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
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.
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

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
Hired in a term position to staff positions associated with 1981 Census and lead a small HR team responsible for Pay and Benefits. Following Census moved to Regional Office and offered a promotion. Reported to District Manager. Major accomplishment was obtaining benefits for part-time employees which made up 60% of the workforce.

I am happy to be on a team that provides public service. The job is well paced and provides a good balance of challenge and reward. Site is professional, leadership is well trained, and the shifts vary so I can enjoy my own goals outside of work.
I really enjoyed my time there. I didn’t do an interview but I did have to do a written exam. I applied In February and only received an offer in July. The other employees are great very friendly. The job is a little boring but you get to listen to music and dress casually.
Friendly staf, relaxed work environment
Long hours; takes time before getting a call
right Now there is a shortage of hrs but when the surveys pick back up I love the hours including evenings and weekends.
I have been employed at Stats Can in Sturgeon falls now for little over a year and I still enjoy going into work best place of employment. Management has been helpful and I have had a positive experience. The work at first seems like there’s a lot to remember but it all smooths out after the first couple days. Only con to working here is job security I feel like we could have had a bit more notice to such a large decrease in hours felt kinda suddenly
A typical day usually involves going around house to house getting citizens to fill out the Canadian census for the year. Most people are willing to get assistance while some people are able to complete it by themselves. There are times where people can be rude and slam the door in your face but that rarely happens. One of the hardest parts of the job is location if you do not know where the addresses that still need to fill out the census are. the job is usually between yourself and one manager but that manager also has more than one person that reports to them.
work whenever you want, short days
if you don't have a license, other forms of transportation may be required to get to location where help is needed
