Fun workplace with free food
I work as a volunteer there. I learned about the safety policies of customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is communicating with people. The workplace is very comfortable. I enjoy working there. Somedays like during the night it use to be very busy but that's where I think the fun begins.

Great workplace experience. Not much training, however the job was quite straight forward.
I was offered the job due to my ability to interact and form connections with my classmates, as well as my passion for the course. In preparation for the job, I made sure that I was more than prepared for any occasion/obstacle that might appear. Most of my training was a quick run-through on what to expect so, but not much in the field. I, however, am a very quick learner and took to the job quickly.

I have not worked there but am studying so I know little about job experience. As am very new there so I can't even properly describe about that. But I personally feel it as good job location

This is a contract position
I teach one course in the Winter and Spring sessions and absolutely love it. Staff, management and students are amazing to deal with.

Preparation of a curriculum, quizzes, written assingments as well as mid-term and final exams.


PP Presentation is almost always a requirement.

Depends on who you TA for
Depending on who you are matched with (I say matched with because I've applied to TA with certain professors, and will get put up with a different professor I didn't apply to work with), the work can be good and challenging. If you are unlucky however, the person you work for could be unorganized to the point where you don't get work because they don't answer emails - you are paid on the hours you input.

Good
I enjoyed working at the uofw. It was a good experience because of the knowledge I gained with data entry and analysis. It was collaborative and a fun environment.

Great culture, low income.
Professional, well-managed and supportive place to work. Salary is not quite on-par with academic support positions in other Canadian universities but overall my experience with my supervising professors and department chair was excellent.

Safety and creative work environment
You can apply what you learn in class to your work. In addition, you can improve the results by using new knowledge by asking help from instructors or supervisors.

Great for Casual Work
Great for working as event staff. The staff were great to work with and the management did what they could to help out students who needed part time work while taking their degree.

Fulfilling lab experience with a relaxed but efficient workplace environment
This job taught me how to operate in a lab efficiently as well as communicate with other members to satisfy the demands of that day. The over-night shifts capturing bats was hard to get used to but ultimately taught me how to properly fill out data/process bats under non-ideal conditions such as working outside. The work environment was great - all the members were easy to get along with and shared the same mentality about how important our role is in the preservation of bats in Canada. A typical day included filling vials of ethanol or RNALater, fixing equipment, checking all PIT tag systems were functional, set up traps to catch bats and process them, and perform rigorous decontamination of equipment at the end of the night.

Great for getting experience
As with any contract position, there are limitations to working here. The obvious ones are lack of job security, potential for advancement, benefits, and salary.

On the plus side, you have a generally pretty good work culture, without really any micromanagement, and a supportive administration. I enjoyed my time here, but wouldn't want to do this as a career.
Pros
You get a lot of independence
Cons
Difficult to advance

Interesting environment
Work involves interaction with international students from many different countries. The dynamics of teaching is the most satisfying aspect of the work. The small size of classes allows for good opportunities to get to know the students on a more personal level. The central location of the University allows for minimal commute times and bus service to the area is quite good.

It was a good job
My job was pretty casual, and whenever I did work I was mostly just watching students do their exams and making sure they didn't cheat. Helping professors gather the exams and sometimes marking them.
