Great 'problem solving' oriented, bigly competitive, and multicultural University.
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 20 October 2017
Salaries are marginal, but this is general problem of all Universities and Colleges across the Ontario. Working hrs are virtually unlimited, definitively not a 9-5:45 job, but rather long haul mission.
If you love education process, science, debate on any subject this is the place to be !! :)
Extremely stimulating environment
Long work hrs, work overload, for marginal salary.
Great team environment, constantly learning and travelling with the team during school term
Student Trainer (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 25 April 2016
During the school term, I'm one of the fortunate selected few that gets to be a student therapist for the university of waterloo varsity hockey team.I love the close team environment and the unpredictable situations I get put in, whether it's massaging team members or treating a new injury, Every day is fun and enjoyable and I'm constantly learning more from my mentor (athletic therapist)
Engaging and fun experience working with various people throughout the campus.
Residence Advisor (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 19 April 2016
It was a few hours during the day and I had the opportunity of communicating with people and answering their questions to university life and academic balance. My coworkers were fun people to be around and work and we had a great team of people working to provide parents and students with the right information. The most difficult part of the job would be not getting paid. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting a variety of people and helping others out.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 12 April 2016
I worked as a research assistant in a lab on campus. It was as many hours a week as I wanted and it was a great way to get involved. I was able to make a bit of money at school as well as build up a network of professionals. I wish I would have started earlier.
Fast-paced environment, changing on a day-to-day basis
Science Outreach Associate (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 5 April 2016
As I was a volunteer at the university, I was not paid. Nonetheless, this experience allowed me to learn greatly. I was constantly exposed to different individuals whom I was able to share with the interest of science. On a typical day at work, I was visiting an elementary school and was prepared to show several scientific demonstrations to children.
experience as employee depends strongly on situation
IT Director, Faculty of Arts (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 29 March 2016
Inconsistent leadership, fledgling ethical behaviour and management/leadership training supports, and poorly understood policies leave employees at the mercy of their direct supervisor's level of competence and engagement.
Student Employee (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 24 February 2016
This work place provided me (a student at the University of Waterloo), to manage my work life and my student life with ease. Working in the same location where I lived (student dorms), was a good transition for me into the work place in an unfamiliar University environment. Overall, it was a great experience.
Marketing Analyst (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 29 January 2016
You're basically around people like yourself all the time. Everybody usually gets along and are always determined to fulfill their responsibilities rather quickly. Everyone is usually willing to help out and management is flexible with your schedule.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 18 November 2015
Fun place to work with some what supportive management. It wasn't always about the numbers but about how the customers and staff felt. I most enjoyed about working there was how you could learn new things from the other staff and how they learned things from you.
