Good work for students

I worked for the pool, it's a great job if you're in school or if you want some extra hours and have another job. It isn't that great if you do it full time as advancement and management isn't as optimized as other city pools (from what I know at-least). Overall, the pay is good and it's pretty chill as long as you show up and are decent.

Pros

Relaxed culture

Cons

Management/supervision not optimized

It was fun landscaping, cutting trees and such.

I landscaped with my school, once a week. I learned a lot of things. We cut the trees, cleaned the parks, raked the leaves. it was a great experience.

Casual, fun workplace

Good place to work especially during high school and university. I would highly recommend lifeguarding for Abbotsford as a temporary job, however there is little to no room for advancement.
