I have been working at York University full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Beautiful campus, secluded and peaceful

Cons

Every building is far apart by large so will likely have to travel all over. Kinda secluded, have to take a bus and a subway to get to the Yorkdale mall or downtown and transit system shuts down a 2 so if you're having too much fun at a bar downtown and forget the time-limit.... good luck coming back unless you pay the taxi man like $60

Advice to Management

Ask students how the campus can be improved, i.e. add pool tables in the common areas, and then actually follow thru.

    I have been working at York University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule that works around your class times. Great pay. Friendly staff and tasks are not over the top difficult. During quiet hours, there is not much to do. Great pay as a student to make some money throughout the year. Full time summers and part time fall/winters

    Cons

    Repetitive and sometimes very boring. Usually relatively quiet and there is an age-gap with senior advisors. In regards to training, there is a lot of on-the-job learning as opposed to stream-lined training manuals.

    I have been working at York University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoy working at York University. The flexible schedule makes it convenient for you to work at your own hours; great supervisor and co-workers to push you to be better and inspire ideas; you can break down your hours between studying and working all on the same campus decreasing the need to spend extra hours on commuting.

    Cons

    York University has extremely expensive and inconvenient parking, especially now with the building of the subway the entire campus is in construction, and parking lot spots are prioritized to visitors of events taking place at York University such as the Rogers cup.

    Advice to Management

    Please Prioritize parking for employees!! That would be great! Thanks!
