utm residence is a very tight knit community and you given helpful feedbacks that you can use to improve. As a residence don you have your coordinator and coordinator assistant to oversee your work but often times you are given the freedom run your community gatherings as you'd like.

Supportive Co-workers with laissez faire leadership
Communications Administrator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 January 2019
Job security was precarious with minimal supervision and support from department heads. There was minimal communication between the associates and the head of the department. Which caused unrealistic time and work expectations for administrative staff.

Avoid drama and go with the flow
University of Toronto Cosplay Club President (Former Employee) –  27 King's College Cir, Toronto, ON M5S15 January 2019
The hardest part of this job when there was drama, and trying to help each person affected caused lots of stress on the exec team.
The most enjoyable was being able to teach and reach out to people who like to cosplay and show them some skills that would be useful.
There is no pay.

Fantastic Place to Work
Information and Instructional Technology Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON17 December 2018
All employees get lots of support, and the work environment is not as stressful given this is a public institution. The perks of the job are plenty including free food on occasion and activities one can be involved in. The university features a state of the art gym, one of the most renown libraries, and is surrounded by gorgeous forestry to trek through.
