Computing Services Advisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 April 2018
Not a tough environment to work in if you enjoy customer service and working with people. It has peak periods which could get overwhelming but overall it is a good experience. I loved my managers and co workers
Food Prep/Serving/Dishwasher (Current Employee) – Glendon College, Toronto – 16 April 2018
Aramark hires people who are lost in space as managers/supervisors and I was very qualified and started at minimum wage and 8 years later was still at minimum wage---only stayed because I liked being around students and University close by.
Fun workplace and easy to communicate with customers
Residence Night Porter (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 April 2018
My job at the university was a demanding and challenging job but my colleagues made it a fun and bearable experience. During the event of an emergency, we had to call the securities and paramedics and be able to handle it from there while also making sure no one unauthorized entered the building. Time management was a must and we had to keep our work space clean and organized.
Accounting Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 April 2018
A typical day of work consists of coming into the office and getting the work from my supervisor. Afterward, we pick a computer and complete the work that was given. Questions were typically self-answered as there a manual, and independence was encouraged. However, the supervisors were very willing to help when needed.
Residence Head Night Porter (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 April 2018
Amazing place to work in. You can study at this job, not too time consuming. It is perfect for a student trying to manage their time well. The pay is not too high because the work is divided amongst a lot of people but that is why it is an easily manageable job.
Productive and fun work place with communication exercises
Annual Fund Ambassador (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 2 April 2018
the work day starts off with a fun, team building exercise including games/questions. I learned a crucial skill of communicating with people, building rapport, and handling objections. The culture of the workplace is competitive which keeps everyone on their toes and work hard towards getting a donation from alumni. A difficult aspect of the job is handling various alumni's objections and negative reactions during the calls, however it did help me to become more professional in handling tough situations with confidence.
Section Leader (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 March 2018
I enjoy teaching, but my classes are suspended; due to York University's inability to offer a living wage, proper benefits, and at this point, even protect us from violence and internal sabotage on the picket line from their hired thugs.
Data Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 February 2018
Not competitive like other universities. Grad students are getting incompetent with every year. Hopefully, now that the university is connected to the subway, it wouldn't take hours to escape this remote and boring place.
Annual Fund Ambassador (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 February 2018
It is a very supportive community, the staff members are very friendly and open-minded. You can gain many valuable skills such as communication, rapport building, and being able to handle a variety of objections. It is an overall great experience.

Director (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 February 2018
While upper level educational institutions should be places of exploring and in depth learning, unfortunately when faculty and staff are focused on themselves and take an entitlement mentality, only the students suffer.
