Summer Student Caretaker (Current Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 29, 2014
Pros: working with fun people and self-management of time
Cons: early mornings and late nights
A typical day at work during the night shift in May and June would involve going from room to room and taking out garbage, sweeping, vacuuming, cleaning washrooms, and cleaning up any messes. I would get a dinner break and lock up my section of the building at the end of the shift. A typical day shift in July and August would involve doing the summer clean up: taking everything out of classrooms,
I learned how to manage time in order to complete all tasks in a timely and efficient manner.
The management was easy going, responsible and checked in on us from time to time. My co-workers were all older than me and worked full time, but they were easy to relate to and I enjoyed seeing them every day.
The hardest part of the job was the continuous heavy lifting of desks and other equipment. The most enjoyable part of the job was finishing each room and the satisfaction that arose from that.

Lunch Room Supervisor I (Current Employee), TorontoNovember 2, 2014
A family owned business that was very good to work for and work with.
Learning a lot of tricks in the trade helped develop my past skills to greater levels.
Which gives me an edge on my current employment. A usual day would be hectic and busy but if you could multitask then the day went well and quickly. Best part was establishing a good communication with customers and speaking with them. Making them happy was the best part of the day.

An engaging work environment for those who respect children
occasional teacher (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 14, 2014
Pros: professional staff attitude among co-workers
Cons: you have to like children, including on their very bad days.
After career change, I am a new Supply Teacher in the Elementary Panel. I thoroughly enjoy working with the students and find my colleagues and administrators (Principles and VP's) have been tremendously supportive.
Although on-call, workload is such that I can get up every day ready to go to work, and 80% of the time I will be placed. Often I know of placements ahead of time.

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.
