I have been working at University of Manitoba part-time
Friendly staff and management, with accommodating scheduling and flexible work hours.
Wrist strain, back pain and shoulder strain can be an issue if you don't take care of yourself.
Advice to Management
The process of scheduling could be made a bit easier if people filled in a form with scheduling preferences, and had access to a calendar that could be updated by employees to pick/drop shifts they need covered, etc. Basically use of technology to facilitate easier admin related tasks.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)).
Two interviews for a lowly research assistant position (level 2). I think this was just a preference of the department I interviewed in and not the norm. Pretty demanding in my opinion. Questions included: 1) Conflict with coworker and how you dealt with it 2) Experience publishing an article 3) Experience in providing research assistance
