Great work, if you can get it.
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 21, 2014
I got this job because a professor in our department got a grant, and was able to use it to organize a conference. He was a fantastic employer who mentored and clearly cared a great deal about his graduate student research assistants. He organized a first-rate conference, too.

Expect sabotage and deception.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: well recognized university
Cons: cut-throat environment.
A typical day at work: you work on your own or in a group that generally comprises people with a similar background.
What you learned: People have no principles and will do whatever it takes to get ahead and generally try to crush anyone they can to get ahead.
Management: Professors get away with anything.
Your co-workers: Will use you, and deceive – more... you if it helps them get ahead unless you are of the same background as them.
The hardest part of the job: Avoiding mal intent.
The most enjoyable part of the job: accomplishing assignments or courses or publishing research. – less

Interesting place to work where I learned about the medical field
Room Monitor (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: free food and learning new things
Cons: long days
Throughout the day I would sit in on lectures, and help with questions involving directions and times. I leaned about costumer service and, how to deal with difficult people. My co-workers were very easy to work with and were very helpful when I was confused about something or had a problem. The hardest part of my job was the long days and some difficult – more... participants. The best part of my job was learning new things. – less
