The fellow staff you work with are great but middle and upper management are over paid, under achievers. There seems to be a manager for every supervisor and a director for every other manger. Some mangers don’t even have staff under them. Getting a definitive answer from higher ups is next to impossible because there is no communication between them and even if you do get an answer it tends to change, making work and projects difficult. There are too many captains trying to steer a ship they don’t even notice it’s sinking.
Great pay, good benefits, nice work environment
Heavy in middle and upper management, no direction from leaders, poor communication
As a student it is wonderful but i never worked at Fleming college . i worked there as a volunteer without any salary.
As a part of a social service worker program, I want to say that I learned a lot of things related to my program. I want to mention that one of the best things that I mention here is I learned how to behave positively in a difficult situation. The experiences of my volunteer work are great at Fleming College. in this way, I communicate with a lot of students.
Although it is technically work study working at Fleming As an RA you are paid less than nothing to go above and beyond and don't even get free residence.
As a first aid responder I'd have to get up early in the morning, check my gear, then wait in the first aid room for a call to come in and I would respond to it and that's when it would get stressful. I learned alot of different medical procedures. The management was fine and kept our gear in good condition. The hardest part about the job was the time spent on calls I would often miss classes as I was a student at the time. The most enjoyable part of the job however was the satisfaction of helping another person.
Stressful and not for everyone. You need a very thick skin and specific training to be able to handle this job. Having your team build each other up is very important in this position, because it can tear individuals down very quickly.
I enjoy teaching and giving instruction. Young people today are a challenge to teach as there are so many distractions. The aids for presentation and delivery are a great help, but it still comes down to developing a relationship between instructor and student. They perform so much better when their heart is in it.
While technically, I still work there, I haven't been called back in years. Most of the courses that I teach have gone online through OntarioLearn and the pay rates vary a lot for them. While I taught my courses in introductory computers, Excel, Hardware Fundamentals and Linux, I learned how to do with a few difficult students and to adapt my course to their needs. Flexibility is a large part of this job, especially when teaching adults. Planning engaging activities is important, too. It was challenging at times, especially course development but it was fun to be in the classroom.
