Customer Service Representative & Photographer (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 2, 2014
A normal day at work would start off with performing a test of all the computers and printers to make sure that there are no errors. After that, it's a simple matter of having students fill out a form with their information, handing it to me to enter into the computer system, taking their photo for their student ID cards and allowing it to print on – more... site.

I've learned a lot about how to handle and manage situations that arise between the customer and employee, both negative and positive issues. In addition, I've learned how to maximize my time by performing other tasks when I'm currently not occupied with a customer or student.

My co-workers made all the difference at this job and made work not seem like work at all. All my co-workers were fun, exciting and positive.

The hardest part of my job was when my workstation developed problems and caused delays in my productivity. As a result, I couldn't process as many student as I normally could.

The most enjoyable part of my job was to be able to assist and do my job effectively and efficiently. – less

Research Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: great pay, great staff, safe workplace
Cons: sweltering heat
A typical day at work started off with the preparation of documents needed to complete an analysis of an allocated area, followed by the journey there. Once there, I would walk along streets, plazas and within malls known for commercial activity with a list of stores that have specific statistics associated with them, and confirm that they match. In – more... the event that they don't, I would augment them so that they would. I would compile a few days worth of data then return to the lab where I would update the existing database with the new data I had acquired through my field work. This would be my main responsibilities. I have learned that commercial activity exists in even the most remote of areas. Management was very helpful in fulfilling an queries I had at the time and they were all very approachable. The hardest part of the job was working under the sweltering heat for hours. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was discovering new parts of Ontario I had never visited before. – less

This was largely an independent position which required traveling across Ontario. I was able to gain a strong understanding of how Ontario Post-secondary institutions function, and help promote higher learning. My public speaking and inter-personal communication skills were put to the test in this position. As a result I was able to strengthen my verbal – more... and written communicative skill set. Connecting with students and helping them shape their educational path was the most rewarding part of my role with Ryerson. – less

Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 11, 2013
Teaching Assistant - Supply Chain Process Architecture

Being a student, a teaching assistant position is a very honourable position that awards high academic achievement. A typical day as a teaching assistant would mean on-call work as the semester progressed. The job responsibilities for myself were mainly grading student assignments, creating rubrics, – more... assisting students, and invigilating exams.

I have learnt a lot as a teaching assistant from the importance of protecting personal information to developing fair assessment tools. One of the most important lessons I have learned as a teaching assistant is to maintain constant communication with the supervising professor. As the semester progressed, I have learnt to appreciate the aforementioned more and more as the work begins to increase exponentially and deadlines become shorter.

The teaching assistant role is a self-management role, where the supervising professor will occasionally give you tasks with specified or mutually agreed deadlines.

The hardest part of the job would definitely be the fact that work would increase at the same time school work would increase. This meant increased burden of work during examination times.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that teaching assistants have a view of the teacher's side of the educational process. To top it off, it also paid really well. – less
