Worked as a student to make extra money
Programming Tutor (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON28 March 2018
The staff is very easy to work with and do the part of setting up students around your schedule so you don't have to deal with that headache. I unfortunately got stuck with a few students who just wanted me to do the work for them but the students who legitimately wanted to learn were really fun to work with/
Pros
Get paid for helping students with classes you have already passed
Cons
Some students use it as a way to have you do the work for them

Good place to work..
Office Clerk (Current Employee) –  Oshawa, ON8 March 2018
Good place to work. Good benefits IF you get full-time. Tends to replace full-time staff with contract staff if a full-time person leaves. Makes it impossible for Durham College alumni to become anything higher than a Manager with only a Durham College diploma, other wise you need a University Degree.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
too many contract staff, not enough full-time

Good, fair education. ASC exceptional.
ISL Volunteer (Current Employee) –  Durham Region, ON24 December 2017
Durham College is a good place to get a fair education. Their Access and Support Centre at the Whitby Campus is beyond Satisfactory which is perfect. They service their students at their individual needs and not at the needs of the college as a whole.

Overall, Durham is good.
Pros
Amazing ASC Staff
Cons
Poor parking at Whitby Campus

Amazing pay for a fun summer job!
INSTRUCTOR (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON13 November 2017
I had a lot of fun working under the college for this short time. I wish I could've done it for the whole summer. although it could've used a bit more organization though that has to do with advertising the courses offered.
Pros
great co-workers

Interesting Workplace
PT-College Professor School of BITM (Current Employee) –  Oshawa, On7 July 2017
Working here is a balance between 2 worlds and 2 generations. One you have the professional world where you work with people who all have the same goal; is for the student's to succeed. The other is the students who are not professional in anyway which can be frustrating because they think that they have to take responsibility.

A typical day is lecturing and then being in class for the students as they work on their assignments. After class if necessary hold office hours otherwise go back to main office, check in with the administration any updates necessary.

Other days is composed of marking, and prep work for the next class.

Otherwise a great experience.
