Overall very much worth it. A great job for my final year at University. The DSC is a valuable addition to UVic that I hope to see flourish and continue for decades. I would recommend anyone with a drive to learn and a passion for technology to apply. Or at the very least attend the last few of my workshops on Arduino.
I conducted research under the supervision of two professors. The work time is flexible and work culture is conductive. I was trusted that I could conduct independent research work, and I met up with supervisors weekly for updates.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Overall a good experience but the pay is not great for the work required and no benefits. I liked the experience but its not for everyone. The students are great and its very hands off re management.
If short term, the place is great. For long term, all I have heard is that the system is unfair. As short-term, if you dont have another job, it is really not a good option, no benefits, no health insurance. It is a temporary type of place
I worked as a volunteer at the English Language project and had a good time until they stopped paying for parking and finding a parking spot became very difficult. Also the teacher in charge demanded that I work three hours straight after I had been volunteering for over six months. I am still on their list but have not returned since November 2019.
The computing department is wonderful place to work. Very relaxed with a full troubleshooting database. They pay was not enough to live in Victoria, but as a part-time job with Student Loans it was manageable. Everyone is very nice and scheduling is flexible. Often, if there was no one to help we were allowed to study for our classes.
It is a nice place to learn new things and be responsible. Good people and flexible working hours.
There were some wonderful aspects of working for this employer. The vacation days off, the friendly co-workers and all the green spaces on campus. On the flip side, it was also a disappointment working for this employer. Management did not support employee career development. The wage increases never kept up with the cost of living under the Cupe collective agreement. That was not just a cupe issue it was a university administrative issue that they created.
