Dynamic work environment with a variety of challenges
Intelligence Officer (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 16 October 2013
The CF had a dynamic work place but at times was unable to see other options. Very often there would only be one acceptable way to solve a problem when there were a variety of options that would have been more efficient or logical. At times communication would break down because there were very few people assigned to a task that was much too large for them, resulting in a backlog of paperwork. This backlog could be anywhere from 6 months to 3 years resulting in non-payment of benefits to members.
Infantryman (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 1 October 2013
Everyday we get to work, we go out for a jog of about 3 miles, after that we carry on for the day. We practice our skills with weapons, drive armored vehicules and much more. We are always working by two, some communication is important. Hardest part of the job is when we go out on exercises or on a deployement. Enjoyable part, we do things that normal people won't ever do.
exciting job, when you do more before 0900 am that some people do in a day.

A typical day at work can range from feeding anywhere from 100 to 350 people on a busy day in a cafeteria style setting. Most enjoyable part of the job is putting out great quality food for our diners.
During our daily routine, our first priority in the morning was physical fitness. Work consisted of morning briefings on the days, weeks and months activities. Training continued through the day on maintaining our readiness and personal improvement. Daily reports where needed and personnel information was needed to update files and reports for individuals on a daily basis.
