Technician (Current Employee) – London, ON – 29 May 2017
This job is only one day a week and part time. There is no room for advancement unless you have a degree and each year you are not guaranteed a job again. Pay was perfect for the job type. My supervisor was amazing and very supportive. It is my most fulfilling job I have.
Fun atmosphere in the classroom, grim and indifferent outside
Paramedic Student (Former Employee) – London, ON – 24 June 2017
The paramedic community needs to change their attitude about what it means to help a human being. That is, if they really want it to be recognized as a serious profession. They should know that most of the world, meaning everywhere outside of London Ontario, still does not think too much about "ambulance drivers."
It's an experience.
Too much down time, intermittent moments of dread, does not amount to anything truly significant
Student (Former Employee) – London, ON – 7 June 2017
Overall good faculty and help available when required. Fun classes. Books were a bit expensive and I felt some were a waste of money at times. Classes could've been coordinated better to have less breaks during the day as well.
Announcer/Talk Producer (Former Employee) – London, ON – 8 May 2017
106.9 The X was a student-run fully operational Radio Station. It was a great place to Learn. The setting was professional to a high standard but still welcoming. My 2 years on-air and producing Talk Content has given me experience beyond what is necessary to excel in any true industry job.
Peer Tutor (Current Employee) – London, ON – 2 May 2017

Experience in working with online teacher and opportunity to teach a course
Professor (Current Employee) – London, ON – 2 May 2017
Was able to work from home to review and evaluate the learning of the online students. Learned about alot from the students and how they utilized their time to learn about the course. Hard to give good feedback.
Work from home
Could not see the students to increase their knowledge and benefit from direct contact.
Great experience but very poor pay for work required
Professor (part-time) (Current Employee) – London, ON – 30 April 2017
In general this has been a great experience and great to have on my resume but is a literal dead end for further advancing my career at the college. This is not meant to be spiteful in anyway as the college did not force me to take this position but simply a means to prevent others from being taken advantage of like I was.
great experience and great staff to work with
very poor pay as a part time prof, the college ACTIVELY attempts to prevent staff from advancing past part time
Invigilator (Current Employee) – London, ON – 26 April 2017
A typical day would consist of arriving about 30 minutes before the exam period started in order to go get the proper exams and arrive at the designated classroom or gym. I would hand out exams and go over the rules to the students about academic misconduct and cheating. Once the exam started, I am responsible for walking around to make sure students do not have aids or anything that could be used to help them cheat while writing the exam. Once the exam is finished, I am responsible for collecting the exams and bringing them back to the head of the department. The hardest part of this job would be that if someone is cheating or looking around a lot, then I would have to keep a close eye on them. If I saw someone cheating off of some other student, then I would have to take their exam away and they would receive a zero. The most enjoyable part of this job would be interacting with other invigilators and learning how they enforce rules.
Promoter (Former Employee) – London, ON – 21 April 2017

Hospitality Porter (Current Employee) – London, ON – 2 March 2017
A typical day would be putting orders away, making sure all the employees have their stock, all garbage is collected up at each unit, picking up catering and delivering, cleaning deep fryers and back of the kitchen. The management here are hard workers they are always there when you need them. They have a lot of respect for their employees . The workplace culture is great get to work with friendly loving people who help out and make each day a fun day at work. There's nothing hard about the job just one of those jobs that you always have something to do non stop all day but I enjoy that kind of thing. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with my team and meeting new people everyday.
Lecturer (Former Employee) – London, ON – 16 January 2017
Fanshawe is not interested in quality teaching, at least in Health Sciences. Budget is their no.1 concern. They are quick to hire and fire, not based on performance, but whether you can fit their financial schemes. They have a very funny wage scale that goes up when you work between 5-12 hours/week. So they do everything to make sure you are below or above that, with no thought as to what effect that might have on their students.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – London, ON – 22 August 2016

Focus Group Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fanshawe College – 27 July 2016
I am currently working at Fanshawe College as a Focus Group Coordinator. I am on a part-time contract, therefore, I only work 24 hours per week. My typical day consists of me coming in and meeting with different departments about certain focus groups they want, for example, program reviews. After checking with the departments I start the process of organizing the groups by sending out reminder emails and mass invites. After conducting the groups I have to report back to my manager and give them updates about the group as well as the meeting notes. This type of research has proven to be very valuable for research purposes so there is definitely a need for it. I also help with research projects on the side. The hardest part of the job is that nobody has ever organized these focus groups successfully before so I don’t have anyone to give me advice as well as proper resources. The management is great and always helpful, however, because this is foreign territory it is hard for them to give me suggestions on how to improve---it is a lot of trial and error which can be frustrating. My coworkers are wonderful and always helpful, however, even though I am part of team I sometimes feel alone in my projects. I need to add to my experience and widen my career horizons.
