Avis d'employé sur Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
Happy, Productive workplace where collaboration is the norm.
Working for this company was fun, with the opportunity to learn new skills in various areas of Ag science. Typically the work-day starts around 8am, with lunch as well as morning and afternoon tea breaks. I spent a lot of time working in the molecular genetics lab, investigating dry beans, but also spent time crossing and harvesting in both green-house and field. Being a Visiting Fellow I tended to work extra hours, but could be more flexible in my work schedule than some. Perhaps the most difficult was the hand-harvesting of field plants in sub-zero temperatures in the late Fall.

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.
