Not a family supportive place to work.
Accounts Receivable Data Entry (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BCMarch 9, 2016
I was a temp employee in the finance dept. I had been there for two months, however, I had a daycare situation and I could not come into work due to the daycare closing down, I was in a real predicament being a single parent. I advised work of situation and then management wrote me up a bad review which was sent to Human Resources. To say the least, I was never called again for any temp positions. If you have children, don't apply here as they will not be supportive or understanding.
Pros
Waterfront
Cons
Heavy workload

organizing the annual provincial seniors' games
Office Adminstrator (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BCDecember 1, 2014
Fast paced environment, very demanding, long hours but very rewarding and much fun. Management were great and accommodating. Volunteers were recruited to help and maintaining steady help was difficult but not impossible. Trying to accomplish all duties into one day resulted in long hours because of the pressure to put the games on in time. Once the games were underway and awards given at the end, it was very rewarding to see everything worked out superb.
Pros
beautiful banquet dinners
Cons
lomg hours

One of my favourite annual writing contracts
Freelance writer/photographer for local (Current Employee) –  Kelowna, BCOctober 26, 2014
This is an annual contract I get each Spring to write up the awards show for the Kelowna Civic Awards. I'm given about 10 pages of information on each finalist and have to create a 100 word summary that is entertaining and informative enough that people can sit through listening to all 66 of them without getting bored.
