated position responsibilities, irregular 8 year gaps between performance reviews, disorganized,
