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.

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

Great people
I loved working with everyone there. I only met friendly people. I was only hired on by contacts so you don't have any benefits. That's my only complaint. You learn so much from the people there, they help you grow and everyone there is like a family. I left because I did not like the fact that I was only hired on 3 months at a time, never knowing if I'd be hired back on. Other than that, amazing place!

Opportunity for advancement
There is support for career advancement and opportunities for learning. I learned that you need to learn to work alone and to be able to be on your own. It was very busy.
