Huge potential for learning and personal growth
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Telerobotics and Fluid Power lab – 19 January 2014
Very little oversight on any project, self-motivated, and self-guided work is the primary methods employed.
I learned Matlab coding, C++ coding, robotics, embedded systems, Arduino based development, interfacing between hardware and software.
The hardest part of working at the university is self motivation, very little guidance or encouragement is given, so to complete a project you must push yourself.
Negative reinforcement management style

A good place to work if you enjoy student interaction.
Communications (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 12 October 2017
The university offers a good salary and benefits, however, hard work and commitment are not typically recognized.
Workplace culture depends highly on which department you work for.

Great job to prepare for academia, annoying paperwork
Grader/Marker (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 17 September 2017
I really enjoyed working as a grader while completing my undergrad. It let me grow as a student and as a writer. I disliked the way your hours were submitted as it was often a hassle.
