Anonymous (Former Employee) – Ontario – 23 March 2019
Unfortunately, the manager of the Alumni Department gets away with too much. The manager is basically unsupervised and manipulates the director above them to get their way. It is known that management takes advantage of those who work for them especially if the employee is not protected by the union.
Great Coworkers, poor management and organization in workplace
Kitchen Staff Keyholder (Former Employee) – London, ON – 11 January 2019
I miss the job some days, however I feel like it is most likely just because of the work family you have when you are a part of the team there! The management was always a mess and lacked professionalism.
Meal plans with a vast variety of options
Chaos within management, can lose your position to someone with seniority despite their lack of skills
Fansahwe College taught me a lot about the industry!
Student (Former Employee) – London, ON – 21 November 2018
I really learned a great deal from Fanshawe about the TV/film industry in their Broadcasting-Television and Advanced Filmmaking programs respectively. The workplace culture was supportive; in fact, I felt truly in my element. The hardest part of the job was the work itself, but then, who said film and TV were easy professions? I enjoyed the creative aspects and support I got there from my peers.
Educational Aide (Current Employee) – London, ON – 10 November 2018
Being an Educational Aide, I do note taking and both in class assistance and some out of class assistance including tutoring and academic strategies to students with various accommodations and disabilities in the general arts programs primarily. The work is very interesting as I am able to sit in in a large variety of classes in many programs and came to appreciate the wide range Fanshawe has to offer.
Flexible schedule as you can state when you are available and what subjects you are able to cover.
The hours vary, and the work is only about 16 weeks a year, The pay isn't enough to live off, The work is rather isolating, as well as you don't have an office or coworkers
student of Music Industry Arts, I played (Former Employee) – London, ON – 4 November 2018
A great school to go to for applied trades. It gave me the opportunity to explore my interests in media and music, through the use of group projects, classes, seminars, and guest lectures as well as assignments, tests, quizzes, and exams.
Interrobang Writer (Canada) (Former Employee) – London, ON – 19 August 2018
The college truly connects you with people from the industry and also helps you advance in your professional development. The challenges increase continuously and you feel satisfied with the feedback. My boss was awesome. She helped me find my words as a writer and also help me find confidence in my work as well. The college has this vibe to it, that allows people to try their best adn rewards you for it.

From minute one the environment fostered learning and encouraged success.The support system for students was top notch. When I finished my ACE program I was able to enter an Apprenticeship for Parts Technician.
Theatre and Website Information Specialist (Former Employee) – London, ON – 5 July 2018
It was a job I loved doing. I got my own space to work work on photos from other plays, and I got to set up the venue for what would be the London Fringe Festival that year in which I got to see plays for free, and to top it all off, I got an incredible boss who I became friends with and we both worked very hard together.
I got to work within the program I went to college for.
Some of the work was a little tedious but I wouldn't call it a con.
