Busyness fluctuates throughout the day, but working collaboratively makes it do-able. I learned to manage time, prioritize tasks, and honed my interpersonal skills.

Because the City of Burnaby is a large municipal organization, every position and department will potentially have its own pros, cons and experiences.

Because everyone in my position begins as an auxiliary worker, it can be difficult obtaining enough hours solely doing this job. Many people work other auxiliary positions within the City (or at other municipalities) to fill this need. Part-time and full-time permanent positions come very rarely and are highly competitive to obtain as the senior staff usually bid their time and are waiting to snatch the opportunity for permanent full-time work when it becomes available. Otherwise, the job duties are pretty standard and managers are good. Cannot complain about the work environment.

Points positifs

Good pay, unionized job, stress-free work environment.

Points négatifs

Shift work, irregular hours/shifts, very few part-time and full-time positions.

disorganized

Depending on your supervisor, they all play favorites. None of the union collective agreements are followed. New friends of management are hired and given hours instead of offering them to existing employees. Hour can be cut at any time. standard breaks are non existent. Overtime is carried over and added to other days, so you don't get time and a half, and the supervisor looks good for not having staff work overtime.

Great atmosphere and flexible hours, perfect for students.

Great friendly atmosphere, shifts are typically 4-5hrs which are great for students. Typical shifts are repetitive and usually very straight forward which also makes it a great option for a first job.

Fun place to work because I deal with many people

Volunteered at the City of Burnaby for many summers. But how can one get employed at the City? Places like this are nepotism inspired places! If you are not related to anybody already working inside -you won’t get hired at all!

Points positifs

Dealing with public is fun

Points négatifs

Nepotism

Worst employer experience

Got injured permanently after countless efforts to try to refuse unsafe work. I was off for over a year with barely any contact with the employer. Absolutely no effort for accomadations for permanently injured workers. I was working fulltime as a auxiliary mon-fri prior to injury. All hr could come up with over a year later was a on call position with a pay cut. Also the union offers barely any support and is most likely in bed with management. Total shock that this is a government sector employer. SHADY BUSINESS!

Points positifs

Pay is good

You work here because you have to

Terrible, this company is absolutely terrible. There is nothing positive about working here. I couldn't get paid enough if I were to offered another job at this horrible workplace.

Points négatifs

Worst place to work, ever

Just a warm body with management saying one thing and doing another

Management within the company tell you what you want to hear and preach about how much they care for their employees but when it comes down to it all that matters is the bottom line.

NIghtmare! Management is HORRIBLE!

Everyone lives in fear. No one has your back, ever. People take credit for your work and management tracks your every move. Some people (professionals) are required to report on every 15 minutes of work they do, everyday! The first opportunity that comes along, you get thrown under the bus! Co-workers are encouraged to report on other workers. It's pathetic!
