    I worked at Statistics Canada part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Shift work was initially helpful for those who may need it due to other obligations. The health benefits were great. Good way to get your foot wet in call center experience or government jobs. Training was good.

    Cons

    Poor management. Double standards. Inflexible with shifts/hours. Felt pressured to call like a robot. As a result, had to do poor work (data entry wise) to get your numbers on target because you can't overspend your time on a case. No motivation to do well or progress. Did not feel satisfied especially when dealing with angry respondents and supervisors/managers who don't really care. You do get monitored and I don't believe it's random as I was told, very micromanaged. There was microaggressions and bullying from management/supervisors. Not much inclusion and accommodation, unless you are well liked. Lots of unhappy workers. It was a sad, unfulfilling job.

    Advice to Management

    Better HR is needed. Clean up bad workers and rethink the policies. Managers and supervisors need to be monitored too. Better promotion of work/life balance for employees. No more double standards please. More consistency across the offices. More compassion.
