If you are looking for work around election time Elections Canada is a wonderful place to work. The team is friendly and inclusive and there is a lot of work. The harder you work the more work you will get; if you do well you will be asked back in future elections as well.

The workplace culture with Election Canada was enjoyable and supportive. It was a pleasure working with people with a lot of experience with elections. I learned valuable knowledge about elections and politics. I would definitely work with Elections Canada again.

I was up on my feet all day, it takes a lot of energy and patience! It’s a very interactive position, therefore, you have to be assertive and speak with people in your community.

The position of Service Agent is a relatively new position with Elections Canada. To be successful in this position you must be able to jump into the role with very little organised training. This type of orientation to work is not suitable for everyone. I was comfortable with the steep learning curve as I relied on my ability to source out knowledge and share with my coworkers. A typical day varies and it depends on the staffing levels. Some days were really busy and other days slow. I didn't find anything hard about the job. It is beneficial if you are fast at accurate data entry. Management is helpful.

Lots of preparation and stress due to the short period to get organized and execute elections at the Federal level. Long hours and not enough pay. Need to hire competent people instead of just your friends. Hiring process was poor for the election workers and the training for them was also poor

Learned how the voting process works. Assisted citizens in voting, documentation and general Q & A. Long hours with good pay, well worth the time and effort.

Elections Canada was a very knowledgeable, fun and interesting job. Had own hours on a time-line basis. Got to meet lots of New faces or many cultures, visit different locations and learn about other peoples lives. Lots of paperwork, organizing and filing, computer skills and handwritten skills were needed.

My day there entailed, registering folks of a specific area to vote, and guiding them to the appropriate polling stations. I learned how popular voting is among affluent community members. Management was great in helping when they were available, but due to the high volume of voters, they couldn't always be there. I never had any issues with co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with various personalities. The hardest part was keeping track of all the paperwork.
Pros
safe, clean, relevant to change in the city
Cons
mass amount of accumulated paperwork
