Building service worker (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC21 November 2012
I worked afternoons from 5.00 pm till 11.30 pm there were 4 building service employees each with his/her own specific area at City Hall, while we would be given occasional instructions as to which areas were to be targeted we were generally left to concentrate on what we considered needed to be done. I was originally posted at the leisure facility as a pool services operator, where I progressed to obtain my pool services certificates, regulating water quality for the leisure pools and spas. I am unable to point out any aspects of my employment of which I found in any way unpleasant, I suppose it comes down to how well one gets along with co-workers and management. Knowing that you had some input into the conditions in which you work was one of the most satisfying points about working for the City of Coquitlam, this fact and the really special people with whom I was associated with made my employment there one of the most enjoyable working experiences...

- Management should provide encouragement, and recognition when hard work is displayed by employees. As well as promote social cohesiveness to benefit teamwork.
Pros
Extended break time when needed

Not allowing a flexible work scope. In other words, avoid pigenholing.

Didn't really hire me for the position I was actually qualified for
Groundskeeper II (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC21 August 2017
Management leaves something to be desired. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Management is very klicky, if they like you that's great if not, your in trouble, doesn't matter how hard you work. Be a machine and do as they ask and for goodness sake, don't ask questions or make waves....your outta there. Union doesn't stand behind you either.....they are in the klicky management group.
Pros
wages are excellent
Cons
management sucks
