At the University of Windsor I had the opportunity to work with many wonderful professors and students who helped create a fun and productive work environment. Throughout my career opportunities I was able to immerse myself into many fields on campus and learn various skills. I was able to work as a teaching assistant in the psychology department, partake in research opportunities that promote wellness and cancer patient quality and work as a President for a student-led tutoring organization. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to meet new people and develop creative ideas to innovate the fields. I am grateful for being able to work alongside professors in order to better my abilities and increase my opportunities for the workforce.
Post graduate work that involved long hours, at a persons' discretion. Workplace culture was great as everyone was working to similar goals. The overall work and students/staff may my time there enjoyable.
University of Windsor – Windsor Ontario • Responsible for survey design, data entry, missing data processing and information evaluating. • Manipulated and investigated data into reportable information with statistical and Economic technique. Regression analysis by SPSS and SAS.
Working as a TA, I attended lectures, marked assignments, proctored exams, and performed any other duties required of me by the professor. I met and learned about all kinds of people and earned valuable experience.
Working at the university as a tutor or teaching assistant is a great way to get involved in the Computer Science department. The pay is great, you reiterate key concepts to yourself when you teach, and make new friends
Our work schedules were created around our class schedules and my manager was very considerate if there were any last minute issues that came up (i.e., a sickness or if a class ran late). Other employees were very friendly and when work was not busy they would allow you to complete any course work or readings as long as it did not interfere with work

I worked at the University in the music department during my undergrad. A typical shift would involve the setting up, taking down, and packing away of equipment and instruments. My supervisor was very helpful when it came to training so we knew what was expected of us. My co workers were easy to get along with and the atmosphere was great because I was able to listen to music during my shift!
The employer worked well with staff to help accommodate people and their lives. ie: shift replacements and requests for time off were often accommodated when given enough notice. The wage was decent for the local economy. Part-timers had an optional premium to pay for benefits. benefits should have been compulsory for better rates. The job security was good, but little room for advance. As a part-timer I had to find loopholes to get full time hours without full-time benefits. Management was good, sometimes a little forgetful and anxious or high strung for certain events, but we always managed to pull it together to get things done. Employees act entitled and like the employer owes them something. I see a divide between the full-timers and part-timers. I don't view the job security to stay as strong in the coming decade or so.

The University of Windsor is a judgement-free place where education is foremost and like-minded people can easily connect. Students and employees alike find common ground and share ideas in the many welcoming settings the university has to offer.
I learnt time management at work by meeting deadlines. The supervisor was very supportive. I was given flexible hours to work after my classes in University of Windsor. The entire team was hardworking.
