Great starter job.
Program Representative Sport Clubs (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 June 2017
Workplace culture was in the process of restructuring (a very good idea). Good place to "get your feet wet" as management is very forgiving in most departments. Enjoyed the flexibility of planning my work week.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Work space was over stimulating (too noisy).

Simple work with good customers and nice managment
Invigilator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 May 2017
Hours were easy and very flexible. Co-workers are nice and very easy to get along with. The hardest part of this job is the lack of company because this position required one to work alone. However there was no management to keep a constant watch, as long as the work is done and the teacher and students get helped when they arrive there is no reason for management to get involved.
Pros
Simple work and freedom to work at own pace
Cons
lack of company

Call Centre Representative (Former Employee) –  york university12 May 2017
York university was a fun workplace environment however the pay was low and not given on time. A typical day at work involved checking in with the manager and then continuing on with the workload with no breaks. I learned that call center jobs can teach you a lot of social skills often needed. Management was nice and accomodating. The hardest part of the job was meeting the quota set by managers. The most enjoyable part was speaking with fellow colleagues.
