The managers were always there for staff to support them if a member of the public got out of hand.

Most people were very friendly and welcoming.


Extensive training and support if you needed help with something.
Pros
Discount on city events
Cons
Members of the public can be quite rude

This was only a 4 week schooling CDI College prerequisite in completing my APA. The Supervisor was very nice to me and was very helpful in giving me advice on how to enter the job market at the City of Edmonton.

There is no longer a work life balance during Covid-19 at the Eco stations. It's all work with minimal days off and a struggle to even get one day off. Management has changed our hours, our schedule, no summer staff has been brought back.. no recognition for our work during this time. I no longer recommend working for the Eco Stations within the CoE
Pros
Pay, Co-workers
Cons
Work life balance, time off, appreciation, advancement

I like the hours, it was constant unless they give you ample noticed for changes during the shift.
the boss is always friendly and available. he gives you constructive criticism when need it.

training is always offered for any task, you just have to be patient with the order in which people request to be trained for set task.

The job itself is pretty good. I can get really busy like to the point of not being able to take your breaks during your shift. But, most of the time it's alright.

The management is terrible.

The City pools are well maintained and if not they have scheduled maintenance to do any repairs and options for instructors to relocate until their home pool is finished construction. The pay is good, and the people you meet are helpful and always looking out for you to improve your own skills.

Employer began a campaign of misrepresenting city sectors roles, breaching confidentiality, hiding documentation allowed access under FOIP bylaws, then laid me off, terminated me for handing in paperwork late, and gave me a positive letter of reference in that order as soon as courts closed due to covid-19.
Pros
good pay
Cons
rampant managerial corruption under aquatic strategies

A major employer with good benefits, pay, and culture. If you don’t worry about leadership craziness and unneeded red tape, this is a good choice for you.
Pros
Great work.

Favoritism and 2 sets of rules, for the rats. Management only attends work site for discipline. Racism, bullying and harassment are everywhere. Managers hide behind policies.

It's true; most jobs require a form of experience from 2-5 years but once you have accepted a job offer, they set you up real nice. The workplace culture is amazing and fun; collaborative and stress-free.
Pros
Benefits, Work-life balance
