working for gov't

Too much work load for a limited amount of staff, gov't refusing to hire more people to cover the workload. Staff are nice, we get a lunch hour and breaks.

A wonderful work-term experience!

They were wonderful to me during my work term. My supervisor helped me understand the basics of the job, and provided me with the support I needed to succeed at the position. Very friendly co-workers, and a very healthy work atmosphere.


Great co-workers, great support, paid travel millage.


If I had to pick any, it would be 30 minute lunch.

Good work-life balance

The government is a great place to work for stability and benefits. Salaries are lower compared to the private sector for jobs that require advanced skills but most people you'll work with are honest and hard working. Due to bureaucracy, it often takes a long time to get things approved.

Productive Workplace

I have previously worked for Government of Nova Scotia and enjoyed the experience. It taught me about services that are available and how to contact them or have the constituent contact them directly. The hardest part of the job was being alone in the office most of the time as I prefer a team atmosphere. Most enjoyable part of the job was being able to make a difference in someone's life.

Great place to work

Province of Nova Scotia is a great place to work. Great people and enjoyable working environment. You will be asked to manage and do lots of projects by yourself. This makes it a great learning environment.

A great place to gain new skills and serve the Public

I found the workload to be extensive at times, due to shortage of staff. I have acquired many administrative skills and knowledge of the protocol of a government office and the policy and procedures. Most of the management that I was required to work with seemed reasonable and fair, as well as the co-workers who were very accommodating when need be. I take on all of my positions with an understanding that the job must meet deadlines and constant change. This I welcome, since I strive more in situations like this. I enjoy working with great people and helping out the Public.


Working with good people who were down to earth


Heavy work loads at times, but not really a problem.

methodical work place with professional people

* A typical day of work consists of bug fix and roll out changes to QA environment. * I learned how to handle multiple task and prioritize them. I also learned how to handle user expectation. * co-workers were professional. * manage both user and team lead's expectation. * Learn about new tools and more in depth knowledge about Java.

Hard to get a term/permanent

I have been casual for over a year. All assignments have been good. Diversity is not just a catch phrase and diversity makes it a very respectable workplace.There is a lot of work to do and sometimes it cannot be completed in the time alloted.


diversity, respectable workplace


no benefits if casual
