Research Assistant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 17 November 2017
I learned a lot at Western as a graduate student, through classes, directly from my supervisor and peers or independently through my thesis. I found the earth science department at Western to be very supportive and the work while I was there to be challenging.
Residence Clerk (Current Employee) – London, ON – 23 September 2017
I enjoy working with the student staff and soph teams and being part of the warm community connections of Western Residences. "Best student experience!" is our motto and we strive to achieve that every day with every interaction.
Western has a progressive and sensitive workplace culture ensuring an inclusive, tolerant and supportive environment and atmosphere
I have learned so much about communicating with people and understanding human behavior and how to be a productive and inspiring member of a vibrant and sensitive community.
The most enjoyable aspect of the job are the people I meet and the staff that I work with on a daily basis.
The hardest part of the job are the long shifts with little to no breaks and the recurring lay off from May to August.
Caretaker (Former Employee) – London, ON – 9 May 2017
The job wasn't explained well - it ended up being a very dirty job that I ended up getting sick from. The job revolved around student housing, no explanation was given of duties at interview. No training was provided or the position as well.
Western University nos brindó las herramientas necesarias para poder hacer nuestro trabajo lo mejor posible. Se nos dio una buena preparación para el trabajo, buena paga, y un buen ambiente de trabajo.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 12 April 2017
Typical TA/Research Assistant position. Research is fine as it depends on the professor you work for which the student should have selected accordingly. TA assignments are time consuming and generally terrible.
