At DriveTest, we are always accepting general applications for key front-line positions. While most of our hiring occurs in the spring, we accept applications year-round and keep applications on file for 12 months.

 

Serco Canada Inc. operates all the DriveTest Centres across Ontario on behalf of the Ministry of Transportation.

If you are a positive and professional team player who enjoys working with the public in a high energy environment, rewarding job opportunities await you at Serco Canada Inc.

 

Customer service agents are responsible for providing information and assisting members of the public at various stages of the driver’s licensing process. Some of the work includes responding to customer inquiries in person and on the telephone, providing information about licence rules and regulations, verifying driver records, taking applicant photos, scheduling road test appointments, collecting applicable fees, and preparing reports. Customer service agents must have excellent time management and organizational skills and exercise superior judgment skills. We require individuals who can work independently, meet deadlines, and strive to achieve customer satisfaction in all aspects of their work. 

 

Wage rates for customer service agent positions range from $18.23 to $22.59 per hour, depending on the position classification level and the number of years an employee has been in the role. Employees receive a partial benefits package if they work an average of more than 25 hours per week, and a full benefits package if they work an average of more than 30 hours per week.

 

The majority of employees work only during daytime hours, although occasional evening and weekend work may be required to address any backlogs that arise. Employee hours vary based on customer demand. The summer is our busy season, so employees work full-time hours from June to September, generally. The winter is our slow season, so we reduce employee hours to reflect the lower volumes, generally.
