Operator, Guelph, ON - 2 December 2016
The people were wonderful, and the department supervisors were some of the nicest people I've ever come to know. They wanted you to do well and treated you very well as long as you worked decently. Upper management would sometimes make some weird decisions without consulting the department supervisors, which often caused some frustration by everyone.
If you're looking to make a career here, look elsewhere. Aside from the fact that most of this work can, and probably will, be automated in the coming years, advancement is slim. You'll be stuck as "temporary/part-time" for years on end, and have to wait for a full time to retire before being made full time. This means you're not technically union (or something along those lines) and you won't have the same options open to you as you would if you were full time. For instance, taking a day off sick as a T/PT is looked down on, and too many would likely get you fired. That said, I never had any issues dealing with HR when asking for time off, or clarification on something.
