Great work place but only temporary work

Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I worked at Humber College as a contractor for less than a year

ProsYou will gain experience and knowledge of how the education industry is run on a daily basis and some knowledge of how web applications work. Not the best setting to gain Server experience as this place is locked down.

ConsNo career advancement b/c it's only temporary work and they bring in candidates during the college start dates in Aug-Sept and Dec-Jan.

An excellent college with innovative creative programs.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Humber College as a contractor for more than 8 years

ProsI have been given the freedom to develop the courses I teach, and the support to develop my skills as an instructor. As a result, my classes get very good reviews from students, which motivates me to update and improve the content in my courses every year.

ConsI am technically not an instructor, but a consultant, so payment can sometimes take a long time. This would not be the same experience for faculty.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep supporting and developing creative, cultural and technical programs.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I would work there again

Coordinator (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I worked at Humber College as a contractor for more than a year

ProsBetter than average pay for the industry, lots of opportunities once you are hired full-time. Excellent professional development provided. You can feel good about working for the best college in Ontario.

ConsLots of the jobs are contracts in the first two years of employment. If you are contract or Appendix D (replacing someone on leave) you can feel like a second class citizen. Some of the staff have been there a long time so don't seem all that motivated. As with most large organizations, change takes place at a snail's pace.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more flexible when considering candidates to fill vacancies.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
