I have been working for the City of Brampton in the Rec and Culture division for the past 4 years.
-Experience (boot camps, personal training)
-Members are great
-Easy to take time off and/or find coverage if needed
- Poor Pay
-PAY FREEZE - I haven't received a cent increase, ever
-Hour cap; part-timers get capped at 24 hrs/week
- Part-timers are on seasonal contracts = 0 job security
- WHO you know will get you further than WHAT you know, or how long you've been working for the city
- They pay for NOTHING, no money given for continuing education or recertifications
- Seem like the "big bosses" don't see the big picture, nor communicate with "the little guys" who actually run the programs.
Friendly staff and members; great work/life balance
Pay, pay freeze, capped hours, turnover is high
