Lead Hand for Confined Space (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 August 2018
I worked there for 27 years and enjoyed every day of it. I was given opportunities to learn new skills and get job advancement . I found the management was fair and we all had equal opportunity for positions as they became available.
The City of Calgary is one of the highest paying municipalities in the country and offers many more benefits than cons.
Geospatial Technologist - Cartography (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 July 2018
Typical day at work was professional, yet casual. Safety and Diversity in the Workplace is strongly promoted. There was no dress code and in a professional environment I was allowed to take breaks when desired. There was no time keeper and as long as I was productive my work ethic was never questioned. My team leader was very knowledgeable and did not micro manage our department. Every one in my group was approachable and there was no requirement to follow a chain of command even though we have senior positions and coordinators. When I had ideas or a desire to take on new tasks, I would usually be granted my request if I could provide a use case and it did not impact the department. I was able to learn new skills by taking the initiative and approaching my team leader. The hardest part of the job was to work with others that I would deem unproductive. These type of workers are protected by the union and it is very difficult for management to take action. Therefore, all you can do is maintain a positive attitude and think of your contributions and not the lack of others. Thank goodness 99% of City of Calgary employees are respectful hard working individuals. I enjoyed coffee breaks with co-workers, organized city events, the freedom of my position, the ability to work four days a week, the option to work two days from home, and lots more.
Pension, flexible work hours, telework option, very competitive wages, compressed work week, apply/work in temporary City positions while retaining your base position.
Golf Course Attendant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 July 2018
Great place to work, treat you like people. Excellent work climate. wish all companies treated employees this way. One draw back, some positions traditionally held by women are not unionized and therefore you get treated and paid way way less.
Golf Course Lead (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 June 2018
great way to get a farmers tan. early mornings and beautiful grounds. lots of lazy people looking to do the bare minimum. the best part of the job was a job well done. the worst part of the job was doing other workers jobs over because they didnt do it right the first time
DR02, Volunteer Election Worker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 April 2018
This was a temporary position to help organize voter ballots for Calgary's 2017 Municipal Election. I enjoyed the work environment immensely, everyone was a good team player to one-another to get everything done and it was an experience I will not forget any time soon.
Custodian/Maintenance (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta , Canada – 29 March 2018
A typical day of work is to keep busy and time go by fast. I have had experience that i do not know before. Also, the Management is nice , they look after you very good and friendly workplace. The hardest part of the jobs is remove the snow and your sweeper is broken. For me, the most enjoyable part of the job is driving on cops's cars.
