I have learnt to be careful of any details and never give up making the work perfect. The hardest part of the job is you never know if the topic you chose is correct or not. After several months' experiments, you may find out the topic is wrong and you have to start over from the very beginning. However, the challenge also cultured me to be a hard-working person.

The pay is great and the routine as a TA is very flexible. You have a date to deliver the activities, so you can do at your own pace. The load and responsibilities depend on the professor.

Profs were easy going and laid back. I was required to answer students' questions during lab sessions and helped demonstrate concepts and techniques. Enjoyed partaking in field trips.

A typical day of work consisted of setting up experiments for the lab. I developed good language skills towards instructing first-year students basic courses in Biology. Management is terrible in this place, the science building is collapsing and seems to be a very bureaucratic place to make an impact to Newfoundlanders. Co-workers are good, in my area all of us young and enthusiastic. The hardest part of the job is not getting paid enough, compared to other major Universities in Canada MUN, pay grades are low. The must enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility.
Pros
Good environment to work
Cons
Bureaucracy
