Avis d'employé sur Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
Great place to work.
Spent 2 summers working as a coop student. The work culture is very cooperative, even between different labs. The staff regularly organized volleyball and soccer games during lunch breaks. Amazing experience.

There are a variety of opportunities to work in a variety of different departments, However, just like any government job, seniority takes precedence. So, unless you find a department or task/project that you're passionate about it, it can sometimes be monotonous.
AAFC is face paced and expects a lot from the students, but it is rewarding work that offers a lot to learn. The pay is good and the work environment is good. However the Pheonix pay system is miserable. I was not paid the first month, was never paid the correct hourly wage, and I still haven't been paid my missing wages 3 years later.
Long hours, weekend work, never paid right.
