Amdministrative Support 2 (Contract Position) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 October 2013
You need to be well organized and be able to deal with stress. Co-workers are well trained and are willing to train and help new staff. Hard part of the job is to stay on track of dead lines. Most enjoyable part of the job after knowing what tasks are to be done, is to work independently. The hardest part of the job was to get full time work. I was wanting to stay in the postion that I had at the Albert Law Courts, but I was only hired on a contract basis.

Technologist (Former Employee) – Lethbridge,Ab – 7 April 2016
You are just a disposable number. Unless you know how to suck up, you are NOTHING!!! You can work your butt off and it means NOTHING!! Management preaches accountability, respect, integrity but Don't practise what they preach. No matter how much dedication and loyalty you show, it means nothing unless you suck up to the right people. A lot of low life backstabbers employed by the GoA. Useless welfare cases are kept on. Show more ambition than management and youre gone, first lame excuse they can find. Any other company tries to find their employees another position before laying people off. GoA turns you out the door and then comes up with a feeble effort and lame excuses to find you another position.
Decent benefits as in time off. Oodles of excuses available to get paid time off.
Excellent place to work; great flexibility and valuable resources

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 January 2017
A typical work day would be going through emails to see if there are any Action Requests that need to be dealt with. After all that is handled, work through the share point system. Other administrative tasks such as scans, spreadsheets, filing, mail, etc..I learned how to deal with time management and multitasking in a daily basis. My coworkers are amazing and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job is the abundance amount of work we get it and trying to meet deadlines. The most enjoyable would be the staff here.
Grounds Maintenance - Supervisor (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 March 2017
It really varies from department to department. Most work colleagues I've spoken to like their job but not their bosses, and upper management. They do not treat the lower minions with the respect that they need and should have. This comes from employees that have worked here from 50 to 1st year.
