Excellent working conditions
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 29 July 2015
My job at SFU is to organize, implement, and teach several 100- and 200-level university English courses to cultural diverse groups of students, many of whom are international students in the processing of learning critical reading, writing, and oral English skills at an academic level.
The working conditions are SFU are first class. The hours are light, which allows sufficient time for thorough preparation and grading, and the university goes out of its way to help both its students and staff.
The only downside to being a TA at SFU - or any other academic institution - is that there is zero job security.
