Poll Clerk (Former Employee), Sir Wilfrid Laurier S.S. (polling station)July 2, 2014
Pros: fairly simple work, decent pay
Cons: very long day, no breaks and not allowed to leave once you're there.
It was only a 1 day job + a few hours training, but the pay was good. Fairly easy job too, just a very long day at 14 hours (12 officially but I had to show up an hour early + counting the ballots after the polls closed and cleanup as well).

Cons: n/a
I learned the in and out of Election Ontario
Management and staff were very knowledgeable and helpful
The hardest part of the day was having to be at one's desk from 8:00AM to closing. I would have been nice to get at least a 15 minutes break to go outside.
Most enjoyable part of the day was learning some new.

Easy One-day Job
Poll Clerk (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 6, 2014
Pros: no commitment, temporary, good wages
They hire pretty much anyone, so it's a good chance to do some work if you've never done anything before or are simply bored and have a bunch of free time. Of course, they only hire once every provincial election so it's not really something you're going to do for too long. You just sit there and process voter information and record everything according – more... to the manual which you can just pull out and read at any time. – less

Fun Workplace
General Laborer (Former Employee), Alliston, ONNovember 5, 2013
Pros: working with family
Cons: you couldn't really mess up because its the election
A typical day at work was pretty simple every time all I had to do was move office supplies around. I learned I can move fast, I can lift good amount of weight all day. Management was awesome because my bosses were my grandparents. I didn't really have co-workers other then my grandfather telling me wear to put the boxes and walls. The hardest part – more... of the job was probably going fast and non-stop but it got easier over time. – less
