Helpful and Supported Environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Although they only pay you minimum wage for doing a TA's job, it was fun to help the first year students. Additionally the supervisors were very supporting and helpful

Temporary

Only for the paycheck, it was tolerable at best. Management and team had no communication and it showed. No leadership, a lot of bullies from management, power tripping was rampant and you get treated less than human. Thank God the job wasn't forever.

Good way to test yourself

Tutoring students and helping them diagnose issues with their at home setups and software required for school is a great way to test your skills and knowledge. The management is friendly and understanding.

Not the worst but definitely not the best

It was not the most equal treatment at times. I often did not enjoy what I did as they made me feel as though I was inferior. They acted like they were considerate of my concerns, but little progress was ever really made. And they forced to quit during the pandemic when they were aware that my children were schooling at home. I found that thus was the most disgusting move of all and am happy to have cut ties.

Pros

Free snacks

Cons

I wasn't treated as en equal. They often made me feel beneath them.

Peaceful and supportive environment!

Great place to work as it gives you a sense of belonging. I felt valued for my hard work and earned respect from other staff, supervisors, and parents. The happy environment at work generates positive energy.

Terrible place to work in!

This wasn't a respectful place to work in. Management hired some people in senior positions for reasons other than competence or professional experience, who in turn foster an environment of disrespect, harassment, and aggression.

Good union job with opportunities on evenings and weekends before Covid19

- Typical day starts with signing people in for the morning and then afternoon session - The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the very nice, smart and educated staff. Pizzas and appetizers like Tim Bits were also provided once in a while to spice things up - Union environment with everything defined by the collective agreement - Getting to work can be tough on weekends especially with a morning shift but plenty of paid parking around

Pros

Good downtown Toronto location, Good pay and benefits including pension, Full training is provided, Professional employer, Free tuition for employees

Cons

Covid19 has impacted the role a lot, Roles above $100k aren't many

Positive place to work

Most people are pleasant. It's a positive and well-balanced place to work.There are plenty of growth opportunities but only if you're part of the union. If you're a temporary worker, it's hard to grow in your career. Getting to be a part of the union is NOT easy.
