Good place to work.

Great pay and benifits. Work is 5 days per week with two days off together. Split shifts for junior drivers. Straight shifts for senior drivers. Typical shifts Monday to Friday 6:AM to 6:PM with 3 to 4 hours off mid day. Some work on weekends and on statutory holidays. Great management team. Supervisors are very helpful. Training is provided and is very good.Great paid holiday time available after one year of employment. More than you would expect.

Points positifs

Free anual bus pass for one plus a spouse.

Points négatifs

Split shifts, weekend work, working on statutory holidays.

Great Work with unfair pay

While the job I held was fairly easy, I did come to some issues with my pay. When I was hired, I was payed 3 dollars above minimum wage but as min wage grew, my pay did not. Newly hired workers were payed more than I was even after a year and a half of work and due to the casual position, I did not gain any seniority that could help me with my pay issues. This is not the reason I left the position

Not a good place to work

my experience with this employer was the worst I have had in my 25 years in the health and fitness industry. Management was unsupportive and unclear about expectations. Departments don’t communicate and the culture was not healthy.

Management does what they can for up grading skills..

But when hired you are called a temp. And can be fired at anytime with no reason . Till a permanent position comes up. And you have to apply. But if you had shaded previous information about your private life they use it as not to hire you as a full time employee. As usual the ones that is late all the time get moved up to better paying position. You need to be a yes person. Do not share when you are experiencing any kind of abuses. Even raciusm.

Points positifs

On an cocassion get breakie paid for

Points négatifs

The forman say your luck today. Our supervisor got us a meal.

Wish i was still there.

I was brought on in Nov right before the start of the lay off and snow season worked right through the winter with no shortage of hours. Pretty good for just getting on. Worked right up until I had some non work related issues arise that required all of my attention. My foreman, crew, supervisor and management supported and accommodated me for as long as they could before it was agreed that we should part ways for the time being. Wish I was still there loved it.

Points positifs

Great staff. Good Environment, support from the top (work/non work related)

Points négatifs

The commute from Richmond.

Glad I got hired, more glad I left

A disorganized Maintenance Department. It leads to a lot of frustrations in trying to get the job done. Not great moral. Might be due to the high turn over of Mechanics. There's no advancement or lateral movement in this organization. I'm really glad I left. The lustre wears off pretty quickly. And, even with the good Holidays it really doesn't make up for the short comings.

Points positifs

6 weeks Vacation

Points négatifs

Toxic work environment

Great community centre for children to learn gymnastics

Working here includes teaching children from ages 6 months to 17 years. Culture is amazing - everyone is friendly and work hard. I've developed stronger verbal and written communication skills through this job, communicating with parents, kids, and coworkers.

Good group of coworkers, too much bureaucracy

Very large gap in communication between different departments and levels of management. Policy is very top down and some decisions are made too rash or often too slow. Management varied and often would make new policies to fit their decisions.

Initially a good place to work but the lustre wore off.

Worked there for a few years and found that middle management did not get proper support from upper management when union issues arose. It was difficult for management to operate as from all appearances the unions run the place. I believe it all comes from the top and since then have moved on to a couple of other organizations (local government as well) and found them to be more highly functioning than this organization. As well, salaries are kept lower so when you work here you are always job shopping. It's just the way it is. All said, I worked with some great people and got a few work plan issues completed. Those great people have also moved on and are happier elsewhere.

Points positifs

Great scenery on the waterfront, some nice and caring co-workers

Points négatifs

Poor morale in general, poor salary and benefits, union members made more money than managers, poor support for managers from above, the unions run the show and managers are just there for appearance sake

Horrible Experience...

No communication, way below average training and horrible management. I would never recommend working there and it's no wonder people complain about City workers because of what i said above. Management are a bunch of overpaid and useless people who take our hard earned tax's for granted.

Points positifs

None

Points négatifs

So many things to list

Great job to have as a second income

The layers of bureaucracy make it difficult to be authentic at your job
