A diverse workplace with opportunity for training and career growth. The organization is large and has opportunity to move around with in the organization, progressing up a career ladder, moving laterally with in departments, or working in multiple departments.
Depending on your supervisor, they all play favorites. None of the union collective agreements are followed. New friends of management are hired and given hours instead of offering them to existing employees. Hour can be cut at any time. standard breaks are non existent. Overtime is carried over and added to other days, so you don't get time and a half, and the supervisor looks good for not having staff work overtime.
Great friendly atmosphere, shifts are typically 4-5hrs which are great for students. Typical shifts are repetitive and usually very straight forward which also makes it a great option for a first job.

Got injured permanently after countless efforts to try to refuse unsafe work. I was off for over a year with barely any contact with the employer. Absolutely no effort for accomadations for permanently injured workers. I was working fulltime as a auxiliary mon-fri prior to injury. All hr could come up with over a year later was a on call position with a pay cut. Also the union offers barely any support and is most likely in bed with management. Total shock that this is a government sector employer. SHADY BUSINESS!
Pay is good
Professional job with effective management team. Opportunity for advancement. Fun and positive work atmosphere. Effective training programs. Great opportunity to work in the outdoors.
Very good for your lifestyle/fitness.
Heavy lifting of sport equipment.
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!
management, work environment
Build good strong relationships with the young adults and co-workers. Very fun experience that practices your leadership skills and character. Learned to be initiative throughout the workplace and constantly learned to improved on new sets of skills.
Very positive environment
Short hours but longer hours in the summer
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.
