The City of Kingston has been a great place to work, they have
-Good teams

-Good Pay

-Strong Management

-Friendly work culture

-Stable work-life balance

-Lots of opportunity and interesting projects to get involved in


My advice to management would be to continue to have team meetings, be engaged in what staff are doing and remind them of the importance of what they do.

Management engages in bullying and deceitful practices at the long-term care home towards staff. Stretching staff way to thin putting staff and residents' safety at risk. Management effectively conveys lack of regard towards staff. Generally a toxic work atmosphere with high risk of injury and loss of professional licensing. Absolutely not worth the money.

Summer student camps management position. I was given a great deal of freedom to travel between sites, manage staff, and organize responsibilities as I saw fit. Full time staff are friendly and supportive but busy - position requires an independent self-starter

I learned a lot on this job, and the management was generally very good for this position. We had a variety of responsibilities, which kept the job fresh and interesting. You need to be ok with bugs for this specific position.

I really dont understand why city of kingston even hires new part time employees. All they do is lay them off when the city feels the need too.

A part time employee has to go through the same hiring process as a full time employee but has the excitement of waiting to be laid off. The city of kingston is better off waiting for a few of their current full time employees to retire then hire 1 or 2 individuals to replace those positions. Inside of wasting time and tax money on hiring 15 to 20 people then in 4 to 6 months lay 75% of them off. What is the point of that? All this is doing is causing unemployment and wasting money on the hiring process.


Kingston is a great place to find part time employment not full time employment. And honestly the city of kingston needs to cancel the city garbage division and hire a contracted company for it. At least in that sense it would provide full time employment for an extended period of time.
Points positifs
A glimpse at what a full time employee makes
Points négatifs
BEING LET GO

There has never been a more corrupt and crooked HR department in all the world. They give the appearance they are fair and impartial but the truth is : if you don’t have a friend in HR, you have zero chance .
Points positifs
Having a pay cheque
Points négatifs
Terrible management and corrupt HR Department who only hires their friends and relatives

Landscaping/ maintaining parks, was easy if you have landscaping experience but was difficult for other employees that never had experience in that field.

Being employed by the city is one of the worst jobs out there. Good benefits, but atmosphere is poison, HR has absolutely no clue what they are doing, and that’s when you can reach them! Terrible management, no room for advancement, etc. Don’t work there, especially at Rideaucrest! They treat their employees horribly!

The part-time casual basis, temporary employee thing is a scam perpetuated by the HR department. In the initial interview they brag of how you have the great opportunity to work for the City of Kingston and how it’s such an honor to be chosen.

What they don't tell you, even if you ask them outright, is the part-time casual a rip. You have no chance of getting a permanent full time job with the city unless you know the right person or are related to someone inside. The HR people will lead you on to think you will get a full time job, even if you tell them you are quitting a full time job to work for them. It’s still the old school boys club where you get hired only if you have a solid inside person, other than that, all you'll ever be is call-in, casual part time help working maybe 24 hours a week.
Points positifs
Pay, easy work
Points négatifs
Never going to get a full time job

I enjoyed working within a cultural heritage setting, providing support to others also interested in maintaining the heritage of this city. I worked with planners and cultural employees.

Most staff were snobs acting like they were better than contracted staff. Asked down to you most of the time. Absolutely little to no chance of ever getting hired on permanently, unless you know someone, or was really willing to kiss butt and/or brown-nose your way in.

Amazing time working at the summer camps for the city. I loved every moment. The staff, campers, parents, supervisors and coordinators were all amazing to work with and made summer so much better.

Working for the City of Kingston was a pleasure. Management empowers staff by entrusting them with a high degree of responsibility. Working for a small-to-mid sized municipality presents more opportunities to lead dynamic files.
