Good place to work
Short term (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON16 décembre 2018
This was a good place to work, didn't have a career path that I was interested in. I wanted to move on to something more challenging in a field I had more interest in.

Fun, consistent job with a great team
Outdoor Student Maintenance (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON23 mai 2018
My experience at the City of Waterloo working under the Waterloo Park branch as an Outdoor Student Maintenance worker has been one of the best work experiences I have ever had. The team there is thoughtful, caring and hardworking. The level of teamwork and communal care and effort made this place very welcoming.

Despite being a student worker I was treated with respect. I never felt that I was less than my other exployees and throughout the years working there I was given the opportunity to learn new skills and develop as a person. I would highly recommend working here to anyone. Working outdoors is always a plus as you get to enjoy summer to the fullest.
Points positifs
Consistent hours, great team members, independence

Recreation employees are worked to the bone for little pay and barely any hours
PFA (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON5 mars 2018
Mid and upper management expect the employees to schedule themselves and deal with those issues themselves...management rules with an iron fist and will not take feedback well; they would rather find a way to get rid of someone who is willing to speak up and out against management then they would to learn how to change/adapt through cooperation, collaboration, mentorships, etc. Oh and don't ever raise any issues with HR as they will protect their more invested employees at all costs...so no matter what management does or does not do, they will always be protected over you as a front line employee doing all the hard work within the corporation. Also, do not expect to make a lot of money at this corporation nor expect to move up the ladder (when they have done re-organizations of the rec department no movement actually happened as literally it was just a name change for some supervisors, but no front line employees got to move up the ladder). *even when they were supposed to be required to give hours to employees in the summer, the organization and it's management would refuse to schedule employees so it was a constant battle - how can any recreational facility be down hours during the summer months? it makes no sense but because all management goes on holidays in the summer, most if not all facilities end up completely empty so they will not staff you. it's sad that the corporation in the rec department is not run as a business as they depend on tax payer $$$ to save their bums.
Points positifs
none
Points négatifs
low pay, ridiculous hours (weekends/evenings but expected to be available 24/7 & 365), nasty management who only cares about themselves, HR will not support you, you will be forced to do things that the unionized employees refuse to do, etc

Rewarding, dynamic public service work environment
Director, Human Resources (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON1 mars 2018
This challenging and rewarding job in a dynamic human resources department in a highly collaborative work environment involved working with professional and committed people. Enjoyed the opportunity to build a new human resources team with management expertise in the functional areas. The opportunity to create new programs such as performance appraisal, employee recognition and competency models moved the organization forward by holding people accountable and rewarding good performance and behaviour. A highly unionized work environment was demanding of staff and management.
Points positifs
Great benefits and working conditions
Points négatifs
High workload for small HR team

Lifeguarding
Instructor / Lifeguard (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON19 juin 2017
Great place to work, people are fantastic and partrons friendly. Pay is very low for lifeguarding, though you can pick your hours and it fits perfectly around school. Management is a bit stuck in their ways, but they have been improving in the past few years and accepting feedback. The place has come a long way, but still could be better.
Points positifs
flexible set hours, amazing co-workers
Points négatifs
management can be micromanagerial / redundant

Interesting work experience with young children
Summer Camp Volunteer (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON20 juin 2016
Everyday was a new experience with a new activity that we would run. I learned how to collaborate and interact with fellow co-workers. The managers were all very nice and they were very good at explaining what we had to do. All co-workers were extremely helpful and showed me the ropes and were very good at communicating. The hardest part of this job was keeping the kids entertained and keeping them focused. The most enjoyable part of the job was making the kids smile and organizing activities that kept them entertained.
Points positifs

Active and welcoming place to work.
Swimming Instructor and Lifeguard (Employé actuel) –  Waterloo, ON14 janvier 2016
Each day begins with either a swimming lesson or guarding position. Class sizes range from one student for privates to eight students for higher levels. Co-workers are very friendly and easy to get along with. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching students become stronger swimmers overtime. The hardest is solving problems between patrons during public swims.
