Facility Youth Worker/ Case Manager (NBYC) (Current Employee) –  North Battleford, SK19 December 2012
I enjoyed the wage and benefits as well as the chance of advancement. Within a year of working there i advanced from a level 5 to an 8. A typical day at work would be hanging out with the residents. Helping them with supper, having a group meeting, escorting them to activities. I learned a lot about casework. Management was very understanding. I enjoyed everyone i worked with. The hardest part of the job was trying to calm a resident down but it was also the most enjoyable part.

Forest Service lacks competent management
Forest Service (Current Employee) –  Prince Albert, SK15 February 2018
The work place is good in Prince Albert as far as the building and parking goes. The staff are good to work with overall, however there is a real problem with egos, especially in management. There is a high number of staff who come from other provinces and do not fully understand SK attitudes, and very poorly understand the Indigenous people and their values. Managers have made jokes about how to get around the Duty to Consult process, saying "... they wouldn't even notice". Good employees are regularly "managed out" of the job, and so the agency loses intelligent, qualified people - again, due to management egos.
The staff are friendly and it is easy to have an open conversation with co-workers. Managers are less open, and regularly show favoritism, putting high pressure and unrealistic expectations on staff they do not like. There is a lot of training for staff, which is nice for employees; however the training management receives seems to teach them how to avoid responsibility and how to harass without meeting the legal definition.
More of a Ministry of Environment issue, but they selected a Director who has zero education or background in Natural Resources, instead chose an accountant to care for the public's forests in SK.
Pros
Good parking. Nice building.
Cons
Unqualified management. Un-safe to leave the property because of criminals.

It was fun but it had its down side
Park Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Chitek Lake, SK1 February 2018
It was an okay job, the good thing was that it paid well. The management wasn't the best but the other co-workers we great. They made going to work in the morning very enjoyable.
