Excellent opportunity to work and learn simultaneously. Supervisors were available for any issues that were above my knowledge. Excellent team to work with and the added benefits of making a little cash while in college, its all-around great!

You worked in rain, shine or snow.
The boss didn't care if you got heat stroke, you had to continue working.

On really hot days they expected us to continue working and not take water and washroom breaks

Great co-workers
Pros
Amazing co-workers and great experience
Cons
Bad boss

During my time at school, working for Lakeland College allowed me to subsidize some of my costs and made it a very comfortable experience. Awesome opportunity to be a RA (residents advisor) and really connects you with your own "family" while you stay on campus

I hope that this works for the reader. As an employee , either contract or salary we must be committed to the continuous improvement of the companies bottom line and the continuous improvement of the corporate safety and work progress culture. Complete management equality based on all working steadily through out the day with a view of completing assigned tasks.

The culture of the work place should fall in place with the expectations of the corporate management group. When a strong a corporate culture is in place the work place becomes a comfortable and progressive team that is able to over come dead lines and issue driven problems and enjoy a sense of victory at the end of every work day !
Pros
coordinated work force with lots of cooperative values
Cons
Poor progress on major problems

An institution with numerous talented and passionate people. Has issues around culture like any other large post secondary, however, the small nature of the school allows for more freedom.

I was left to run research projects for Lakeland College and afforded a lot of trust and freedom.
I was able to take part in a lot of interesting projects and often it didn't feel like work at all.
