Can be a fun place to work. For the most part the co-workers are easy to get a long with. As a security guard. Get to see the insides of a few historic buildings, and learn about them. Which is interesting. But when starting off as a casual/part time worker. There is very little chance to move into a full time position. The only way to get a full time position, is to be related to some one in management. Or good friends, with supervisors. Management, is aware of this but just ignores it. As they do with most issues that happen with the employees.
I have worked for 2 different deptartments within the government I do enjoy my position with family services however did not enjoy my position with Sheriff's as much mostly because of the work schedule.
Executive Assistant to MLA (Former Employee) – Winnipeg Manitoba – 4 February 2016
As Executive Assistant to an MLA I was tasked with the daily operation of both offices (legislature and Fisher Branch). This included mail collections, fielding and screening calls, setting appointments, office stock, paying bills/invoices and taking minutes in meetings among many other tasks to numerous to list. I had no co workers and was basically a lone wolf. I enjoyed this position and if a position as an Executive Assistant was to come up again in either the private or government sector I would not hesitate to apply for it.
I enjoyed working with the Province of Manitoba for approximately 21 years. I started as an Institutional Supervisor, worked my way up to a Behavioural Counsellor and then moved to the financial end of my department learning the financial program that the Province of Manitoba uses to this day. In the end was able to train new staff in the program. I didn't find any of the jobs hard once I got used to it. As an institutional supervisor I worked the night shift and then as a behavioural counsellor I worked the evening shift and once these programs were closed by the government I worked the dayshift.
