Intense, enjoyable, customer service experience
Revision Deputy Returning Officer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 June 2018
This was only a 2-day job, the first day was just setting up tech at the election location. The second day was a 14-hour shift. I had to get there at 8 am, set up any additional posters/tech and test the tech to see if it was working. My job was to give ballots to voters and correct/add any information in the electronic voter list system. This was a great job to gain experience in customer service, even if that was only for 1 day. It gave me a sense of how to work with coworkers and how a permanent job workplace could look like. Just like any other customer service job, for example, retail, I had to deal with people who could not speak English properly, disabled people, people with short tempers etc. It was very enjoyable working with my coworkers, my supervisor was great as well. They all knew what they were doing and if I had any problems all I had to do was go to my supervisor. Overall this was an enjoyable job, good starter experience, the only bad thing someone might think about this is dealing with undesirable people.
Again, this was only a 2-day job, with one of those days just being a setup, but it was a great experience nonetheless.
