Overall reviews at Service Canada
Executive Assistant | Toronto, ON | Jul. 19, 2016
great workplace and made a difference with society and people
My last office was amazing and completely fulfilling. It was busy at times but completely rewarding. Making a difference in peoples lives made a difference. Ask me more.

Adjudicating disability files
CPP was very good at allowing me to work at home and travel into work once a week to download my files.
When I was there there was very little movement for advancement.
I learned all about the disability legislation. Eventually I had to leave due to health problems
My co-workers were good people and helpful.
I would return to work there part-time if there were a position.
Prosworking from home
Conscontinuously typing 8 hr. causing physical problems after years of work
Service Delivery Officer | Kitchener-Waterloo, ON | Nov. 27, 2016
Production Oriented/Transparent/Policy Enforcement
Production based work day with speed of service with quality monitoring in a super controlled environment focused on public transparency, policy adhesion and collective group effort to meet standards of the government. Multi-tasking was invented here.
I learned to be skilled in listening (weeding through conversations for truths), coping with an ever-changing environment (policy, administrative (application/governmental, management). Knowing what program used what specific inputs (on a given day, over 10 programs open for assessment). Complicated and involved job that required attention to detail.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping people who really needed the financial assistance and learning about patience while honing empathy and understanding for other human beings and their stations in life.
I've learned when to talk and when not to. Diplomacy and tact - expert level.
ProsBenefit system in place & salary
ConsTiring and emotional at times
Program Officer | Ottawa, ON | Mar. 20, 2017
Great people and interesting projects
Service Canada is an employer that gave me many opportunities to grow with interesting projects and wonderful people to work with. 2012 was a devastating year for cutbacks and due to HR and management errors in paperwork I was part of those cutbacks.
ProsWonderful people. Exciting projects
ConsManagement not understanding HR processes
Commis (H/F) | Quebec City, QC | Sep. 7, 2013
peut être un bon emploi ou un travail et une ambiance exécrable
grosse boîte difficile à gérer. Problèmes endémiques qui font quasiment partis de la gestion. Beaucoup de chefs peu d'indiens.
Gaspillage de ressources épouvantables. Beaucoup sont complètement écoeurés de leur emploi.
Web Developer | Gatineau, QC | Nov. 18, 2015
Migration phase of many government departments
A lot of web publishing happening.
Many web reports needed on the state of the servicanada servers

Clerk Officer | Ottawa, ON | Nov. 16, 2014
I was a fully integrated benefits officer; which means I processed all incoming applications for pensions under the Old Age Security and Canada Pension Plan. In September, 2012 I decided to take advantage of an early retirement. I really enjoyed the work I was doing in this position.

Rewarding place to work
Great co-workers and a passion for serving Canadians! One of the best parts of the work done comes from the opportunity to make positive impacts on the lives of our seniors.
