Management in customer service are bullies
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON19 October 2016
Disgusting place to work. Management in customer service tried to get staff to rat each other out. Management became bullies towards the staff and expected part time staff to be available for full time hours but would not schedule staff for more than 10-15 hours a week. Management are inconsiderate to staff who need accommodations and try to pin staff against one another. If you want a decent and respectable place to work I would look elsewhere, ajax is not the place for it
Cons
Management bullying

Life as a Lifeguard/Swimming Instructor
Lifeguard/Swimming Instructor (Current Employee) –  Ajax, ON12 August 2012
I've work for the Town of Ajax for 7 years and have loved it since the day I started! A typical day of work would be instructing swimming lessons for 2-3 hours and then guarding a public swim for another 2-3 hours. I have learned a lot of working for the town, I have gained valuable teamwork skills as well as teaching experience and experience in customer service.
