    I worked at Carleton University part-time

    Pros

    good communication between professors and TAs, good experience and good pay for that level of employment

    Cons

    Work all comes at the end of the year so you weekly hours are not actually weekly, they all come in a block at the end of term.

    Advice to Management

    get feedback on specific profs at the end of term--some profs are not good to their TAs

    I worked at Carleton University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus surrounded by the Redeau canal on one side and the Redeau river on the other side.
    Flexible timing and supervisors who are mostly helpful.

    Cons

    A compact campus compared to other universities from the similar categories
    The campus is someway detached from any major commercial location which limits the choice of food.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the choice of food by adding more chains/ varieties in convenient locations. Also, the timing of food court can be extended.
