The money and benefits are excellent, but the work environment is challenging. This is not a place that I would recommend staying forever. The demands on employees can be great at times and can take a toll on a person's mental health

The staff at Laurentian University are great, but if you happen to find yourself laid-off, do not expect them to provide you with any information or support.

My bosses always had my back. You are responsible for certain duties and making sure people don't break the rules. The most important part of the job experience is that you know that you are not alone. Co workers and managers will always help you out

This was an ideal job for a student, with flexible hours and independence. I was given several subject areas to research, but was free to work on my own terms (up to a certain number of hours per week). This job takes a lot of self-motivation and creativity.
Pros
Flexible schedule, work from home
Cons
Requires self-discipline, independent thought

I started as a clerk and moved into taking over a vacation leave.
Challenging at times due to my limited knowledge of duties as well as limited french language capacity. Departmental work culture was not the greatest at the time and there was limited support at times.

A typical day is to do a 4 hour lab with undergraduate students in a variety of courses. I learned how to teach to a larger audience as well as one on one.

Great overall experience. As I was a student, it would have been nice to receive campus discounts at the book store or at the cafeteria. I worked in the student affairs department.
