Working for a french public school board
I T Technician (Former Employee) – London, ON – 8 August 2014
I spent 14 years of my life working and supporting all areas of information technologies for 7 schools in London,Sarnia and Windsor.
Installation of computers and their connection to the network and a multitude of other tasks on maintaining, securing, planning and supporting all various equipments pertaining and falling under the I.T. department responsibilities.
I got a lot of satisfaction for helping on site staffs and resolving computer and networking issues.
The pay was excellent but the management of the team in our department was very poor.
The Director managing us had no experience and I would say no qualification for managing people and this resulted in creating a lot of problems.
The working conditions became worse in the last 3 years as they moved my office in the basement of a school and there was no walls for privacy as I had to share a very little space with other colleagues and it became very difficult to focus properly on the job.
This is why the working environment for me is very important.
I am looking for a place where all members of the team works together toward the same goal. I can also works under very little supervision and I would say that this is where I excel the most.
To meet with staff from different schools was enjoyable and motivating.
Sometimes too much duplication and a lack of communication within the department.
