  1. "HRSDC - Service Canada"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Payment Service Officer in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Payment Service Officer in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Most people are friendly.
    - Hours are good.
    - An open door to other and better things within the government.
    - Nowadays team leaders are really professional and personable.
    - Some co-workers are very nice.

    Cons

    - Competitions are a joke and most are rigged.
    - Contracts are preposterous. They hardly make you indeterminate. Your hard work is just to make management look good and instead of motivating their employees they use these impossible clauses on a contract so they are able to lay you off as needed.
    - Being laid off and rehired all the time is stressful.
    - One of the worst departments to work for in the Federal Government (only loses to Correctional Services)
    - Low morale, some co-workers are really two-faced and permanent employees will slack off when terms are doing most of the work.
    - Will keep term employees that disrupt the peace, are negative influences and unsettle the work environment with their immaturity and paranoia.
    - Union will fight mainly for permanent employees. Term employees are kind fo left in the wind midway into a grieving process.
    - Team leaders changed more than 8 times in 2 years: no teamwork due to dissolving of teams several times a year.

    Advice to Management

    - Make the hard working employees permanent after three contract extensions, within 3 years tops.
    - Cancel once and for all ridiculous clauses such as "The Suset Clause"
    - Management should try to look less High and Mighty and talk to us, common folks, from time to time.
