Fun work with no possibility to advance

Fun place to work if you like to talk to people. Make lots of calls. Management is horrible however, and the chain-of-command is ridiculously unintuitive. No one at the top knows what's going on at the ground level.

Productive workplace with your own desk. Management is professional, fair and impartial.

This is a great place to work if you don’t mind staying focus on your job and being monitored or rated on a regular basis. The pay rate is expected for a government employee. The hours are also the same as expected for any regular government job on a federal level.

not a bad place to work, people are kind and freindly

coworkers were good to work with, some managers have a chip on their shoulder so it depends who you got and they do have some favoritism. I would go back.

Great people to work with

You can move up quickly in Finance if you're motivated. Pay needs to increase, however, with the current cost of living. Entire organization is very much in favor with a new hybrid model, allowing people to choose to telework.

Opportunities to learn strong communication skills.

There are a lot of opportunities for learning/courses, everything from aboriginal studies to diversity and data analytics. Interesting work dealing with the public in a confidential manner. The role feels like an important contribution to society.

Good

I am just reviewing this to get access to reviews at a company I want to apply at. Stats Can was a decent job for the Census. Management was pretty good, the whole operation was pretty loose as it was a quick hiring/working period.

A lot of frustration and having people yell at you

I though being an enumerator would be a fun and interesting summer job. It was neither. People avoid you, yell at you and can be quite threatening. I do not recommend this job unless you have a very thick skin.

Pros

Able to set your own hours

Cons

Mostly everything else

Unusual doing cencus during covid

I enjoyed working as a cenus enumerator, my supervisors were excellent!A bit awkward to get pay stubs thro e-post.We had to use our own computer and phone as we worked from home.Not many people were willing to answer calls from a "private caller".We were compensated per day for using our own equipment but then taxed on that as if it was salary.

Pros

Casual attire, some work outdoors, work in own neighbourhood

Cons

Some of the software was a bit finicky to work with, Using own phone meant fewer people answered our calls.

Excellent workplace, incredible training to make you succeed.

Field InterviewerI was part of the 2021 Census Team, it was the first time most to the Census would be done online due to Covid. I got to talk to people from all over the world and from every Province in Canada. Very enjoyable and rewarding job. Management is the best you can ask for. The hardest part of the job is to get people to trust you and complete the information. There are many scams out there and sadly people have been taken advantage of, and identities have been stolen. Great workplace culture and you are doing a great service to Canada. Love It!

Pros

Great management support.

Cons

Job security
