Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 April 2017
This school taught me everything I know and aside to giving me the opportunities to connect within my social sphere, it also provided some very unqiue learning experience (i.e. the labs that I volunteered in). It was nice to get to test out the waters in certain roles before committing to them.
Excellent workplace environment with great staff members
Student Recruitment Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 April 2017
Depending on the time of the shift, I would be asked to do various tasks. Whether it's giving a tour to 20+ prospective applicants, answering phone calls and even emails or even sitting down with an applicant in the office and explaining them the procedure of how to apply at Canada's #1 University. The workplace culture is extremely friendly and very live. The hardest part of the job would probably be able to communicate your thoughts to a person who doesn't necessarily understand English fluently - it would usually require a lot of patience to handle situations like these. But overall, working here is a very enjoyable and fun workplace to be in.
Student Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 April 2017
Hart House was sensitive to the student ambassador's study-work life balance. The perk of being a student ambassador was that it was your job to monitor events and makes sure they were organized and fun.
Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 April 2017
The University of Toronto is an excellent work environment in order to get to know your fellow professors and lab mates. The benefits they give you are excellent and the environment itself is relaxing but stressful at times.
Accountant Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 April 2017
A server to students and other customers daily. Ive had the opportunity of serving and working besides Canada's prestige government officials. It is a great place to network and build your name and reputation while being at work.

Orientation Leader (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 April 2017
My experience working with Uoft has been positive, volunteering as an orientation has helped me grow and develop my people skills. The overall experience was positive because we (the leaders) were provided with a comfortable amount of leniency in order to be able to work efficiently without being too overwhelmed
Mathematics Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 30 March 2017
A typical day at the university when I would TA would consist of me holding tutorials and teaching students material that the professor taught the week before. I would answer any questions they had and marked their assignments/quizzes/tests. I thoroughly enjoy teaching mathematics, and have no complaints about this job.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 March 2017
It really depends in what lab you are employed in, but I find that working at OISE and working in specific labs at U of T can lead to a great working environment. It can be productive and fun at the same time, and it can be flexible in terms of hours.
Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 26 March 2017
University of Toronto is an excellent place of work especially if you are already a student there. As a teaching assistant I was able to use my own experiences and the knowledge I had gained to guide students to be successful in one of the most difficult undergraduate courses, namely Organic Chemistry!
