Volatile and toxic environment
Overworked and Underpaid (Current Employee), This PlaceOctober 31, 2012
Pros: non
Cons: all
This is a horrible place to work. If the government isn't freezing wages, management is forcing strikes. Sudents and employees alike suffer. All senior leadership is leaving one-by-one--mostly to go to U of T.....Not surprisingly either!
Cutbacks mean you do the work of 3 people, and get paid for one. Everyone is watched like a hawk and scared ro lose – more... their jobs in this economy so it creates a culture of viciousness and backstbbing. – less

The most enjoyable part was getting – more... to know the wonderful staff members employed at York University. – less

An excellent place to work; great benefits and the atmosphere was very employee oriented.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Faculty of Arts and later Faculty of Fine ArtsJanuary 8, 2014

My job was a very busy one. I had diverse responsibilities and the people were great to work with. We mostly worked as a team, but when needed I worked independently as well. The hardest part of the job was dealing with situations where co-workers had problems with each other.

Busy and scholarly workplace
Temp Sec Pool - Admin for Business Studies (Former Employee), York, YO10 5DDNovember 5, 2013
Pros: the benefits of being on a university campus & being able to use them.
Cons: parking was sometimes a problem.
Each day was very busy, checking work hand-in timetables for students, giving out information sheets and receiving work from student, logging results and manning the help desk for the students on the Business course.
The most important thing was the correct logging of student results on the database - this was effecting the rest of their lives, and – more... the results had to be accurately added to the database, so the correct score at the end of their degree could be given.
The job was shared with two other ladies, who were as dedicated to helping the students as I was, and also very easy to get on with. We helped each other balance our workloads and had a laugh too!
The hardest part of the job was getting to know all the students - most were Chinese, and their names were difficult to pronounce and spell. The workload was high, and had to be very accurate.
I enjoyed the atmosphere of learning, the challenge of the job, and talking to all the different people! – less

Easy summer part-time job
Data Entry Assistant (Former Employee), North York, ONFebruary 19, 2013
Pros: good pay, good hours, flexible, friendly staff
Cons: pressure to produce on point results
I mainly came in when I wanted, and inputed data for a study on effects of collisions in hockey. The tasks itself were not very difficult, but the stress on accuracy was very important and the results would be based on this. I learned how to use microsoft programs more effectively and to value being accurate in the data I inputed. Working with my co-workers – more... was mainly independent work as well, except for any questions or concerns we may have had. The hardest part of the job would be just the stress of making sure there were no mistakes in the data, as if there were it could jeopardize the whole project. The most enjoyable part of the job was that the hours were really flexible and I could make my own schedule. The pay was pretty decent as well for being a student at my age. – less
