Productive and fast-paced environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked at Industry Canada for over 20 years and I enjoyed working with my peers and subordinates. I especially enjoyed the location, i.e. downtown which took me roughly 25 minutes by bus to get to work. The job was stimulating and i was able to move up the ladder fairly quickly. I would recommend anyone who is truly interested in working in a fast-paced environment and enjoys teamwork to seriously consider working at Industry Canada.

Very Clicky culture

they abuse temp workers and bully them in to working long hours. they rarely hire them full time and just continue to renew the contract with the hiring firm so they never have to give you benefits or paid vacation

Worked there as a student

Horrible management of employees and resources. Many inefficiencies. Lack of oversight, career development, motivation. Cancelled my contract without telling myself or my manager.

Great place to work, with great colleagues. I love 2.0 office spaces and walking stations. The Campus is close to a lot of amenities and offers great views.

Industry Canada

A typical work day was going through various applications and making the necessary adjustments or changes. I learned a lot from report tools, front end UI and UX as well as back end coding, framework, server side and databases. The environment was very good and everyone working there were really motivated and easy going, it made for an easy work area where a lot was able to get done.

Mostly busy work

No real learning opportunity as there was no guidance from senior employees or manager. However loved the daily life and the other coops worked with. Furthermore I've created a database that is still probably being used.

I truly enjoy my work environment as well as my co-workers and management team.

My typical day at work consists of an ongoing stream of demands from Management for HR related requests.
