Good experience and i loved it for 14 years. I recommend it. I loved teaching adult students. Less stressful than teaching young children. The supervisors were the best.

It was an amazing experience where staff was always willing to help to set up account or even connect me with other professionals. Everyday for was was an opportunity to learn something new and refresh things that I had learned in class but did not get the chance to practice or explain to somebody else.

This is a good college, the staff is friendly. A lot more work is needed to done towards hiring minority professors and recruitment of minority students in the Architecture/construction/engineering fields. This would inspire minority students to gain confidence and perform better in their careers.

Working at Algonquin is both challenging and rewarding. The organization is very well structured and the programs are top notch. The college value experienced hands and all contributions are always welcome. Students are also treated with respect and I have observed that the students operate to very high standards especially in the School of Advanced Technology where I teach.

One particular department has an impossible and tyrannical situation, lots of problems, trust issues, lip service, unable to engage staff, communicate and collaborate. Overall the one questionable departmental could improve their values, ethics, integrity, and management performance. This place has very unique problems that won't be resolved until they change the management regime within the department in question. Some jobs are un-manageable and this may be one of them. Be cautious and do your industrial networking prior to accepting an offer, otherwise, you may find yourself in a bad situation.

I was a student in Algonquin, though each assignment in our courses was treated as work and a task, therefore, this questionnaire does not reflect my experience as a worker in Algonquin College

Algonquin College has jobs that are super flexible and accommodating for students. However, the salary is a low union wage. Management within the Student Learning Centre are great!

It was stressful but in a good way and kept me on my toes. would highly recommend working there because it takes you out of your comfort zone and helps you build character as well as coping mechanisms in being in a job like this that you take with you forever.

I worked there for about a year on a part-time contract, but I have heard that most of the senior management was replaced since I left. Generally it was difficult to get anything done since management was lollygagging most of the time or flinging mud at each other.

Starting my foreigner career as a part-time professor at Algonquin College is being really a wonderful experience, not only because of the institution itself, world-wide known, but because of the people: from students to professors and staff, all they practice its values (Caring, Integrity, Respect, and Learning), helping to create an exciting environment that aims "to transform hopes and dreams into lifelong success".

It was always a pleasure working at Algonquin. My students always greeted me with a smile and a warm heart. My co-workers were always supportive and helped me whenever I needed the answers. I loved going to work because everyday was something new. I learned that as a teacher, it isn't always about being serious, but its about earning something new from your students in order to grow together.
