A workplace that has nice co-workers
Caretaker (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONSeptember 12, 2013
Pros: union, benefits, job security, hourly wage
Cons: night shift hours
A typical day at work would include cleaning washrooms, emptying out garbage bins , cleaning offices , vacuuming , wiping down tables. I have learned in the 9 years I have been at the University that unfortunately some management that work there treat their employees like they are uneducated and beneath them. I believe that management should be boosting – more... their workers morale instead of crushing it. The hardest part of my job would have to be the hours, I work Sun-Thurs from 11:00pm-7:30am so it's tough to have a normal life. I would much rather prefer morning shifts then nights shifts. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people and getting to hear all their stories and past experiences in life. – less

Great place for researcher
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 22, 2013
The project I've been working on is exciting. Usually I design my own devices and experiments to solve problem. I also order all the stuffs I need for my project, including materials, equipments etc. I've learned lots of thing from my co-workers who are dedicated to their researches. They are smart and hard-working people. The hardest part of the job – more... is how to apply my knowledge to real life problems. There are two things in my job I feel the most enjoyable: (1) concept design (2) device prototyping. I really enjoy bringing my idea into the real world. If my deice can be used by others, I will be very very proud of it. – less
