it's okay but

it could be much better. Depends on your Faculty / Department. I experienced a lot of harassment and unfair treatment. Some colleagues felt the same. Wouldn't work there again.

Fun workplace

Nothing to complain about. I worked at Degrees diner. The management is fantastic. Though busy at times, work is fun due to supportive management. Overall a great learning experience working there as a student. You also get tips which makes it even better and the food during your shift is free for you, which is again good money.

Supportive environment

The environment is supportive and have good timeline. There are little opportunities to socialize and develop further. Online training is provided. Can get support if needed. Salary is paid on time. Overall, the work place is comfortable but not secure for long term development.


Relaxed and support environment


Less development opportunities

Not bad, I have no problem with the management. They are all nice people. Workers were nice too, but you have to understand and acknowledge the fact there are bad days to all of us.

Working at UofM has its ups and downs

I worked as a evening shift caretaker and enjoyed most of the workThe areas that need improvement are fixing the absolutely awful communication and the system the management team put together has major flaws but they take the easy way out and blame that issue on us caretakers Supervisor seemed nice but didn’t care about obvious workplace bullying that went on, and I don’t think he was really qualified to be a supervisor It was somehow heavily disputed whether I worked full time or part time despite working 40 hours per week They were too cheap to spend $6 on a vacuum attachment that was needed They don’t even provide uniforms and that causes chemicals to get all over your skin and cause major irritation Overall thoughts are that you can do much better elsewhere or look at a different job within the UofM


Good opportunity for internal growth


Dysfunctional department that cheaps out on necessary supplies

Fun but tough.

Fun work place where you can share lots of creative ideas, but they do not help students with the work life balance as they say they do.The interview process also is a favorites game.

Productive and fun workplace

I highly recommend the International Orientation Counselor (Volunteer) position at the University of Manitoba. As a counselor, I worked with a diverse group of international students and helped them transition to their new academic and social environment. The university provided excellent training and resources, and I felt confident in my role providing accurate and helpful information. I found this position rewarding and enjoyed developing my leadership and communication skills in a supportive environment.

Supportive Instructors and administrators

As an international Student, I get all the support I need from my residency status to filing taxes, to employment, and to how I would reach my educational goals. The university is not perfect but it certainly enhanced my knowledge about my career here in Canada.

Productive and fun to work

An excellent place to work as a foreign academic. Great opportunity for research collaborations with highly qualified professors. You need to have the ability to work independently with little supervision

Work environment

A fantastic work environment with lots of opportunities to grow and prosper. Pay was low and days were long with so many on-the-go tasks and deadlines.

Overall good place to work

Hours are flexible, management is very understanding when personal things pop up that are out of your control. Vacation and benefits are good if you get a full-time position. Overall I feel satisfied with my job. My work-life balance is respected.The pay could be better, in comparison with other workplaces in this field it is slightly behind. Due to this discrepancy I sometimes feel like we are not able to attract people that are qualified when hiring new staff.Would be nice if staff parking was free, or cheaper than it currently is.


Benefits, work-life balance


parking fees, slightly lower pay than other related jobs in the city

No support, too much top down control

Stressful with little concern for employees. Poor collaboration and upper management pushed their own agenda. Lots of turn over in the last few years. Many unhappy people.

It is a good place and there are nice people.

I am a PhD student here, and I like the culture here, and they care about the need from the student very much. And they will try their best to provide us a more happy and friendly surrounding for us.

Good place to work

This is the best place to work in my opinion. People are friendly and willing to help each other. Management is also really good. For myself, the most enjoyable part of the job is feeding calves because I can see their growing process and they look cute.
