Not a healthy environment
Activities Advisor (Ancien employé) –  Student Development13 août 2019
Over worked and underpaid. Student Development is in shambles.

Management/ supervisors/ coordinators lack maturity, professionalism and leadership and spend more time making bets than working. Instead they are given promotions. When bringing the behaviour of the supervisors up to the director, it is not taken seriously and told “she starts drama”. Management lacks transparency and thrives on gossip without talking to staff like professionals.
Known as the “special sauce” to the owner. A change in Management needs to be looked at because the turnaround rate is baffling and nothing is changing. Instead other departments are forced to take on our mismanagement (RLP).

Don’t buy the interview. Told you will go on trips to Bark Lake, New York, Ecuador, raptors court, etc, and you will never be put on them. For part time staff, you are told 20-25 hours a week but barely given that a month because they pick favourites.

Many staff have quit this past year because it is a toxic environment and are unhappy and all staff are applying for other jobs (including coordinators). More and more work will be piled on you with no compensation. The blame is put on the HR department but it isn’t HRs fault just management covering up.

Pros: benefits, RRSP package, students, 3$ lunches
Cons: supervisory staff, no training or feedback, uniforms

it was ok
Day Chaperone (Ancien employé) –  Hamilton, ON21 avril 2019
good part-time job, but as a day chap you're worked all over and hours are never consistent. I made a decent amount of money in the summer, but due to management alone, I would not return

Improving Workplace
Manager (Employé actuel) –  Ainsleywood27 mars 2019
The employees are nice. There have been a lot of upgrades to buidings which is good.

On snow days, employees get paid to stay home and if they work, they get paid time and a half each hour.

Really confusing org structure. Not sure who is in charge. Some things has everyone involved and other times hardly any.

The work schedule can be busier then a person can handle but it is definitely not boring.

The management try hard and seem appreciative. They are very nice and want to make time for people.

There are so many buildings that not all employees know each other. It has gotten better but there is still room to get better.

I would recommend it.
Points positifs
Days go fast, lots to keep you busy, nice people
Points négatifs
Intense work schedule, inconsistency

An outstanding workplace.
Manager (Employé actuel) –  Hamilton, ON19 mars 2019
CIC is an outstanding school. It is an excellent place to learn and grow. The total care education system is the best a school system has to offer its students, families and staff. Hard work, reliability, and a genuine student centered approach is valued and nurtured. With so many excellent departments there is room for all employees to continue to grow professionally and personally. Limitless opportunity. Executive and School leaders are fair, transparent , and have created a positive work culture.
Points positifs
Leadership opportunities, subsidized meals

Horrible management & elitist / entitled workplace
Manager (Ancien employé) –  Hamilton, ON21 février 2019
Good luck getting any kind of job advancement if you're not friends or know someone in upper management.

Nepotism and favouritism is rampant, management is saturated with this elitist / entitlement problem, where no one can do anything wrong especially the family rich students.

It's just a cash grab for the school

They will take your ideas then get rid of you for whatever reason they make up.

High turn over

Stay away, stay very far away
Points positifs
Good cafeteria lunch, benefits
Points négatifs
Everything else

Do not work here
House parent (Ancien employé) –  Hamilton, ON5 janvier 2019
Was employed there for two years. Stayed as long as I did to try and improve the life of the students but the priority of management is to try and milk as much money out of their parents while providing the students with sub standard care and education. Management actively punishes any attempt to help the students succeed. Management will promise voluptuous raises and benefits but will never deliver. It is very easy to get a job here because turnover is ridiculous but DO NOT take it!
Points positifs
Nothing
Points négatifs
Terrible management, low wages, lies from management

Do not expect to get looked after
Activities Instructor (Ancien employé) –  Hamilton, ON7 août 2018
The school is more like a business. The way the staff are treated by management is terrible, even if you have been at the school for a number of years. They will happily terminate your contract without warning just to make cut backs, and lie about the reasons of your termination. job security is very poor.
Points positifs
Good students
Points négatifs
lack of care for staff

fun but can be exhausted by the tense work schedule
Day Chaperone (Ancien employé) –  Hamilton, ON31 mars 2018
Overall a nice work experience.
Nice colleague, and work atmosphere.
The hardest part of this job is that you have to manage your own time and commute. Like I had one shift was 5 o'clock in the morning.
The campers age varies from primary school to high school. .

A good place to build your skills, shouldn't stay too long.
Residence Life Advisor (Employé actuel) –  Hamilton, ON11 mars 2018
I've enjoyed my time working at Columbia International College and have gotten to know many students quite well. I've learned to take on more of a leadership role and help students with things like future plans, the understanding of rules and respect and transitioning into a country like Canada. Workplace culture is overall okay however management likes to micromanage things when it can become unnecessary. Overall an interesting place to be but it's better to move on at some point due to management/salary.
Points positifs
Good students, food provided.
Points négatifs
Going between the building spread out around Hamilton

Going through a transistion
Teacher (Employé actuel) –  Hamilton, ON21 janvier 2018
I’ve had the opportunity to witness a positive change in the Management and leadership for the better. The school seems to be retaining the people who care about the students and work hard to make things better and finally having a review of those who’ve slid through under the radar all these years. I’m one who is for the positive changes in our school and residences. There has been a big change to improve the experiences for both staff and the students experience.
Points positifs
Subsidized staff meals and friendly colleagues
Points négatifs
I have to park and walk from another building to get to my classes
