Great work for students

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
North York, ON (Canada)

I worked at York University for more than 5 years

ProsHours are usually compatible with study, and the unions ensure that we're not overworked. The pay is reasonable for the work, and most of the people I worked with were very friendly.

ConsFull time faculty seems stretched thin at times, and often one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Red tape can often slow things down considerably or make otherwise simple tasks impossible.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe school is huge and still growing- it's important that there be enough faculty to handle this.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
