    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    I worked at Statistics Canada for less than a year

    Pros

    Interview Question Describe how you manage offences with your former co-workers. In the overall, the position paid a decent wage, good working environment, good support from and senior Interviewers

    Cons

    - The outbound telephoning routeing could be better. - Low career prospects.

    Advice to Management

    -Could improve on handling staff complaints about not so fantastic workstations. -Decentralise the issuance of SAC so that regional offices could issue them to respondents calling in. Saves time and helps more completes from respondents.

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

    Pros

    Nice working environment in a downtown office. The colleagues are friendly and if any problem comes up, the supervisors are there ready to help. The salary is ok and if working after 5pm, 2 dollars extra/hour.

    Cons

    The working hours are not flexible. For evening shift, you have to work till midnight. At the end of the shift, you just do not feel like talking any more since you have done that for hours. Some people are not willing to take survey and you have to be prepared to deal with that over the phone.
