Great!
The manager was a great person and also super helpful and helped whenever he could. He went beyond with his clients and his employees. I would recommend working here if you are thinking of going into the archeology field.

During a short assignment, although I faced challenging situations, the atmosphere was of productivity and collaboration.

Fun workplace
The Mackenzie King Estate is a really fun place to work at because you're basically outside all day. It involves a lot of walking and learning and is the ideal summer job!
Pros
Nature, walking a lot
Cons
Isolated work environment and accessed only by vehicle

Winterlude, Canada day
I love volunteering for them. It makes me feel good to help people. They are the most welcoming and energetic people. They are always willing to make people have the best day ever. They helped me develop my costumer service skills.

Productive, hard work and very rewarding
Working for the NCC at the Official Residences was very hard work, but it paid off. As a junior gardener, I reported to the senior gardeners but I was able to organize and guide the students in order to accomplish tasks effectively and in a timely manner. Management was truly amazing as we all worked as a team and they made me feel very comfortable if I had any questions regarding plants or procedures. The hardest part of the job was that certain days it could be very physically draining, but that comes with the job title. The most enjoyable part of my job was the atmosphere and the job itself was very rewarding. The NCC/ the Official residences is a great place to work with very positive attitudes!
