I love working as a lifeguard/swim instructor at the city of Burnaby, always many great experiences with great people! We don't get paid vacation days but we get payment in lieu.

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.

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.
Pros
Great pay
