Lead animator (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – October 7, 2015
The program is still rather fresh and hasn't gotten a lock on the best teaching method, I did leave the program with an understanding of the work environment and the various skill and programs used in the industry. With the coordinators changing the programs to best prepare and educate it students the experience i had will most likely be different then the student who came before and after me.

Wood Shop Technician (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – July 29, 2014
Just awesome. Great people. Positive, encouraging atmosphere. Start the day with a daily meeting to assign daily tasks, as determined by supervisor. I learned little, as I had all the skills required for all tasks asked of me. I mostly learned about college politics lol. The management was good, while there were stereotypical complaints, nothing dramatic happened. We had a fairly clear idea of what we needed to do within the college. My co-workers were good. Kept me going at a good rate. The hardest part was leaving. I knew I had too, but I didn't want too. However no long-term positions were available. The most enjoyable part was interacting with other departments. We all had our trade specific jokes we over played, but it was fun.
great people. occasional long breaks, free food. interesting events
part-time contracts, very few permanent positions available
