support staff (Former Employee) – Progress – 12 August 2017
The management in most departments are awful. They typically do not know how to treat staff members...the same staff members who do a majority of their work for them each day and are paid significantly less. I have heard horror stories of the School of Business management staff and how they treat their support staff and students. Nothing is managed well there. Local high school students do not want to go here and adult learners don't have much options to go part-time, so the programs are dying.
Mentor (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 2 August 2017
one of the best place to work as a student. there are several events that was organized by mentors, tutoring the students who need help. and working in a slow paced environment. meeting new students and helping them is one of the best experience.

Administrative Assistant to Director/Manager (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 23 June 2017
Helping students get registered in their English and GNED courses, It is hard having to turn students away if they come too late to register for their courses but they miss so much information that registering late hurts them more. I enjoy learning of the different countries these students come from.

Environmental Technologist Peer Tutor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 April 2017
Had the opportunity to work as a Peer Tutor and develop more as a person and share what I learned using different learning style via training. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people from different cultures and gaining positive feedback from the students I tutored.
Were willing to allow me time to work as a student.
Student advisor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 April 2017
They were very understanding and helpful with offering me opportunities as a student. As a student I had to dedicate most of my time to work but they understood. It was an on call basis and they weren't aggressive or invasive at all.
Although i am referring to school, there were many assignments that were directly related to specific job fields. The work to be completed had to be done as if you were doing it for an employer. For example, Environmental Site Assessments, Water testing, waste audits, Site compliance investigations, population counts and many more. The assignments and reports prepared me to be an environmental technologist in and outside the laboratory.
expensive, time consuming
it was difficult to juggle work, school, and sleep.
