TRAINING /ACCOMMODATIONS/FINANCIAL OFFICER (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 25 May 2017
Working with DND was stable and exciting at times. A very professional environment as well as focused. Being a civilian under a military environment at times could be taxing but rewarding at the same time. I would recommend anyone to try to establish a position for DND as I enjoyed myself during my time there.
I was in Gimli, MB working as an Operations Officer for 7 weeks. Along side 3 fellow officers we carried out the duty of making sure all cadets were where they needed to be at lights out and all through the night.
Understaffed and can be very stressful at times due to the workload
RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SUPPORT CLERK (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 15 December 2015
It is an 8-4 job that requires hard work and much dedication. We are always busy but the lack of getting information passed down in a timely fashion can be pretty frustrating. Good employee diversity and availability of courses and work days to be tasked to. Pay is not too bad but due to budget cuts from the federal government, we have not had a pay raise in two years.
Petty Officer 2nd Class (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 30 October 2015

Fast-pace environment with many twists & turns to keep you busy!
Secure Network Supervisor (Current Employee) – Trenton, ON – 29 October 2015
First of all, I have an awesome crew working for me. We are tasked daily to support customers with computer and network needs. My team and I can troubleshoot and solve most issues with minimal impact to users.
Management can be hard to please at times, but we do get along and understand the needs of the department.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with forces beyond our control where our projects are stalled due to bureaucratic red tape or the fact that our deadlines are not realistic.
The best part of the job is having customers forward comments to my managers giving my team credit for the hard work they put in to resolve issues.
Mental Health Nurse (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 September 2015
Generally a good place to work, but difficult if you are new to military culture. Each CFB is different with different managers and goals. I found it hard to enter into the culture. In general, it is a good place that take fantastic care of our serving military members.

Concurrent Disorders Counsellor (Current Employee) – Borden, ON – 2 September 2015
Working with Canadian soldiers is very rewarding and professionally challenging task. It feels very good to be able to help people who are risking their biopsychosocial lives to protect and defend those who are opressed and at risk of harm.
Working in multidisciplinary team has many assets. One of them is being able to share with others concerns, stresses, treatment plans and goals as well as simple daily worries.
Great place to work with and great people to be around.
