Work/Study Position

Work Study Position (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

I worked at University of Toronto as a contractor for less than a year

ProsI worked as a work/study student, assisting in a biology laboratory. My supervisor was amazing, with helpful feedback when appropriate and always ready to schedule a meeting.

ConsThe salary for the work/study position is almost minimum wage, and the hours we are allowed to work per week are limited.

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