Tutor (Former Employee) –  Geelong2 July 2015
I have worked at Deakin for a few years and the culture in the school that I worked in was awful. Everyone was over-worked and miserable. There was a lack of care over the fact that we were teaching material that has not been updates since the 90s, despite the area having gone through extensive transformation. I would never study here again nor work there.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Poor culture among staff.

casual (Former Employee) –  Geelong VIC13 July 2019
As part of my degree (student at Deakin) I pursed an internship in one of Deakin's departments, alongside other students. Following the internship another student and I were given casual positions for the same role. I myself was never even trained for the role they hired me for, however the other person was. I instead was just sitting in the office feeling like a nuisance doing the same thing I had been doing for my internship, not what I was hired to do. I only worked 3 shifts, on the last day they tell me over the phone this was my last. I was never told how long this role was supposed to be and honestly felt this was overall incredibly unprofessional.
Pros
great pay
Cons
the department i worked in
