Good volunteer position
Junior/Senior Tax Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 May 2017
This is a volunteer position and there is no salary, but it is a very good exposure to university student to have a heads up for tax. Some tax knowledge is required but you can easily learn them on site.

Good place to work
Taxpayer Services Agent - Business (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 May 2017
Good place to work if you like "slow and steady". It's a very good environment to work at a later stage of your career. If you are very adventurous, you may want to consider the private sector.

A great workplace to develop teamwork skills
GST/HST Compliance Officer, Toronto East (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON21 April 2017
A typical day at work entails contacting non compliant tax payers through telephone calls or letters. Once contact is established I was required to help the tax payers file GST/HST returns by providing them information and paperwork. Tax payers are given deadlines and if the tax payer fails to file by the deadline assessments are raised by me through use of CRA software. I have learned effective situational judgement skills, customer service skills, and the use of software such as Microsoft office, excel, outlook and more, The management is very helpful and encouraging. They focus greatly on teamwork and emphasising team performance and production. The workplace culture is very friendly with everyone very open and outgoing. The hardest part of the job was taking days off as the work piles up and is hard to catch up with missed work. Most enjoyable part of the job is the work culture.
Pros
Work Culture
Cons
Temporary Contract
