Very little in terms of out of work stuff going on in the office, but the office is relaxed and good to work at. Low pressure environmkent, typically get in and go about your work. Expected to get work done, but not pushed to work all the time, so breaks are expected.

For the most part it's a good place to work. You could do a lot worse. I'll remain as long as they'll have me. Will start you as seasonal employee and you can expect a layoff in late fall.

Even with the challenges related to the projects managed by City employees, the environment is light and very collaborative. It is really driven by the 4 C's : Collaboration, Character, Commitment and Competency.

As a volunteer, my responsibilities were to support the counselors in delivering programming to upwards of 30 campers. While I held a volunteer position at the time, I acquired the skills needed to apply for and enjoy a successful part-time career working with other non-profit camps in the Kananaskis.Trying to decide if the camp life is for you? Try volunteering first!

I worked for a day as a DRO for the provincial elections. The environment was fast paced and the co-workers were very helpful. If I get a chance, I would love to go back and work again.

I always enjoyed going to work in the morning, I never had a bad day at work. The experiences I got to be involved in, really gave me great life experience. The employees within the workplace were like no other, they were always there to help and always fun to work with. The culture within the workplace is like nothing I have ever experienced, it felt like one big family.

The Waste and Recycling Services section is unfair and unequal to employees, showing blatant favouritism to some and a consistent history of antagonism and contempt for others. An employee can expect harassment and personal attacks by management as well as a toxic work environment. The job gave an overall feeling of "us" against "them" (being the city).
