Peer Tutor (Ancien employé) – Oakville, ON – 9 janvier 2019
The management was supportive and encouraging during my tenure. As a Peer Tutor, you manage your own time and appointments so you can take on as much or as little as you want which was great since I was taking 6 courses alongside tutoring. The pay was alot lower than expected and the pay schedule was sometimes weird. They only pay minimum wage usually and limit your maximum hours to 10/week so you probably can't live off what you earn but it was nice for some extra pocket change.

Try getting a bank loan if you just work from contract to contract. Even if you work for years, why should a bank support you if you your job won’t even claim you as one of theirs? Don’t get into academics! The union agreement says partial load jobs have job security, but because there are so many new full timers, which they did NOT hire from partial load, there are fewer and fewer partial load jobs. Management is sympathetic, they will even shed tears when they offer you fewer and fewer hours. If you are faculty, there is no path to promotion.

Part time faculty are place fillers and not valued
