Wading Pool Attendant/ Supervisor
Wading Pool Attendant/ Supervisor (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON8 octobre 2019
A typical day required mandatory cleanliness of the park and the inside of the pool. I learned relationships and boundaries; understanding and accommodating to the needs of the patrons and of my job requirements as well as myself. The job teaches you a lot about people and yourself and is a good experience for teens who need a first time job. The security of the job is also a good thing because it takes the stress away from having to find a new job every year. The people you work with as well, help you build relationships and partnerships through and with people in the City of Ottawa.

great employer
Bus Operator (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON25 septembre 2019
working at OC Transpo is a great place to work. You meet so many people on a daily basis if you are interested in working in a customer service style environment. Working environment is great. you get to choose your schedule to work around your personal / social life.

Fun workplace
Many roles (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON24 septembre 2019
I worked many different jobs with the City, but I can honestly say, it was always fun coming into work. Even if you knew no one on your shift, everyone was friendly and my management team was always so accommodating, friendly and understanding.

The city of ottawas transit sector is a great place to work, flexible hours and great pay as well as benifits! However with the new changes introducing the LRT, they are laying off hundreds of operators that could be of more benifit to the company then the ones who are soon to be retiring.

Program Administrator (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON16 septembre 2019
can be a fun company to work for if you're a makeup lover. Pay is a little bit higher than its competitors in the Makeup Retail Industry and there's always an opportunity to network and meet different people. As permanent artist both part time and full time, you get gifts and perks --lots of free makeup (gratis) from the company, as well as a %60 discount on product purchase. Keep in mind that perks ar

Crew Leader (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON3 septembre 2019
Worked at the City of Ottawa for approximately 30 years and as such there were good times and bad. Over the years I held various positions including ward clerk and equipment trainer, the latter of which I enjoyed greatly.

Risk Adverse Indecisive Management
Program and Project Management Officer (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON1 septembre 2019
One senior colleague put it as the "golden handcuffs". If you are in operations, it is a reasonable steady pace employment with good work life balance. If you are in any management support role, it's a place of dead space, frustratingly ineffective. There is still a lot of 50's style management dinosaurs around in some departments and career advancement rely highly on who you know and not so much on ability. Job competitions are a sham, the successful candidate are often predetermined, the interviews are just going through the motions to legitimize the award.
Points positifs
Steady hours.
Points négatifs
Accomplish very little.

Nice Perks, Awful Management , Awful training
Finance Specialist (Ancien employé) –  100 contellation1 juillet 2019
The City of Ottawa has many perks and overall is a great employer. However, the officer culture was quite toxic and I was ostracized by management. As a temp employee you have zero job security despite paying union dues, and it can take 2 years to get permanency. Before that time you can be terminated for any and no reason with no grievance process, again paying union dues.

Training was awful and incredibly short, however, my manager gave no leeway in terms of mistakes. My manager targeted me and my employment was doomed. Terrible experience that has left me considering moving from Ottawa so i dont have to contribute to the City.

Phone aspect of the job was awful and involved being a human punching bag for the City's inflexible and expensive policies.
Points positifs
overtime, good salary, nice perks (compressed work day, 1.5 hours break)
Points négatifs
awful managers, awful training, little job security until you are permanent

Fun workplace with increased hourly wage
Hazardous waste worker (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON29 juin 2019
Great place to work as it was fun, paid well, and was perfect for students since the events occurred on the weekends. The work involved removing waste from customers cars and placing it at the appropriate table where other workers would dispose of it.
Points positifs
Straight forward work
Points négatifs
Long and early hours

Small but creative/innovative team.
Business Analyst (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa City Hall25 juin 2019
Strong high-level board of directors including: Ottawa Police, Ottawa Community Housing, United Way, City Councillors etc. Small staff team focused on creating and enhancing strategic partnerships to impact community safety. Little to no room for advancement.

"Safe" Job
HEAD LIFEGUARD/INSTRUCTOR (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON22 mai 2019
I thoroughly enjoy working for the City of Ottawa. However, there are some considerations:
- It's a safe job, therefore many employees are incredibly lazy
- Management must trudge through a mountain of red tape to change anything.
- Don't have hopes of changing much or being appropriately recognized for going the extra mile.

With the union, the City does take care of its employees:
- Great counselling resources
- Adequate (sometimes slow-to-respond) compensation.
- Benefits
- Seniority system that rewards tenure and experience
- Protected and limited liability.

It takes a special personality type to enjoy a long-term career with the City. If you are ambitious and want a competitive career, look to the private sector. However, if you want a clear-cut, safe, protected, and transparent job, the City is perfect for you.
Points positifs
Compensation, Resources, Benefits, Time off
Points négatifs
Lazy staff, Red Tape, Cheap, Slow, Socially agonizaing

Unqualified and Incompetent Managers
Bus Operator (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON16 mai 2019
It used to be a fantastic place to work, however, the management has all changed. Old managers were forced to retire or transferred out to make room for new management. This has changed the environment and moral greatly. They have continued to hire unqualified drivers and blame them even though it is a lack of training and support. I feel bad for new recruits. As a senior driver, the work shifts have worsened since I started. No time for family. No longer encourages and supports career advancement. Benefits are superb. Salary is superb.

Transit Operator (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON9 mai 2019
The job is a good job. I prefer a position where I use my head more as opposed to just a daily routine. Although there are days where a great deal of problem solving is required. Te salary is good as well as the benifits.
