Lifeguard/Instructor (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONMay 31, 2013
Pros: good hours and pay
Cons: bad management
great work environment when the management were not hovering over your shoulders, hours were decent but cut throat with all the good hours going to people who have it good with seniority, pay was decent better then flipping burgers, over-all learned a lot but would not recommend any friends or family members to work at the location I did for 8 years, – more... and yes I wanted to quit on several occasions but the money spoke for itself – less

Clarkson Pool
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONOctober 20, 2012
Pros: lifeguard
Cons: dealing with bad bone fractures.
For the year 2000 minimum wage was 6.85 an hour. My starting wage at 16 years old for a lifeguard was 10.28 an hour. Plus I worked with neighbourhood friends. Absolutely great job for any teenager into their early 20's. Great way to save money for post secondary education. Pay rates now have increased significantly in 12 years.

Parks operations (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONOctober 7, 2012
Pros: monday to friday work hours
Cons: extreme heat days
This job offered excellent hours and I got the privilege to work with many great people. I learned a lot about horticulture and how to arrange different types of flowers based on location. The hardest part of the job would be adjusting to the change in weather as we worked outside from the cooler temperatures right into the extreme heat as well as the – more... odd rain day. The ost enjoyable part of my job was working with my coworkers. We all got along so well and I made many friends. – less

Orientate choreographed dances for student youth
Dance Choreographer and Instructor (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONJuly 2, 2012
Pros: good pay rate
Cons: not enough hours
My position as a choreographer is typically out in the field and not at the general office although I do meet with other colleagues at the main office from time to time.

Management is real good with the City. Their very efficient and consistently keep us up to date with relevant information.

Classes are normally conducted with a 10-15 min warm up – more... followed by a step by step instruction for a routine.

I find it a little difficult working with the various ages (one class being teenagers and the other adults ages ranging from 26-45). – less

part time instructor
Learn to Skate Instructor (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONJune 28, 2012
Pros: good pay per hour
Cons: no chance of advancement, toxic work environment
The position I hold at the City of Mississauga considered a "part-time seasonal" position. Therefore hours are very unreliable. This means that your paycheque varies alot.

My boss couldnt care less for her employees, she also loves to play favourites. This in turn means that if you are on her favourite list you get more hours than the staff that are – more... not on her favourite list.

There is absolutley NO chance of advancement.

The only positive aspect is that the per hour pay is good. – less
