Productive and Fun Place to Work in

Amazing experience, was a place where I could constantly learn and manage dealing with clients and was a great workplace culture. The most enjoyable part of the job was the team for sure.

good place to work if you're looking for starter job

Far too many politics involved in an organization that should be focused on education. Unfortunately, those who are supposed to be educated eventually lose in the long run.

Racism is endemic

Racism is endemic in the corporate culture of the Organization. Working there as a person of Color, I experienced it personally and when I sought help, I was ignored! I was broken! I don’t recommend this Organization to any person of Color.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

Racists

Rewarding work with students - frustration with systems

A mix of bright and dedicated colleagues - and stressed out/checked out dead wood. The work with students is always rewarding but it's often only possible in spite of management.

Stressful situations and protective gear required upon occasion.

Have nothing negative to say about the company itself. People can start a lot of drama

Have nothing negative to say about the company itself. People can start a lot of drama For no reason. At least in The trade departments it seemed that way. If you get a good crew it could be amazing, but out of no where they might switch your crew and shift. Other than that no complaints.

Pros

Good benefits, job security, good salary

Cons

Shift changes, slow process for a-list, drama

Cons

Bad hours in spring

The Job was Productive

The job starts by 9am and ends 4pm. We were given enough breaks in between these times. I learnt how to arrange laptop chargers neatly, and also enjoyed team work between the everyone else and I. We had free lunches sometimes and Ice cream was kept in the freezer for us to take anytime we wanted to take it and we were asked to take as many as we wanted and the supervisors always restock the freezer if the drinks and ice creams are finished.

Pros

I had free lunches some times, the supervisors are really good and friendly.

Cons

Very slow success

Too many levels of position status until you get permanent full time with benefits (takes at least 10 years for most employees I have spoken to. Too many support public workers they hire and can’t even speak english nor know how to operate computer / work with apps. Union for admin is no help at all so don’t waste your money. Very slow in job position promotion. They hire new support employees that can’t even speak english and their hiring procedures is so unfair. Senior Management and senior teachers are so arrogant / very high ego (two faces I would say), etc...

Fun place for some people, not Occasional teachers.

Some schools have happier staff than others. Principals generally like to hire who they like. The white people are more favoured. Some teachers are not friendly to guests in their school. Students can be very mean to Occasional teachers unless the Principal keeps reminding them to treat their guest teachers with respect.

Cons

Healthcare for Occasional teachers
