Student Job Work on Holidays as Kennel Attendant

Go in twice a day every day in the morning for a couple of hours and in the evening for a couple of hours to take care of animals. Walk them, Clean Kennels, Feed them according to diet, Any Physical therapy or Medical Care that needs to be given. Not many people apply because most of the students go home on the holidays and over Christmas but still, managers are working right beside you helping with everything. Very great work environment. Enjoy everyone I work for or with and love being with the animals and enriching their lives in any way possible. Wish COVID didn't happen and in school class weren't cancelled the first semester and only done online. As well as having the end of my first year the second semester cut short right during March Break when I was working on campus.

Pros

New experiences, being utilized and developing new skills and working with great people

Cons

Wish there was more time they needed student workers for the kennel animals and more hours to work

Kennel Duty

This is part of the animal related programs at Northern College. It is not exactly a job but to help you prepare for related jobs you may get with this experience.

Abusive Management and Staff.

They offered me a full time position! I did not accept as they do no respect students and employees ( broken furntiture, filthy lunch room). No reliable admin staff as they leave job within months. To make story short they are abusive to international students and professors. Called ministry to complain but no-one responded.

Good One

Northern College is a very small school, but we make up for size with good quality professors and excellent hands-on experience. The student to professor ratio makes it so that teachers are very accessible for any questions students may have.

Challenging

This is a job where you are taking people with little or no experience in a trade and transforming them into fully competent employees. It is challenging because you need to adapt training to match each students ability to perform the tasks required. The reward is that when you finally click with the student and are able to see that they finally "got it" and can now go out and get the job they are looking for.

Would highly not recommend working here and especially not studying here

Not an ideal learning or working environment. Not enough tables or chairs for students. Computers, projectors and internet don’t work for staff members. Management was unorganized and not professional. Learning environment was below satisfactory. Students unhappy and got yelled at by staff. Dirty environment.

Pros

International students were nice

Cons

Everything

Review

Graduated Veterinary Technician in 2013. The school was great and the program was amazing. It helped me in my after school jobs such as vet clinic and volunteer opportunities. I got a sense of dead lines and making sure the animals were properly taken care of. Administrating medication and over all care was met for all animals.

Company is slightly disorganized when planning or implementing classes. Otherwise okay to staff and students, does it best as a small school.

Great job environment

Even though my position as a Wellness Center attendant had me working mostly by myself, I still found that I wasn't ever really working alone. The maintenance crew, teachers, supervisors, so many people would stop by and interact with me. In this job, I learnt how to work on a team. When I mention working on a team I mean more than just working with other Wellness Center employees. Not only was I asked to help with a few things outside the Wellness Center, but I was also helped by others from outside my department whenever I needed something. This was a great eye-opener for me. I realized that the people here aren't just in it for themselves, or just to get a pay, they all have the same goal: to make this a better environment to work, learn, and live. There isn't really anything difficult about this job, as it doesn't require much, but the most enjoyable part would have to be interacting with members as well as anyone who stops by.

Pros

Great team, fun environment, low stress
