Fun times

Great people and we’ll supported always. Worked in a few roles throughout the years. Laurier is such a family and your truly do make friends for life. I miss the feel and vibe of campus. Some of the best years of my life

Very stressful work please

I don't recommend anyone to work here. The manager doesn't know what's going on in the kitchen at all, he only listens to the denunciations of employees.Don’t spend your time!!!

Productive place with good infrastructure.

I worked there as a for a small period. The workplace was very friendly but I could feel the contractual nature of the job. It felt like I was expected to leave after my contract was done.


Good environment


not enough opportunity for advancement

Great place to do an internship

I had a great experience as Communications Assistant at Laurier International. I learned a lot about internal/external Communications and was given plenty of opportunities to expand my skillset in other areas like social media. The team was super welcoming and friendly and really worked to make sure myself and the other interns felt comfortable and supported.

Non productive work place.

Not productive in terms of workforce. Upper management not clear and unorganized. Not accountable for their own actions/direction - takes out rage and mistakes on staff

Barista - food services

I worked in food services at the Starbucks for 2 years and really enjoyed it. The job was fast-paced and fostered a friendly work environment. I also picked up catering shifts with food services at the university for extra cash and it was always a great time.


discounted food

Great place to work.

Great place to work. Team oriented environment. Supportive senior leadership. Is difficult to advance as an administrator due to structure of administrative support staff pay bands.


Wonderful staff, faculty and students. Great work environment.


Workload is sometimes unmanageable during peak volumes through academic year.

Highly recommended

It was an amazing experience to work there. Typically day at work was not a surprise. I had my schedule in advance 2 weeks. Work place culture is not very easy going. I love working there.


Good pay, free lunches

Working at WLU

Environment is good depending on which department you work in. There are good people all over campus who are willing to help new employees and become good friends.

opportunities available for contract faculty

I have found there to be ongoing requests for contract teaching in a variety of disciplines. Contract faculty have a union so there is support for re-occurring and first request contracts.

I like my job

Working at WLU for Aramark food services has been a wonderful experience. I love the fast pace and the multicultural atmosphere. Having children that are in university/college and high school, working with students has been the best experience to help me understand my own children. I'm content and very blessed
