Researcher (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 May 2017
Typically I was required to work independently to complete daily, weekly and monthly goals. I learned how to use adobe photoshop and how to work completely independently while still meeting collective goals and standards.
Researcher (Former Employee) – Civil and Environmental Department – 9 May 2017
Normally working in labs so it's a quiet and calm environment, great equipment and maintenance. I've always liked working there, I feel free to ask whatever I don't know and learn how to properly use the machines. I enjoy lab work, the chemicals, the discoveries, the possibility of creating something new that will be used and help people somehow. The hard part is because sometimes the experiments go around the clock and time is really important so I spent many nights in the lab.
Driver/Youth Worker (Former Employee) – Maskwacis Alberta – 23 April 2017
From making edits, and designs for the School books for the program, and traveling to meetings with other schools promoting the program, as well as going to events to promote program. took some training to become a facilitator, and learned new graphic design techniques. (created posters, cards, etc.) the hardest part was meeting deadlines on a tight schedule, but was always the most enjoyable when a project was complete.

there is a lot of independence to complete tasks. we got to learn many techniques and sometimes procedures go smoothly, other times procedures have problems suddenly happen. patience is needed for the work.
Easy job, great projects, with terrible management
Assistant Researcher (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 March 2017
Between genuinely abusive supervisors, and exploitative pay schemes, it's hard to enjoy coming into work. The projects can be meaningful and despite any number of weekly yelling at you 'meetings' it is impossible to be fired.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 March 2017
Because I was only a volunteer, there's really no salary or benefits but you get free food sometimes. Everyone was supportive and tries to help you any way they can. There weren't much commitments until near Orientation Day.

Training Support Analyst (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 February 2017
A typical day for me includes working with a team but having the ability to complete most job tasks individually. I get to do both administrative and eLearning type work. It can be a very fast paced environment depending on the time of year.
