My supervisor is in a different province than me - yet she organized for multiple people to meet me and make me comfortable
I liked being able to work at home/office whenever I wanted to - especially since my direct leaders are in other provinces it was not necessary for me to go to the office so I could relax sometimes and sleep in and not go to the office in the cold. I was doing software development on an internal website - pretty much I was adding in features and functions that users requested.
The one downside is that there is no other co - op students in my entire team and the people aged closest to me are at least 10 years older than me so sometimes it felt a little awkward socializing.
My team specifically was very inclusive - I just did not get to interact with them often due to them living in various places
The people are very welcoming if you talk to them and they'll often try to initiate small talk about the news or such in the lunch room. Otherwise people rarely come up to talk to you in a cubicle since you can work pretty much in any building you want and in whatever cubicle you want to. On social outings the team was very welcoming even though I was one of two females and the second youngest person there was 30.
The job that I'm doing here isn't directly related to my field of study
Do it! I doubt you will regret it :)
