Teaching was exciting though resources for teaching were sometimes scarce.
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), Greater Sudbury, ONJune 7, 2015
Pros: Students were adults and were of good behavior most of the time thus enhancing academic work.
Cons: Lack of resources for effective teaching and learning was the main headache.
A day begun with lectures after which questions were solicited from students.I was also available for supervising students projects.The hardest thing was when I didn't have the needed chemicals to undertake some of the practical work.
I felt very glad when my students obtained very good grades.

I enjoyed it for sometime but eventually grew tired of it.
Custodian (Former Employee), Greater Sudbury, ONOctober 15, 2014
Pros: working by myself
Cons: doing too much of other peoples work for the same pay as them.
A typical day for me was doing my work as well as my coworkers which had nothing to do with me. I learned that the more you know the more they want you to do, the better worker you are the more you are taken advantage of. When you work in a group there are always coworkers that are nice to your face but not so nice behind your back. The hardest part of my job was doing more than I should of been doing for the same wage as some of my coworkers that I had to do some of their work for. Being able to chat with some of the clients that I had gotten to know well over the years.

When I first worked here everyone was nice but towards the end, my boss was harder on me, but I loved to clean and keep myself busy and that is the only reason a stayed plus I learned how to clean properly with the right chemicals.
