got to have hands-on experience that I never thought I would receive at a part-time job. Getting to work with a large team on a technical writing project has been fun.

There is no stress here. Rather relieving others from stress of studies and helping them, it is really good experience for me. And I learnt a lot working here.

The management in Cambrian College is good. They explain each and everything in detail and in proper manner. The hardest part of the job is to tackle difficult situations and queries of customers.

Overall good work environment but management was not the most supportive. In my position there was a lot of overtime expected with minimal rewards to compensate.

Tutoring at Cambrian was fun. As a student it gave me unlimited flexibility in making my own tutoring schedules and I was never pressured to take on more or less then what I decided to take on. I could take on students as I pleased and was never asked to meet any specific demands aside from professionalism when tutoring.

It was a lab monitor job

Even after explaining the hours and days, you really deal with some low knowledge people


Seems the smarter people finish 90% of their work in class so they dont have to come in later on, on weekends or nights


Felt everyone was stretching the rules so they could get closer to their max for hours


there by stealing hours away from you.


Many of the questions I answered made me not want to be a teacher or anything like that
Pros
Looks good on resume
Cons
Have to drop everything to help people
