Instrumentation Technologist (Current Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 3, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: salary
Its a university, so the money isn't great, and in my field as a chemist, not much room to advance without a Ph.D. Good benefits, expensive pension plan, but a good plan nonetheless.

Very independent and responsible job
Field/Lab Research Assistant (Former Employee), Calgary, ABApril 28, 2012
As a field/lab assistant the work schedule is very different from any typical 9 to 5 job. Field work is based on the seasons and the weather, lab work is done whenever field work cant be done. This was a very independent job experience, where I learned to set and accomplish personal goals and deadlines. Highly self motivating.
