Human Resources Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 August 2013
The pay and benefits are beyond good. But, you'd better have iron will and a great way to relieve stress because you'll be pushed to your limits and then some and then some more. It's a hard, fast, and demanding place to be. But honestly, the benefits do make it worth every bit.
Research Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 December 2017
A research associate position is basically a volunteer position which holds out the hope that sometime, someday you might be paid. There is no support for the position through the university - only the professor under whom you work controls that. If you enjoy research for research's sake, it is fun to do, but do not expect recognition or financial rewards.
