I had a great time with British Council as a venue staff. It depends on the person how they work in pressure or relaxation. I have learnt a lot that we should pay attention on our work only.

I have found many problems at venue that seniors did not have any knowledge about safety and security. Also some administrative and management issues I registered but still not receiving any response on my request. Anyway the Staff in Pakistan is untrained and only have peace of paper that use for announcement and also to organise the venue.

We normally enter at the very dawn of the day in our allocated institutes. The day typically is tough but extremely utilized and productive at full length till the eleventh hour.
I have learnt the systematic and organized discipline there.

Management was in touch with the invigilators and in turn we look after the candidates for any solution they need from us during the exam hours.

The workplace culture was smooth and friendly but very firm.

The hardest part of the job was the detection of the examinee for any fraudulent activities at the time of entrance or during the exam hours.

The most enjoyable part is calling all the waiting candidates towards the hall by their reporting time when half of them don;t listen the floaters.
Pros
Short timings
Cons
No lunch
