repetative tedious job but meet new people all the time, students from different cultures
ESL Teacher (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 30 April 2018
great job with amazing salary but waiting for contract renewal every 3 months. Hours and schedule change, very unstable position. Love the manager, old coworkers very uncooperative, no compassion, no collegiality.
Experience (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 4 March 2018
I went to school at Trent University but worked a short while as a lab technicians assistant. The job was good and it gave some experience as to what happens when you, as a student are not in a traditional lab setting in school.
College Liaison (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 3 February 2018
It was awesome to work for one of the colleges at Trent University. Boss was super kind, they work around your student timetable, and you are always learning new things about what you can do better in the job. Management is great.
Lifeguard and Swim Instructor (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 31 January 2018
The athletics department is poorly managed and it was a very poor experience working under the higher-ups at Trent. The pay is abysmal for a lifeguarding position and the school is clearly taking advantage of desperate students.
Peer Tutor (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 12 January 2018
Perfect school size and high quality education. High quantity and quality of programs and events to help students maintain mental health and to network with potential future employers and graduate schools.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 9 October 2017
Supportive workplace with ability to experience teaching in different departments Little mobility or job security as contract based Good opportunity to work with individuals of all different backgrounds and interests
Student (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 13 June 2017
I didn't actually work at Trent University, I was just a student. For some reason Indeed is making me write this review. However - many of my friends did work for the University, and from what I gather they all enjoyed it for the most part.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 10 February 2017
Trent University Durham’s 2016 incoming class is the largest in our 40+ year history. This fall, the university welcomed more than 400 new incoming students and bolstered the student body population to well over 1,000 students. As a result, more student-life activities have also been introduced, including an intercollegiate soccer program.
Small University that lacks graduate organizations
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 16 November 2016
Trent is a fairly disorganized place to work if you are a graduate student.
There is very little administrative help, and when there is, it is often hard to deal with. During my time at this University, every teaching position I got was very last minute and it was hard to get straight answers out of department assistants for available positions if you were a student over -time.
