Income Tax Auditor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 January 2018
MY latest experience was with the Income Tax Department with CRA in Edmonton was about a 4/10. It felt really difficult to get work done in this environment. So many delays, and many inconsistent policies with applying the tax act. I had several managers in the course of 1.5 years and it was extremely slow in getting work accomplished.
The plus about working at the gov't is the ability to manage your own schedule you could work longer days at 9 hrs and work 4 days in the week. The best part is the days off. That was the best part of working here. Sad.
Prior to 2015 with the other departments It was generally a really decent experience - 8/10 and I didn't have many complaints.
My latest experience was very poor and I know many people who have left to pursue other opportunities. It all comes down to your team leader and if they could motivate you or not. I could not continue to work in this environment.
Work Schedule, Days off, Pension
Some terrible Management, Inconsistent policies, Slow and inefficient work environment.
