Great workplace!
EVENT COORDINATOR (CASUAL) (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC31 January 2017
Great workplace & great team! Being on a casual contract has its downfalls (no benefits, no path to permanency). Over all great environment, non-stressful and great pay. Overtime pay as well. Friendly staff, open and willing to help.

Surveying School Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC29 January 2017
A typical day would start early in the morning on Mount Royal preparing the plots of land for the surveying students, then when the students finish their daily briefing, we meet them outside to supervise and help them in the collection of data and use of the instruments for the remainder of the day.

Good work/Life balnce
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC8 December 2016
.Great for work/life balance however growth opportunity is quasi non-existent.

Pay will not increase (aside from inflation adjustment) unless you actually move to another department altogether.

Promotion will only occur if your supervisor moves around or is promoted; which is very unlikely.
