Courtroom Clerk/Registrar (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 12 August 2016
A typical day at work would be stressful, lots of paperwork to complete in a timely fashion. This job is not for someone who can't deal with significant stress. Usually had a good relationship with everyone, I felt thankful to have an excellent paying job with benefits. I learned even more about being meticulously organized and working as a team, with someone else in an extremely busy court. My listening skills were sharpened because the paperwork had to be accurate before the Justice would sign, thus making it an order. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I assisted in so many different ways. I always felt elated when I could change a feeling of despair, into a grateful smile. As for management in a bureaucracy, the very nature of the word tells the story.
clean environment, good wages and excellent commuting vehicles

Courtroom Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 April 2016
This was an excellent environment to work in. Although I was only employed here for 6 months for work experience, it was an amazing 6 months spent with some of the most friendly people. Work was repetitive, and a little tedious at times. The hardest part was everyday decisions, as I wasn't trained on how to deal with some issues in the workplace. Overall, great place to work at.

Court Reporter/Courtroom clerk (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 6 November 2014
This is a career located in a safe, comfortable environment where I am working with a variety of co-workers such as judges, clerks and lawyers. My co-workers are a friendly group who work together each day to accomplish our goal in serving the public. I consider it a low stress position, however, in the past I felt it was at times highly stressful. My position as court reporter is to record the entire proceedings in my courtroom each day and type transcripts as ordered. The hours and days vary each week, which can either be positive or less so. Thankfully, the fee we can now charge per page for typing transcripts was increased after decades of staying the same.
