Sr. Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 27 June 2018
Everyone lives in fear. No one has your back, ever. People take credit for your work and management tracks your every move. Some people (professionals) are required to report on every 15 minutes of work they do, everyday! The first opportunity that comes along, you get thrown under the bus! Co-workers are encouraged to report on other workers. It's pathetic!

Working for the City of Burnaby has been a fun challenge for me. There are a variety of different departments and facilities you can work at depending on what you are looking for. The energy is very fast paced at the facility I work at and my coworkers are very enjoyable to work with.

A typical day is never the same. There is a lot of data entry, dealing with the public, answering phone calls, registering and unregistered from programs, making sure customers and turn over is flowing properly. Tending to medical emergencies if there are any.
Building Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 19 January 2017
Burnaby was a great employer but after 26 years I needed a rest. There was many problems between employees and management about working conditions. As an employer in general I had no complaints the pay was great with full benefits, union protection, I enjoyed my time with the city.
Lifeguard/ Instructor (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 9 December 2012
Working as a lifeguard for the City of Burnaby has been a good experience overall. Typically I do safety checks, stock first aid, manage other lifeguards, guard the patrons, deal with first aid emergencies, teach fitness and swimming and more. The hardest part of the job is staying alert during long guarding shifts. The most enjoyable part for me is teaching fitness.
