Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 September 2017
The university of Calgary offered me the ability to one my teaching skill sets, and development new tools for delivering effective lessons. I became a more confident teacher under the guidance of the different lab managers I worked under.
Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 December 2016
Working at University of Calgary was my first international experience. I enjoyed teaching and communicating with students. However I always felt that co-workers were rude and and biased. The hardest part was to make them understand that how it felt to an international student far away from his/her family, when they behaved differently with us.
It is a nice place to work except for poor leadership
Analyst (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 August 2016
If you are a self-starter, this is a place for you. There is no training and no share of knowledge. This place is full of politics and favoritism especially with the executive/directors/associate directors. If you get along with your manager, director, you may be able to retain your job and get promoted in no time. If you get on their "bad list", you will be gone no matters how good you are at your job. The only great thing about this place is there are tons of nice people if you know how to net-work. The benefits are great here.
Alaska Field Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 July 2016
The field survey was very eye opening to Archaeological jobs and requirements. Very labour intensive, detail oriented, requires prior experience or extensive teaching and training. Difficulties- accuracy and recording of site material and data collection Enjoyable aspects - putside all of the time, discovering the past, making inferences on past cultures and human interactions
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB (Doha) – 21 June 2016
This was the worst, the absolute worst place I have ever worked. The HR department leadership calls faculty "dumb". People are bullies and the atmosphere is toxic. I have nothing good to say about this place. I wish I had never gone to work there.

Student Ombudsman (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 March 2016
Great place to work. Poor structured of leadership.3 bosses in 12 months-4 office locations in 16 months. I was an independent office and sole practitioner, so high volume, high stress...LOW support from upper management. Working with students was the HIGHLIGHT...resolving disputes and seeing them make a way forward. Politics with Student Union made job untenable.
Poorly structured job, Bad Manager, Conflict between SU and Admin.
