Summer Student Employee (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON17 July 2013
The City of Hamilton promoting an environment of equal opportunity and respect, giving everyone a decent wage. The hardest part of working for the city was dealing with the bureaucracy. You were given your daily/weekly tasks and once completely you were stuck in limbo since all extra activities would first need to be either reviewed and approved by the supervisors or superintendent.
Pros
working hours (7am-3pm)
Cons
Stigma
