Expanding and diverse projects with lots of opportunities to meet new people and explore relevant skills. The research opportunities at UVIC are endless and have great initiative and people supporting the ideas.
There were some wonderful aspects of working for this employer. The vacation days off, the friendly co-workers and all the green spaces on campus. On the flip side, it was also a disappointment working for this employer. Management did not support employee career development. The wage increases never kept up with the cost of living under the Cupe collective agreement. That was not just a cupe issue it was a university administrative issue that they created.
The shift times are very flexible; they fit your school work schedule. and the salaries are just enough to sustain you as a student. I learned how to make coffees I can make them in my sleep. The manager was the absolute best; so nice and helpful. the job was very easy. I really enjoyed making the drinks.
UVic is a beautiful and vibrant place to come to work! The campus is beautiful and there is always something interesting going on. In a typical day, I do a variety of different things and I love working with my co-workers to provide service excellence to our clients.
Overall it is a great place to work - beautiful campus, wonderful colleagues, great perks and nice work life balance in most of the places I have worked in at UVic. The pay should be higher to match the cost of living on the Island but all in all I enjoy going to work.
Beautiful campus, great people & room to move and grow.
Commute time from certain parts of Greater Victoria and pay

Don't expect a lot of variety in this position, you're simply contacting alumni and soliciting funding for scholarships. Gives valuable sales experience I suppose, and the awesome staff I was surrounded by made it a fun time. Very reasonable in terms of hours as well, and its an easy job to maintain even if you're taking numerous classes.
Accommodating scheduling, great student staff, reasonable hours
mundane work, people don't like talking on the phone, especially to a random person who wants their money when they might have student debt
Culture at least at night is very chill. Work isn't difficult but isn't boring. People are great and you get to meet a lot of interesting students. The volume of the job is very high - over 400 transactions a night as a cashier. Union protects you but also makes it a bit difficult to move up very fast. Still a solid job
