Learning potential and wonderful coworkers
Intern (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 18 August 2014
There are busy times in this position and slow times. At the beginning and the end of the school semester, paperwork, emails and presentations are a plenty. In the middle of the semester there is a slow point where as a student, you are able to focus on your studies. I have learned a lot of administrative tasks, I have learned the way University of Guelph runs a lot of their events and who to talk to for certain services. Co-workers are very pleasant when everyone has the same type of respect for the services Frontier College provides. When everyone respects the services, coworkers work very hard on their administrative duties (even when they are all volunteers). Management is very appreciative of all the work you do and they never forget to show you their appreciation. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning how a non profit organization works and the hardest part of the job is the long stressful hours during the busy time. When it is busy, things become very last minute and you need to be able to work in a fast paced environment. Your priority skills become well adapted in this position.
Free snacks, respectful and wonderful coworkers/management
