Court Liaison/Reader (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 6 September 2017
The City of Chilliwack can be a great place to work if you have a good manager in your department. Great salaries, benefits, hours, work/life balance. The key to your happiness is to find the manager you can tolerate until you retire.
Shift work and irregular hours - not for everyone.
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 14 November 2017
Excellent pension plan. Depending on your position within the city I would recommend working for them. Unfortunately their maintenance department did not meet or suit my career goals. If you enjoy cleaning toilets and cleaning up after people who often have little or no regard for others then this would be a good job. The hardest part of the job was dealing with people who had no regard for rules (drug addicts often used the washrooms). It was often unsafe as late night jobs were often done alone and in unsavory areas of the community. In my opinion, management was not always on the same page as the employee when it came to personal safety. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the public who rented the facilities and operating the machinery needed to perform the tasks relevant to the job.

I enjoyed being employed with the City of Chilliwack because of its positive work culture. Colleagues are friendly and supportive, and there is a sense that management actively encourages staff to improve their skills.
