Overall reviews at University of British Columbia
Had benefits from day 1, very good employer and lots of opportunities to apply for internal jobs after hire. I really enjoy the management style and workplace culture of this institution.
Taught young coders about coding
During the code camp, I assisted the camp teachers introducing the two fundamental language of website, HTML and CSS. Near the end of the camp, every student was able to build their unique websites. I really enjoyed guiding the young coders to explore the beauty of the complex programming world.
productive and fun work place
I love my job because everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to the mission I love that I have a great degree of control and freedom within my job.

Great place to work
The University of British Columbia (Point grey campus) is a great place to work, either as an instructor, Post-Doctoral research fellow, or research assistant.
Full-time, overnight position with little off-days
Would not recommend for those who are not looking to go into the Education or child care industry.
- must look after large group of international students with very minimum english speaking ability
- typical hours 6:00-23:00 daily
- developed strong team relationship
- physically and emotionally exhausting

A great opportunity to help students and gain valuable leadership skills
I was tasked with helping students complete a required project for new UBC students. I provided help on various components of the group project for the groups I was assigned to, and it was an experience I value.
Productive and efficient workplace
A typical day at work is productive and efficient, I learned how to work in a higher education institution. Management was knowledgeable and friendly. Co-workers were a pleasure to work with. The hardest part of the job is accounting for all of the other faculties and department and the different ways they work.
Good. Nice supervisor.
Schedule is flexible
people are friendly
work environment is nice
Develop good programming skills
need to spend time on learning and improving yourself
This workplace is a good one and it does important work for Canadians. It has been nice knowing the staff of this organization that is located in Canada.
A good place to begin
Great opportunities to gain employment, but hard to stay in the same position for multiple years as a student. They like to offer the opportunities to everyone, so once you have completed your year, it is time for a new face.
