I only worked off site for the IELTS exam with Conestoga College, but the staff was very helpful and professional. They were able to provide us the training needed along with timesheets, schedules, and distribution of our candidates in a very timely and professional manner. I always felt comfortable and knew exactly what to do even though I would do my examining in a different city than where I live.
Fantastic place to work with. Very knowledgeable and friendly managers. Lots of room and opportunities to grow. Open working hours, No pressure or rush. Effective communication among all level of organization
Math Consultant (Current Employee) - Kitchener, ON - 13 August 2019
Conestoga is a unionized place of work, and job security is great. The position involves teaching students by appointment or drop-in, usually one-on-one, although group appointments are offered. Perfect job for someone looking to work in the front lines with struggling students and who wants to keep their math skills sharp.
My typical day at work at Conestoga College was working closely with Automotive instructors who have been working in the field for at least 5 years. I helped doing preventative maintenance, brakes job and small mechanical repairs. The management was excellent as the manager of the program always followed up closely with my progress at work. The most enjoyable part of the job was being a co-worker with other Automotive instructors as well as being a student.
The introduction to the faculty was relatively easy but the connection with Professors although professional was cordial.
Most Professors were very available and helpful outside classes.
Subjects of learning directly connected to the real working life
Courses were well linked to the other courses of the program
in group-work every one receive marks for the average not individual marks.
Responsible for electronic maintenance and replacement in the event of failure. Great staff and management, work can be slow sometimes but when it picks up you will be busy for a while. Wear comfortable clothes.
