Best pay for not a lot of work

Lab Technician (Current Employee)
Surrey, BC

I have been working at Simon Fraser University part-time for more than a year

ProsUnion paid jobs means getting paid more than the minimum wage. Good managers however getting shifts worked out can be a hassle at the best of times.

ConsThere are no cons to working here. Be forewarned of being a part of a money hungry union. Don't really like union jobs but there's no alternative to working in one.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople abusing the system

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great experience as a TA

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
Surrey, BC

I have been working at Simon Fraser University part-time for less than a year


Pros: Strong TA/Grad Student union, actively fighting for work-life balance and reasonable working conditions. Most profs are passionate and great to work with. Paid sick… Cons: Difficult to enforce limited working hours when marking and etc. Pretty much… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
