Well, I can't speak for everyone, but I'm sure I'm not the only EA who can hardly wait for a bunch of you to be hired and trained up and on the floor! My goodness the workload is....well, you'll find out once you're here! ;)

Are you happy with your job overall? Do you want to stay there and try to work your way into a promotion?

Hi everyone,

I have a few questions:

1) I got an email regarding opening in a few months back in mid April. Does people that get this email generally get a call as well?

2) does anyone knows if there is any class coming up for Toronto?

Thanks everyone and good luck to those that are waiting like me.

=)

"Are you happy with your job overall? Do you want to stay there and try to work your way into a promotion?"

It's hard to answer that question, as I made a pragmatic choice to leave work that I was passionate about, in order to have a living wage, which this job provides. And I'm fine with that choice, the work is challenging and fairly interesting, but I'm likely never going to be in love with it. The main issue right now is the overwhelming workload, which really is unmanageable at this time (even those who have been at this position for years, who are used to the high volume, are struggling). I'm hopeful (but not holding my breath) that hiring more EA's will help get things down to a more reasonable load. I'm not worried about promotion at this point, but it's definitely something attainable over time (movement up to case management positions at least) and encouraged.

Everyone starts with an 8:30-4:30 schedule until you've completed your practicum and probation period (approx 9 months total). After that the range is from a 7:30 to 9am start (i think) but it all has to go through management.

Hey All , got called for an audit manager role at WSIB. They told me I have a written test next week and its a "work sample". Because its for audit I am struggling to understand how the format of this test would be, has anyone done anything similar ?

It only gets worse as a case manager, but at the very least your pay is higher.

The fact is that both the EA and case manager roles are very tough. The workload and expectations are higher than what is actually possible.

However, the pay and benefit package compensation is very generous in comparison to similar positions in the public sector.

It all depends what you're looking for. If you want a job that you wake up everyday with excitement for going to work...this is not it. If you want a career with job security, good pay and benefits and a good pension and are ok with not necessarily loving what you do, this may be a role for you.

Can anyone who recently applied to the EA position advise if when they log on to the career portion of the website, under "my career tools" if they click on "my applications" and view their application to the job it says at the top under application in progress "not eligible to apply to this job" ??? As soon as I applied, I logged back in to ensure my application and profile were uploaded and prefect but noticed that section and stated I was not eligible to apply to the job. I was wondering if it had anything to do with not having a university degree, as I know that's preference.

I don't think the degree is a preference. At least it wasn't back in 2015, when I applied. It was a requirement.

The turnover rate is also due to EAs leaving for other positions within the department. I see more people leaving the EA position due to other opportunities within the board than quitting/being fired.

As it's been said many times, this is not a job for everyone. The reason why there are so many scathing reviews on glassdoor is that usually those who are angry need a place to vent. Yes, I would be angry if I left a job for this EA position and was not successful in practicuum... however, most of the people who are not successful leave on their own accord - it is rare to be let go. You just have to be realistic.

The volume of work is still high, but manageable.
Do other similar positions at Wsib have a similar practicuum process after several weeks of training like this Ea role? I am asking about roles like Account analyst, account specialist and so on. Anyone who knows can answer as well

I'm not sure - I have only worked as an EA.

I believe you are correct in that they require a university degree, and it is not a preference but a requirement.

Does anyone know if there will be any actual hiring of EAs in the coming weeks?
