Great place to work

When you begin a career at Cambrian College, you have the opportunity to move to other departments and to advance. If you teach, you can teach in several departments or in just one. If you are support staff, you can move around to get valued experience in other areas. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with students. It is an honour to be able to help people to learn, study, take tests, do placement work, etc. Cambrian WANTS students to suceed! They value student success. Cambrian College also values its employees. They have great benefit packages which includes PROACTIVE things to help with work stress such as massage therapy. The campus has a highly successful wellness program to help students and staff.

Pros

No weekend work; 8:30-4:30 for support staff; great benefits

Cons

Some management needs to be trained to deal with conflict

Great Learning experience

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.

Nice place to work

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.

Learned how to tackle different situations

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.

Good work environment

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.

Easy going, relaxed, fulfilling.

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.

Student

Great place to work as a student! They worked around my very heavy table and I was allowed to pick up hours when they were available! There was lunches and little thank you things for all our hard work too!

Pros

supportive
Was this review helpful?

Very basic

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
