Got a good variety of work to do. Upper management was respectful and never felt overbearing. Lots of extra activities and initiatives provided by weekly employee e-mail newsletter. Good student support structure.
The staff were a cohesive group. The structure as a part time immunization nurse worked well. The autonomy was appreciated. The scheduling coordinator was very good at her job and tried to keep everyone’s needs in mind. I was surprised to see 2 managers let go in my time there.
As a coop student, I learnt a lot and enjoyed my time at York Region.
The environment is calm and quiet
Everyone was nice and kind. They were always ready to help and you'll always be greeted with a smile
The regional municipality of york provided great benefits that were 100% paid for by the organization; which these days is unheard of. It is a unionized environment (other then HR/management) so advancements can be few and far between and working between management and the unionized staff can be a difficult process.
Very well paid jobs and movement up the salary grid through a dedicated performance review process (bonuses for non-union staff
Terrible work environment. They like to keep everyone bubble wrapped. They don’t want anyone thinking for themselves or having an opinion. Too many managers and supervisors for so few workers. Management out of touch with operations side of things. No room for advancement. No permanent positions. Contract to contract. Do not waste your time.
