Residence Chaperone Seasonal (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 16 May 2014
my typical day at work include two shift (morning and night). I was required to supervise students while they are transport to school. the night shift requires me to supervise students until they're curfew.
Because of these job, I have gained valuable leadership experiences as well as improve my skills in problem solving and relationship management.
My co-workers were friendly and great in all aspects
The hardest part of the job was organization. The schedule constantly changed which means I must extremely flexible in terms of availability
The most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunity to interact with people from all over the world.

Activities Advisor (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 11 January 2018
Money hungry management do not care about staff in the least which is evident by the turnover rate. Lost 17 teachers in one semester. Front line staff are underpaid, undervalued and overworked. You will not get any feedback, reviews, raises or anything like a professional workplace would provide - so if you're okay with that, then you'll be okay here. The kids are the best part. They are the only part that makes working at the school/business even close to remotely worthwhile. School has enough money to hire media team to make elaborate promotional videos but can not afford to pay their staff a livable wage. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
