I have been working at McMaster University part-time (More than 3 years)
flexible hours, work environment, encouraged use of student ideas, high quality of work,
compensation is mediocre for academia
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McMaster University.
The program assistant position is specifically targeted at Social Sciences graduates. They will send you an email to their target audience, and you can send in your resume and cover letter. A week after the deadline you should get a call to come in for an interview. They only call people who are selected for an interview. They give you time options, and then you can choose the date and time that works best for you. I was interviewed by three people, the atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming, but the interview questions were very specific and situational based questions, making the interview quite difficult. It seems they look for very creative individuals who can problem solve, and have leadership qualities that can engage the disinterested.
