Administrator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 October 2018
Stable, consistent and good employer. Leadership could use some refreshing. Lots of people come here to plug in their years towards retirement. If sitting at a cubicle is for you, this is the place to be.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 September 2018
Eight hours a day, five days a week. The culture is great. As it is a result base environment, nobody questions you about the time you spend in the office. The only thing you need to be aware of is to meet the deadlines.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 September 2018
During my PhD studies, I had an opportunity to teach Russian and French languages to the University of Alberta undergraduate and graduate students. I also conducted some guest lectures on Russian film. I understood that teaching is my vocation, as I enjoyed every single class I taught. In 2016, I was awarded as the best graduate student teacher, and since then my dream is to continue teaching at post-secondary level, to collaborate with university colleagues, and develop competitive research projects. In addition to my teaching and research activities, I had other responsibilities such as active participation in associations, clubs, and committees, writing proposals for grant applications, and interacting with external partners on multi-disciplinary projects.

Help Desk Administrator (Current Employee) – Camrose, AB – 16 August 2018
After working in the private industry for over 30 years, working here was a real culture shock. There are some great people here but it is tough to break in relationally as most have been here for over 20 years! The manager is excellent though and is very good to work for.
