Title says it all, slow to react and usually blames budgets for non-action taking. It is a government job, and salaries follow a scale. If you like working for a union, you will like this job.

I worked at Vanier on hourly contract basis. Compared to full time teachers contractual work is unstable. Hourly rates look good but many unpaid hours are required to complete a contract.

Everyone is so nice, friendly and helpful. It's an environment where anyone can easily adapt and get into since everyone is open minded. When I first joined, I got to know everyone really easily since everyone present has similar goals.

Provided support, encouragement, and information to students in their department who are just beginning the graduate program. Stayed in touch with your new student group by periodically sending follow up message through text message platform. Refered students to different academic resources in campus for specific issue.

Management will crush you down if you show them you are more knowledgeable then them. Technicians and trades person are working so hard everyday to "feed" the professionals who do nothing rather than "helping" students and college.

Easy job, laid back bosses. It's a no-brainer to apply there you're paid 15$ an hour for very little work. The only downside is that you'll only be working about 2 hours a week.
Pros
excellent pay, non-demanding job
Cons
Few hours

I was born in China and grew up speaking Chinese. Therefore, Chinese is my mother tongue. The February 2016 would be a great step in my life; I received a job offer as a Mandarin tutor from the Languages & Cultures department at Vanier College. Now, I tutored already Mandarin three semesters and taught four different people. This experience permitted me to examine Mandarin from a different perspective; that of a non-Chinese trying to learn this unique language. I discovered that Mandarin is a very hard language, but nevertheless original and fun. The different nationalities and personalities of my tuttees permitted me to compare mandarin with other languages and to approach Chinese cultures from different angles. In conclusion, being a Mandarin tutor would help me greatly to become a good pedagogue.

It was fun because I working with many volunteers who are also students. The social aspect of it really made it enjoyable. Making sure the place was clean was probably the hardest thing to do, because of the amount of snacks people bring.

I would start in the morning every weekend and do the dishes, then I would prepare all the meals and then bring them upstairs where they would be served.

It's a non-profit volunteer work that I did. I was not paid for helping around. I simply make sure that the people with "down" syndrome do their daily tasks according to expectations. Everyone is nice and friendly, I always go there with a smile on my face, for they are happy to see me as much as I am happy to see them. I volunteered with other students there, all for free. I learned to be more visual, for I need to make sure that they do their work properly. I need to be patient because it is not always easy to come to an understanding with people with "down" syndrome, it also happens that you have to ask them to repeat themselves multiple times what they have previously said.
Pros
Very flexible time.

I was a phone representative for the student helpline during registration periods. Every day would start at 8:30am and would entail answering the phone all day answering questions that students would have about registration and helping them learn the Cegep system. Absolutely loved this job, and the people I worked with.
Pros
Fun job
Cons
None
