Gaining Experience Coordinating the Event
This job consisted of weekly meetings. Discussing with groups what they accomplished and what else is on their list to do.

I learned that communication is important in order to see advancement.


The hardest part of the job was making sure everyone met their deadline and not exceeding the budget.


The most enjoyable part was seeing the end project accomplished.


The workplace culture was very positive and ambitious.

Student job
I do believe you have to be in the illustration program in order to get this job, but if you do, it’s great! If you are organized you can get your homework done, book the model and enjoy the sessions. This is a student job so don’t expect a weekly pay it’s given at the end of the tearm. The job teaches you how to schedule models and set up model platforms.
Pros
Free drawing sessions that you can’t procrastinate on
Cons
No weekly pay

Dawson college
Dawson College is located in Westmount and is a very diverse institution. I love the fact that it is always acknowledged that the college is built on the First Nations' land.

It was a student job.
Ut was a student job so there isn't much to say about it. I was tutoring students and I was getting paid. The pay wasn't great, but it also gave me credits.

Dawson College is an excellent Community college
Dawson College has an excellent faculty and a student body from extremely diverse backgrounds. Teachers are very competent and the culture inclusive.

The College is truly multi-cultural place and its work carries on within a city that is increasingly diverse as well. It has already produced figures of distinction among its graduates -- I expect that many more will follow in the years to come.
Pros
Rich diversity of every kind

Fun to be around young people at a hopeful point in life
Hardest part of the job - having to refuse students admission, or tell them they lack the grades or prerequisites for their desired university program... or having to explain to a student that they've been expelled.

The most enjoyable part of the job -- helping to launch young people on their path to become doctors, artists, teachers, lawyers, engineers... Also helping a student to see the options available to them when they are in a program to which they feel unsuited -- and watching the relief cross their features.
Pros
work/life balance
Cons
very little down time at any point in the year in my particular department

Not what expected
Extremely chaotic environment. Chaos adds/complicates simplest of tasks.Bullyish,abusive managers who don't understand what is required on a day to day basis to get some tasks done. Inadequate training & support. Co-workers are nice but understand full impact of their input on your jobs, which adds to chaos.

Quiet and busy shifts.
You never really get bored because there is a lot of stuff in the closet. It is quiet because you do it when there are not any classes there. The teachers are happy about the space when it is cleaning, it allows them to get props out easily.

Good Experience
It was a simple student job that allowed me to make a little bit of money in my free time. It also allowed to help others and to continue learning in a way a classroom can not teach. It was a good job in good environment, the employers were very nice and always there to help with any issues. Although you are being paid, it is not a job you do for money, the pay is minimum and not always consistent since it relies on how many times you meet with a tutee.
Pros
Meet different people, great learning experience and great employers
Cons
Inconsistent pay checks

Great place to work
For such a large institution, the staff are generally very amiable and supportive. A fun bunch of people on a social level. Advancement is difficult and not always supported by administration.
Pros
direct metro access
Cons
difficult to advance in a unionized environment

Good for students
Great for students who are studying full time as you get to create your own schedule and how much you want to work every week. People are very nice and quite organized.
