It is my responsibility to teach from both textbook and Powerpoint slides and provide the exams for each class. What I learned is that I love to teach and that I can make a connection with students and even show them that I care and believe in them when they don't believe in themselves. Giving a student who is struggling the ability to meet with you and help this also provides them with hope that they can meet the expectations of post-secondary education. Management was fine. They provided the trust in you to complete the job effectively and were always open to setting up a meeting to speak with you. Workplace culture is very different since it is an educational institution. I kept to myself pretty much as I did not know a lot of staff. I met staff along the way and was able to connect over lunch or coffee but class time and structure creates the inability sometimes to be able to share in meetings or even a coffee.People were friendly and were always willing to help you if you had a question or connection with the proper person to help answer your question. The hardest part of the job was preparing the tests as I would have to prepare different sets so that persons beside each other were not getting the same number to do the test together or falsify their answers. The most difficult part of the job is working with a student who believes that a grade was unjust or explaining to them the consequences of plagiarism and the effects to damaging their school transcript.
Classes in cold rooms
Excellent working environment but be very aware that part time and sessional instructors are paid only for scheduled class time. You are not paid for marking assignments, developing and marking tests, meeting with students, answering/responding to emails, course preparation, etc.You will spend a very large amount of personal time doing work that you are not paid for nor compensated for.
Very good work environment with supportive Program Co-ordinator
You are only paid for your scheduled class time only. Precarious work.

Having the opportunity to assist fellow students and faculty, allows one to sharpen existing skills while learning new ones. Management is always helpful with advice, and they also keep you in the loop with any expected changes in the near future. Co-workers are fun, energetic, high spirited, and have an insatiable thirst for acquiring knowledge.
Can't think of any...
This job at St. Clair College provided me with a team oriented place. We worked as a team. My boss was a great boss, she treated me with a lot of respect, as I did the same. I grew with this job.
team work. excellent co-workers
it was a work study job, which meant after graduation, the job was eliminated
As a general clerk in the registrar's office you face highs and lows in terms of productivity and how busy you are. You meet and work with a lot of people. The company has a lot of opportunity for horizontal as well as vertical movement in terms of job position. There is also alot of opportunities for personal and professional development as you have access to various courses. It's difficult to get in full time and as a part time employee job security is very low.
salary, personal development, job versatility.
hard to get full time, low job security
