    I worked at University of British Columbia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    To be a staff of the University of British Columbia is very interesting and very challenging and you
    will be pround to tell your friends that you are working in the second largest university of Canada.

    Cons

    You cannot work overtime without pay because it is under the CUPE 2950 and very strict to impose
    and you will be in trouble if you insist to work beyond your time unless if it is overtime with pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During job interviews, if someone was not too good during the interview, he/she might be a very
    good employee if you give him/her a chance.
