Oakville transit
transit employee (Former Employee), transitNovember 15, 2012
Pros: new building
Cons: shift work, weekends below average pay
New building with old school out of touch managers. Average pay decent benefits would be great if they were able to clean up the managerial mess they have. They have a god mentality and think they can treat there subordinates bad. Close but most likely years away from becoming a top notch employer when the upper management finally gets fired or retires.

Exciting, innovative municipality
Planning Intern (Former Employee), Oakville, ONNovember 13, 2012
Pros: culture that wants and demands innovative and progressive ideas
I mostly carried out assigned independent research tasks.

My research helped me develop my understanding of key techniques and strategies in my profession.

Supervisor is very friendly, gentle and warm. City leaders champion innovative and progressive ideas.

Despite their workload, Co-workers are more than happy to engage and educate me on their work – more... and profession.

Hardest Part - Leaving. (co-op job)

Enjoyable Part - Being in an organization committed to progressive innovative public service. – less
