IT was good
Desk Clerk and IT Support (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON10 April 2019
Performance reviews are key to offering helpful feedback to a manager or employee. But not knowing what to say or write can make the process downright painful, especially on a deadline. When feedback is such a key part of boosting employee engagement, it's important to get it right.

A great school for undergraduate involvement
Internal Economist (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON15 February 2019
Lots of oppurtunity for undergraduate students to get involved in research, clubs, organizations and volunteer work due to the low student to faculty ratio.

Sub-Par
Biomechanical Applications Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON11 February 2019
it was a very unprofessional work environment, with much arguing and chaos. Leadership was abysmal, and resources available to students are pathetic. Would never recommend students to attend or work here.

Student Placement
Student Disability Services, Note Taker (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON2 February 2019
I finished my 4th year of university with this placement.

A typical review of a day was office meeting and various projects that the staff would have students work on either in a team or independently.

I learned by working with both student and management colleagues how to search for resources within the community,

Workplace culture was very diverse and we were open to seeing how other lived and if they had language barriers, etc.

Hardest part of the job was keeping up with assignments and reading.

Most enjoyable part of the job was when you were able to help someone assistance within the community due to not being able to get outside independently.
Pros
Skills learned to help with future employment
Cons
Client who blame for miscommunication

Univeristy of Windsor
Orientation Sponsorship Assistant (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON20 December 2018
Typical days are generally scheduled around that 8am-5pm time range, and depending on the position those hours could be filled quite tightly with tasks, or things could be slow. This all depends on the job that you possess as well as the motivation you (as the employee) have to find things to fill time as well.

I learned a lot about university protocols, procedures. and basic administrative skills.

Management can be something that also differs depending on your job title and department. I have had some bosses that are very involved in their employees steps every part of the way and then I have had other bosses that are more delegation based.

The workplace culture within the university is very good. Many of the people I worked with were really great people; generally quite a positive place to work.

The most challenging part of the work would have been the duration of contracts.

The most enjoyable thing is the workplace culture.
Pros
Great Hours (Long, and Regular)
Cons
Difficult to Progress

A great place to work as a student.
Event Staff (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON8 December 2018
Working for the school means that they understand your need for balance between work and school, which is ultimately the most important part about having a job in university. It was never a problem to schedule around classes, exams, or even take days off in order to study more.

Good place to work but very competitive. Only few jobs available for lots of people applying and many have graduate and post-graduate degrees. Good once you get in.
