Former Employee - Administrative  in  Vancouver, BC (Canada)
Former Employee - Administrative in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

Pros

To be a staff of the University of British Columbia is very interesting and very challenging and you
will be pround to tell your friends that you are working in the second largest university of Canada.

Cons

You cannot work overtime without pay because it is under the CUPE 2950 and very strict to impose
and you will be in trouble if you insist to work beyond your time unless if it is overtime with pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

During job interviews, if someone was not too good during the interview, he/she might be a very
good employee if you give him/her a chance.

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO
