Sit down job that allows for getting personal work done
Program Assistant (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONDecember 25, 2012
Pros: reasonably light work load, good co-workers
Cons: bad hours, too few hours
Because so few students ever seem to actual come for assistance, it's easy to just do my own homework or side projects and help advance my own ends. In my free time on the job, I've worked on producing a particle system that has turned into a visual representation of mathematical formulas. When a student does require assistance, however, I'm there to – more... help them and put all my work on the side until that student is assisted. – less

Interesting place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONOctober 2, 2012
Pros: lots of new ideas.
Cons: parking is difficult.
Great place to work. Fun seeing so many people learning new trades and pursuing their futures. Hardest part of the job is finding a place to work. Most enjoyable part of the job is eating at the school of cooking, having massage at the health centre and getting your hair done at the hairdressing school!

A rewarding job assisting students and faculty in a friendly environment.
Retail Sales Clerk (Former Employee), Ottawa, OntarioMarch 23, 2012
Pros: employee discount
Cons: the late hours
Typical day at work I would assist customers in finding their textbooks and taking payment. I learned the series of textbooks which were required for courses at different levels, more interesting was textbooks verses e-books or applia/lyrx applications for several educational programs. Management assisted in explaining to me the various learning methods – more... which the students and faculty require. The hardest part of the job was learning which material was required for the courses the student was registered in. The most enjoyable part of my job was trying to help the customer save money when purchasing material required for their course. – less

Interesting and essential lab, in an exciting and pro-active college.
Language Lab Monitor (Former Employee), Language Lab B453January 23, 2013
Pros: meeting lots of interesting people was exciting.
Cons: it was only part-time work, and i would have liked to have been there longer.
The language lab in Algonquin College is an organized learning zone, where foreign students come to learn English as a second language.
My job included welcoming the students, and teachers, into the lab each day, directing them to the allocated area where they were to work. I worked as part of a team ensuring that each area was organized, clean and – more... tidy, and ready for use each morning. I assisted students in the use of the software, and answered any questions, or solved any problems they may have had whilst using the facilities in the lab.
Teachers used our facilities to obtain textbooks on a daily basis, and the library was maintained by using a catalog system, to keep track of the books.
I enjoy interaction with people, and found this to be extremely rewarding work. – less
