Aquatic Deck Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON15 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, ON10 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.
