Good working environment for work study students
The professor and my supervisor (who is a graduate student) are very nice. The workload is reasonable, and I learned a lot from this work-study experience.

Post-doctoral Fellow | Toronto, ON | Oct. 21, 2019
postdoc
living in a big city like toronto, the postdoc salary cannot afford the daily life living there. This is the biggest drawback. Besides, the job market in canada is relatively small.

Really Good
As an overall volunteering at UFT, they treat really well. They accommodated me with food and drinks for the weekend while I was volunteering. The workers always check up on the volunteers, to see if they ever needed help or needed anything.

Information Technology Specialist | Mississauga, ON | Dec. 17, 2018
Fantastic Place to Work
All employees get lots of support, and the work environment is not as stressful given this is a public institution. The perks of the job are plenty including free food on occasion and activities one can be involved in. The university features a state of the art gym, one of the most renown libraries, and is surrounded by gorgeous forestry to trek through.

Giving Back to the Community while Reviewing for Class
This position is a chance for you to give people with special accommodations a chance to stay afloat in class, while giving you the ability to review class notes while getting volunteer hours and a certificate of recognition at the end of the semester. You will also be granted letters of recommendations should you need them - simply ask! This position does not really take time out of your day, since you can take your notes for class and then upload them straight to the AccessAbility Resource Centre database. It is a good way to study your notes as well as help other people with special needs review course concepts that they have trouble with. Management is very prompt, and the main office is accessible. There is always someone available to help you when you go in. Emails are the main form of communication, so check often!
ProsReview notes, help others, volunteer hours, certificate of recognition, easy access to letters of recommendation
ConsRequires self-discipline and a regular uploading
