Payment Service Officer in Toronto, ON
on 23 June 2022
Once you enter into the government, you basically enter to all internal position, the only downside is that the process of applications and hiring takes FOREVER. Super slow. But people are nice to work with, great culture exposure and team work.

Challenging work environment
Challenging and alot of different departments to work for and move up. Great training and tools provided. Management is approachable for the most part.

Good opportunity
It's a good opportunity to work in the government. You start out as temporary then there is the possibility of extension. Important thing is to clear your monitoring period. During training make sure you learn everything and give extra hours for yourself outside the training to understand the material. Management and team leads are there to only look at the schedule, which is generally not really helpful, must learn to help yourself (spent extra time knowing your job). Pay is good, benefit good can be better, a generous amount of vacation 3 weeks, 10-15 sick, lieu days, volunteer days.

Collaborative and a very self fulfilling job indeed
Working for the government is very self fulfilling. To be able to learn new skills about public service. It requires dedication, passion for public service and repetitive tasks that includes mostly sitting for long hours in front of the computer.

Great work-life balance and teams
Management is always helpful and understanding. Hours were very flexible to accomodate for all employees home life. Advancement is not always easy due to the organizational structure
