Good work for students

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

Respective fun environment easy-going

Doing everything from Landscaping, tree planting, ground keeping, heavy vehicle operating, removal of shrubbery and debris such as garbage and Landscaping occasionally rebuild fencing

Pros

Paid lunches, paid fuel, paid travel time, by the hour you're always making money when you're on the road.

Cons

Bad weather conditions sometimes

Heavy at the top.

If you are not liked by mgmt you will not excel or get any future training even if you are good at your job. it seems that people get hired because they may know someone. Managers have been known to scout out their own employees that they want. Not an equitable employer. Saw a post where a pro was Birthday lunches? Not sure who you worked for but thats news to me. 35 hour work weeks in Administration and 40 hrs at the works yard.

Pros

None

Cons

Major politics, inexperienced managers, terrible benefits and union is almost extinct.
