Excellent Employer
I've truly enjoyed my time with the City of Greater Sudbury. The only reason I am leaving is that my contract is up. It was a great work environment who offered a great job, flexibility, and good pay.

productive and welcoming workplace
The management and workplace were very welcoming, we worked as a group in order to take on tasks quicker. The regreening program consisted of planting trees around greater sudbury as well as transplanting vegitation in order to add biodiversity to sudbury. I also did water sampleing in the lakes around greater sudbury as well as checked for blue green algae blooms in the water.
Pros
working as a team, welcoming environment, fair hours

Toxic Work Environment
Typical for government, I suppose, but these people invented the Toxic Workplace. Dishonest management, back room dealing, back stabbing staff, culture of blame.

They should have kept me.
The interview was over the phone, payrate was competitive with other City's It was a challenging gardening environment that gave me experience and first hand learning. The Management were considerate and thoughtful. The level of coworker cooperation was good. Gardeners were at times working independently or together at a variety of jobsites covered by the Horticulture Dept. I feel if they had better quality starter annuals for their gardening needs it would have helped give them a better show in Northern Gardening. Because Gardeners have to apply for their job every year there's no guarantee of same employer.

Fire Dept
Unorganized management unable to agree with each other or city council.
Many Career firefighters unable to adapt to the volunteer firefighters coexistence on calls. So much red tape to get anything done, this statement applies to a diverse range of areas and depts.

Stressful, A lot of unmentioned work
Is a good job to start off, can be stressful and taxing at times. Sometimes understaffed but typically resolved within a few hours. Good co-workers, high expectations limited training.

Life changing workplace
The regreening program is an increadible part of Sudbury's environmental growth. Your typical day includes working with a crew of over twenty people in various forested regions in the city of Greater Sudbury. Duties rotate between tree planting, liming and forest floor transplant.

A pleasant work environment
Great place to expand your historical knowledge, as well as gain computer and research skills. A typical day at work includes to digitally scan and upload archival documents (ledgers, photographs, minute books) and having to add an appropriate description related to the document. For documents that do not have proper information associated with the file, thourough research was needed.
