Enjoyed my whole contract time; great people!
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Charlottetown, PEApril 22, 2015
While this could have been a boring job, I found ways to keep it challenging. The team of people I worked with were very helpful when I first started and was learning. My co-workers were all very friendly and supportive and most especially when I had a death in my family. Management was friendly and supportive to me during a very difficult time. Overall, it was one of the best places I've ever worked. The hardest part of the job was saying goodbye when my contract ended.
Pros
flex hours, fair wages, friendly atmosphere
Cons
short lunch

Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Wainwright, ABOctober 28, 2013
Entering the Veterans home daily. A home tells me a lot about the client and their families.I worked alone so I had no co-workers doing this job.The job wasn't hard at all. And the most enjoyable part of the job was making my clients happy with what I did for them.
Pros
doing what i enjoyed doing.
Cons
not enough of a clientele around the area to stay in that job.

Excellent Workplace From a Student Perspective
Student Clerk (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONApril 26, 2013
It was a fairly typical office work setting.
You'd show up, have nice co-workers, do your work and clock out. The people are what made it a great job, for the most part it was just regular office work.
Pros
stable hours, good pay incentives for students, work not too difficult
Cons
interchangeability of bosses, several methods for one problem
