    Current Employee - Law Student in North York, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Law Student in North York, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at York University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, secluded and peaceful

    Cons

    Every building is far apart by large so will likely have to travel all over. Kinda secluded, have to take a bus and a subway to get to the Yorkdale mall or downtown and transit system shuts down a 2 so if you're having too much fun at a bar downtown and forget the time-limit.... good luck coming back unless you pay the taxi man like $60

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask students how the campus can be improved, i.e. add pool tables in the common areas, and then actually follow thru.

    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at York University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule that works around your class times. Great pay. Friendly staff and tasks are not over the top difficult. During quiet hours, there is not much to do. Great pay as a student to make some money throughout the year. Full time summers and part time fall/winters

    Cons

    Repetitive and sometimes very boring. Usually relatively quiet and there is an age-gap with senior advisors. In regards to training, there is a lot of on-the-job learning as opposed to stream-lined training manuals.
