Math Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 30 May 2016
I reinforced Mathematics concepts taught by Professors by hosting problem solving sessions. I enjoyed interacting with the students and designing class materials to improve student's grasp on the course material.
I had the oppurtunity to reinforce engineering course material in my mind, by teaching it to 1st, 2nd & 3rd year students.
Students exams, usually coincided with my exams. Marking exam papers took away from my preparation time.
Instructional Technology Coordiantor (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 December 2014
I have been working at Carleton university for several years. While I like the type of work I do, I do not like the management system. Most of the university departments lack qualified project managers. Money are being wasted on creating new projects with no sustainability planning or long term sight.The university is over staffed on the top management position but critically understaffed on the support services. Getting hired in a permanent position is almost impossible if you have no active connections to sneak you in. qualifications required are only on paper, but it who you know that gets you in regardless of qualification. And if you are part of minority group, then good luck getting a permanent job
Great benefits, work life balance, but no abilities to grow.
Assistant Director, Finance and Business Dev. (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 18 March 2016
Work starts at 9:00, until 5:00, normally I will stay until later. I have to come some weekends depending on the needs. I am able to do great workouts here. There is a lot of opportunities for professional development but the hardest part is the inability to grow since this is a medium size company.
Free gym, free university tuition, great pension plan
Student (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 29 May 2016
Carleton University is generally a tough place to study at for Engineering but most professors are nice and willing to teach you if youre willing to learn. Only issue really is that it can be overbearing as there is a lot of work to do.
Energy Analyst/Controls Technician (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 15 March 2016
Carleton has a nice work environment and the work load is very balanced. The work is exciting and everyday there are new challenges to deal with. However, the pay and benefit is not that great. Also, management may seem disorganized at times.
Spanish Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 8 January 2016
a typical day as a TA changed constantly, some days I had to read a lot essays and correct them and mark according to the professor guidelines previously given. I learned to better organise my time as, I learned to balance my school and work schedules. I also learned to be a bit more confident when talking to larger audiences, since I would occasionally talk to and supervise classes of 30 students The hardest part of the job was probably reading people's hand writing All the activities implemented for the learning of a foreign language can be fun and entertaining, they are also good ways of memorising concepts
