Great start, only 3 weeks in and work is great at the children’s.
Hours are great, staff is very friendly and make learning fun. Patient interactions are very Pleasant and friendly.
ProsShorter hours 8:30-4:30
ConsLunch not paid
friendly place to work
It was a good university to study at. I did my PhD study over there at McDonal Campus. The problem is that it is outside of the city and took half an hour up to one hour of communication if you would like to live in downtown Montreal. Apart from that, the department was perfect.
Prosgood community. good equipment.
ConsFar from downtown
Most interesting work as administrative assistant to Vice-Principal
In charge of the Vice-Principal's busy agenda.
Dealing with all departments (deans) reporting to him.
Fast paced environment.
The use of discretion and good judgement.
My co-workers were very helpful,
The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the many changes that would occur in the course of one day. Could be quite stressful at times.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being exposed to the academic world which I was not familiar with.
ProsI was so busy, the days were never boring.
ConsI was so busy that it could get exhausting at times.
Very understanding and flexible with students.
An awesome job to work as a student. Very understanding and accommodating of school schedule and demands. Lots of opportunity for learning and growth withing the position.
McGill is a resourceful yet demanding university
As a PhD researcher , my day is mostly spent doing experiments at the lab, in addition to the courses required for the program completion. With proper planning, I was able to attend the various information sessions, workshops offered by student services or career planning services.
ConsDemanding research load
Great place to work!
McGill University is a great place to work if you are a permanent employee. Unfortunately I took on a maternity leave replacement which does not allows for any benefits of any kind.
Other that that, my experience here was amazing! Great people to work for. Great work environment.
I was given the opportunity to advance my experience and take several courses to benefit my HR skills, web development and management skills.
I've also been given the opportunity to work closely with the University Advancement team and have learned valuable event management, fundraising and networking skills.
Working for McGill is without a doubt a great place to work.
