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
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.

Great place to work in if you're a student. They really pay attention to your school schedule and are really flexible so as to make your work-study life easier to balance.
DriveForDreams Basketball Tournament Organizing Staff | Toronto, ON | Feb. 18, 2020
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.
