Fun and Fulfilling

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I truly enjoyed my time here. When I started, the staff were mostly people around my age - they were all kind and invested in the programs. Toward the end, they started hiring staff that was very young and had very little experience working with people with disabilities, which was demanding for them and made the workload heavier for staff who knew what they were doing. Some staff could get away with doing the bare minimum but those who were there to do good always did. Management was extremely understanding and would work with you. They were definitely invested in running good programs and ensuring fun and safety for everyone.

Great projects but challenging leadership

Amazing potential for great projects in a very fast growing municipality. The big challenge is trying to get anything done with the constant reorganizations, hiring and firing of leadership staff.

Great place to work

City of Brampton is a great place to work. The work-life balance is good. Job security is great. You don't need to worry about it as long as you do your work. The problem is with the salary of unionized positions. The salary is not good and 2% increase per year is nothing. The turnover in the City overall is a lot, just because of the salary. People move to the City of Toronto because of higher pay.

Toxic work environment, corrupt and out of control. Not a positive work environment and a revolving door for upper management if they don't abide by the Mayors orders.

Amazing place to work

They provide lots of training and give you lots of opportunities to learn how to use different machines. Management was always willing to help. Get to spend your summer days outside all day!

Nice enviorment

The city has strong integrity. However I heard 311 service Brampton has toxic environment in terms of employees. I didn't work there, but my colleagues said me that.

A great place to work

Customer service department is pretty competitive but à great way to get your foot in the door for other departments Within the city of Brampton. Within the customer service department, you get opportunities to become full time from part time. You learn all about the different business partners and get trained on different channels including phones, emails and dispatch. Management is pretty good at promoting from within and also good at communicating with its employees. Overall a pretty good place to work because of the opportunities you're presented with.


Promote from within, endless job opportunities


Alot of work, spend all day on phones

The workload is heavy and the jobs are underpaid. Challenging and stressful environment, lack of perks, and no good insurance coverages when talking about benefits

Great place to begin working

You learn many skills other that aquatic safety and first aid, but also gain experience working as a team, customer service, and working with all kinds of people. You also have opportunity to expand to higher roles from a young age, which can be scary, but also gives you further experience for future jobs. Working with the city also creates opportunities to branch out into different recreational programs such as camps, preschool, skate, aquatics, etc.

Great Place To Work

This was one of my favourite jobs, was there for about 3 years. Everyone is super friendly, management is kind and the job itself was pretty easy. There’s room to develop and grow in the company which is another great aspect

Okay if you want a secure job

Good place to work if you just want a secure job and pension and benefits but as an ap clerk I never had time for lunch/breaks I could take it but I risked not getting my work done... supervisor doesnt know whats going on and listens to team lead who is also clueless about the job or has 20 year old knowledge thats irrelevant...


Free food, other small benefits for gym memberships etc.


No breaks most days

Great place to work as a lifeguard/instructor

I'd recommend this job to students who want to work during the summer and/or all year round because you can work as little as one 3-hour shift per week or as much as 40+ hours. The environment is very team-oriented, at times there will be 7-8 guards all at once. You will meet lots of good people and make friends. The management is understanding and they run seasonal trainings to keep everyone's lifeguard and instructing skills to their standard.


Flexible hours


When teaching for 3 hours straight in the pool, chlorine can make your eyes burn.

Fun and Exciting Worksplace at the Pool

Working as a lifeguard can be a rewarding and challenging experience. You are responsible for the safety of the patrons at the pool or beach, which requires a great deal of attention, focus and quick thinking. You must be able to recognize and respond to emergencies in a calm and efficient manner. Physical fitness is also important as lifeguards are expected to be able to swim and perform rescues if necessary.


Good Pay, Lenient Hours


Short Sessions, Fast-Paced
