    Former Employee - Census Enumerator in Mississauga, ON

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Statistics Canada part-time

    Pros

    The pros of this job are: -You are capable of setting your own schedule and resolving cases at your or the respondents' conveniences. Therefore, there's a good degree of flexibility in that regard. -It's a very simple and easy-to-learn job; that is, the tasks associated with Enumeration are quite basic.

    Cons

    The cons of this job are: -You don't get paid for the amount of non-response cases that you resolve unless you have the respondent's completed questionnaire with you to hand over to the supervisor (an hour of paid work = 3 short form questionnaires or 1 long form questionnaire). It doesn't count if you still managed to resolve the case, but don't have the physical questionnaire with you. -It's advertised as... part-time work that commonly takes place in the evening, but the truth of the matter is that most people don't want to respond to anyone at the door in the evening AND that in actuality you have to spend far more hours and days working than you get paid for in order to reach people and resolve cases. -Concerns that I reported about rude respondents or sketchy buildings didn't seem to be taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Please be a bit more fair in how Enumerators are paid. It isn't always possible to get a physical copy of someone's questionnaire because they don't always want the involvement of an Enumerator in the completion and sending of their completed census questionnaires. This in turn makes it extremely difficult to earn one's hours and in fact requires for one to do far more than part-time hours in order to get the... desired results to get paid for a comparatively smaller amount of time. Moreover, please take reports of difficult respondents and buildings more seriously. Don't simply take the case away for a little bit and then assign it back to the Enumerator as if nothing had happened.
