One becomes a member of the “Landmark family”. The feeling of inclusion, respect for effort and ability and the opportunity to have some fun with students and fellow staff is ever-present.
Fun place to work. Good mix of downtime and more faced-paced environment. Plenty of time to get schoolwork done during quiet hours. Kids are fun to hangout with and are generally pretty easy going. Activities are fun! Overall good experience here.
A very stressful work environment, and staff is not paid nearly enough. You’re working with students with learning disabilities but no extra training is given for how to do this properly. There’s no job security and multiple positions are cut every year. The students are great, but I would not recommend this as a work environment. It would make a good last resort education job if you can’t find anything else, but I wouldn’t recommend staying any longer than you have to. Administration is also very notorious for playing favourites and treating staff unfairly. You’re also expected to do a lot of “extra” duties without compensation. The burnout rate is very high here.
The working environment at Landmark is very enjoyable as the Student Life Team staff are all on the same page and that makes the long weekend shifts feel less tiresome. Every weekend there were multiple outdoor as well as indoor activities for the students. I choose what activity interested me and that made it fun for myself as well as the students! My supervisors were very supportive and were available whenever needed. As a Dorm Parent, I would sometimes need assistance at the late hours in the night and they were always there to guide me. The kitchen staff was so friendly and happily catered to students and staffs food restrictions and allergies. I got to learn a lot from the students as well as the staff while working at Landmark. Working with boarding students helped me be more patient and understanding. Moreover, by watching my fellow experienced colleagues I learned how to handle different situations. I am very grateful to have worked at Landmark for 3 years and cherish all the amazing memories and friendships!
Landmarks scheduling for the weekend activity team fit my life as a student very well and even provided opportunities on shift to complete school work or study. Working here also provided countless opportunities to explore what the local region has to offer. Being part of the student life team we were able to take the students on many outings and occasionally overnight stays. Getting to know each student and supporting them in the less academic parts of their lives was highly rewarding. The landmark community was welcoming and friendly, I greatly enjoyed my time as part of the team.
