Academic Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 October 2017
If you care about education and these students do not work here. It is a business at the end of the day and they don't care about their students' education or bettering you professionally. Managers don't care about their staff and are incompetent. A lot of questionable behavior regarding academics and student services. This place will drain you as a professional and there is never support or training. Terrible communication amongst staff, managers etc. HR department is highly incompetent.

Professor-Tourism & Hospitality (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 11 February 2014
A typical day involved an eye for detail. In hospitality trade we get only one chance to make the first impression, understanding this is the key to marketing success. Customer service, ensuring impeccable service to the customers, one customer at a time. Strategic business plan and its implementation. Operating cost and labour scheduling and cost control. Reservations and inventory control
Most difficult part is difficult situation such as providing a flawless service to 500 customers in a wedding function amidst a power failure, still keeping the humour and ensuring all customers leave happy at the end of the function.
Most enjoyable part of the job is employee & associate engagement and motivation. Making 150 employees feel that the success inn the business was a result of their individual and collective efforts and not a result of effective planning and training provided by the management. The fun is to plan the activities in keeping with the business plan, selling the same to the associates so discreetly that they begin to believe that " it was their idea in the first place. Its fun to watch these motivated employees in action.
Freedom to entertain for business, free meals on duty, use of hotel automobiles and various industry perks
long working hours, perticularly on stat holidays and festive season.
Hall Monitor (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 13 January 2014
A typical day would be with instructing and motivating students to attend classes, assisting teachers with their paper work and sometimes in delivering the presentations, helping front desk officers with phone calls and other paper work, organizing record rooms etc.
I had a chance to learn Canadian working style, improve my inter-personal skills, organizational behavior and record keeping skills.
The management was very co-operative and very motivating.
Co-workers helped me in understanding the system and were very warm towards me.
Hardest part was motivating the students who carried a adamant attitude towards things.
Record keeping, organizing things and managing events was the most interesting and creative part.
Group lunches, good interactive sessions and weekly review sessions.
