Enjoyable co-workers, and relaxing environment
Tax Roll Integrity Clerk (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON9 May 2012
I was always on time for work, I would start by doing the important work first then continue with the regular work. I learned alot about working with others, and that a customer is always right. My managers were already ready to help and very supportive. I enjoyed all my co-workers and got along great with them. The hardest part of my job was the language difference with customers that telephoned in. I was very proud when I told people that I worked for the Ministry of Finance. What a wonderful place to work.
relaxing environment, very good managers and co-workers, enjoyed using the computers, learning the new programs
sometimes the week was long enough, understanding the difference languages, irate customers
