Crew Leader (Supervisory) in Vancouver, BC
on 8 January 2022
Crew Leader (Supervisory).
Census employment falls under the statistics act which means no overtime. The amount of work fluctuates through the project so you could work 25 hours per week at the beginning of census and then 50+ towards the end. Good for experience building and gaining references, the job is as temporary as the hardships of the job and everyone in management is very supportive so there’s no abuse or pressure from the top down.

It is a great place to work and I got a nice experience.
I like my supervisor, she is very nice and patient. I learn a lot from the training. All I work from the training. When I have any questions, I can call my supervisor and get the answer immediately.

Survey Interviewer in Ottawa, ON

Horrible and toxic work environment
They treat you like a number. No advancement opportunities unless you are bilingual. If you are not in the Clique good luck. Every call is recorded and you can be picked on if they don’t like you
