It's what you would expect
Depending on your position this can be an awesome job to get you through the year. Not the best for people needing more money to support themselves, but its a good place to work, flexible, and easy going people.

Two Different Depts
I worked at the School of Education full time for 3 years when it was being rationalalized by the govand it was a great place to work--relaxed dress code and office environment. I then worked half time in this dept and half time in External Relations as my job in Education was being phased out. Two days a week for each dept. Then I worked full time for Ext Rel for 8 years.
Pros
1.5 hours for lunch paid, great health benefits
Cons
Boring repetitive work in Ext Relations.

Nice Professor
The professors give the instruction clearly and help you quite friendly if there is a problem. It is a good experience to help correct the exams for C programming students.

Great place to work with
Working with students and researching at Dalhousie is probably one of the best things I've done. The university is very accommodating and the facilities are kept nice.

Closed off. dark mood.
The room you work in for the phonanthon (at least when I worked there) took place in a dark, closed-off room that brought the whole mood down. The hours weren't that great. 5 pm - 10:45pm weekdays 1pm - 6pm weekends. And the pay wasn't very good. The people and supervisors were super awesome but the environment, hours, and pay left something to be desired.

Learned and Enjoyed the work environment.
I enjoyed working at Dalhousie, I was manager of the Bistro there. And Had the ability to be creative for the students there and have fun. It gave me the opportunity to manage a small facility and learn new skills.

Good opportunity
It's a very good University. It provides very good learning support in various engineering programs, especially in civil engineering. The campus of civil engineering has been renovated.

Fun place
Experience during my tenure will be cherished. I worked as a Cashier at the bookstore for 2 weeks. Management was kind and patient with all employees and made sure the representatives understood their work protocols right.

Facilities Management is horribly run!
I was a term for a year in Facilities Management. I never took a day off, worked hard and tried to take pride in my work. There was only 1 supervisor who ever gave me a chance. I was used to cover for vacations, chewed up then spat out. I'm sure it would have been great if I could have gotten past the term stage, but I feel my term wasn't extended due to me going to the union over a previous issue. If you are starting out you have no rights! They cut me down from 40 hrs a week to just 16 on weekends. One of the supervisors even lied, saying I turned down work when she never offered me anything to begin with! I would have loved to stay there and be part of the team. The workers all seem so great but management and HR are hard to deal with.
Pros
Good pay, pension and benefits
Cons
Management and HR sucks and they lie with no repercussions

Student - TA
As a Teacher assistant and Tutor for French at Dalhousie University I can safely say that it is a very professional and serious faculty. I loved working with the department, specifically the French department in the Faculty of Arts. They provide lots of support for their students!
