University of Saskatchewan was my vert first workplace in Canada. I could learn a lot of new technologies which greatly increased my abilities and knowledge about the research I was involved in. It was a nice place to work with such talented and passionated people. I highly recommend it!

The pay is good, management is good. Hours are only during the day and evening. The only issue is that if you have a class during the day then it can be hard to work there.

Overall, good job. Not many opportunities for advancement or good benefits, and sometimes working with others in the Department was challenging. Would recommend however.

Has the potential to be good, but it's located in Saskatchewan. A lot of money spent unnecessarily, with no real results given. Old fossils running programs that don't contribute, but hang on because of tenure.

A large opportunity to practice a wide variety of different dental treatments. The patient to student ratio is also very generous to allow for sufficient hands-on application of multiple procedures.

An overall good place to work. Has a good workplace culture, socializing is encouraged. Hours can be quite flexible. Communication between departments can be a bit strained.

There are good opportunities for current students to gain research experience working with their professors and the pay is pretty good, too. The work can be physically demanding at times, but it depends on the area of research you work in.

The University of Saskatchewan has lots of energy and things to do. The campus is beautiful. Working at the university can be fun but it mostly depends on your immediate co-workers and your boss as it is a big university with a lot of teams and departments.
