Engineering Technician (Surveyor) (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – November 16, 2015
Went out with surveyors to various contract sites around the city to ensure contractors were up to engineering standards. Mostly road-work, ensuring that sewer and storm pipes were put in place properly, but dealt with land development a little too. Well-organized, fun and casual workplace among the surveyors.

Building and Groounds (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – November 13, 2015
I enjoy my current position at the city, the kinship I have with coworker and supervisor makes my job easier and it is a great place to work. The work that I do maintaining the water treatment is different on a daily bases as it could be as easy as emptying out the truck to working on the pump system. I enjoy working for the city due to the advancement and training, it is just the salary.
Clerk Steno - 8 (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – July 3, 2015
I love my job and all the great people I work with. However, I was hired for a Temp Position for 3 months. I have been extended month by month with no sense of security. I have been told by many (including my Supervisor that I'm doing a great job. She said that she would love to keep me, if she could. I have been applying for every position that I think relates to my experience. I would really like to continue my employment here with The City of Saskatoon, I'm just feeling discouraged by the seniority, and hiring policies.
Great place to work, though policies can get out of hand at times.
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – December 10, 2014
I really enjoyed my supervisors and co-workers. I had a lot of fun with them. Having the responsibility to be professional took its toll at times, as patrons expected different responses as I was inclined to give. Sometimes I did not receive adequate information on how to deal with certain situations, but in these times I had a respectful supervisor to aid me. All in all, a great work experience.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – November 20, 2014
It was a valuable experience as an intern student to work with the city. Everyone at work was friendly and always willing to help or point me toward the right direction for it. The work environment and culture were great with some flexibility. It was an enjoyable and eye opening experience to talked to some of the senior engineers and learned from their experience.

Support Service Manager (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – March 21, 2014
City of Saskatoon allowed for me to build my skills in management to better further myself. My days varied - no day was the same with what was needed to be done. The management was not always clear as to what they wanted from their team. Co-workers were great, often stressed and overworked. The hardest part of the job was the management The most enjoyable part were the co-workers.
I never had any problem going to work.I liked my job.

Equipment Operator, labourer (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – January 8, 2013
A typical day at work for the city of Saskatoon starts at 7 am and ends at 4:04 pm. It starts off with a tool box meeting and orders given out on what our duties are for the day. We are usually assigned with partners to work with and the jobs could be in any part of the city with whatever machine we may be alotted. Every day is a learning experience for example, learning how to use machinery in a landscaping operation. As for management, they are very good and knowledgable. They are always on hand if we need assistance or are in need of anything. All the co-workers get along and if anything did come up the supervisors and their higher-ups are on it right away.The hardest part of the job- well their is no hard part as long as you know what you are doing and enjoy it. I enjoy operating.
