Very good environment for work, with very kind and organized co workers. Most of the time was uncrowded but sometimes was very fast paced. But overall was a good experience for me and I would like to participate in any election any time.
Short term positions require intense attention to detail and the ability to multi-task. A sense of humor and hospitable attitude are a must. It also helps to be very patient.
Short term contract.
Very long day or days.
Training is paid, but Election Day is a looonnnng day! You meet some interesting people (some of whom don't seem to understand that most Canadians can't vote directly for the Prime Minister), and you are assisting with the democratic process.

It was obvious an temp position but it had friendly staff and paid very well! Its quite stressful as theres a lot of people coming in and its important to do your job correctly
Friendly staff and good pay
Stressful and long hours
Dealing with the public - ALL the public. Attention to detail is critical. Ability to work with others is mandatory. Patience of Job is a prerequisite. Keep your sense of humour! (And be prepared for a VERY long work day.) (But I would go back in a heartbeat, mostly because it was temporary ....)
Friendly and experienced staff trained you and gave you everything you need for the job. Once on site the process of getting your workstation set up was seamless. The supervisor(s) also gave you additional explanations and clear expectations of your role. Bathrooms were accessible, drinking fountains were present if needed (pre-covid 19). Everyone was ready for a long shift well on time before the polling station opened up to electors. The supervisor was always ready to help out even once it got really busy around 2 pm to 6 pm. I did not mind working a long shift, it felt like it went by fast.
Great staff/coworkers& Supervisor(s), friendly and enjoyable environment, Well structured polling stations, Clear tasks, Great training and work manuals, Good pay
Long hours; can't ever leave the building so you need to pack your lunch
I truly enjoy working for Elections Canada. It gives a sense of purpose of giving back and assisting people in the importance of voting. The pay is good. depending on your choice it could be a few weeks or a day to work.
always close to home, casual dress, good pay
Great job for teenagers needing experience, nice staff only downside was long shift and some of the voters were cranky. A great way to meet new people and learn how to deal with stressful situations and work through problems. The training course had guaranteed pay and it was only 1 day with a near 14 hour shift
Good pay, great experience
Long hours, cranky voters
Overall satisfaction after 20 years in various positions with EC (electoral event employment only).Have worked in RO during many general elections, most recently in Ham. East-Stoney Creek. Office well managed and staff easy to work with.Worked as CPS, Toronto Centre by election, Nov. 26, 2020.Training adequate for experienced election day officials. Inadequate for those with little or no experience.(Note: judging training on duties involving electoral process, not Covid protocols).Hourly rate acceptable. Hours paid not commensurate with duties involved. Was first poll back to RO, completing assignment as directed but was not paid the bonus attached to a completed return to office.Pleased with involvement in electoral process and looking forward to continued employment with EC.
I enjoyed working at the election as a registration officer. You get to know the person you're working with well, and the voters were all easy to work with. This job requires professionalism, and you have to be sure not to let your political biases be shown.
Paid training, friendly bosses and co-workers
Only got to work during the election
Election work is usually short term. Depending on your coworkers the job can make for a very good time or be very long days. I have been very fortunate to have very good coworkers.
Meeting some great people
Number of useless meetings detracted from the amount of work that could (-- make that: SHOULD) have been done.Very poor record keeping resulted in previously devised and tested processes having to be redeveloped because no one knew where the information was held.
poor parking availability
I worked the 2019 federal election as an IO, and honestly, I had a lot of fun. My job was to stand by the entrance, greet the voters as they arrived, check that they had proper ID, and direct them to their stations. If you don't like interacting with customers in a fast-paced environment, and using your customer service voice for like 12 hours, this is not the job for you. You are there an hour before polls open to set up, and you may be required to stay for a few hours after they close to help count ballots. My day was 15 hours long, and I got two 15-minute snack breaks.
Long days, short breaks
met some great peoples and enjoyed my job started off with training for voting register ended up head of site security
great staff great job great experience respect for the staff but no overtime pay job was too short temp only, hard to get a reference letter, but for all, it was a good experience

Learn something new every day
Sometimes only 3 hours per day
