Student at Brock Univeristy - Amazing Opportunity for Growth
Marketing Delegate (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 4 March 2018
An amazing place to develop your skills. The faculty is open and supportive with regards to student events. The students that I work with to organize events are very thorough and organized. I became very close with a lot of different people here and never felt like "just a number".
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 29 January 2018
Lead multiple tutorials throughout the week teaching the basic fundamental Economic theories and concepts to first-year students. In additional, I hold office hours and midterm and exam reviews for all the students enrolled in the course where enrollment is typically 900 students. The department has a great workplace culture, it's quiet, respectful and the coworkers are easy to get along with .
Residence Don (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 24 January 2018
This job never really ends. Even on the nights you are not on call, if you are in the building, you are basically on call. You help your students, help other students, are a support system for other dons. I learned how to work with students, while being a student myself. You learn how to be understanding and have open conversations. You learn multiple techniques on how to deal with very serious situations. Management was not the most helpful. Aside from one of the managers, which I was not assigned to, it was very difficult to get my complaints and issues heard. Even within the building system, when this job was affecting my school work and daily life negatively, there was no support, despite that being what the job was about, supporting students during their time in residence at school. Workplace culture was a mix. My own floor of students was amazing, we had a very fun environment that was supportive and open. Some of my coworker were great to work with and improved the job. Others, including management, were difficult to work with and caused a difficult workplace environment. The hardest part of the job was balancing it with daily life and school. This was an almost 24/7 job leaving little time to balance. The best part of the job was working with the students and helping them succeed in school and in their personal life.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 12 January 2018
Required as a Masters student. A lot of prep and additional reading. Lots of marking, exam proctoring and holding office hours. Overall very rewarding and great pay for only 10 hours a week of work--although often times the prep would take you more than 10 hours with everything else included.
Lifeguard (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 2 January 2018
Brock is a friendly, approachable community that takes customer service and satisfaction very seriously. Brock is accepting of any culture. The most enjoyable part of working there is developing friendships.
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 2 September 2017
I found the pay to be fair and the experience to be educational- it gave me work experience teaching the students and running my seminars- it also gave me some opportunities to network although this is not easy as people come and go all the time as TA's
Great place to work, especially if you are a student.
Lifeguard/Aquatics Instructor (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 2 September 2017
The job that I took was more of a student job than a professional job, but this is considering that I was a university student at this time. Having this job has made it not only easier to pay for my tuition but also allowed me to improve my relations with other co-workers and also voice my opinions. Overall, this is a great place for students to get a job over the university years.
Librarian Assistant, pre-service library (IRC) (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 6 August 2017
I had a lot of fun in this position as I was able to work for those in the pre-service program before I was able to be in the program myself. I loved to organize resources and using creative items like the di-cut machine and laminator.
Student Supervisor (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 22 July 2017
The management at Brock University is great they really made coming into work everyday very fun and energizing because people enjoyed working for the university. The customer service aspect was really great I got to interact and speak with people I probably would have never met otherwise. The staff in the central equipment room was really upbeat and friendly with all of us being students aside from the supervisors common interest was a wonderful thing to have with co-workers. I really enjoyed my time there.
Physical Activity consultant-Teaching assistant (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 13 July 2017
As a student there i learned too much, specially through my connection and collaboration with people from different ethnical, cultural and educational backgrounds. I found myself becoming more disciplinary, more educated and of course open-minded getting many influences.
A typical day for this program really depends on how the client is feeling that day if happy client's compliance with instructions, if not clients can be withdrawn themselves from the activities and task given to them.
Learning occurs when learning about the client and their behaviors. Its' a learning process to be flexible of using items or surrounding that helps a client and their target function for the client.
The program is managed by two to three individuals that overall watch and advice the program. These people are great and fun to interact with besides the clients.
The workplace alone is all about the clients it's about the clients and giving them the best effort as we can.
The hardest part, overall I do not find it hard, its part a job that I chose to do.
Overall, I just enjoy what I do and give my best efforts.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 14 April 2017
It was fun to work at Brock. The community is very supportive and friendly.There is opportunity for advancement and growth. The hardest part of the job was spending more hours than was actually allotted in the contract.
