ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT TO THE SUPERINTENDENT (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 26 July 2018
A typical day at work would be to accomplish all task at hand and to have completed all workloads by due dates. Also to have a few laughs through out the day. I love to learn each and everyday, so I take on new challenges to ensure I am learning something new always. To support management at all times. There is always difficulty with any job, I like to re-evaluate the situation at hand and take a different approach to make it a little less hard. Always ask for assistance if need or ask a team member for advice. The most enjoyable part of my job, is the people I work for and with. A smile goes a long way!
RN (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 1 September 2018
Worked for a poor leadership team all of which had no formal education, common sense or ethical components of their entire being.
Ministry of corrections specifically , however I always recommend everyone who can do better to do better. Government pension is incredible - but the system is archaic. What they allow for, stand for and represent as the ministry will surely having you looking at other provinces for asylum.
Rate of pay, managers, work culture, Hr, literally everything but the pension
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 28 August 2018
If you want to be berated and yelled at, perfect place for you. Pay is not high enough for the amount of responsibility, or for the qualifications. Bossy is the culture, and they are always right. Why hire competent people, then tell them how to do their job.
Web Development Specialist (Former Employee) – Downtown Toronto – 28 December 2018
For this company, it can be expected to do a lot of groundwork when entering as a technology person. The adaptation of technology is definitely a lot slower than the private sector. For people with families, this will be a stable environment for them.

This is definitely a more ease/accessible method to start working for the government and get noticed in Ministry.

There is need for a social life in order from getting a person suck in the Job Culture.
Jr. Application Programmer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 January 2018
I loved different programs and event OPS organised. This workplace offered many opportunities to learn and build up career focusing on individual achievement.

Correctional Operational Manager (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 18 January 2017
During my tenure in Corrections I found it to be very educational and rewarding. It was a career I was very proud to be involved in. The most enjoyable part of my day consisted of my day to day interactions with the staff and the client population. The hardest part of the job was being acutely aware of the environment allowed for successful risk management. I learned flexibility in giving direction allowing staff to own decisions to accomplish their assigned tasks. I would highly recommend a career in Correctional Services,
