    StarStarStarStarStar Former Student Operator in Waterloo, Ontario

    This position is well catered to students, as it is not fixed to any specified schedule. I was able to take time off for exams, or to take up more hours during the less busy weeks.

    Nothing speacial about the benefits. If youre a postdoc you wont get a lot of benefits mostly basic benefits are given. You probably will get more benefits when you become a tenured professor or at least for tenure track position

    It is part of the program to pay the tuition. Every semester will give us two units of the courses.
