Sourcing/Supplier Relationship Management Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONJuly 13, 2016
- Very comfortable, relaxed environment with flexible work arrangements, if necessary.
- Numerous opportunities for advancement and education (through lunch and learn sessions, mandated training, skills upgrading sessions, etc.).
- Access to a fully stocked library
- Excellent benefits package, including wellness promotion (work/life balance).
- Understanding, open-minded management willing to listen, learn, and implement employee ideas for productivity improvements.
- Co-workers willing to embrace newer employees with ease in order to lessen their ramp-up time so as to fulfill the team's capabilities.
- I learned quite a bit about the government side of the insurance industry, especially concerning Labour Market Re-entry.
- Hardest part of the job was understanding all the moving parts regarding the life of a claim, and how each area interacts with the others. Understanding the numerous acronyms used was also a daunting task.
- Most enjoyable was the hands off approach afforded each analyst to complete their tasks by due deadlines and the inner satisfaction of assisting others who felt no qualms about asking for help on particular projects, as well as management's willingness to listen and entertain newer ideas.
Pros
Benefits, shorter weeks, Corporate Health, compensation, flexibility, job security
Cons
Impersonal at times, parking, elevator availability at certain times of the day

Events Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONFebruary 9, 2014
WSIB was an excellent place to work and as an event / conference coordinator, and I was given a spacious desk and the freedom to work independently. Each day I would provide client services to injured workers by organizing the conferences which would decide the benefits that would be given to their insurance claims.
Excellent communication skills were needed to perform the duties
of this role and I thought I did an excellent job.
The logistics of each event and the research of venues were always a task I enjoyed. I certainly learned how to plan and manage my time efficiently and what questions to ask when planning events and activities. My co-workers were friendly and approachable and I enjoyed working with them.
This experience was very valuable and beneficial to my career goal and will be an asset to this position as an Activities Coordinator.
Pros
very interested in the planning events/activities aspect of this job
Cons
contract only - no chance of full time

day starts with review of overnight emails and any assignments for the day, Colleagues also arrive and set to work, The key learning is arriving early benefits employees who want to work at a fast pace.

HEALTH CARE PAYMENT REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  LONDON, Ontario (148 Fullarton Street)February 6, 2014
Answering phone enquiries, using specific computer programs, answered the enquiries as well as entered health care payments and information. Co-workers were great to work with, however, some less knowledgeable than others. Hardest part of my last job there was dealing with amendments of payments, some errors had to be dealt with and could be quite extensive to amend. Most enjoyable part of this job was the variety of work and the people I worked with, also working on the phone dealing with the public, while difficult at times, for the most part it was rewarding, when people appreciated the time you took to talk to them and listen to their concerns.
Pros
great pay, great coworkers, good quality/quantity of work
