Challenging and rewarding experiences working with students. Get to work with a multi-million dollar life size simulator that is exacting and demanding, taking students into a real lifelike experience without the danger of making a mistake that could cost real dollars and lives. Very fun.

Grounds Crew Worker (Former Employee), Barrie, OntarioJanuary 8, 2015
Typically a very full work day maintaining the grounds at the college. I became comfortable both using and maintaing equipment. Management was always helpful, and most of the time the supervisors were satisfactory. There is generally a lot of turnover in employees, but both crews that I worked on ended up gelling and working well together.
