  1. Depends, but most of the time its boring. Pay is okay.

  2. Pay is good, you get access to a lot of free courses.But most of the time there is barely any work to be done! Also the people are pretty good, actually that depends on which ministry you end up in.

  4. One huge advantage of doing a government coop is that as long as you do one (with any department, at any point in your university career) you can be bridged in to a permanent job wayyyyyy easier after graduation. If you're thinking of working for the government as a career, I'd recommend doing a governemtn coop.

  6. Hi OP, this probably only got posted after rankings closed, but I worked for the Ontario gov last term. It has it's goods and bads, like any other job. And at the end of four months, you'll get to know whether working for the gov is for you or not!
