Office Clerk (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 8 March 2018
Good place to work. Good benefits IF you get full-time. Tends to replace full-time staff with contract staff if a full-time person leaves. Makes it impossible for Durham College alumni to become anything higher than a Manager with only a Durham College diploma, other wise you need a University Degree.
ISL Volunteer (Current Employee) – Durham Region, ON – 24 December 2017
Durham College is a good place to get a fair education. Their Access and Support Centre at the Whitby Campus is beyond Satisfactory which is perfect. They service their students at their individual needs and not at the needs of the college as a whole.
Logistics and General Maintenance (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 3 December 2017
Typical day at work was always different, you never knew what exactly you would be doing when you first walked into work. All the people there really nice and just good people to work with on a daily basis.
INSTRUCTOR (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 13 November 2017
I had a lot of fun working under the college for this short time. I wish I could've done it for the whole summer. although it could've used a bit more organization though that has to do with advertising the courses offered.
Fire Prevention and Safety Assistant (volunteer) (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 29 August 2017
awesome place to work/volunteer. Manager/supervisors were very organized, provided enough training, open to answering question, and allowed you to freely express yourself. Overall it was a great experience.
PT-College Professor School of BITM (Current Employee) – Oshawa, On – 7 July 2017
Working here is a balance between 2 worlds and 2 generations. One you have the professional world where you work with people who all have the same goal; is for the student's to succeed. The other is the students who are not professional in anyway which can be frustrating because they think that they have to take responsibility.
A typical day is lecturing and then being in class for the students as they work on their assignments. After class if necessary hold office hours otherwise go back to main office, check in with the administration any updates necessary.
Other days is composed of marking, and prep work for the next class.
Network Administrator (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 19 April 2017
I would fix computers at the IT help desk. The work culture was a simple but fun one, where you enjoyed doing your job without management over your head. It helped me learn a lot about computers and how to apply my skills on other computer issues.
Microbiology lab preparation assistant (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 20 February 2017
This was a placement job in the microbiology laboratory or Durham college. Typical days consisted of cleaning glassware, and preparation of auger for classes. The Management was good and always clear about what was needed and training on how to properly prepare solutions was very thorough
