Overall it’s a very good place to work. The only negative part is some members of management don’t seem to manage. The main man in charge that started the program however is phenomenal and the attendants themselves are fairly self sufficient
Pros
- PSW minimum wage

Working at Carleton University as a Contract Instructor has been an enjoyable and valuable process that taught me a lot about how to make the transition from graduate student to academic professional.

Contract Instructors are seen as dispensable, have no job security and no pensions. Full-time faculty avoid you and pretend you are invisible. You are not part of a larger team guiding the department.

I thoroughly enjoyed working for Carleton University, however live in positions are tough and come with a variety of their own challenges. It's hard to summarize the jobs as every floor and every student is so different and dynamic.

I had the best time covering someone on their special leave! The best work environment in Ottawa with a great salary and great benefits. Would've never left had it not been for personal reasons.

Worked at Carleton for 2 years while going to school full time. They were very accommodating when it came to scheduling to ensure there were no conflicts with school. It was also really easy to switch shifts with coworkers when necessary. Able to go home over Christmas break and reading week. The work is fun and it taught me a lot, and I made lots of new friends.
Pros
accommodating schedule
Cons
overnight shifts

As a Masters student they were helpful in getting me a TA position. TA'd 3 different courses over 3 term period. One was a computer course where I helped students in a lab. Another was an engineering course where I helped mark assignments. Helped monitor exams.

It is good working at Carleton. It is easy, casual and not too stressful. I would definitely recommend this job for undergraduate students. The management there are great and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job is working the rush periods when school is starting and ending each term. Everyone at the job is fun and there is zero-tolerance for bullying or hate. A typical day would include cleaning and maintaining the area and making sure everything is in place. The employees choose their hours and the management does a great job in ensuring everyone gets equal shifts according to their schedules and availability.

Good work dynamic and very self driven but that varies with each supervisor. Mine believes in each student finding their own path and working on a project that really inspires them so most of my time is self managed.
