An intersting workplace with juniors having the same questions once I had.
Peer Tutor (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 13, 2016
Pros: Helping Juniors
A typical day at work included helping students with questions. I have learned how to explain complex topics by making them simple and giving demonstrations. Hardest part of the job would be to help a confused student and also it is the most enjoyable part of the job to be able to clear confusion of the same student over a topic.

The day consisted of helping students work on class projects. I learned how to set up and run various machines including the milling machine and lathe.

It's a great place to work. Management and coworkers are friendly, courteous and fun to be around. A typical day at work is meeting hundreds of individuals a day, ringing up purchases and helping customers find the materials they are looking for. I learned to adapt to various methods of completing a transaction. An enjoyable part of the job is learning about the various courses students are taking, and getting a glimpse of their future hopes.
