Great place if you can deal with the darker side of life
Correctional Peace Officer (Employé actuel) –  Alberta6 mai 2019
Great place if you can deal with the darker side of life. Shifts suck though requiring you to work lots of days. Salary pays well and there is always overtime. Management always strives to train and boost individuals.

Excellent management and team atmosphere

Respectful and intelligent management. It can get frustrating because with any government job, progress takes time, but, it is a positive place to work with many opportunities.
Points négatifs
Bureaucracy tends to delay action

Correctional Peace Officer
Corerctional Peace Officer (Employé actuel) –  Fort Saskatchewan, AB21 avril 2019
The bullying and harassment in this place is disgusting. We not only have to deal with inmates belittling us and threatening us, we also have to worry about the staff members lying, spreading rumors, and making our work life so much worse because they are clicky.

The management is completely aware of all of the terrible things that happen and here, they do absolutely nothing about and some of them join in on making fun of people. They do not advance anyone but their friends, and they watch as staff members slowly become different people, some sad, some mean and some just insufferable to around. They do nothing to help because they want their next promotion.

Pay and benefits are good though.

Pyramidal organization management style
CORRECTIONAL PEACE OFFICER 2 (Employé actuel) –  Calgary Remand Centre11 avril 2019
Pyramidal organization with low or none opportunity for growth. Management is very rigid and ignorant. Strong culture of low class and morals people. Toxic environment and promoting of the sink or swim culture.

I was a Helitack member and I enjoyed the work. I worked in Grande Prairie, Alberta. It was an exciting seasonal position. I am hoping to continue working with the Government of Alberta.

Don't waste your time
Maintenance service Worker (Ancien employé) –  Stony Plain, AB26 mars 2019
I now understand why are province is in the state it's in. If any other business in Alberta operated like this they would go under immediately. Poor money management, poor work management, supposed to be cored safety as if. Constantly cut corners in work and in safety. Such a let down very disappointed with government

10 years without Supervisor Training has consequences
Human Resources Consultant (Employé actuel) –  Alberta Avenue, AB25 mars 2019
The Supervisors and Managers are regularly overwhelmed and under prepared for simple issue management. The Human Resources, IT and other department changes means that the support systems are currently under prepared and under staffed as well.
Points négatifs
Lack of training, constant change

Rewarding
Interim Sales Team Trainer (Ancien employé) –  High Prairie, AB20 mars 2019
Working with at risk youth to help them build a brighter future for themselves is heavily rewarding while also being an emotional roller-coaster of ups and downs as you see how terrible a hand these kids have been dealt by life.

Great career opportunities, but inconsistent pay, and some clueless "people leaders"
Manager (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB10 mars 2019
The union positions have good pay and some of them have very high starting pay with only a few step levels meaning you can reach 100-107k within 2-3 years from the bottom of the range. However, in management there has been a general range freeze and also an in-range increase freeze for many years now. It means someone new could be hired in a Program Services role starting at 87k and within 3 year reach the top of their range which can be as high 100-107k. Whereas a junior Manager could start at 80k flat and be at the same pay 4 years later due to freezes.

Union positions can also have significant overtime and limited responsibilities which basically means higher pay and more opportunity for time off and things like working from home, flex days etc.

Opportunities wise, there is no such thing as a "promotion" although there can be acting roles for more senior staff. Permanent promotion means you have to apply to a different position via a competition just like anyone else, and often times they are open competitions open to the public. If you want to apply to a higher level position you simply apply to different competitions, get interviews, and eventually you will be hired somewhere (usually in a different area). It only takes a few years to go from PS level (about 3 years minimum required) to Manager, and then probably another 4-5 years or so as a Specialist (policy units) or Manager to jump to Director. This can be very different in smaller internal policy units versus larger front line service delivery units. After that there is nowhere else to really go other than lateral
  plus... moves or maybe in time to an Executive Director position. Each higher classification only has a marginally higher pay range. The difference is only significant if at the bottom of each range.

The amount of stress, workload, and management really depends on the ministry, division, branch, and unit. They can be very different. And it also depends on the type of work the branch or unit does.

People who claim there are no advancement opportunities are either not applying broadly outside their work areas, or not understanding that true promotions only come from applying to competency based competitions screened by HR (again usually outside the work unit or even ministry). The only exception would be when someone was already acting and then applied to the competition for the position they have already been working in.

Great benefits
Student Funding (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB15 février 2019
Worked in a few departments within Student Funding, great atmosphere, work environment and people. Good benefits but hard to move up on the ladder. Some departments had more micromanagement than others.

Productive and fun workplace
Area Wildfire Logistics Coordinator (Employé actuel) –  Slave Lake, AB4 février 2019
Fire season is definitely a highlight if you like working with complex situations, challenges, having to think outside the box, long hours and seasonal employees.


We work hard but we also take time to enjoy the simple things: like getting to know your co-workers, going to AGM's and having team building events.

Fun and productive workplace with friendly co-workers.
Junior Forest Ranger (Ancien employé) –  Grande Prairie, AB8 janvier 2019
Would be glad to work for them again. I was a Junior Forest Ranger during the summer and would love to do it again if i wasn't too old for it. Co-workers were reliable and so were the group leaders.

Easygoing
Census Enumerator (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB29 décembre 2018
It was simple, with managers who care. Overall would work here again but probably win a different capacity, due to a new found dislike of working in customer service.

N/a
Analyst (Program Services 2) (Employé actuel) –  Edmonton, AB28 décembre 2018
I would decline to provide an assessment.

A typical day is concomitant with any office work. There are a variety of skills to be learned. I would decline to provide an opinion on management or the workplace culture. This is too subjective. The hardest part of the job is the inundation of negativity from the Alberta public and what they perceive as a "government employee". The most enjoyable part of the job is public service and the knowledge that you are helping citizens.
