Excellent place to work at, even though as a student-worker, the pay is only at minimum wage

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I've worked at a couple different projects as a student and later as an alumnus of Seneca- part time and temp jobs. They pay minimum wages, but the learning as far as job skills go, is excellent. They treat every employee with respect and supervisors always go out of their way to help employees with their professional goals and aspirations. The workplace culture is flexible, positive and encouraging, while keeping focused on excellent output.

Pros

Free and delicious meals!

Cons

There's no employee parking for temporary workers

Great place to work but there are downfalls!

Working at Seneca has been the best experience! Your co workers are great, the management is super supportive and there is room to advance or easily switch departments if you wanted to try something new. I would say the only down fall is that sometimes theres lack of work and it can be boring. I do not find my job meaningful or fulfilling. Maybe other positions in the college would.

Pros

Great Co workers, Pay, Benefits, Management

Cons

Boring, Long Hours, No motivation

Excellent organization

Good management, high level of education and standards, care for students and employees. A typical work day with Seneca was a relaxed environment. I always loved my job. I always felt good about myself and my job I did. I worked with students and helped them I learned so much from. I would like to have another job where I can learn from as well.

Great environment, friendships are easy and fun to make.

Enjoy the classroom atmosphere at all my Seneca classes. I can teach the required curriculum using my own style and experience. Get consistently superior student reviews in all my classes and enjoy the collaborative atmosphere with my fellow professors and staff.

Pros

Good / fair scheduling for my teaching hours.

Cons

Being a partial load professor does not guarantee my hours from semester to semester.

Fun if stressful

This job was specifically for the small urban farm on Seneca Newnam campus. I was mostly left alone to care for the farm, but I ran occasional tours and spoke at events.

teaching at Seneca is a learning process

I joined Seneca as a french teacher and I was in charge of implementing the Arabic course. It was an honour and a source of pride to be the first one to start the Arabic course that is still running and attracting more student each semester. I really enjoyed working at Seneca with such a wonderful team.

Formal place to work.

The everyday routine is calm and the supervisor/directors are always ready to help. You can find people to guide you with attitudes and words to help you moving forward.

Seneca is a great place to work

A very supportive environment with a great training process. They pay for your waiting/training period as well. Currently, we're in a tough time because of Covid 19 but Seneca College is controlling the situation and the benefits for staff well.

It was a very short experience as an intern.

I had a positive experience, however this was a very short internship. I cannot say more about things like career planning and/or benefits. I think my pay was fair considering I was working as a student.

Challenging to work

Workplace culture unhealthy and challenging to work with groups of people with little communication. Inconsistent work and insecure hours. High stress not understanding when the next contract might be. No consistency to be able to build relationships and build skills.
