Overall good
Good benefits and regular work hours. The work can become repetitive at times and some client may become irrate or non responsive. Managers and Team Leaders are helpful though sometimes out of touch with the work.

Excellent training to prepare you for the role
Fast-paced, call centre work. Serving Canadians in the Canada Pension and OAS department. Intense and thorough paid training before ever getting on the phones with clients. Supportive management. Great pay and benefits.

Repetitive Work. Not a lot of foresight by management.
Service Canada is an umbrella for pensions, passports, EI. I'm not sure of the entire heirarchy but I would say there may be systemic issues with management, going up the chain. There were issues with foresight and planning in my department--pensions, and we have since witnessed these issues with passports. There are guidelines for onboarding and training that were completely ignore during my time, but were improving when I left because of major complaints and investigations. I think the lack of planning and support probably goes up the chain, and I think thre may be a lack of support for managment that just progressively erodes the structure of support down the chain.

Lots of exams and reading for you to be fully confirmed.
You must pass these exams or else your employment will be terminated. The exams involves lots of proccess and procedures. You just have to be reading even beyond your working hours to master the process and procedures you will be tested for. Its very very stressful but doable. Most days after the training, you will just be useless as you would have filled your brain with loads of information about process and procedures. Trust me, you will have no life outside of work for the first 3 months.You will also be micromanaged.

Not an easy job
I was at the EI call centre during covid. The phone was the easy party. Following the procedures were another story. Job requires an EXTREME level of attention to detail.
