Fun and little to no micro managing

It's easy work if you know your subject and you will find yourself working a lot less than the number of hours you are paid for. Depending on the professor you work under there will literally no micro management.

I found teaching Business Englidh at Ottawa University to be a very challenging and unpleasant experience.

I have taught in many different locations and with many obstacles that I needed to overcome...I was presented with 2 TAs whom were no help at all My Business English class consisted of 103 students many of them foreign...I would have preferred to have had no TAs.They manipulated my power points...did not help prepare any classes and I did all the editing and correcting.

Points positifs

No pros Except for very nice students.

Points négatifs

administration was non existent ...

Not really fun to work as a student

Not really fun to work as a student. Work from home since the beginning of covid. No really any benefits for contract workers. It is not busy but stressful.

Good TA experience

The TA experience was good. The process to go through was pretty quick and simple. You're given a set number of hours to work per term, and while you can go over that and get paid more, that's pretty rare. Overall it's a pretty good gig.

Fun place to work

Fun, but not much chance for an advancement, contract work. Learned how to run experiments for undergrad students. The culture was okay, not much drama.

Depends what unit you work in

My personal experience at the Faculty of Social Sciences has been amazing, but your experience will vary LARGELY depending on your work group. There are dozens of little 'mini-cultures' scattered throughout the university, so it is difficult to determine whether you are getting a good environment before starting. Overtime is very common across the uni, and I regularly receive emails on the weekend and at 11pm, but I personally do not need to work overtime very often. The university does offer a lot of amazing benefits, and in my opinion, they really do care about their employees. They gave us the day before Victoria Day and the Day after Canada day as university-wide holidays, to compensate for the difficult working environment during the pandemic. They also had many free lunches/activities across campus all summer for the staff. Unfortuantely, if you are looking for a cutting-edge and innovation WORKING environment, this is not the place. They are VERY slow to adapt to change, so do not expect modern policies, efficient programs, and innovative managers! In this way, the uni is just like other government institutions; inefficient and unnecessarily difficult to get certain things done. Things eventually become modernized, but don't expect it to come quickly.

Points positifs

Employee benefits (free food, days off, university wide Christmas holiday, vaccine clinics, etc.), Many opportunities for advancement

Points négatifs

Parking ($$$, and hard to get a spot), very bureaucratic, pay below gov. alternatives, ancient systems/software (finance, hr, payroll, etc.)

uOttawa is excellent for international postdocs and newcomers to Canada. There were lots of mentorship and training opportunities.

The job was excellent for newcomers to Canada, there were lots of learning opportunities. There were teaching and learning training sessions. Professors are were willing to provide mentorship, workspace and tools were accessible. A free intercampus ride was available. Postdoc enjoyed extended health insurance benefits covering eye care, dental and drugs.

Points positifs

Health insurance

Points négatifs

Salary was good, but not commensurate with qualification

In my field I work with a lot of different equipment every day. Each shift is a learning experience and it's actually almost fun getting stuff done without being under a crazy time constraint and this is my first job I didn't dread going to.

Points positifs

Good benefits, central location, good pay, excellent work life balance

Over working employee/bad managers/

Perspective from an RPN employed at this clinic.

Worked at UOHS for 2.5 years. It started to go very down hill over the last year. Unable to keep nursing and reception staff at this point. Extremely poor managed office. Lack of professionalism by all upper management. Nursing Team Leader and Reception Manager lack maturity and proper ethics to effectively run the department. No HR team in place currently. No room for advancement as an RPN. Currently not offering any type of raises to any staff or performance review. Toxic work environnement. Very little to no positive feedback from Nursing team lead. Job posting looks good on paper but please remember to read reviews on other websites as well to really understand what is going inside that clinic before wasting your time. Sending good luck to all those RPN's looking for a positive job change but this place is not where you will find that. This is coming from a someone who left and it was the best choice I could have made. Only regret is not leaving sooner.

Points positifs

Good hours, day shifts, benefit package, little to no holidays or weekends

Constant problem-solving and challenges

Worked/studied as a grad student in science for 2.5 years at uOttawa. Work was engaging and stimulating, but days were long and work is always taken home with you. Pay is bad by employment standards, but breaking even while earning a degree is an absolute win. Experiences depend solely on department/supervisor.

Points positifs

High-paced and engaging work.

Points négatifs

Very little free time.

As a student, this is the best you can get. Not ideal.

Not an ideal job, but as a student, a Research Assistant positions is pretty much all you can get. You get flexible hours, and if you have an understanding supervisor, you can easily balance your work and life.

Flexible

Note taking was collaborative and flexible. I was able to take my own notes and work collaboratively with another student notetaker and the student. It's an excellent job for a first year student in the work student program.

Points négatifs

there was no standardized note taking module/program. We ended up making our own.
