Working at Ryerson is amazing, being a recent graduate and alumni of Ryerson I couldn't be happier being here. Everyone is so accommodating and understanding.This position allows for a lot of freedom in your working hours, provided that the work is done for your supervisor when you have your meetings. Great place to work.Very friendly environment. Everyone willing to help and guide.
Everything is on schedule.No pressure on employments.good accessibility to downtown.A typical days of work is really interesting, since we get to meet lots of different people every time and have to face new problems all the time. In some cases, we are given instructions, on how to do. But in many cases, we have to improvise and solve the issue.
Pros
Adjustable Schedule
Cons
minimal advancement

Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 June 2017
Good place to be, Good work-life balance. Could be more productive if all "workers" were not student and if deadlines were tighter. Students need to get out and contribute more to the industry.

Very Short Term and Very Little Hours
Ted Rogers Leadership Centre (TRLC) Intern (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 June 2017
I loved this job, and I love Ryerson. This particular job was very very part time, so that's the only reason I gave "salary/benefits" 3/5 stars. This was a great job to have while enrolled as a student.

A learning experience for myself and students
Teaching and Grading Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 June 2017
A typical day at work consisted of running seminars for around 20+ students, assisting them with course material as well as responding to specific questions they might have. I also conducted office hours in which students could partake in one-on-one time if they required additional assistance.
The hardest part of the job was being sure I could provide every student enough time to ensure that they fully understood the course material - this was attained by ascertaining if multiple students had the same questions, and addressing them in a clear manner for the whole group. I enjoyed the students' enthusiasm when they finally grasped a particularly complex concept which had previously given them difficulty

Great experience for students
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 June 2017
A fantastic place to learn, work with peers, and help the next generation. The workload and "typical" day changes with who you are working for. The hardest part is that it's not really a full-time gig and it can be hard to schedule work around class schedules.
Pros
Good colleagues, location, and experience
Cons
Not a lot of hours

Student Identification Verification Personelle (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 June 2017
The position I held was temporary and hence the job security was low and low chance of advancement. The job however was really fun, and the staff was excellent, helpful and enthusiastic. The hardest part of the job was dealing with students that do not adhere to policies and rude. Management was rarely around, but even if they were it was very laid back!
Pros
Make your own schedule
Cons
No advancement opportunities/Temporary position
