Fast Pace working environment
Student Intern (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 9, 2014
Pros: learned a lot
Cons: stressful
The internship was short but it required someone with a lot of attention with details.

Though it was a fast pace working environment it was also very rewarding with the skills and knowledge being passed down from my superiors.

Challenging and rewarding learning opportunity
Stage Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 2, 2014
Pros: teamwork opportunities and rewarding experiences
Cons: long hours and often unfair pay rates
Working as a stage manager for the Leigha Lee Browne Theatre at the University of Toronto - Scarborough Campus, I worked frequently between and after my classes there. I learned how to manage a variety of different goals and expectations from a number of sources while still maintaining my own integrity and values. I expanded and grew upon my skills in managing a large team of over 20 peers working in the production. Part of my job was often to act as a medium between upper-level employees in leadership positions and actors in less artistically decisive positions. The hardest part of this work was to organize a multitude of schedules in a way that worked collectively for the entire group. I would say the most enjoyable part of this work was growing as a team that worked to pursue the same goals for themselves and each other.

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 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.

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 participants. The best part of my job was learning new things.
