I worked at York University (more than 5 years)

Pros

Hours 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.

Cons

Full 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at York University part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work in a student-friendly university environment that's culturally diverse. Great place to work if you're doing a Work/Study position. You gain professional experience in your major. The work/life balance is also good because employers know school comes first and work around your class schedule.

    Cons

    As writers, our team was promised our articles would be archived for future reference. Unfortunately, many of my articles that I worked very hard on were left unpublished and my older articles that were published on the blog were deleted. All that work for nothing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your promises and don't delete your employees' work. We need them for our portfolio
