    I worked at Ontario Ministry of Community & Social Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many, other than accumulating experience for better positions

    Cons

    Some managers treat their employees well, some others treat their employees according to their job title. I have worked in public organizations for several years. This is the only place where I felt invisible. Quite a few people gleefully made a point at letting me know in passive aggressive ways that I was "just" the help. It became clear that as administrative support, one is not to speak unless spoken to first.

    Advice to Management

    I found that front line mangers in general expect to be treated like vice-presidents. Some managers do not bother with training their employees and get thoroughly miffed when they actually have to actually train someone. Well, that is actually a big part of a manager's job. Come down to earth, your salaries are being paid with public money, including my taxes. it is appalling that some of you behave more arrogantly than high-level executives at a private company.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ontario Ministry of Community & Social Services (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Very relaxed phone call, the format was 'Story of your Life'. You cannot really prepare for the interview, lots of people apply every year, I believe if you have certain key words on your application your chances of getting the position is easier.
