Fast Paced depending on location

Faced paced, the hours are around 9am to 9pm. Decent job and pay since it was only for one day, management is nice. They allowed us to bring snacks and lunch to eat when it was time to eat. Training process was easy and co workers are very nice and outgoing.

Productive and education work experience.

Working with Elections Canada was a good experience. It was a way to participate and do your part for the community. In my perspective, it not only have gave you good hours and a some money in your pocket, but it was an onsite learning experience too. You learned a little bit about the area you live in, and also about how to deal with problematic situations. In this job you are trusted to keep information private. The responsibility is quite large in this job, but it is worth it.

Pros

Physically easy work, and good hours

Cons

Very repetitious.
