Clerk II - Administrative Support in Edmonton, AB
on 14 September 2022
Pretty Decent Pay
Decent pay for work achieved, it was hard to get a permanent contract due to Union Rules. I enjoyed two of the teams I worked with. My manager tried to get me a perm placement but it was impossible due to covid layoffs.

Excellent compensation, horrible management
The City of Edmonton pays extremely well, however the management is getting increasingly toxic. Too many managers, frequently hiring their friends, forcing them to make up projects and initiatives to justify their jobs - at the expense of people who actually work in the field. Total disconnect between management and field workers.Increasingly moving away from full time jobs to "11 month postings" to ensure they don't have to give benefits and can drop you without justification.Potential advancement is blocked by education and accumulating seniority - almost no emphasis placed on merit.

Very clicky and immature situations
Poor managementHad inexperienced people in positions which made the job twice as hard because of baby sitting or having to do your job as well as theirs and looking over your shoulder because they are friends with management.
Data Collection in Edmonton, AB

Relaxed and good supervisors
I had a good experience, the on boarding process is on line, time consuming and you’re not paid for it so that’s a downfall. Unpaid training. Working there was great otherwise. Co workers were good people and the job itself was fun to do.
