Queen's Employee (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 8 March 2018
Queen's has a positive face value in the community as being a "Great Employer"
The truth is, they are like a drunken step parent that we are not allowed to talk about out of fear of the repercussions we will face.
Queen's is poisoned with feminist doctrine and sexism. With 85% of the workforce being female and HALF of the upper hierarchy being female. Being a female is the first checkbox asked when applying for any job.
The HR department is feminist run. The Equity board is feminist run.
The university is so riddled with sexist feminist propiganda and false victimhood it makes working there very uncomfortable.
There is an overabundance of underqualified people in jobs making more than they should, and the people who are working hard are under paid and under appriciated.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – 5 March 2018
It was a great place to work for awhile. I enjoyed the staff, and supervisor. It was pretty much the most laid back job i have ever had. After awhile i started to lose hours; i think its because we became over staff. I also was lookimg forward to a raise that i never recieved ao o just eventually left.

Working for Queen's was a great way to balance school and work! It was incredibly organized and a great place to work and grow as a professional. I would definitely recommend as there are many different departments and opportunities available.
PhD student (Former Employee) – Kingston, Ontario, CA – 20 November 2017
I was at Queen's to pursue my PhD in Physics after getting my Masters in Particle Physics at Dalhousie. I chose an area of specialization in solid state physics, but my real interest was in Particle physics and Cosmology. I did ok in course work, but did not do well on the PhD comprehensive exam - not sure what it was called. Dropped out at that time. I continue to be interested in those fields and have kept up reading in the areas of particle physics and cosmology. I have a blog site - childoftheuniverse.ca

English Language Instructor (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 21 September 2017
I was hired to work a part-time short-term summer contract teaching ESL for academic purposes. The staff was clear from the beginning that this would be a non-renewable contract, but I was okay with that. I wanted to get experience, and a current reference. I really found this to be a great experience, and the pay was great. My supervisor provided all of the details regarding the days, hours, rate of pay, and details. All of this turned out to be accurate so this was a well-organized workplace to work for, and I loved it. My supervisors allowed for lots of creativity in the classroom, which was awesome. I would highly recommend this educational facility to anybody. It was a great experience.
Great supporting staff, well-organized, and great pay.
