Really enjoyed working at a small town university. Strong connections with a variety of athletes. Despite working on a 4 month contract, I would highly recommend this job to a newly certified athletic therapist. Worked with Football, Hockey, Basketball, and Volleyball.

My two bosses - my immediate and my boss's boss - differed in opinion as to what they wanted me to do. It was frustrating and I always felt betwixt and between. Much of my work felt futile because it was often never used - research done but never what "someone wanted". Knowledge was hoarded, too, which is a challenge when one is working in a knowledge-based department. I always felt that I was "below the pay grade" when it came to attending meetings of being asked for input. Apparently, I knew nothing and there was no interest in trying new nthings.

Management only caters to gifted students. Students with learning disabilities get swept under the mat. They do not protect their students. Do not care when their students fet assaulted Only their image.

Mount Allison University has been ranked the number one undergratuate University in Canada for many years by the MacLean's Magazine. It is renowned for excellency in teaching, research and providing research opportunities and internships for its students. Our work time is spent between teaching, course preparation, providing guidance to students and administrative tasks. Work life balance tends to tip toward work more than life. The most rewarding part of it is seeing students acquire skills and using them ever more securely.

Mount Allison University is a good place to work. It could be better, there are some major areas in their management structure, their physical plant (buildings, access, technical areas), and their culture that need work, but overall a good employer. My job is pretty secure, I have a normal 8:30-4:30 M-F routine, it is a school after all. There are few evenings and weekends that I need to work but I'm given a great deal of notice as to when or if that is required of me. This is my first public-sector, big-company type job, all my other jobs were with smaller businesses (75 or fewer employees), so adjusting to the bureaucracy and the positioning and everything that comes with, definitely a steep learning curve for me and the least enjoyable part. The best part has to be the student-focused mindset of the people who work here. At the end of the day we are trying to help and teach young people, and we all work very hard toward that common goal.

Temporary work for students is easy to find! I was able to have several jobs while attending Mount Allison University, all of which were readily advertised.

I mostly tutored for the MTA football team, so my exposure was limited, but I had a great time doing it. I studied commerce and economics and tutored on related subjects. I absolutely recommend this school.

It's very left here which is really nice. Liberal arts focus means most of the students have the critical thinking kit, but that's not always the case. People are pretty into art and stuff.

This job was an amazing opportunity to but theory into action and use what I learned during class time and how it applies to the real world. This job also provided hands on learning experience and allowed me to make suggestions, many of which were used at later times either in the online platforms or in the newsletters.

**These jobs are volunteer based. No salary or compensation. Though, this job allows me to be more involved in the community and offers opportunities to speak at events, lectures, and add to my overall hands-on work experience.

This is a good student job with minimal hours. It requires attending many of the events on campus, and is a good opportunity to get more involved in university life. There are inside opportunities for photography contests. It's great to be able to work as a team with other students who are interested in photography.
Pros
interesting events
Cons
minimal pay

-a typical day at work, you would start lab with the participating students, while they worked through the material given for that day you answered any questions that they may have. -What I learned most is to be prepared for any question that means throughly knowing the material before entering the lab. - management was great, there was a head lab instructor whom gave you a hand if you were stuck on something. -co-workers were other students or the professor -
Pros
it was a learning opportunitiy
Cons
it was impossible to know everything
