I like the staff and the store has a good atmosphere. The payee was okay and the schedule was flexible. So I cannot complain about the work experience.

GBC needs to demonstrate more cultural openness so the administration depicts the diverse ethnic culture that (student) and contract workers. GBC presently does not represent the diaspora at this time. There's also a lack of transparency and bias when it comes to hiring for permanent positions.
Pros
the rate of pay/hour for contract and part-time emoloyees
Cons
no benefits and having to wait to see if the chair for each program gives you another contract

Bullying culture

Way too much politics. Management was vindictive and demanding, they want automatons to follow orders and not think. Too much, do as I say not as I do, mentality. Make one mistake and they hunt you and watch for any reason to cut you down.The front line workers are great and really try to do the best for the students. Management is terrible and monitors staff with a Big Brother complex. Don't try to do what's right, Do as you are told!
Pros
Good union, and it is needed.
Cons
Its stressful having someone watching you looking for reasons to scold you.

My experience at George Brown College has provided me with the opportunity to learn and cement my experience in course design and development of learning materials. The interaction with culturally diverse students, while simultaneously honing the "people skills" that are crucial to succeed as a team player on diverse staff is beyond satisfaction.
Cons
uncertainty of job security due to contract renewal

It's a place with a great environment and you are able to support your colleagues and receive help and advice from them as well. It's a place that cares about wellness, mental health and consider the feedback from students and staff about your work.

Loved getting to work early, in order to soak in the diversity, rich culture, and positive vibe on campus. Management was unbelievably supportive, could not do enough for me. Out-of-the-box thinkers, so rare! They always put the well-being, short-term and long-term, of the GBC athletes first. Management listens to their coaches, and respects their opinions and ideas. Comfortable, enjoyable, productive workplace. Team-oriented. Hardest part was rounding up the athletes on the team I coached, as they were at different campuses, courses were at different times, and we didn't have a true "home field," nor dressing room. Most enjoyable part of the job was coaching practices and getting to know the academic and personal side of the athletes. Wonderful young men, very proud to represent GBC.
Pros
Diversity. Open chain of communication. Budget to cover needs & some wants.
Cons
Didn't have a singular home park. Need fans at games. Nearby Christie Pits will do the trick.

I enjoy interacting with all the students of different ages and backgrounds. Counselling, informing, directing, coaching, facilitating were some of the skills I used daily which was rewarding for me. It was always a pleasure to see the result of my intervention after my intervention with each student/person I delivered services.
Pros
Constant training and upgrading intra and interpesonal skills
Cons
not enough hours, and not enough support from supervisors
