Reviews about Pay & benefits for Technician at City of Calgary

Your job satisfaction really depends on your leader's mgmt style/competence

If you get into a good team, it's golden. If not, there can be very traumatizing, back-biting, dysfunctional behaviours to deal with from either bosses, coworkers or both. The policies for respectful workplace and the like, exist... the trouble is that in some groups, they are not enforced. There are sweetheart deals for some staff but not for others. It is stressful that some situations are not fair, makes you feel vulnerable and that is unproductive. Some mgmt should not be in their positions due to no education or life experience for the responsibility. They tend to hire leaders from within the ranks of staff and then don't require them to seek further education. If you get a leader who has integrity, cares and is true to his/her word, then you will thrive and enjoy your career. It's unfortunate, but the "good" leaders are few and far between. Just when you think you have the worst leader... and get a different job, you find out that this one is even worse. The benefits are ok, not super. I like that there's a pension. I have benefitted from working from home since the pandemic. The best thing is the ability to move around by applying for different positions. Hopefully, you can find something/someone to your liking. I am a technology worker, indoors, working 37.5 hours/wk. There are flexible work options and now Telework options.


Telework/working from home, flexible work schedules, pension, stat hol


Few good leaders/bosses. Weak union. Very weak HR dept.

Everything non-critical is contracted out

As a sub-contractor, opportunity for advancement is minimal. You do not get all the tools to perform your job efficiently and receive pressure on things out of your control.


A paycheck


Minimal reward or incentive.

Fun workplace with good people

This is one of the better jobs that I have had. Decent pay with three day weekends every weekend. People are good for the most part and work is hard at times. Being in shape will help you with this job.
