Parks Worker in Barrie, ON
on 4 January 2022
Good if you are full time
Contract workers do all the work , no job security. Of you are full time it is great. Don't see more full time positions being added, they don't have to pay as much and benefits contact workers.
Customer Service in Barrie, ON

Worst job I have ever had
You Never no when or where you are working, schedule changes constantly so you can’t plan anything because one day you will be off but the next day it could change.Part timers get all the grunt work and full timers lap up the gravy. You work all the holidays and all the weekends.

Great place to work.
Great place to work. Team environment encouraged and supported. Management respects staff and provides a comfortable workplace. Salaries and benefits are comparable to other municipalities.
Executive Assistant in City Hall
on 30 March 2022
Great inclusive workplace with lots of training/job opportunities.
I worked at the City for over 35 years and advanced several times to reach my career goals. The City paid for me to attend college part-time for 5 years until I received my degree. The staff are great and the benefits/pay are very competitive. Amazing place to work!!
Manager of Purchasing in Barrie, ON
on 12 January 2022
Culture of individual advancement, not a team environment and lots of Managers and Directors but no leaders.Sky is falling attitude, senior leaders support poor planning.No accountability, always someone else’s fault. I appropriate sole sourcing, resulting in paying premiums and poor vendor performance.
