    The benefits and salary were great - lots of paid days off and great insurance. All staff can use the University gym for free.


    The negative atmosphere in the Accounting Department was like nothing I had ever seen. It was mostly due to our immediate supervisor, but I think the job satisfaction and treatment of employees was poor in general.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be more involved in monitoring their supervisors to ensure they are treating the employees properly. Also if certain things are promised or stated in the interview to entice someone to accept a position, they need to ensure that those things are actually being carried out.

    Very concise interview, large breadth of questions ranging from questions about personal skills and knowledge of student affairs in general. However the interviewers were late for the Skype call. Lasted approximately 40 minutes.

    Leading the way in diversity and equity

    Several Ontario universities have expressed interest in implementing the diversity and equity planning tool created by Queen's University. "It's often difficult to identify opportunities and measure successes. It's hard to say 'this is the progress we've made or the progress we are making,'" says Jane Ngobia, Assistant Vice-President, Diversity and Human Rights, University of Guelph.
