Consultant and Branding (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 2 March 2017
The University of Toronto is a good and inclusive workspace that I would encourage anyone to apply to. I've learned a great deal about management from seasoned staff and administration, and was also key in teaching me how to balance different portfolios and staff.
Part of my job at U of T was to manage franchises, this involved hiring and firing of staff, budgeting, projections, maintaining assets and protocol with Franchisors. The most difficult aspect of this job could probably be surmised by the sheer amounting moving parts that had to be overseen. But it was worth it, and I learned a great deal from the my supervisors and fellow staff.

AccessAbility Services UTSC is a workplace to avoid but other U of T areas are better
Assistant and Coordinator (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 25 June 2016
Working at AccessAbility was about constantly walking on eggshells because you never knew when something would trigger the directors' insecurities. It was difficult to ask for support because directors would rudely interrupt employees as they are speaking and say NO or reply with some sort of defensive answer. Although they require good experience and qualifications when hiring, they are not actually interested in having you use that expertise because they themselves get easily defensive at that. AccessAbility Services has a leadership with poor communication abilities and high insecurities. Best to pick another department.
Friendly students, U of T has good reputation
poor leadership, poor communication, insecurities in leadership
Soccer Convener (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 18 May 2016
An enjoyable work experience for students at the University. More enjoyable for those that are student-athletes because they get to work in an environment that they are familiar with. Great staff as well.
Graduate Studies Assistant (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 5 February 2016
A typical day of work as a graduate assistant would be filing papers, doing spreadsheets and doing certain tasks to help out the assistant. I have learned how to improve my time management skills. The most enjoyable part of the job would be researching about a specific assignment that the assistant has assigned me to do.
Great team work environment, highly communicative and efficient.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 28 January 2016
Excellent work environment overall. Highly organized course structures, well managed and efficient. Communication between colleagues is efficient enough to keep work schedule at par. Best part of the job is the delivery of the subject matter in a timely manner. At times when a planned task doesn't meet deadline, it takes a bit of time to get back on track. The most enjoyable part of the course is the actual teaching of subject matter with full enthusiasm and passion and more so when the students whole heartedly appreciate it thanks us.
