This job will teach you a lot on how the Canadian Voting System works. You will appreciate helping other Canadians to are new to the country and want to go out and vote. You help Canadians that just become 18 years of age or moved to from another province or city to help them ensure they have the vote to say. I recommend this to anyone who was a challenge themselves this is a great way to learn customer/ working with people. Solving problems within a timely manner, making sure you are keeping track of what is happening. Owning to your own mistakes if something happens or you messed up you, must tell your supervisor because it can get you in trouble if you didn't say anything.
Pros
The overall working experience
Cons
long hours and the people can be stressful or demanding

Good for one days work. Disorganized when first arrived. But, we were ready in time for voting. CPS should be better trained. But hard to do as not an annual position.
Training should start sooner, with mock up set ups and closings.
Pros
Pay for one day
Cons
Organizing.

Was placed at a senior home, met some really nice people. I feel that the job was very unproductive because everyone pretty much knew what they were doing so i feel the job was kinda irrelevant
