      Pros

      Incredible students, some great staff

      Cons

      Toxic work environment. It did not feel like higher up management actually cared about the kids, it was all about making profit. They put a lot of pressure on management to police students and other staff. A lot of favourtism. At one point we were all given small raises and told not to talk about it with each other. Turns out we a had different amounts and it had nothing to do with seniority or work ethic (and this is coming from someone who was a favourite).

      Pros

      I enjoyed working with my colleagues and the international students. Great summer position!

      Cons

      Sometimes the work schedule may change last minute due to unforeseeable events like bad weather, traffic, etc. However, the coordinators did a great job with communicating when there is a schedule change.
