Overall reviews at Statistics Canada

Census Enumerator | Calgary, AB | Mar. 19, 2020
Census 2016
It was a very interesting position. Worked on Aboriginal reserves collecting data for census 2016. Worked with local guides from the reserves learnt a lot from them.
Interviewer | Victoria, BC | Jan. 30, 2020
Isolated and poor direction given to interviewers
Good for flexibility of schedule and federal benifits. Motivation and direction are lacking, but management will find scapegoats if something goes wrong. Numerous attempts to harass interviewers into resigning, including threats about the jail time involved in confidentiality issues. Remote work and little training ongoing.
Retail Sales Associate | Saskatoon, SK | Oct. 6, 2019
Fast paced
Very fast paced attention to detail good vibe great humor good employer. Fair and reasonable and objective on job description. Positive feedback given when warranted
ConsNO Exercise TOO much sitting
Customer Service Representative | Ottawa, ON | Oct. 26, 2018
Great workplace
Great work environment. I learned to work on my own and manage a service request system on my own. The environment/staff was definitely the most enjoyable.
Enumerator | Halifax, NS | Jan. 6, 2021
2016 Statistic Canada Census Job
Did a three month term with Statistic Canada in 2016 for the 2016 census. The pay was pretty good at $16 per hour, but the hours weren’t that great. I always thought working at a government job would be Monday to Friday from start times 7-9am to end times 3-5pm, this job was a morning shift, even shifts and weekend shifts. We took phone calls, and then when that job was done we had to visit peoples houses in the area we were working at for that day and knock on peoples doors rain or shine. They, however, did compensate you for kilometres driven (if you had a car), other means of transportation, and parking fees.
Pros$16/hr pay
ConsSitting in an office all day, working weekends and nights and working outside rain or shine
Telephone Interviewer | Halifax, NS | Apr. 19, 2020
Dont think that you'll be getting full-time hours.
Hours of operations are from 9am-11pm. Usually 5.5hr shifts, but never full-time hours in a week. Yearly wage increases and $0.20 premium if you're bilingual. Surveys range from calling businesses to calling the general public. Cubicals, but you won't ever get the same one.
Document Preparation & Keying of various Census Docs | Ottawa, ON | May 2, 2020
Good working environment
Good working with different people and cultures. Good salary compared working in the privates. We have.a very good relationship with my supervisor and colleage.
ProsAll culture environment
ConsTemporary employment
Instructor | St. Catharines, ON | May 16, 2018
just a society of statisticians and professors
help to develop a public awareness of the value of statistical thinking and the importance of statistics and statisticians in Canadian society; work to ensure that decisions affecting Canadian society are based on appropriate data and valid statistical interpretation; promote the highest possible standards for statistical education and practice in Canada; promote the development of statistical methodology; promote a sense of community among all statisticians in Canada; and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners of statistics.
Administrative Assistant | Burnaby, BC | Jul. 4, 2012
Rewarding work, pleasant atmosphere, great team!
Variety of duties, with new challenges. Ongoing opportunities to learn new skills and procedures. Team-oriented, respectful management culture. Highly skilled and high caliber people, great teamwork and co-operation. Contact with public can be challenging, but also an enjoyable aspect of the job.
Prosongoing education opportunities, diversity, employment equity
Conspermanent positions are next to impossible to find.
Assistant Director | Ottawa, ON | Sep. 4, 2012
fulfilling and rewarding
-Usually busy with a variety of duties; not uncommon to be told to drop one job to take on a more pressing one; -Learned to have more self esteem; to take initiative; to have satisfaction and pride in work -Management and coworkers are fair; assisted me with home/work duties due to husband's health issues; great team players -Hardest part of job--paying full attention to details; travelling was another issue....travelled back and forth from Lombardy (outside Smiths Falls) to Ottawa and return....usually a 75 minute drive one way -Enjoyable part--looking forward to getting up and coming to work; dealing with the public
Prosgood rapport with director, assistant directors, chiefs and fellow workers
Constravelling time (see above)
