Is not a place to work if you like consistency and clear job duties.

Parking pass is almost a weeks pay. Management turnover has created chaos. Jobs are changing so quickly that you are always trying to figure out what to do next. Other duties as assigned is more common than it should be.

Was a good job right up until the contract ended. No communication from management at IT desk.

The IT desk was pretty relaxed. The students and faculty who come in are all very nice. Was a great job to balance between work and school because they only give you 12 hours per week, and according to the union contract they have to work around your schedule. However, no one bothered to let me know that my contract had ended, so I was left hanging for about a week in limbo. The job was great -- management, not so much.

Really Lovely Place!

The work, I found, was good and challenging. Plenty of support, so you never felt overwhelmed or underappreciated. And their focus on work-life balance was strong, always wanting to make sure you and your mental health were the top priority.


Remote work, lots of workshops, and good benefits

Great place for a student to work.

The school is required to work around your schedule if you are a student so it takes a lot of stress off during the semester. They can only give you about twelve hours per week due to their collective agreement, but it works out depending on how intensive your program is. Overall, great place to work if you are a student.

Even though I had a seasonal job, my experience was really good.

I worked at the St Lawrence College for 5 years in a row, and even though my job position was seasonal, I had a good experience as a teacher. The payment was fair enough and the coworkers, the secretary, etc., were very collaborative.

Great supportive environment

Great place to work and teach at, very progressive learning institution and a very healthy environment in all ways. As a part time faculty I am supported in my own development as an instructor and feel very welcomed

Only a good company if on Kingston Campus

Poor management. Little job security for most employees . Good caring coworkers who succeed in spite of the organisation, not because of it. Unrealistic expectations and definitely don't be good at your job- you will have to do everyone else's- including your manager's. No support. No resources for doing your job properly. High turn over and burn out rate. "Students first" only applies to Kingston Campus.


Good people work there who truly care about students


Management is horrible. HORRIBLE. Unless you are applying for Kingston Campus, don't. now.

Long hours.

At St. Lawrence college the working environment was very acceptable and it had all the three dimensions of EDI covered at workplace.

The working environment with the WICE team was very warm and professional. As being a student jumping from student environment to workplace environment the transition has always been difficult. I had many things to learn as how to overcome my mistakes and how not to make or repeat the same mistake.

Very high turnover

Very high staff turnover. Management played favorites. Demanded loyalty but did not return it. Lack of communication between staff and management. During busy times management hid in the office, rarely helped out. Micromanagement of pennies while dollars were wasted.


Good hours with seniority


expected to be available anytime with no notice

Creative, productive and a pleasant work place

A pleasant environment to work at, with available opportunities of self development. If a teacher manages his/her time a bit carefully, one can have ample oppertunity of establishing healthy interaction with the students, which may prove very supportive in improving students leaning capabilities


Lecture rooms equipped with necessary tools and equipments


Access to the needed software requires to be more easily available

Great caring College

My experience as a part time instructor has been very positive. The staff is very supportive and truly care about the students and instructors. Great facility in Cornwall.

great place to work part time

a typical day at work would look like, you get there, you are greeted by lovely staff and you proceed to check in and out books and follow any other assigned tasks such as shelf reading. the most difficult park would be knowing how the printers worked and all of the printer functions.

Friendly Environment

I had my placement at St. Lawrence, during that time I have learned a lot as the staff were understanding, friendly and supportive, the workplace culture is amazing

productive but stressful

as a student, we of course did not get paid but professors tended to be very 'clique' like and would pick which students they liked and which ones they did not. Many are treated unfairly in the nursing program.

I work on my own pace and the head of the departments are very helpful.

I work as a peer tutor and a note taker for the College. The students and the teachers pick me to do the job, I have not applied to do it. It made me acknowledge my own strength and trust in my ability by having the students and instructors nominate me to do the job. I thank the students and the instructors for believing in me.

Fun environment

This was a volunteer position that allowed me to try teaching and hang with my profs. It was not difficult, the coordinators had everything set out and ready for demonstrations.
