Camp Youth Facilitator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 February 2018
Had fun getting trained on how to work with the kids. We got lots of training on the life skills the facilitators taught the kids. We got first aid and aquatic first aid for the kids for more security when we were with them.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 January 2018
The experience as a graduate student highly varies depending on several factors such as (but nos exclusive): 1) Supervisor 2) Nature of project 3) Personal situation
The supervisor and the nature of the project can possibly hinder the experience, or boost it. The supervisor-student relationship varies completely depending on the professor, and cannot be described firmly. The nature of the project influences not only on the complexity of the work, but on the funding availability, facilities available, and other material needs. The personal situation is as the name describes, a personal factor.
Can be flexible, good atmosphere among peers
Can be tedious, low income, low accountability held against supervisors
Mailroom Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 January 2018
The cast of characters was an interesting mix. The University prides themselves on equal employment so I got to meet some very wonderful people that came from all walks of life. That was one of the definite perks to my job.
Research Programmer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 8 January 2018
A chill atmosphere with a safe and productive work environment. I worked on a specific project with a tight deadline which meant meeting with a client every week to go over what had left to be done and what could not be accomplished.
Postdoctoral Fellow (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 January 2018
The university was very friendly towards postdoc fellows. The atmosphere was very good for innovation. The professor gave me independence to come up with new ideas and was very supportive during the development of those ideas.
Very productive work environment and good interaction with physician and colleagues along with my supervisor
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 8 November 2017
I am working in an environment with 20+ colleagues. My day consists of answering phone, doing incoming and outgoing mail, faxing from computer, good knowledge of eClinician and Healthquest, exquisite management and physician, all of my colleagues willing to lend a hand when work "piles up" and am knowledgeable of other colleagues positions, scanning into EMR. My job is extremely busy and I thrived on this and had to be exceptionally organized. My most enjoyable part of my job is the medical dictatyping.
Good health benefits; celebrating birthdays; out for lunch occasionally
