Service provider (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON8 June 2018
The institution is more interested in filling seats then the quality of education. Post-secondary at Queen's has become a business first (marketing experts are in high demand).

Horrible Employer!
Queen's Employee (Current Employee) –  Kingston, ON8 March 2018
Queen's has a positive face value in the community as being a "Great Employer"

The truth is, they are like a drunken step parent that we are not allowed to talk about out of fear of the repercussions we will face.

Queen's is poisoned with feminist doctrine and sexism.
With 85% of the workforce being female and HALF of the upper hierarchy being female. Being a female is the first checkbox asked when applying for any job.

The HR department is feminist run.
The Equity board is feminist run.

The university is so riddled with sexist feminist propiganda and false victimhood it makes working there very uncomfortable.

There is an overabundance of underqualified people in jobs making more than they should, and the people who are working hard are under paid and under appriciated.

The politics are toxic.
Pros
They have good benefits.
Cons
Everything else!

Great teaching experience.
English Language Instructor (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON21 September 2017
I was hired to work a part-time short-term summer contract teaching ESL for academic purposes.
The staff was clear from the beginning that this would be a non-renewable contract, but I was okay with that.
I wanted to get experience, and a current reference.
I really found this to be a great experience, and the pay was great.
My supervisor provided all of the details regarding the days, hours, rate of pay, and details.
All of this turned out to be accurate so this was a well-organized workplace to work for, and I loved it.
My supervisors allowed for lots of creativity in the classroom, which was awesome.
I would highly recommend this educational facility to anybody.
It was a great experience.
Pros
Great supporting staff, well-organized, and great pay.
Cons
No parking, and lots of parking tickets.
