Long days
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 12, 2014
Pros: enjoyable team and environment.
Cons: long hours non-flexible hours.
Exciting mornings that led on to boring afternoons once that energy fades away. Co-workers tended to themselves for some time and the long hours got to each person. Early evenings came around and that is when things became lively and calls came in steadily.

Fun Day
Deputy Returning Officer (DRO) (Former Employee), OakvilleNovember 12, 2014
Cons: sitting all day covering ballot box
Give ballots and assist people in voting for the Ontario Elections. It was only one day spent sitting all day. The best part of the job was getting to talk to new people. Everyone was very nice and there when you needed assistance or a break.

Exciting and fast paced polling station. Great coworkers and helpful managers
Deputy Returning Officer (Current Employee), Greater Napanee, ONNovember 11, 2014
Pros: training is provided and paid.
Cons: long day.
On voting day you work a full day. Thirty minutes before the poll opening until all the ballots are counted and the station is packed up. Makes for a long day and meals are brought from home and eaten when time allows. The best part of the job was meeting and assisting the voters and registering first time voters.

Productive and friendly work environment
Poll clerk (Former Employee), Toronto ONAugust 1, 2014
Pros: friendly and understanding staff
Cons: long hours
I have worked in the last two provincial elections, and on both occasions I was greeted with such a friendly work environment. Most of the staff employed by Elections Ontario have a great work ethic and are very familiar with their duties. If a doubt were to arise, one can confidently ask their fellow staff who are more than happy to clear up the matter. – more... I learned a lot about the technical side of elections and polls and the importance of workers at the polling stations during that day. The hardest part of the job was dealing with voters who would display aggressive behavior, but of course we must be more than understanding and willing to help that voters at all times. In conclusion Elections Ontario is a great work environment to be a part of! – less
