Great experience and nice people
Great experience and friendly people; however, the pay is not comparative to the estimated work estimation and effort. I recommend working for the experience though as it helps personal and professional growth.

Great Place with Great People
During my work with Ontario Tech University I experienced much joy and little stress. The salary wasn't amazing, but the environment was greatly appreciated.

Management is very supportive
I enjoy teaching at UOIT as the students are very studious and the management is very cooperative. The campus is very nice yet parking can be challenging at times.

Positive and Welcoming Environment
I worked a number of research contracts for a variety of past professors. Communication between all three professors and myself was clear, swift and efficient. I was exposed to a variety of research methods and had the opportunity to develop my skills within interview analysis, legal document analysis, as well as subject assessment and test analysis. Flexible working hours and locations was very appreciated and enjoyable. The most difficult part of the job was bringing all methods and information together to present a cohesive whole.

Working for a university...
It's what you'd expect. It's a safe job, great pay and benefits, but it's a huge organization and thus lacks innovation and creativity. I also worked 3 back to back contracts before leaving. I know I would have been kept on if budgets allowed but contracts are a trend at universities and once a contract is up sometimes the job is cut or the job is re-allocated to a completely different department.

Pay
Cons

Good job to have while at school
A typical day would consist of helping students find research for papers and showing them proper editing techniques for their writing. The staff made it easy to manage work and school. If any last minute issues arose and I was not able to attend work, management was very helpful and understanding. It was also very rewarding knowing that the help you gave students was beneficial for them.

Its very dependent on your boss
I worked under two professors both were amazing and pay was great, I've heard it is not the case for all TA and RA roles though.

Work is typically alright, Teaching Assistant is an easier role than Research

I love being a TA
UOIT is a fun school to work at and being a TA is a passion of mine.
I have this job to help pay for my Masters degree here and while the pay isn't amazing I find every course I have been a TA for has been fun and interesting. I'd love to keep working here if I could afford it.

Productive and a good environment for research
UOIT is a great place for performing research specifically in nuclear engineering where you get to work with academic experts and industrial professional. Particularly, I worked on reliability analysis of safety systems in nuclear power plant and the pursuit for small modular reactor technology and its application to Northern Canada.

Interesting way of learning
Was able to help students understand what was required to complete the course successfully. Relearned course material as a result of teaching it, because material had to be recreated for teaching purposes (i.e. Powerpoint).
