    I have been working at Grant MacEwan College as a contractor

    Pros

    Great pay and a positive work environment.
    20 min commute from west end.
    Recurring seasonal contract

    Cons

    seasonal contract means 4 months unpaid downtime every summer.
    little professional development spent on staff considering it is an EDUCATIONAL institution.

    Advice to Management

    The sink or swim attitude of training is highly unprofessional and makes the front desk a perpetual rotating door regarding qualified staff.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Grant MacEwan College (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in April 2007.

    Interview

    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,
