Healthy Workplace Advisor (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 29 April 2018
This was a temporary term position in Human Resources and I loved this fast paced challenging job. I loved the work but wanted only part-time temporary and the contract ran out as the full-time incumbent returned from Mat. Leave
The comaraderie of the staff
There is no parking close to the Department I worked in
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 15 January 2018
A typical day at work is about communication with the head administrative assistant, update the emails income and outgoing. Advise the student facilitator of her schedule for the day. Finish other office duties given, if it be filing, putting mail in mailboxes, typing out documents of all kinds, helping students with questions on the nursing course. The hardest part of my job is keeping every student calm and focused. The information is ongoing and there is a lot of reading involved in a day. The emails can be repeatative but beneficial to answer each one on a timely manner. The most enjoyable part is being with my co workers and meeting all the staff in the U of R.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 14 January 2018
I enjoyed the challenges my job offered. I was supported by HR, Finance and Administration. I was even supported by the Union. I did have some disgruntled employees but I think staff respected my due process and due diligence when faced workplace incidents. I focused on fairness and consistency.
The hardest part was managing the Store's assets. I enjoyed the challenges but moving inventory took work. The University gave good support, I looked forward to work each day and I would work there again.

Great working environment and supportive team dynamics. Unfortunately limited career advancements due to available budget and difficulty receiving research grants. Otherwise, a very pleasant place to work and further develop career skills with great people.
Finance Specialist - Library Technical Services (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 25 August 2017
My typical day at work is coding invoices and entering into the acquisitions software. I have learned how a library system works and the processes in which it runs. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. The hardest part of the job is continuing to keep busy due to budget cuts. The most enjoyable part of the job is doing monthly reports and reconciling accounts.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 13 July 2017
The low fees within all around Canada it is a great place to work and study as the students are less dependent on external jobs to pay their fees. The professors are nice but the university needs to improve the quality of professors.
