During the code camp, I assisted the camp teachers introducing the two fundamental language of website, HTML and CSS. Near the end of the camp, every student was able to build their unique websites. I really enjoyed guiding the young coders to explore the beauty of the complex programming world.

Computer Science Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) - Vancouver, BC
Your experience will being a teaching assistant will depend completely on your professor and the course. A lot is expected from TAs without much training and you should be able to manage your time well if you're also taking a full course load. The pay is okay but not the best for students who are also studying full-time

power engineer (Current Employee) - Kelowna, BC
UBC BCGEU position is a dead end job with a great benefit package. The wages are very low however you know that coming in and may be able to deal with that aspect. The charge engineer and management team in the facilities department create a toxic work environment. There is an old boys club mentality and change is desperately needed, the existing work environment its not a healthy or positive workplace.
Pros
Benifit package
Cons
As mentioned

Residence Advisor (Former Employee) - Kelowna, BC
Working as an RA, you have no private life. You’re never fully away from your job. It’s very stressful to not be able to separate your work life and personal life. Also, you soooo don’t get paid enough for the amount of work you’re doing. But! The people that you work with legitimately care about you. And they’re there for you. Having such a supportive community is amazing
Pros
Management is great, employees are great
Cons
Never off the clock, not paid enough
