It was a regular workday in a school environment. Every day is practically the same as I come into the lab, make plans for the day's activity and proceed to execute my tasks.

I had a challenging 15 years with the university...I see this as a positive because it challenged me to focus on my work frequently taking my work home with me. This has more to do with my personality than the job itself. I had many opportunities to organize and evaluate my work and reflect on my ability to work with others.

It is job that required working alone and working with other at the same time. I need to finish the task before the meeting with supervisor that was held every 2 days. It is a good learning experience because it is related to engineering. From it, I've learned how to cooperate with people from different departments in order to get the work done according to their need.

my research position was just for the school co-op program for 4 months but through the 4 months time I really learned number of things that were not told in the classroom and helped me in my career even today.

Tuition is one of the highest in the country, and tutoring help is non-existent for many subjects. Unfortunate, but overall the experience was nice. If the cost to attend was not so high, I could have completed my degree!

Good benefits like gym use and maternity leave benefits but because they have pay bands the pay is terrible. Good work life balance. Don’t have to worry about job security but not much room for advancement.

I worked as a procurement assistant during Summer term. I learned a lot on their procurement department, their internal IT systems and documentation. I was assigned various duties including maintaining purchase orders and handling account ledgers. Great team and a lot of positive encouragement for learning and improvement.

Most enjoyable parts fo the job: For student workers,there's lots of oportunities to gain experience in your field of study. I learned a lot and got really involved with multiple communities on campus.

The hardest parts of the job: I worked mainly indoors to do research and to write papers, which I thought got repetitive pretty often.


The culture: People tend to be relaxed and autonomous. It is a very focused environment.
Pros
Experience toward your career goals.
Cons
Not for extroverted people.

Great place to go to school overall. Some of the policies are ridiculous however and as a student your service to the university is not always respected. For the most part the professors are good however, some need to be seriously reviewed.
Pros
Beautiful Campus
Cons
Bad policies

Working at the University of New Brunswick, especially as a student is a great way to meet with other people on campus other than those in your faculty and build a level of credibility outside the academic life of the university
