Great Benefits, Competitive Salary, Encourages Collaboration

Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsYork University's benefits are the best I have ever had past and present. The pay was competitive and they provided many opportunities for professional development, such as workshops, lunch meetings with other faculty members.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
