Great place to work
Benefits Administrator (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB2 August 2015
I was a benefits analyst. I spoke with veterans over the phone to see if they were a fit to get hearing aids through their benefits. The management was fantastic and was constantly working with us to ensure we were always doing as much as we could for them. The most challenging aspect of this job was seeing that not all of our clients had the skills to be able to accomplish what they were trying to achieve. This was a temp position that was filling, I was asked to go back for a permanent position but I had already accepted another position.
Pros
The staff was great and it was a fantastic place to work
Cons
It was very tough to see the people you were not able to help

Enjoyed my whole contract time; great people!
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Charlottetown, PE22 April 2015
While this could have been a boring job, I found ways to keep it challenging. The team of people I worked with were very helpful when I first started and was learning. My co-workers were all very friendly and supportive and most especially when I had a death in my family. Management was friendly and supportive to me during a very difficult time. Overall, it was one of the best places I've ever worked. The hardest part of the job was saying goodbye when my contract ended.
Pros
flex hours, fair wages, friendly atmosphere
Cons
short lunch

Entering the Veterans home daily. A home tells me a lot about the client and their families.I worked alone so I had no co-workers doing this job.The job wasn't hard at all. And the most enjoyable part of the job was making my clients happy with what I did for them.
Pros
Doing what I enjoyed doing.
Cons
not enough of a clientele around the area to stay in that job.

Excellent Workplace From a Student Perspective
Student Clerk (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON26 April 2013
It was a fairly typical office work setting.
You'd show up, have nice co-workers, do your work and clock out. The people are what made it a great job, for the most part it was just regular office work.
Pros
Stable Hours, Good Pay Incentives For Students, Work Not Too Difficult
Cons
Interchangeability of Bosses, Several Methods for One Problem
