Seasonal Golf Assistant in Burnaby, BC
on 3 June 2020
Collaborative Environment
Busyness fluctuates throughout the day, but working collaboratively makes it do-able. I learned to manage time, prioritize tasks, and honed my interpersonal skills.

Workers are stressed and depressed. No work/life balance
My job is stressful. Add to that, working with leaders who are narcissistic sociopaths who bully staff does not help.Covid taught me how well the City of Burnaby really cares, as in DOES NOT, for their employees. The leaders of the City of Burnaby are under the illusion that this is the best place to work, it's not! Their pay is lower than most municipalities, and the HR department is broken. In fact most departments there are broken. The place needs a full overhaul and new leadership who are actually listening to the employees and not the bullcr@p from middle managers who don't listen or care about their staff, it's very discouraging.I wouldn't recommend working here to my worst enemy. I'm looking forward to quitting as soon as I find a different job! Best part of my day, is driving out of the parking lot and going home.
Labour in Burnaby, BC
on 26 May 2022
Low pay, weak union.
The union has no backbone and the pay is way under the private sector. The management sucks, and doesn't care, probably because they are under paid too. Can't retain any workers and every department is short staffed.
Parks and Recreation Labourer in Burnaby, BC

Great people, good pay for what you do. Union aspect makes advancement tough.
Simultaneously relaxed yet fast paced setting. Kind, personable, and knowledgeable bosses. Really good pay for some of the jobs. Advancement could be tough because of union.
Auxiliary Weight Room Recreation Leader in Burnaby, BC
on 19 January 2022
Because the City of Burnaby is a large municipal organization, every position and department will potentially have its own pros, cons and experiences.
Because everyone in my position begins as an auxiliary worker, it can be difficult obtaining enough hours solely doing this job. Many people work other auxiliary positions within the City (or at other municipalities) to fill this need. Part-time and full-time permanent positions come very rarely and are highly competitive to obtain as the senior staff usually bid their time and are waiting to snatch the opportunity for permanent full-time work when it becomes available. Otherwise, the job duties are pretty standard and managers are good. Cannot complain about the work environment.
