Ted Rogers Leadership Centre (TRLC) Intern (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 June 2017
I loved this job, and I love Ryerson. This particular job was very very part time, so that's the only reason I gave "salary/benefits" 3/5 stars. This was a great job to have while enrolled as a student.

Being able to make your own hours and schedule is helpful but not much opportunity for advancement with in some of the departments. The people make the job worth while and the events that we put together are always a blast.
Teaching and Grading Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 June 2017
A typical day at work consisted of running seminars for around 20+ students, assisting them with course material as well as responding to specific questions they might have. I also conducted office hours in which students could partake in one-on-one time if they required additional assistance. The hardest part of the job was being sure I could provide every student enough time to ensure that they fully understood the course material - this was attained by ascertaining if multiple students had the same questions, and addressing them in a clear manner for the whole group. I enjoyed the students' enthusiasm when they finally grasped a particularly complex concept which had previously given them difficulty
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 June 2017
A fantastic place to learn, work with peers, and help the next generation. The workload and "typical" day changes with who you are working for. The hardest part is that it's not really a full-time gig and it can be hard to schedule work around class schedules.

Student Identification Verification Personelle (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 June 2017
The position I held was temporary and hence the job security was low and low chance of advancement. The job however was really fun, and the staff was excellent, helpful and enthusiastic. The hardest part of the job was dealing with students that do not adhere to policies and rude. Management was rarely around, but even if they were it was very laid back!

IT Advisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 May 2017
A typical days of work is really interesting, since we get to meet lots of different people every time and have to face new problems all the time. In some cases, we are given instructions, on how to do. But in many cases, we have to improvise and solve the issue. I really like working here.

Frontline customer service (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 April 2017
Working at Ryerson is great. Working with other employees is a blast, everyday you are surrounded by ambitious individuals all chasing dreams. My time working at Ryerson felt more like being a part of a family. The managers are great, they are willing to help you out of any jam and are always there to converse with when you need them. The work space is great, the community of people that you run into make you feel respected and appreciated, work felt more like fun rather than an obligation. The hardest part of the job is managing your time, but after a good amount of experience I became pretty good at it. Over the course of my time there I learned so many skills that I will take to my next job with me. I learned how to manage my time, how to be a leader, how to work with others, how to problem solve and even how to deal with problematic situations and people. The most enjoyable part of my day is interacting with the clientele .
Flexibility, free food at times, ability to learn different positions and take on many roles.
