Manager of Judgment Enforcement (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 29 September 2016
There was never a typical day at the Sheriffs Office. As Manager of Judgment Enforcement, there were 7 support staff and four Deputy Sheriffs under my section. Responsibilities included enforcing money judgments, which was creditor driven, as well as service of the criminal and civil process and jury administration. Also, responsible for executing court orders. A very fast paced and stressful environment at times.
One of the most difficult tasks as Manager of Judgment Enforcement, was dealing with debtors who were being evicted from rental properties or debtors who were losing their homes.
As Manager, I was also responsible for the administration of the Jury Program and enjoyed that part of the Court process.
Clients receiving monies owed to them.
Debtors finding themselves in debt through hardship.
We are an Enforcement Agency who is responsible for the Collection of Child Support and Spousal Support. I am responsible for garnishing of wages, seizing assets, mediating payment arrangements, providing legal documentation and advise to courts, lawyers, clients, judges, employers etc.
Department of justice is a very good place to work with great staff even though its a stressful and tough environment to be in 12 hours a day. But everyone works together to make each others day as easy as possible.
Very great atmosphere and pleasant staff. Loved this job. Very knowledgeable information. Got to work with many different aspects of the job including Crime Prevention as well as attend a symposium for Ceasefire.
Legal Assistant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 July 2013
love working with the department of justice but recently with the change in reducing employees and replacing them, it has been difficult to work due overwhelming workloads. Most assistants here have now at 5:1 ratios.
