Lifeguarding
A typical day at work included lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons, and occasionally performing first-aid. I Learned about customer service and first aid in this job. Management had some issues. Some supervisors overlooked un-tasteful behavior from employees that were their friends and not every employee in the same position was treated equally. The passive aggressive behavior and remarks made towards certain employees that were not as social or outgoing felt like a stereotypical high school movie. The hardest part of the job was the stress that came from difficult co-workers and management. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with customers.

Great job, wherever you're at
As a group fitness instructor, I a sometimes at 4 different buildings/fitness centres in one day so it can be a bit stressful, but you can decide if this is what you want, and work around that.

Not a fun place to work at.
Work for the city of Barrie only if you do not have a choice. full time employees make you do their job and manger support this. the more you do the more they ask you to do.

Growing Experience, minimal focus on personal life of staff
Even though I found that I thoroughly enjoyed my experience during my time at this camp, it was difficult to enjoy it during the end of the summer as I have many dear friends who also work for the City and they had difficulties when it came time for time management on the City's part. Although I am aware this was not MY experience, a friend of mine had to quit because they did not have enough time to focus on their own mental health, and when they needed to, the camp would not grant them time away when they had signed a contract for a certain amount of time. Their only choice was to quit. During the end of my time with them, I was granted a week off, which I decided to use during the last week of camp so I could have two weeks off, as the last week of summer was an optional working time, and I had opted out of it since I was moving away for school at the beginning of that week. After informing my boss that I would be unable to make it for the very last week, I received an angry call wondering why I was not there. I informed him that I had asked for the time off, and when he checked "again" he realized he was wrong and apologized. Their organization is less-than acceptable, and I do not plan on returning for fear of a decrease in their organization skills.
Points positifs
good experience, learned quite a bit to further my life skills, life-long friends and connections
Points négatifs
unorganized, unprepared for camp weeks, terrible communication skills

Great place to work for Students
The City of Barrie Horiculture department gives you a ton of experience and knowledge in turf related areas. Throughout my 3 seasons, I assisted in greenhouse operations, and plant propagation. I gained knowledge in irrigation systems including fixing leaks and testing of the system in the spring. I helped design and install floral displays, as well as the maintenance of floral beds including weeding, mulching, pruning, fertilizing and watering.

This is a great place to gain valuable knowledge and experience with minimal to no experience. The management and workplace culture was great, and every day was fun.
Points positifs
Great work environment, lots to learn and experience

Great Place to Work
While working for the city of barrie, I was a student employee at the Barrie Sports Complex. Working outside taking care of the sports fields was a great way to spend the summer. The management was great to work with and always gave us everything we could have needed

Dont even think about it ....
Worked here for a while in the Road Operations Department, if you are a Technologist BEWARE, management is a "joke", favoritism, insecurity, tons of work and more and more, because nobody wants to take responsibility for nothing. Big time "Gravy Train" with a large amount of the budget going to the drain in very stupid un-necessary expenses. You will not see a raise because the Union is "fixed", the place is dirty and old, all the technology is very old and your office will be a table in a hallway "Literally". Stay away from here, a very poor city, rent is expensive and the roads are a disaster. Many "under the Table deals" with big budgets cuts for Road Painting, as a matter of fact, the contracts are fixed between friends. Very toxic environment. Stay away from this.

Needs Improvement
Management's terrible. Definitely, A LOT of favouritism and is hard to move up the ladder. There are also a lot of Employment Standards violations. No Benefits, however other departments are treated better and given more pay and benefits. Management needs to step-up.
Points positifs
Decent Pay
Points négatifs
No Benefits, No Recognition, No Support, No Respect
