Great Learning Experience
Volunteer Work in summer camp (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON4 November 2018
There was much to learn from the camp leaders and much more to learn from the campers. Although I was only a volunteer, I gained some very valuable experiences. The environment was very fun and welcoming. It was very easy to create lasting relationships with coworkers. However, hours were very long as it was a summer day camp.

brampton (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 October 2018
City Government striving to be more agile. It is a very paper based environment. Hiring Managers supportive. It is very slow to change. It requires an overhaul and more streamlined approach. Very dedicated individuals.

Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON13 October 2018
Too many politics and difficult to get the job done with the amount of red tape to go through. By the time you get through the red tape, there is new red tape and you have to start from the beginning.

the city is a political driven entity
Temporary Gardener II (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON27 September 2018
the city is staffed by full timers, part timers on contract, and students in the summer. the city is in management transition so fiscal control is under review and Parks decisions are being decided by individuals not working in a Parks/Gardening/Forestry environment so the decisions are made are not always the best for the department. just one cog in a big machine. election year so who knows what is going to happen in the coming season. on a 6 month contract.
Pros
decent wage 85% of full timers
Cons
15 % less than someone who does the same work
