Ok but can be annoying

It's not bad but the pay is poor and at times can get very busy. It also depends on the department you are in. Some are hard others are good. I heard RSR have lazy bosses who are not organized


Can study while work and managers are supportive


The pay is low and it can be deppresing dealing with mentally unstable students

On-line Instructor for Project Management Courses

I was solicited by Fanshawe College, so little personal inter action required. They are professional, courteous and easy to work with.They would contact me about one month before each semester to see if I would teach an on-line Project Management Course the next semester. I did that for a few years. Then I decided I wanted to give back in another way.


I could work from home.

Great place to work.

Fanshawe College has an amazing faculty and is a great place to work. Educating students is very rewarding and hands down the best part of this job. Fanshawe teachers are pationate about what they do and this makes Fanshawe a top tier college in SW Ontario.

Good Community Spirit

Working in the Registrar's Office was a pleasure. Being a student at Fanshawe College, I was a contract work-study student. The staff that are employed are readily available to help each other with their success.


Inclusiveness - being made to feel like you belong


Parking - there are several parking lots on-site, but some are on the other side of the school, plus you pay for your parking

Aplace in which you won't be bored, you have to attend international students, and help them with their inquiries. Never going to regret working for the international office.

Awesome school, post secondary should be free.

Fanshawe college is an awesome school, overall the faculty has many competent members. A few seem to be on auto pilot but there are outnumbered by the other staff on campus. This being said post secondary should be free. My student loans are ridiculous and continue to severely affect my quality of living.

productive and fun place to work

It's very difficult to get a teaching position at Fanshawe, I tried for more than 5 years. And now I just work on contract a few weekends each year so my review is not cumulative.

Tiring and resistant

A very conservative school hich lacks staff diversity. I found the school resistant to change and offering more of university rather than polythechnic education when I taught there.
