Friendly, relaxing place

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsFlexible schedule that works around your class times. Great pay. Friendly staff and tasks are not over the top difficult. During quiet hours, there is not much to do. Great pay as a student to make some money throughout the year. Full time summers and part time fall/winters

ConsRepetitive and sometimes very boring. Usually relatively quiet and there is an age-gap with senior advisors. In regards to training, there is a lot of on-the-job learning as opposed to stream-lined training manuals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
