Worked/studied as a grad student in science for 2.5 years at uOttawa. Work was engaging and stimulating, but days were long and work is always taken home with you. Pay is bad by employment standards, but breaking even while earning a degree is an absolute win. Experiences depend solely on department/supervisor.
Pros
High-paced and engaging work.
Cons
Very little free time.

Not an ideal job, but as a student, a Research Assistant positions is pretty much all you can get. You get flexible hours, and if you have an understanding supervisor, you can easily balance your work and life.

Note taking was collaborative and flexible. I was able to take my own notes and work collaboratively with another student notetaker and the student. It's an excellent job for a first year student in the work student program.
Cons
there was no standardized note taking module/program. We ended up making our own.

I loved working with the professors from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Ottawa. It was an opportunity that both dependdd on my skills and knowledge while giving me ample opportunity to learn and it allowed for my own input and depended on my own initiative.

Allows you to get leadership experience if you were planning on working as a camp group leader for the program. It also allows you to experience the uottawa facilities and teach younger kids about either science or engineering.
