• I enjoyed the people I worked with.
• A friendly and fun atmosphere and I actually enjoyed going to meetings each week.

• I felt the leadership team was great as well.

• They knew all of the members on a first name basis and tried to make those personal connections, like what program we were in and what midterms or exams we have.


• I liked how you could express anything on your mind about the topic at hand.

• Everyone’s opinion was discussed no matter how silly the idea was.

• The leader of the meeting would love to hear everything we had to say.

• I felt very welcomed there.


• I felt I was not challenged enough at the job.

• While I did enjoy working there and appreciate the skills I developed while with the board,

• I felt my skill set could be better utilized elsewhere.

• Mainly focused on marketing, but I am an accounting and finance student with capable knowledge of using excel, word and working with numbers such accounts receivables, internal costing decisions and reconciliations.


• There was no room for advancement in the board.

• Even if you gave the most creative ideas to dramatically improve the marketing of residence, there was no higher position to promote to.

• Wanted the opportunity for more responsibility if the team leaders saw that I could handle it.

Manager (Former Employee) - Kitchener-Waterloo, ON
The most toxic and unhealthy workplace culture that I've been in to date. Management and supervisors need a serious overhaul to stop the turnover and negative environment.

Willing to work with what I have going on in my personal life. Always making sure I am doing okay, and checking in with me, how work is going and my work related comments.
