Reviews about Pay & benefits for Inspector at CANADIAN FOOD INSPECTION AGENCY

Good pay and easy work but not fulfilling

Been with the agency for over 4 years now in meat hygiene. Not alot of room for advancement. The job is easy. The pay is good due to having a union. Colleagues are tough to work with. Negative atmosphere. The establishment is tough to work with. Nothing changes. Upper management is non existent. They make 6 figures to do what? Your supervisor isn't much help either as they don't want to be there or to deal with more issues. Training takes forever. Always short staffed. Colleagues have beat the system by chronically calling in sick. Alot of employees you cant fire or get rid of due to diversity and culture. This is no more than a job to pay the bills. The biggest issue is culture. This is an easy job. Everyone wants in to do nothing all day or the bare minimum. You are either appointed a term or indeterminate position. My status has not changed in 4 years. They are their own agency. As such they do not follow the federal employment act. Basically they can do whatever they want. Job security is low right now due to implementation of new programs implemented in the next year. They can get rid of terms without any questions asked. Indeterminate they have to at least give offer a position even if it's on the other side of the country.

lack of proper structure combined with phoenix pay nightmare

Worked as an EG 01 Primary Field Inspector. Overall good place to work over the summer (provided you are not unlucky enough to get Phoenix pay system errors), but would not personally choose to make a career out of it if there are other options.


vacation days payout


no health benefits at all
