Administrateur des systèmes informatiques (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC6 May 2016
Technical support, Remote desk support, Monitoring servers, server patches, make sure the servers are up and running fine, take care of clien machines
Learned a lot from headquarter staff about handling servers, vmware stuff, switches and routers stuff
The hardest part is receiving call any time at night.
The most enjoyable part is you are always on the bit, up to date with technology

Great staff but sadly government controlled
IT Support (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC7 February 2015
You're in good hands with the staff here, and there are plenty of opportunities for both student employment and growth. Along with fair pay and opportunities for employment after Student Co-ops are done.

However, be wary that anything can change in a heart-beat due to the CGC being an arms-length Government Corporation.

Active Laboratory with research and testing done on Oilseeds
Oilseeds Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB9 July 2013
Overall my summer co-op position with the Canadian Grains Commission was very educating and a great work experience in the science/laboratory field. All management and co-workers were very friendly and willing to lend a helping hand to a new student in the facility. Between managing a project and working along side chemists on research projects I was kept busy throughout the day. The hardest part was learning to use new instruments or equipment, but once I was comfortable I enjoyed the work and reward of understanding how to use these instruments. I learned how to develop new methods, use new instruments and quality control in the workspace. I thoroughly enjoyed my placement at The Canadian Grains Commission for the summer of 2012.
Pros
Great position to gain general knowledge of Canadian Grains.
Cons
Only a summer co-op position.
