Grain Inspection Trainer in Chatham, ON
on 29 January 2023
Excellent job with opportunities for advancement.
Worked there for 36 years - do I need to say more.Was a Grain Inspector most of the time but was continuously learning as they had a great continuous training program.

Professional place
The CGC is a federal federal department. The worst thing in all federal departments is the very complicated bureaucracy. The best thing is you will receive all the benefits and insurance coverage according to the federal regulations.

I loved working here
Super healthy workplace. Best place I have ever worked at. If I had the opportunity to work here permanently, I would take it without hesitation. Lovely, lovely people here. Super professional work environment.
Grain Inspector in Vancouver, BC
on 29 November 2020
Great job unfortunately lack of succession planning and poor management stress out inspectors.
The job itself is great and enjoyable, it’s interesting and the commission invests a lot of time and effort in training employees. However, the nature of the job being shift work and mandatory overtime with the added stress on waterfront grain inspectors due to a lack of fairness, transparency, foresight and succession planning, takes its toll. As a employee you have little to no way to manage your work- life balance. You can’t have a weekend off when you need one, and you are always under the threat that you may be forced to be deployed across the country to work overtime and long hour for up to two weeks at a grain terminal out east. If you don’t mind being treated like a disposable employee worn out and then discarded, where the scheduling and work policies are neither consistently applied and/or verbalized, where you will be required to work at least 6 days a week and possibly deployed across Canada, then you might be right for a job with the CGC.
Grain Inspector in Thunder Bay, ON

Where do I start? TOXIC!!!!
Sexism? I can go on if any of this gets cut!!! When the manager found out I had kids, he asked how could I work this job? Extreme overtime? I worked 4 doubles and was sick on Friday but came to my shift. I was told I was required to work Saturday, but I work over my required overtime. I was told to get a doctors note for a day I was not scheduled to work. Was punished. Won
