Relay For Life (14hrs Security) (Former Employee) – Aurora, ON – 24 November 2013
It was one of the first security jobs I have done, and as far as I am concerned it was an amazing event. The event itself is for a great cause so to be apart of it however that may be is a blessing and am willing to do it again any time.

Fundraising and Volunteer Assistant (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 24 November 2016
I loved that there was no typical day at work. I learned how to be very flexible and prioritize tasks as required. There was always something new to learn especially with the research department and when auditing offices. The co-workers were great to work with and made my day that much more enjoyable. I believe the environment you work in and the people you work with can make it easier to get up and go to work. I found the hardest part of the job was having to shut down my computer at the end of the day on time as I enjoyed working there so much, I never noticed the time going by.
Unit Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 27 December 2016
Hard working colleagues with no appreciation from peers. I was lucky to have good peers and help as and when I needed it. Management up in the air with no plan going forward. Training freely available but working part time, no opportunity to avail of it. Great organization with terrible management.

The culture and people are the strongest point CCS has. Currently going through a major change, unstable environment and job uncertainty. It is nice to work for an organization aiming for more than just profit.
Volunteer Coordinator Assistant (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 27 December 2016
The Canadian Cancer Society has taught me a lot about how to conduct interview and engage current and future volunteers. The Canadian Cancer Society is a selfless organization that cares about their volunteers, workers and the people they are helping.

Fundraising Assistant (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 15 August 2016
This is my second summer working as a Fundraising Assistant at the Canadian Cancer Society. I truly enjoy working for this organization as I believe all the hard work that is put into this job is for a great purpose and that is to continually attempt to make a difference in cancer research and change. It is a positive environment in the office, and my co-workers and manager are both easily approachable. I find it very rewarding to assist in planning fundraising events and see the hard work fall into place.
A lot of fun fundraising events you can attend within the community.
A lot of overtime hours that you dedicate your time to.
Great satisfaction helping cancer patients and families
Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 8 September 2016
This was "The most satisfying job" I had ever. In addition to all day-to-day tasks, a genuine sense of satisfaction was there by having first hand experience of helping cancer patients and their families. It is a very good combination of working and helping.
Comfortable work environment
Running into some extremely sad situations while helping cancer patients
A work place that is more than just a job. It gives an outlet to give back to ones community
Office assistant (Current Employee) – Melfort, SK – 12 May 2013
8:30 to 4:30 fast paced, varied tasks of data entry, volunteer coordination, and other office admin duties. I have increased in my data entry and other computer skills while on the job thanks to their in house training available. The Cancer Society has some very good managers. Co-workers work together as a team and are supportive of one another. The hardest part of the job is hearing the news that someone we know as a client or friend has died due to cancer. The best part of the job: Working together with the volunteers to accomplish specific tasks.
the people we get to work with.
restraints of being a non-profit organization. ie. Cost to raise a dollar
health ambassader (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 30 May 2016
The best part about volunteering at the Canadian cancer society is working that you are making a difference even if it is a small difference. It is very rewarding and worthwhile experience. the team is very friendly, supportive and appreciative of the work that we do.
For the Canadian cancer Society I set up a table outside of local grocery stores in the area, and sold yellow tupils to help support and raise awareness for cancer. I was in charge of greeting people and asking them if they were interested is supporting the cause. I then had to handle cash. At the end of my shift I was responsible for making sure everything was cleaned up and that i returned all the left over flowers and money to my supervisor.
This was a fantastic place to work. People came in off the streets to attend support groups or talk. Everyone was treated like family. There were only a small group of us working, usually in the evening. I would talk to be people about volunteering some of their time to help raise funds for the Cancer Society
