Province of Nova Scotia Employee Review

Productive fun place to work.

A good place to work and be happy most of the time , great coworkers, equipment is good, benefits are ample but not great, pay is on the average side but just enough, holiday time and Monday to Friday day shift, occasional call outs after hours and on weekends but not forced, 3 weeks holidays once you become a full timer, overall a place to go to work and don’t work stupid hard but get the job done, you can learn new skills and get paid learning, union shop but not over the top union environment, you won’t get rich but money isn’t everything.


Monday to Friday, average benefits, pay and don’t kill yourself work load, great coworkers and management team, safety first cultural with lots of new skills training, bbq time in summertime on occasion 🦫 boot allowance and coveralls


Ticks and other bugs that attack you, roadkill picking for disposing at dump site.

Very Political work environment (Shocker) and not a comfortable atmosphere. Ridiculous uniform.

Honestly, it was great to be a page and learn just how awful this system is. I can't believe we elect officials that make deals between each other without our input. Off camera you see politicians walking to the otherside and hashing out the specifics. I understand that an entire constituency can't be there but when it effects them their participation should be more direct. Yet, most in the house will settle on any deal with the opposition so they can say "Look, we did something, it's their fault it wasn't more".My other complaint would be that everyone on the page team thinks it's a golden ticket and that you're their competitor - or they were granted the position as a page because their parents or someone they know is an MLA. Whereas regular folk like myself had to stand out amongst the already limited spots for the program. Watch everything you say because your team or someone in this house will throw you right under the bus without hesitation. The politicians included.Next, this job is marketed for students to learn. However, management does not want you asking questions and talking to others too much. Which is fine and understandable. However, your expectation will need adjustment. Finally, Management was not very compassionate to employees with burnout. They address issues with discretion but they are just as political as the politicians - if not more. I felt anger everytime I entered this building as it felt like everyone had their heads in the sky. The last a negative lasting impression on democracy in Canada for me. Destroyed my perception of any of the parties - 


Learn by watching, lots of people to learn from (mostly the lawyers/clerks), great experience to talk about, leaves a lasting impression


Will change how you see democracy, hot inside the building, Office politics on the strongest steroids ever, micromanaged with little leeway, policy, policy, policy.

Fun place to work, management not the greatest

DOJ was great people wise. Any bullying or bad behaviour is quickly dealt with by management so that is a major plus. The office itself is in bad shape and needs new equipment.
