I really enjoyed the location I worked at, and the people I worked with. The pay was good, with a first raise within the first 3 months. The supervisors/managers were always so kind and only wanting the best for you and to see you go far (even though they also wanted to keep you around). The advancement didn't work for me because you cannot get another job internally until you've been there for at least 6 months. The hardest part of the job was the customer service, you have to have tough skin to work at the front because you will have to deal with people who aren't nice to you, and are not happy to be there.

The hiring process has many gaps and drop promises. If someone didn't get the job, have the courtesy to let them know they didn't get it even said they will let you know either way. Why leave them hanging? Especially after all the talk about having integrity. Very young leader without any experience is the problem and doesn't care. But a crown corp so they treat people the way they want without any accountability. No one knows otherwise so its all good.

At MPIC I progressed through the ranks with several promotions over my career, I used my accumulated knowledge and skills to become a subject matter expert in many of the computer applications that MPIC uses to do daily business for the people of Manitoba who wish to secure a drivers licence and to insure their vehicles.
The Coworkers were the the best part of the job, they were all very helpful and the environment was not at all clique-y. The hardest part of the job was working in the call centre, it became very apparent that the it is first and foremost a company, and as such would prefer that you make them money before helping the customers. It is also extremely hard to get out of the call centre after you've taken a position there, as the turn over rate is very high, they make it difficult to move up and out of the call centre.

great place to work, great people! room for advance. easy shifts to work, although you are always employed as temporary part time and unless there are positions to apply for permanant, you will have to wait 2 years to attain permanant status, at least thats how it was when I worked there.
This was a great company to work for. The managers were great and friendly. I could easily go to my manager with any questions or concerns I had. The job was a term position with no chance of getting hired on no matter how well you performed was a little bit of a let down, however the experience and skills I gained were great. The variety of duties made going to work fun and enjoyable every day.
