Just what the example says, fun and productive and we do have a ping-pong table.
Equipment Operator, labourer (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 8 January 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.
Custodian/Maintenance (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 5 May 2017
The hardest part of working for the City of Saskatoon was cleaning the pool with the vaccumn. Arrived at work, empty the garbage, added chemicals to pool filter, janitorial work, event set up and clean up. The most enjoyable part of the job was working and meeting with new people. Managment was always available whenever I had a question or concern.

Clerk (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 5 September 2016
The desire to ensure the customer is always right above and beyond established policies and procedures creates a stressful work environment. The corporation as a whole also tends to be reactive instead of proactive
Wage allows me to earn a decent living. My immediate supervisor is fantastic

Engineering Technician (Surveyor) (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 16 November 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.
