The federation university job was very good for my current job since I haven't been there for over 2 years. But I loved the experience. And it was a very good place to work.

I enjoyed the culture as a student so I applied for a casual job. There was regular phone calls to check up on my work but I worked unsupervised by peers.
Pros
I enjoyed working with students face to face.
Cons
It was difficult to answer questions from students on social media at all hours.

Working as a student mentor is productive with very relaxed, collaborative and supportive work environment. Although, since the class is of short hours, hourly rate might seem a little less.

This system dose not seem to identify that the criteria is inappropriate for education activities. My experience a Federation University was excellent, however, I did not work there, and therefor can not rate my time there in terms of employment.

I loved working as a Personal Care Assistant, it was both challenging and for filling. I completed duties such as; working closely with people who needed daily assistance with hygiene and mobility, cleaning and meal time assistance. I left this job because the hours no longer suited my life style.
Pros
For filling and rewarding
Cons
Not enough hours

Decent place to work but the people make it better. Can be difficult to deal with those higher up who don't like to do much or fulfil their position but otherwise okay,

The most enjoyeable part of the job was assisting students. From enrolment to graduation. The change to a one shop ask all has been challenging, and not as productive as assistance in the schools.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor managers in sections
