A fun workplace with various science entertainments.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 June 2018
working at Ontario Science Center was one of the best experience in my life. I enjoyed the work and also earned experience of the basic things. In this volunteer job, I learned how to cooperate with the team members and also learned how to communicate with customers. The management of this place was really good.
Protective Security Officer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 January 2017
The OSC takes great care in integrating their employees into the workplace when they are first hired. I found I was not only readily accepted, but encouraged to be myself and feel free to ask questions of anyone. Training is current and relevant to the job, and is always being updated so as not to fall behind in the industry.
I enjoy the culture that has been created at the OSC and hope that I can instill that in any other place I work in the future.
Exhibit Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 February 2016
The Ontario Science Centre is a great company and institution. Working there was an amazing experience. The staff was friendly and inviting. And getting to watch free OMNIMAX movies was great. I greatly enjoyed showing others the wonders of science and technology. However, I found that the building was very large, so at times it could prove to be quite difficult to traverse to a different exhibit. I feel like their management is done quite well, everyday's schedule is well organised. Unfortunately, the job I had was only for a predetermined fixed amount of time. Maybe one day I'll return as a full-time worker.
Overall a great place to do volunteer work to get your hours
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Toronto – 29 June 2015
Attend early at 8am to prepare for the children to come to the summer camp then end at 4pm. Teach and help campers with activities. Visit exhibits at times while keeping watch of them and making sure they don't wander or run into other exhibits.Sometimes worked in the office to take calls and perform other duties. Learned to be patient with children, customer service, memorization of the facility and much more. Management was quite organized, efficient and understanding. Co-workers were all fine people to work with, fun people and reliable. Hardest part of the job was to keep the children under control. Most enjoyable part of the job was to see the fascination that children have towards science and to see the amount of fun they have as they smile at you.
