I worked part time at Varsity College, both times I was employed there. I followed the schedule set out for me and there were no issues. For the Tutoring Job I was able to assist other students with any issues they may have had. With the IT Support job, I learnt a lot more, like how to add a computer to a domain and installing windows from a custom image. The most enjoyable part of the IT Support job was being sent to help someone with an IT issue, and conversely the most difficult is trouble shooting a very complicated issue when you need your supervisor to help you. Management in both scenarios were very good.
Pros
I gained some IT skills, and people skills
Cons
My jobs were part time so they weren't for too long, however I would galdly go again

A normal day would start with the arrival of colleagues in the main area of the building. A team meeting would start with a recap of the previous days results and what to correct or look forward to in order to achieve the monthly goal.
I learned how to be a vital team member and being consistent in my work ethic. The management was very professional due to the fact that there was high level of respect from everybody which automatically made work culture relaxed but competitive.

hardest part of the job was being able to maintain a level of calmness when surrounded or approached by frustrated clients.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great and humble colleagues.

I throughly enjoyed working with the staff and got on well with the students. My function as an invigilator at IIE was a tlme well spent. The responsibilities of managing a exam was sometimes daunting but enjoyable.

Varsity college is a great place to work but many late nights during registation. Slot of pressure but also a great environment. The only problem is depending on campus and title your salary can vary quite a bit. Sometimes to the very low end but other times to the mediate to high end.

Varsity College is good company for growth and their service is excellent as their first priority is the students and parents.

Great place to work, enjoyed it immensely. There is a hard working culture but you are remunerated well. The staff members are all professional and Management treats everyone fairly.

I am a perfectionist who meets deadlines. Always ask for clearer understanding of issues. Start work early or leave late so as to produce quality work.

Everyone works hard but at the same time, they're all very positive and willing to assist any one that is new to the company. Great workplace culture. The hardest part of the job is learning to deal with being micro-managed at first (if you're not used to it).

No growth at Varsity college as an employee , You can only advance into a higher position if you are sucking up to Management, HR, Principal or you socialize with them after hours. ( Drinking Buddies )
Pros
Employees with 10 year service or who is middle age, dont stand a chance of advancing at varsity college
Cons
An employee who is likeble by principal, hr, and vice principal, his or her relative get first privilege in getting vacancy at varsity college. Its who you know??

It is a fun place to work at, with a re;axed ambiance. A typical day would consist of going to Varsity College and tutoring students. Students were friendly and paid attention. Time management skills were learnt as I was still a student there.

I’ve worked at the job twice for a period of 3 months each. I was able to work on my people skills and how to work in a team. It was an awesome experience and grateful for the opportunity.
