left this position due to cultural unsafe work environment. I have nothing further to add regarding this. Its a unionized environment so filing a grievance is an option to address any employment issues that arise
UTILITIES COORDINATOR (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 20 août 2019
Culture of workplace hostility. Promotion or career advancement based on lack of ethics and morality, not individual merit. A system of cronyism and nepotism to insulate management from taking any accountability.

Animal Control Officer (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 22 février 2019
They always say they're transparent with their employees but they're not. Toxic environment. They don't like employees who go above and beyond because it makes the rest of them look bad who are only there to put in their pensionable time. That's why it takes forever for the City to get things done. Managers try to rule by fear and not by knowledge.

Exempt Supervisor (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 2 octobre 2018
My 38 years working with the City of Vancouver (COV) provided me with both a Career and Education that allowed me the opportunity for personal growth.
I worked in an environment that allowed me to create a Special Events Group that serviced all events within the Vancouver area. I also was given the opportunity to partnership with my employer and create a Matrix of Sanitation/Street Cleaning/Special Event servicing that has been adopted by all of Metro Vancouver.
Access to many of resources and opportunity
Working within a Municipal government is a slow process when developing new ideas
