It's great to talk to people from all walks of life while gathering important data. It's very interesting and fun! The hours vary and the Office is open 7 days/ week. You'll learn all kinds of different programs and applications
Small town crowd..good friends
Small town crowd..too many cliches!
It’s stress free, but can be demanding sometimes for certain interviews. Sometimes the questions you must ask people might go against your faith. But overall, it’s a great place with great job security. Somewhat fairly paid as you move along in years.
Pay is kinda low.
This is a standard government job - very inefficiently run, toxic work environment. Promotion only happens in two cases: 1: you’re very good friends with upper management 2: you have a PERFECT work record (no absences, no lates) They pretend to care about your mental health but then penalize you if you take time for it. There is a massive disconnect between management and interviewers. Upper management does not use common sense when creating programs and surveys. They don’t take into account that real people have to make these calls and don’t take any of our insight or advice and then complain when we can’t reach target or when people complain about us. Good way to get your foot in the door

Some difficulty getting someone to talk to who could make decisions but overall no problems. Not sure who my manager is most of the time and the remote work from home equipment process needs to be reviewed.
Pick you hours
It took almost 2 months from signing my offer to get started. Terrible communication. No one had a clue what was going on. I was hired for one job and instantly put on another one. I told them multiple times only weekdays and they told me I had to do evenings and weekends 2 weeks in to the job, as they were changing my position again. I was told it'd be a minimum of 30 hours a week daytimes and was given 15 straight days off to start February, 3 weeks in to the job, which I quit 2 other jobs for. Ridiculously bad management and no one does anything to help you. Job is awful too. Pay is decent but not enough hours and part time so no benefits or anything. Look elsewhere.
Did a three month term with Statistic Canada in 2016 for the 2016 census. The pay was pretty good at $16 per hour, but the hours weren’t that great. I always thought working at a government job would be Monday to Friday from start times 7-9am to end times 3-5pm, this job was a morning shift, even shifts and weekend shifts. We took phone calls, and then when that job was done we had to visit peoples houses in the area we were working at for that day and knock on peoples doors rain or shine. They, however, did compensate you for kilometres driven (if you had a car), other means of transportation, and parking fees.
Sitting in an office all day, working weekends and nights and working outside rain or shine
I can't comment working on Statistics Canada for other jobs but I can on when it comes to the job we're doing for Contact Tracing.A typical day starts with either reaching out for the first time, at the mid-way point, or on their final day of exposure to contacts that have likely already spoken to their local public health unit first so we are just doing the actual follow up. Management clearly hasn't thought through the process of the script we are reading at all. There are simply too many parts that don't make sense.For example, none of the scripts are modified when we are speaking to someone else on behalf of the contact in question. On our final day call, when they are on their last day of isolation we have to read them all the same verbiage about getting tested and ask them if they know the same thing as on Day 1 if they know where their nearest assessment centre is to get tested, etc.? This leads to so many people asking if they need to get another test, or makes them go for another test when they will likely be turned away, I think since they're on their final day. And we still call them even if the self-isolation period is over and of course, the script doesn't change -- it still keeps talking about getting tested "while you're under self-isolation" and "monitoring for symptoms while you're under your self-isolation" when it's over. I really feel like this was put together way too quickly and wasn't thought through well. I get sometimes things aren't perfect in the beginning but clearly this hasn't been updated. Most of the managers are really helpful but it's - plus...
Getting schedule 1 month in advance, helping the public, friendly managers
No direct manager, unstable hours, no solid information to work with, no benefits
To be successful while working for Statistics Canada Census, you have to be “all in” to tough it to the end. It was a perfect fit for me. Loved the goals and challenge!
Freedom to work at your own pace. Excellent support from management.
Always being on call for the duration of the project.

My co-op term was cut short, but I still had a fun time. I had the opportunity to work on in an experimental division. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. They were flexible with my schedule. Some of the ambient noise was a bit too distracting for me.
Worked at my own pace and did daily reports data input to govt records Met a lot of people in my neighborhood. Made my own hours....straight forward easy to follow instructions.....
Friendly co workers
short term contract job
They were accommodating and flexible about hours. They were concerned about safety of employees, when or required they allowed a team approach, for comfort of employees. They allowed unconventional techniques, when it was successful. When required, they backed up employees, with RCMP phone support assist
Flexible, fun comrades, supervisors were asset
Could be long hours, if you wish.
I accepted this largely in part to put me out of my comfort zone i am not a very social person and I do not typical approach and talk to strangers. But my team lead was very good at preparing us for most situations and it calmed down my nerves quite a lot. He also made sure we knew he and his second were always available if we had any question or issues at anytime.
Make your own hours, work independently
It was extremely hot outside in the summer
I have worked as a UX Designer in Statistics Canada. It was such an amazing experience working with multidisciplinary teams of designers and developers.
Job security and great pay
Slow-paced to get things done
I’ve worked for Stats and twice and I loved it. Both times were temporary which is sad. Training is good, support is good. I loved being part of a collaborative team while at the same time I had job autonomy. It was very rewarding being allowed to use my own judgement and abilities to accomplish the tasks presented to me. Anytime I needed assistance or had questions someone was always available to assist me.there
Exciting, fast paced, and challenging!
It was not a permanent gig.
C'et le travail rêvé pour une personne qui aime le travail sans supervision et sans trop de stress. Bon pour une personne qui est ordonnée et passionnée
allocations de déplacements et allocations de dépenses de bureaux
Management is incompetent and does not care about their employees. They constantly try to break agreements with their employees. They will change your schedule without asking if you are available and will schedule you against your availability. If management doesn't like you, good luck getting any time off, even if you give them plenty of notice. They monitor your work closely and don't encourage any socialising, stress breaks, or even bathroom breaks (though they will allow it). Good luck getting answers on your pay too. Worst department of the government to work.
