I loved working here. The work can get stressful and crazy, but the management is wonderful, very laid back and chill. The work is very important and must be taken seriously. As long as you work hard and do as your told you'll be just fine. A great wage to pay for school.
I had a great time working at the IRB for the IT team, I learned new things and the work was fulfilling. The team I worked for was great and the management was excellent.
Great location at the heart of Downtown Toronto, access to many services.
Can be asked to work long hours but its well compensated.

The tam is professional and friendly. However, it can be stressful given the nature of the job. Unfortunately, there is no job advancement opportunities and little room for growth.
Stressful, little room for professional growth

An amazing place to work. Wonderful colleagues and work environment. Lots of work to do and very serious and responsible co-workers.
I am now retired but worked at IRB 23 years. Love knowing my work may make a difference in peoples' lives. (Refugees and Immigrants in particular).
A typical day at work: Most recent job: Being advised of certain reports that are needed for a given division of the IRB, I may request to create a dataset to be able to create reports using specific information from the database (called NOVA). Once the dataset is ready, I test the dataset to ensure that it works as defined in the request. Once it is operational, I prepare the dataset operational user guide that describes exactly what the intent is of each field and how the user can use it. Once finalized, I then record all this information in a Wiki page for future use by the affected users and our group. What I learned: During my carreer, I have gained an excellent understanding of the Immigration and Refugee Board; of general operations of tribunals, of data entry and monitoring, and documentation writing, in both official languages,
flexible hours, excellent co-workers, interesting work, part-time
Got list of refugee cases where I will be needed I learned the different types of problems faced by potential refugees I put all my translator skills to work, because each case was of the outmost important for all the claimants My co-workers were a very cooperative team The emotional cases were hard to deal with The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of have done a good job
meeting people from other countries
being hurt emotionally by sad cases, never letting your feelings interfeer with your job
This is a vibrant work place where, among my colleagues, I came to know of more languages than I had ever thought existed. Interpreting the contexts of the refugee rooms, n the immigration rooms and the detention review rooms is meaningful work that is challenging and rewarding.
Overall work environment was enjoyable, with friendly co-workers and management. Daily responsibilities included failing data, sending out notices to clients and or counselors.
