Aquatic Deck Supervisor (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 May 2017
No room for advancement in my department (aquatics). The city only hires management from external sources. Although I have been working with the city for 10 years, it will take about another 10-15 to get a full time position with benefits and salary.

Operations - Part Time (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 January 2017
I have been working with the City for about 5 years and I love my job. I have learned so much about customer service and about how to be the best employee I can be in whatever position I am working. I have worked in many areas in recreation, and have learned so much about myself and have been able to train and shape other employees to do well in what they do and to make the difference. There is also many areas to expand on and to advance in.
Operator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 6 November 2016
Place full of nepotism. Work hard and you wont get noticed. The only way to get a fulltime job is if you rub elbows with someone higher up in management or with someone in HR. They always have someone lined up already even though you have all the skills and experience if your trying to get fulltime. I tried for 14 years and they could care less. Many operators could care less about thier work and are usually grumpy and horrible to work with once they are Ft trust me. The management only care about themselves and not thier employees and wont give other people the time of day to listen to or someones opinion. Its all smiles on top but when you get in if your lucky enough is lousy and you just feel like transfering to another building if your even able to. Over all if your lucky to get a Ft job your set but in all reality is sucks the life right out of you. Ive seen it and experienced it.
the money and benefits
higher management and corruption within hiring process
Administrative Clerk (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 24 October 2016
In need of business modernisation since incorporation in the 1970's from my perspective. Use of employment agencies to fill temp employment needs and hard to get permanent positions. Average staff member, very professional, well-bred and intelligent. Mayor and Council as well.
Therefore it's a well-run ship compared to other municipalities. This is very good for a top-class City like Mississauga, which is increasingly growing and developing. Time now to modernise business operations to meet current and future development.
Turf Crew (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 September 2016
Working at parks was a terrific experience. it was definitely different from anything else ive done. working outdoors everyday, meeting new people and working with plant and animal life really appealed to me. Best of all were the employees i had the pleasure of working with. My co workers were what made it an even more memorable position.
