Managing a greenhouse and assisting graduate students.

Mostly spent in a greenhouse working for a graduate student to assist with a project. Also worked outdoors for another graduate student using mine tailings. The hardest part of the job was being in a greenhouse for a long time and putting up with hot temperatures. Learned a lot about real life academic projects.

Pros

Experience in academic projects.

Cons

Term work.

It's a rabbit hole for post-doctoral fellows and graduate students

Working at University of Manitoba as a post-doctoral fellow is like entering a sand dune. You just get sucked in without any hope of getting a permanent full-time position anywhere. The University has no program in place that can facilitate intake of trained personnel leading to brain drain.

Pros

Staff benefits are one of the best in industry. Good work-life balance

Excellent learning opportunity

While working at the Student Counselling Centre, I developed basic counselling and assessment skills, documentation skills, problem solving, and goal setting skills. All of these skills have been transferable to my subsequent working opportunities. Working at the Student Counselling Centre exposed me to what it is like to work in a multi-disciplinary environment.

challenging work, continual learning

The typical day was any but. Never knew what could come in the door. Always faced with new things to learn/research. Politics can hinder any growth and change or improvement are slow. Great work life balance. Great benefits.

Pros

Self directed with no supervision

Cons

No growth

It's a student running club. People and members are really nice. It's a good volunteer experience for the student from the University of Manitoba. Highly recommend it.

Good team to join to build engineering skills.

U.M.A.T.T. is a great opportunity to build skills that are involved in the field of engineering. While on the team, I was able to learn the basics of Solid Works as well as gain experience in using the industrial band saw and drill press.

Great for Students

With flexible hours and the convenience of being located on campus, the Writing Tutor Program is a great job for University of Manitoba students. Get paid $15/hour but note that this is only a part time position. If you enjoy writing and find teaching rewarding, this is the job for you.

Very close family

Work load is very manageable, tasks are mundane and day to day. Lots of repetition and photocopying. Employees are all very friendly and helpful. Overall great morale.

It's a post secondary institution

It's a post secondary institution. There isn't a ton to say. They have good hours and it's a decent place to work. But it's hard to count on having a job at the end of the day and they really really really like sticking people on terms. I spent almost my entire time there on multiple terms.

I love working in UofM

I held different positions in UofM. As better opportunities come, you are more than welcome to change positions or secondments. Holiday, days off are AWESOME, no where else can give you 2 weeks off in Christmas and you GET PAID !! on top of your min 3 weeks vacation to start with ;) i know ! Benefits are wonderful, so far, better than public sector as my experience. love all the family/personal days off, especially for sick family or kids. and all other entitlement are all listed in their site. mat/pat leave is great with 45% top up from 55% EI for like 7 months. one thing is, seniority doesn't really matter to them, they don't necessary fav the internal.. external applicants are welcome in lots of units and departments. just be ready for a steady to busy environment, don't think you will get a job that is so free yet very best pay. reasonable pay with reasonable-to-high work load. which is already so hard to find good luck!

Basic

What I did was go through files and shred the ones no longer needed, this was only for 2 weeks. There isn't much more to it aside from that, it was enjoyable and wouldn't mind doing it again.

Great department, Bad University

The gist is that the University is poorly manage from the top and the administrative departments are bloated and slow. My immediate boss was wonderful but she ended up leaving for a better job elsewhere because the University has a terrible time retaining Pathologists

Acceptable Learning environment for Graduate Students

Supportive working environment with many opportunities to learn from many high-caliber researchers in a variety of fields. Slower working pace then most other big universities. Unfortunately the PhD program at the department of Physiology lacks teaching opportunities for young students and the PhD degree is only research based.

A very good research culture

This is a very nice place to work. I have been there as a graduate student and now working as a post doc. All the staff members are very supportive. The research culture is also very good.
