Student (Current Employee) – University of Guelph, ON. – 8 January 2018

Gym Attendant: Easy job but management isn't the best
Athletics Staff (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 21 December 2017
1 person from management acts like a child. When ever he's having a bad bay, he makes sure everyone else is having bad day. He also doesn't know personal boundaries and makes his employees very uncomfortable at times. You normally just do some typical cleaning duties to start the morning such as vacuuming the weight-room floor, sweeping, and towel-mopping the gymnasium floor. Customer service is essential. You have to scan each students onecard for them to enter the facilities. The best part of the job is attending varsity basketball games working as the "key cleaner" mopping up sweat from the athletes. Sounds bad, but you get to watch the whole game front row where all the action is so your shift passes by in no time.
Student Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 15 November 2017
I did a total of 60 hours as a part of my college certificate and worked in the Sheridan gym doing various activities. I enjoyed the company and learned how to handle a gym floor and training people and keeping the gym floor clean.
Peer Mentor - Accessibility Centre (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 15 September 2017
I was not in a position with a lot of room for advancement so I cannot speak to that, but I had an excellent experience. The people were nice, there are tons of resources available on campus for staff use, and many perks. The job is diverse and interesting. Nothing bad to say!
Project Coordinator/Technician (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 6 July 2017
It's a good start for recent graduates, but there no professional growth and no promotions at all. Don't waste your time working here after your co-op(if you were a student). In worst case scenario they will offer you a part-time job and that's it. I don't know about other departments, but Facilities is not a place where you can develop your skills.
