Decent summer job, not enough hours
Summer Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 June 2017
This was a work-study position. It's great for students who want meaningful work on campus but does not provide nearly enough hours. You can work maximum 12 hours per week but there's a cap on how many hours you can work in total (under 100). Pay is minimum wage + 4% in lieu of vacation.

great working environmeny
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 January 2017
Pros
Professors are nice and willing to help at anytime. I get practiced in explaining complicated ideas or concepts in an understandable way. The feeling worth more than the salary earned. UofT counts the working hour and pay the corresponding salaries in a very generous way.
Cons
It takes a lot of individual time to get ready for the tutorial. Students ask about easy questions repeatedly and teaching assistants have to explain again and again.

Fun to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 January 2017
I enjoyed working there. A typical day at work would to call alumni to raise funds towards the campaigns the University would conduct seasonally. Campaigns could be towards infrastructure and services the University offers towards its current students. I learned how to talk on the phone on a professional manner and this skill has served me useful.
