Student Experience Assistant (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 26 February 2018
Nipissing University is an excellent school, but as with all other universities, it is going downhill fast. In an attempt to be progressive, the university shames students for being "privileged, white, and male".
As Good a Teacher Education Program as I Assume There Is
Intermediate/Senior (Current Employee) – North Bay, ON – 2 May 2017
Although teachers' college is widely viewed by teachers to be a flawed program, Nipissing does a solid job of providing me with an education. I am generally happy with most aspects of being an education student at Nipissing, but there are always the occasional classes that feel unimportant. North Bay has a lot of nice natural scenery, but not too much else to do.
A flexible job designed for students with a great team
Team Leader / Student Caller (Current Employee) – North Bay, ON – 17 March 2016
I truly enjoy coming in to work every shift, since every day I am calling and speaking to new people. Being a team leader on the Call Campaign composed of only students has taught me how to work with my peers and build rapport while at the same time being a leader.
Gym front desk attendent (Current Employee) – North Bay, ON – 10 March 2016
I really liked working here because it was a calm and friendly environment. I learned how to be productive on my own time and have fun working with all my co-workers. The best part of this job was that it was dealing with things that I knew really well. I have been very active my whole life and it is great to be surrounded by people who love to stay active.
Clerk (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 7 August 2015
Horrible employer. Talk to anyone of the people they let go due to `cut backs`and have not rehired. They are posting contracts so they don`t have to pay you as much, provide benefits etc. Management is super corrupt. It is an old boys club and rather than showing concern for the University`s success they are concerned with building an ivory tower. Employee be ware. You may feel like they like you, they will promise a re-hireé renewalé full-time. It is all a show.
Some of the staff are cool

Productive workplace with alumni calling team members
Alumni Caller Team Leader (Former Employee) – North Bay, Ontario – 20 April 2015
At this workplace I had a team of callers calling alumni for donations to help support Nipissing University. I usually helped decided what list to call for alumni; helped with any information that alumni or callers needed; co-workers were friendly and attentively listened to what I had to say; hardest decision was when trying to react to a customers reaction when upset; most fun of the job was the interaction between co-workers and the amount of trust between each other.
Campus Walk (Current Employee) – North Bay, ON – 6 January 2015
This is a great student position allowing students to complete homework and allows time for studying. Everyone is great to work with and management is extremely friendly and accommodative to students who have a heavy work load.
ACCOUNTING LECTURER (Current Employee) – North Bay, ON – 16 April 2014
A typical work day included a 3 hour lecture, office hours (meeting with students), evaluating assignments
One has to be: - self motivated in order to be prepared for class and get work done in a timely manner, - great at working and motivating others as it is necessary to help the students in their learning.
The most enjoyable part of my day was office hours where I got a chance to know and help my students
The hardest part of my job was to see some of my students struggle however being able to discuss their challenges and help them through them during office hours was rewarding.
