Couldn't have chosen a better institution for my educational and work experience.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB1 November 2016
As a former student at Mount Royal University, I have developed close relationships with my professors, which made it possible for me to be granted the opportunity to work on a peer reviewed journal closely with one of my professors. The professors at this institution are very helpful with helping any students in need. I have attended a few post-secondary institutions in the past and Mount Royal is by far my favorite.

Seasonal Employee (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 August 2016
Mount Royal University is a wonderful place to learn and to work. work typical day was setting up and prepping your work station and clean it up and shutting it down at the end of the day. I learned that students could be pushy and demanding but not to let that ruin your day. Management for food court area at the time cared more about money then workers being happy. Hardest part of the job was dealing with picky customers who changed their order fifteen times after you finish what they wanted and then having to toss the food and start again. Most enjoyable part of the job was free soda fountain drinks and one free staff drink from starbucks or tim hortons.

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 June 2013
Post Secondary is a mess which has a unavoidable trickle down effect. There is a lot of dead weight hanging on - holding spaces in jobs that should be occupied by more qualified people. Lot's of toxic dinosaurs who don't have the interest of MRU or the students in mind. If you can get past all that, it pays well, and there are a ton of perks. A doctor, massage therapists, physical therapists, a free gym membership - at least until they take that away from us :)
