Claims Registration Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 November 2017
A typical day at work would be processing claims and calling to inquire more information from clients as well as employers. I have learned professionalism and time management. I have also learned how to work on different computer systems. I had a quota to meet every day and I exceeded the quota by using my time wisely and because of my quick ability to learn at a fast pace.
Adjudicator-ODSBP department (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 June 2017
The job of adjudicator at the WSIB can be one that is very complex but at the same time very rewarding. The adjudicator determines a worker's entitlement to benefits under the WSI Act based on legislation, policy and standard practices. Complexity comes into play when entitlement decisions don't fall into standard practices and that there is a lot of reward when adjudicators can provide a positive decision to the client. Adjudicators are rewarded nicely with high salary and benefits. The work environment, in times when there is full compliment, is second to none.
Salary and Benefits
Can be very stressful when work area is not working at full compliment, making work situations stressful.
Great job difficult workplace, high demands, poor technology.
Adjudicator, Service Delivery (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 10 May 2017
Great place to work if you can keep up with the demands. Excellent compensation. Undergoing huge transition with technology. Great people. However training is not keeping up with needs. Will need to continue self learning. It is great to help people return to their lives after a work place injury.

Upper and lower management morale not conducive to staff equity in work. Enjoy the clients I work with and love the opportunity to provide education to workers to promote health and wellness and improve work safety
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 20 December 2016
Though I was only there for a 1 year contract, this place is by far the best place I've ever worked at. The pay was great, the hours (9-5) were perfect and the work atmosphere was nice, everyone was very helpful and management are nice people. It's just a shame they mostly hire on contract rather than permanent positions.
Documentation Intake Clerk (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 August 2016
A typical day at work would be that I'd be filling in insurance claims so that they are ready to be prepped and ready to be filed. I also would sort out the mailing that the insurance claims are ready to be sent off. What I learnt on the job is how insurance claims are filled and organized. I was only shown once how it was all done and it was easy to be left alone completing the files. My co-workers were great, they were extremely friendly and always came by to see how I was coping and offered help if needed. There is a friendly environment working with other co-workers in the office. When there were times when I would finish a task early, I would ask my co-workers if they needed anything done which I would do for them with no complaints. This I found built up more friendship and trust with my other co-workers. There is nothing I can really say what the hardest part of the job would be because it was all relatively straight forward. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with great co-worker. Tasks that were given were fairly straightforward and if I needed help there were numerous co-workers I could ask and they wouldn't have a problem with it.
Excellent coporate work environment, with many different areas to explore and learn concerning injured worker insurance claims.
Sourcing/Supplier Relationship Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 July 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.
