Archivist (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 4 August 2017
Work is demanding and opportunities for advancement are not dependent upon good performance. Little infrastructure in place to support employees, though you have a lot of freedom to direct yourself in your work.
barista/supervisor (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 4 June 2017
Any student studying at the university can apply. The hours are extremely flexible. Downside for some is that it's seniority based and so it might be hard to get more hours in the first semester or two. The people are great, the managers are all great. Many outlets to work at.

Communications Coordinator (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 3 May 2017
Open concept office with lots of pods of desks. I have my own office but it can get noisy as some groups prefer to have standup meetings in their clusters. It’s a big office, employing over 100 people.
Of course it goes without saying that working on campus lends itself to a great work-life balance. It’s easy to head over to CARSA or around the chip trail at lunch.
Great opportunity for new students to meet other students and to become more confident in their University life.

It was a great way to meet other students and community members and to develop acquaintanceships and even friendships with them, especially with co-workers.

FOOD SERVICE WORKER/COOK (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 10 March 2016
Working as a team, you provide the best quality food to student residents. Management was always there to help out. I learned how to provide great customer service to students, who are not necessarily pleasant and polite. The hardest part of the job was being around some co-workers who were not pulling their weight. The most enjoyable part of the job was being busy all the time.
Sometimes the supervising cooks were a little grouchy
