HR are bullies and so very toxic. I’ve never seen anything like this before. I’ve seen several long term staff get disciplined or fired for being injured on the job. As soon as your injured ( at work!!!) they will lie and cheat to get rid of you..... Do not work here. UBCO’s HR is toxic.
I was hired to take notes/read out loud/study with my fellow students who had learning disabilities such as brain injuries/seizure disorders and dyslexia. The management at UBCO was horrible, if they had just let me and my students work things out between us it would have been way easier. But they ended up confusing matters between the four of us. I did get access to some good resources from UBCO to help them out though, so it wasn't all bad.
UBC is a wonderful place to work when you first start your career in food service because the level of training and cooperation with your coworkers is good. Also, it is a great place to ask questions so when you are unsure of something all of your supervisors are ready to help you out. It is a an environment like many in the culinary field. It is busy, cooperative, friendly, supportive, and enjoyable. Most of the time if you go to work with the desire to serve others you will receive ten fold back in return. God bless UBC. Here's to the furture! Thanks for all you have given me. T.

The most enjoyable part of the job is to see students become pharmacy professionals who surpassed and replaced me in my job and felt in my heart his/her smile of happiness, accomplishment and perseverance.
Working for UBC has its many challenges and benefits. It is not the easiest to navigate at all times, and work can feel precarious at times, but it has incredible benefits that have allowed me to advance my mental and emotional health in ways I never imagined possible.
Great place to work. Multicultural environment hardest part is the laisezz-faire which might be stressful if there is need for supervision Enjoyable part is that there is an inclusive culture
The employers really want to work with you instead of against you. Great experience and opportunities are available, even for part-time. Working with students who are on the same path was very exciting as it pushes you to do better.
- working style is flexible - the management works in an old school manner. Difficult to approach the concerned people. - not properly cleaned and maintained offices - management should focus on encouraging people to bring new ideas and facilitate them with necessary technologies. - the environment is good if you get along with people around.
It's great to work for a place that makes sure everything you do has a great impact on education. It gives you a lot of creative freedom as well, and great work and life balance
It pays well and the benefits are one of the best. But there's poor management, and it's really stressful. You get what you put into it. It's a great opportunity to start out with, but it's tricky to grow.
Multiple locations you can work in
Long hours, same pay
Although i was glad to have a summer cleaning job for the summer 2019, there are some downlows during my time there. Let's spill the tea shall we?
The typical day at work was a lengthy one. I have learnt patience, efficiency and all housekeeping techniques. Management played favorites most of the time. Workplace culture was half toxic, competitive and gossipy. Lifting heavy funiture on my own was my least favorite cup of tea. Going to different locations from time to time helped me to cope with some drama there.
Typical day included researching various sustainable designs for the sustainability office and managing a small group of students. We did cost benefit analysis' and value engineering along with creating presentations and reports for the sustainability office.
