Typically would work on a few rooms with a group of about 3 people throughout the day. Some days had more some less. Generally, the workload wasn't too crazy and there were many days where we were all able to leave early as there was just no work to be had.

I learnt a lot of conflict resolution, how to take care of students, to be welcoming, and to adjust my study timetable to always be prepared for student requests and occurrences. I would recommend.

During school years, I was hired as a student assistant in Recruitment and International Relations at UPEI. I usually helped international students about different types of VISAs, permits, health cards, or other benefits to aid a better and more comfortable stay in Canada, and also answered phone calls from all over the world about their applications.

Alright place to work, wage stays pretty much the same over years. Have to work evenings to start and takes close to 10 years to get onto days. Work is fairly easy though and fellow coworkers are great.

I had one class a week to assist students in their studies, this opportunity provided extra income and experience grading papers and managing a group, as well as experience that would help with my career.

I worked as a language lab assistant and as a tutor. Because of the nature of these jobs, I was often able to build my own schedule around other employment and school work.

Pros
Laid back
Cons
not enough hours

Well organized, friendly staff, and exellent managment.
The hard part of the job is that standing for a long time

The most enjoyable part of the job is working in the lab for the whole time.

The most bored work is correct the students reports and exms.

I worked as a lab TA during my undergrad degree at UPEI. It provided me with great experience and skills that I can use in the future, either in a science based career or as a teacher. However, since it was a student position there was not much opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Work Life Balance
Cons
Limited Hours
