The most enjoyable part of this job was how I had a schedule. I had a set number of days and hours to work each week and that schedule never changed.

I have been working at the client support centre (call centre) for nearly a year now and I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.

While the program itself is interesting, it quickly becomes redundant and it's clear that the only important thing to management are statistics. The schedule is closely monitored, everything is set to the very minute and there is little to no flexibility on any of it. Supervisors and managers forget that they started on the phone and treat us like children.


This job sucks the soul out of you. If you're one of those people who need micromanagement and love talking all day, maybe it's for you.

Great place to work. Your experience will depend on the team you are on. There is a chance you will have boring days depending on your position. There can be a lot of useless meetings sometimes.

I have developed a Lot !lot

One of my favourite federal departments to work for. It was a busy and high-production work environment but the management team still cares about your health and wellbeing.

I am sure my negative experience with IRCC was due to the working environment i was involved in. Micromanaged on a daily basis and a toxic atmosphere that made working there a horrible experience.

Data entry of PRC applications in fast paced style environment. Predetermined KPI's that were obtainable. Coworkers and team leads were very friendly. Mostly casual positions so not great for long term , and mostly 4pm-12am.

I really enjoyed my time at IRCC. It allowed me to study and work at the same time and pay my school tuition. The main thing I would say is that there is a lot of red tape.

Job training is fluid and you feel well integrated into the workplace. Management is excellent and coworkers are usually able to help when needed, not to mention that the work environment is pleasant.

Great workplace culture. Fair and balanced work environment. I worked processing Citizenship applications. Very good training. Most of the shift is spent sitting down working on applications. Team Leaders made time for socializing which was nice. It would be great to get a full time position there.
Pros
Good income, good work environment.
Cons
Lots of sitting. Casual\Term positions only available at the beginning.

I got along with my co workers. I learned so many new things, overall it was an enriching experience. My boss was attentive and cared about her employees. The department I got sent to was challenging and had a very steep learning curve. However, I don't see that as a bad thing. If you are sent to another department the work can get a bit tedious and repetitive. All in all, it was a good experience.
Pros
Great salary
Cons
Casual contract

This government position was enjoyable and engaging especially as a CR-04 you were given a lot of responsibilities compared to others at the same level.

Our division is a small group of 10 people which includes our assistant director.

We are a team dedicated collectively in putting quality work out while servicing the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Our environment here is to strive to keep a work home healthy balance, a work environment that is supportive, moral building and strong working relationships.


Management is supportive recognizing the efforts and dedication of those that work hard striving to meet tight deadlines and ensuring quality work output.


The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I work with an amazing group of people, all dedicated, fun to be around even when at times of chaos we still manage to keep the team moral good and tight.


The hardest part of the job would be when at the end of the day 10 memo's super urgently needs quality control and processing when you're just about to leave the office. But off with the coat know that it must be dealt with immediately.


I've learned that when people get together we become stronger and that most people are good.
Pros
First Wednesday of month we get to have 'me time' from 9am to 11am. Recognized when you work hard.
Cons
challenging, hectic

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is a wonderful place to work as a casual employee if you are looking to expand your clerical and administrative skillset. The pay is great, and the work environment is very low stress.
The only con is that it seems difficult to obtain a full time position.
Pros
low stress, good pay, friendly work environment
Cons
limited availability of full-time permanent positions.
