HEAD LIFEGUARD/INSTRUCTOR (Employé actuel) – Ottawa, ON – 22 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.

Wading Pool Attendant/ Supervisor (Employé actuel) – Ottawa, ON – 8 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.
