Pretentious, uppity organization
Casual Employee (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON3 July 2018
Don’t work here. You will regret it. Staff are rude and not welcoming to anyone new. They don’t like change nor do they like to help anyone. Worked for a few doctors and all they did was complain about everything I did no matter if it was right or wrong. Extremely high and unrealistic expectations. They basically set you up for failure. I wouldn’t work here again if my life depended on it. Politics are awful like the other above post mentioned.
Pros
1 hour lunch
Cons
Rude, inconsiderate co-workers and staff

Can work your own hours so long as assignments are completed by specified deadlines. Learned great time management skills, teamwork, and elements of academia that allowed me to further my understanding of the field of education.

Service provider (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON8 June 2018
The institution is more interested in filling seats then the quality of education. Post-secondary at Queen's has become a business first (marketing experts are in high demand).

Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON22 May 2018
The community and academics of Queen's University together make it one of the finest institutions in the country. It's a great balance of academic excellence and a tight knit community. I would recommend it to anyone considering to study there.

Horrible Employer!
Queen's Employee (Current Employee) –  Kingston, ON8 March 2018
Queen's has a positive face value in the community as being a "Great Employer"

The truth is, they are like a drunken step parent that we are not allowed to talk about out of fear of the repercussions we will face.

Queen's is poisoned with feminist doctrine and sexism.
With 85% of the workforce being female and HALF of the upper hierarchy being female. Being a female is the first checkbox asked when applying for any job.

The HR department is feminist run.
The Equity board is feminist run.

The university is so riddled with sexist feminist propiganda and false victimhood it makes working there very uncomfortable.

There is an overabundance of underqualified people in jobs making more than they should, and the people who are working hard are under paid and under appriciated.

The politics are toxic.
Pros
They have good benefits.
Cons
Everything else!
