Great place to work
Job Developer / Office Administrator (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 18, 2014
Pros: one of the best rated place to work; holidays; sick days; good wages
Cons: competition for employment; contract based jobs
This was ideally the best place I've worked, but the competition for jobs is great. The contract nature of employment makes it hard to retain permanent employment. The people were great and the nature of the jobs felt important and I frequently felt like I was making a positive difference.

wonderful place to work
Child and Youth Worker (Current Employee), toronto ontarioJuly 4, 2013
I have had a variety of experiences in different situations with youth ageing from 6 to 24 years of age. These include group homes, school settings, camp settings and shelters. I have had many success stories while working with these youth. I have experience working in the different cultural regions of Toronto and have experience working with mental – more... health, behaviour and addictions as well. I have also just recently had the opportunity to co-ordinate a summer camp program for a community in Toronto that is at risk.
You will find me to be very relaxed and able to deal with any situation that may arise. I am able to remain calm and deal with issues with assertiveness, and utilize a behavioural cognitive discussion to help resolve the problem. As I stated before, I have experience working with behaviours, and have managed to have some youth come around and learn different ways of dealing with their anger, simply by speaking with them (not at them) and offering different options to try.
Although I currently reside in Barrie, I am more than willing to transfer to where I am needed, providing the employment opportunities are there. – less

Intern - Transportation and Planning Department (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 3, 2013
At this position, I edited catchment areas for school bus routes, organized data, and analyzed the effects of different forms of transportation on air quality with the use of ARC Map 10 and Edulog software. I learned many new skills with the software, especially with what was new to me, such as Edulog. Co-workers were helpful. The management did not – more... hover but was great in making sure tasks were completed promplty. The hardest part of the job was using software I had not used in school, although I was quick to learn with practice. The most enjoyable part was the ability to practise my abilities with the software with real-life scenarios. – less

Very relaxing but sometimes very stressful
Summer Student Caretaker (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 1, 2013
Pros: alot of breaks
Cons: heavy lifting
The job can be very stressful or relaxing depending on the head caretaker at the certain school. I did Carpet cleaning which is much more easier then lifting or cleaning the schools. When there is no more carpets to do in the summer, we are switched back to regular caretaking, where we sweep, clean, lift, and whatever job the head caretaker has for – more... us. My co-worker is great. I learned how to communicate and interact with workers who really seem to try and make your day extremely difficult. The best part about my day is having to see the little kids in some school's and the happy faces all over the school's. The pay is really good and it is a job I would not mind continue to work at until I have a secure career after university. – less

Fun work environment, engaging activies with little kids
Camp Staff (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 5, 2013
Pros: free lunch
Cons: no air conditioning
Everyday at work, we would have to come in early to set up our activities with kids, later on in the day we would engage our activities that we've planned with the students in your class. Everyday i learn new things, not just about the kids and also preparing new activities for students to engage in. My co-workers are all helpful when it comes to helping – more... out and outgoing with the kids. The hardest part about this job is taking care of 20 or more students in a room without any air conditioning and the most enjoyable part of this job is working with little kids and engaging in activities with them. – less

Tutors in the Classroom Program (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 7, 2013
Pros: free hellos and laughter
Cons: physically and emotionally draining
A common day as a tutor in TDSB classroom requires tutors to follow the requests of a teacher.

One learns to observe the pedagogical tendencies of a teacher to blend in with his or her requests as he or she manages the children.

The coworkers are diligent and tolerant of the students who perform their tasks as quickly as possible under resource constraints.
