CYC Placement Student (Former Employee) – Ottawa East, ON – 14 November 2017
I did a placement in an elementary school as part of my program at Algonquin College and it was probably the most rewarding thing I could have gotten out of the schooling experience in my few years at the Gonq.
Lecturer (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 15 February 2017
Good if you are full time. Part-timers will have difficulty progressing. There is also a thing called partial load which is the case when you get more than 8 hr per week teaching. That will make you more but still not much.
Lots of learning on the job but altogether satisfying.
Part-time Professor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 18 January 2017
The resources available for new staff could be improved (more support, guidance etc) especially for new courses and programs. Overall it was a good environment and I enjoyed the experience of teaching.

Very nice people to work with, professional atmosphere, many opportunities to advance within the department. Very nice to work closely with colleagues and students within clinic.

Faculty Member and Instructor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 25 August 2016
The students are awesome and very keen to learn as much as they can. They love multi media presentations and plenty of contact time with the available instructors. Part time staff are required to sign new contracts every term so there is not job security. There are more part time instructors than full time instructors as a cost saving measure.

Algonquin College in the Ottawa Valley provides excellent programs, leading to opportunities, for those seeking professions in market research and business intelligence. Their MRBI Program is well organized, with experienced professors and instructors, who have much to teach. Better work life balance. Supportive senior management. Good Salary.
I overall like the job very much as I like to help other students who are having difficulty in the particular subject
Peer Tutor (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 15 June 2016
I loved the time I spend tutoring in the college, which also teaches me a lot about the job. It also helps me a lot about getting out of the problem, which students find hard to overcome and some techniques to fully understand the concept.
As you help or sometime teach other students, you also get the clear idea of the concept you are helping your student learn.
I wasn't able to earn much because of the shortage of students interested in getting a peer tutor.
Peer Tutor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 14 May 2016
A typical day is fun and rewarding at the college, i learned a lot about work environment and working under stress. The management was supportive and friendly. the co-workers were okay. the hardest part of the job was dealing with different cultural backgrounds. The most enjoyable part of my job was the creativity when dealing with a challenging task.
Employee (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 8 March 2016
Employment at Algonquin College can be a roller coaster. The College provides an excellent compensation and benefits package, as well as providing flexibility and good work life balance. Unfortunately to counter this is a cultural that can be divisive and some what combative between different groups. There is also a significant bureaucracy with a veritable warehouse of red tape. The cultural and bureaucracy can be challenging especially for younger change hunger employees.
Overall the College scores just above the middle of the road because of the contradicting aspects. Cultural Improvement could take this employer to the top.
Great Pay and Benefits, Course discounts, Gym Discounts
