"Tedious tasks, no opportunities to learn. Most of the time there is nothing to do so you end up sweeping floors and searching for things in the warehouse for co-workers. When you are given a task, it will either be repetitively editing floor plans, repetitively assembling hundreds of mini computers, and repetitively testing pre-written scripts (worst thing you'll ever do). The students work in the back of the office in a filthy area that the janitor never visits. Better off not being employed."

"Zero supervision, you don't do anything important, no chance to learn at all, you're just driving around fetching things for other co-workers, doing lifting or cleaning up the lab. Students did not even have access to computers or a place to put their bags. Terrible place for co-op, wage was significantly lower than what was discussed in interviews. Just stay away from this place, you'd be better off at home or school learning something else."

"Very menial tasks, poor supervision, no room for independence, minimal and narrow learning opportunities. Only good thing is access to plenty of electrical equipment and components."
