Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Kanata, ON – 8 January 2018
The supervisors were really informative and it was fun to engage with others and advertise for such a good cause. Work was done in a team so the environment was really comfortable as you were also working together.
Good work-life balance but no opportunity to advance
Communications and Marketing (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 April 2017
CCS is a fantastic organization with an incredible mission. It's going through a major period of transition which has made it extremely difficult to advance. There's a great emphasis on work life balance. The people who work at CCS have almost all been touched by cancer in some way which means that the majority of staff there are extremely passionate about the cancer cause.
this was a good opportunity to learn a different job experience
temporary seasonal telephone recruiter (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 April 2017
a typical day at work was making phone calls to recruit volunteers to canvass and collect donations. I learned how hard it is to be a telephone recruiter. management did not give enough material in order for one to be successful at this job
HR Co-op Student (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 March 2017
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.
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.
Productive, educational and friendly place to work
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.
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
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.
