You get to pick your own hours as a teachers assistant/marker. It is a laid back job. You get to work one-on-one with students - which is great experience if you want to be a teacher.

I worked at Mount Saint Vincent throughout my undergraduate degree and afterward while I was at another school for my Master's. I recommend working at Mont Saint Vincent University.

For the most part the work here is pretty straightforward, although usually reactive. Working class people are nice. Proactive ideas are not paid attention to unless they are brought forward by someone near the top of the food chain.

Management is terrible. We go in one direction for awhile then burn it down and go another way. Not nearly as prosocial as we pretend to be.

Mount Saint Vincent University's conference services has a wonderful management. You get flexible shifts based on your availability. The workplace is a friendly yet professional environment.The most enjoyable part of the job is the relief of getting off work at the end of the day as it can be exhausting. Working over I mostly learnt to work in a team, which I love and also working individually. It gives a good pay depending on the number of shifts you take up. The hardest part of the job is the numerous rooms needed to be cleaned at the end of the day. The coworkers are amiable. We give directions and help to the customers where needed. A typical day at work is getting the moving cart with the cleaning ad stocking it with cleaning supplies, getting the list of of rooms to be cleaned from the front desk, going to the rooms one after the other to remove all dirty linens, and replacing them with clean and new linens, sweeping and mopping the living rooms and washrooms, throwing out the Gabbage, cleaning all mirrors, windows, and dressers, .

Overall I enjoyed my time at the University especially while working for the Senate and the Women's Studies department. While in financial services the was no adherence by management to the University policies on overtime and flex time. I had excellent exposure to the inner management and administration of an Educational Institution. Working with the students was most enjoyable.

Each student is an independent individual. The teacher should be good at discovering the strengths of the students and guiding the students in finding the best learning method for them.

I do this as more of an unpaid internship. But I hope to get to a paid position perhaps in my fourth year or after completing my bachelors degree. This job offers learned experience and on the job training in psychological research

Worked for three years for the mount and found it to be quite enjoyable. Great group of staff as well as regular customers who made it enjoyable bartending and managing both the pub and store. Hardest part of the job was when it got slow but most enjoyable was seeing when people were out enjoying themselves and the events you've planned.
