Really bad...they don't post many full-time career opportunities. If it's full-time then it'll be seasonal/sessional accordingly, and other than that they hire casual part timers and give them low pay rates w no security and or opportunity to grow.

It is all just a big party, which is why students have huge (1000+ to 30, 000 people attend) their unsanctioned/illegal parties, where things are very criminal and hugely unreported (WLU tries to squash the fact that they are a party school and people attend for the parties not for the academics).

It is very casual, and you'll find the people interviewing don't look very professional as they wear mainly street clothes/semi casual clothing.

How does HR treat candidates?
Asked 23 September 2019
If you don't already belong to Laurier in some capacity...you are truly disadvantage as they are super biased towards their own kind, and anyone who is female. I was shocked that they do not understand that there should be an equal and fair balance in the hiring process, and not one sided female only interview process where as a male, you feel discriminated against in the process. When you give feedback, they will be dishonest cause all they care about is moving on, they do not care to actually listen & understand the concerns of a candidate, and how it feels to be treated so poorly by the institution that is supposed to be the most diverse, and understanding to the needs of ALL in today's society, but of course they are stuck in the 1980s systemic hiring process.
Answered 23 September 2019
No, they look to students only; it is very difficult to 1st get an interview if you are an outsider, and 2ndly if you do, you still will not be hired as they only look at WLU people to fit their agendas.
Answered 28 September 2018
This is because much of the working population at Wilfrid Laurier are also studying at the university. Therefore when they graduate they leave. I have seen recently that professors that are tenured at the university are decreasing in numbers but that is a global trend at universities.

What job security do you offer?
Asked 28 September 2018
They are not engaged in retention programs for staff...unless you are part of the union. Never expect any security with WLU as they are not welcoming to 'career' opportunities as the jobs posted are all short-term/contract, and very casual part time jobs.
