Great workplace with great Team.
Junior Program Officer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONDecember 2, 2014
It was great to work there from May 2010 up until December 2013. I had the opportunity to learn a lot, specially about audit files, the way they are selected, the reason why they audit, the tools used to do quality audits, and much more.

I also liked it there, because as a team we would spend time at lunch for example to eat together, or sometimes during a 15 mins break time we would talk, joke and then head back to work. This helped develop great relationships and also helped with the working environment. Management was nice overall.
Pros
Great Team
Cons
Having to perform some of the day to day Administrative tasks.

Assessment Processing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ONDecember 1, 2014
I worked contracts, never knew when they started and didn't know when they ended, production work not capable for most people. I was able to keep up but would often help others, pay was okay but hours were 3-11pm and all summer long, not for me.

Collections Contact Officer (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ONOctober 9, 2014
I thoroughly enjoy the supportive management and focus on health and well-being. They strive to make sure you are looked after mentally and physically.

My one complaint is job security. Being hired on a contract basis makes me feel less secure despite having a specific job set.

The hardest part of being a collections officer is summoning the fortitude to force your help upon people who really don't want it.

The most enjoyable part is that you work with people who can understand your struggle and will support you.
Pros
health and dental benefits, flexible work arrangements, high degree of independence
Cons
the union and the government have not come to a formal agreement on pay in the last two years.
