No communication of expectations by management, no care for employees (part-time employees in particular), no performance reviews or feedback/communication on work performance. Negative working environment and lots of gossip. Scheduling was terrible - would be scheduled every weekend and sometimes with not enough time between shifts as per the ESA.
Cons
Mainly weekend shifts, unsupportive management

Typical life-guarding job. Position included teaching swimming lessons and guarding public and lane swims. Staff were great to work around. Wage is minimum and could be better.

Working for the City of Kitchener has been a wonderful experience so far. Not only are they a great employer they also maintain having the utmost respect and support for all who are employed by them. Working for the City has allowed me to grow as young individual looking to mold her future as well as balance my work life, without the support and flexibility of my employer I don't know that I would have achieved all that I have.

i was able to learn time management skills. Some days we would have to rush to get everything done, whereas, on other days the crew would have to go at a more slow pace to take up the full work day hours.

I have worked two jobs for the City of Kitchener. I could not be more proud of my home town government! It is the perfect place to work for all. Diversity matters here. Experience is experience as they say!

For the task at hand, management did not provide the necessary staff or leadership to effectively tackle problems that arose. Very strange schedule, with little consideration given to workflow.

The city of Kitchener pools are great places to work for high school students looking for a part time job with minimal and flexible hours, with benefits of cheap re certifications and a fairly high rate of pay. However, full time hours are not easily available and the course requirements for the job are expensive. This job is mostly a resume builder.

I love my job, and the people I work with! The salary is great, and so are the benefits. Management, however, is not so great. They tend to micromanage and play favourites. All in all, a great place to work though.

I volunteered with children in summer camps for multiple years and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere the children had. Somewhat cliquey between the counsellors and volunteers, unfortunately.

Because I was a camp leader I worked with children all summer long. The children were quite difficult despite the training I had but the coworkers made days bearable because the were fun and understanding.

Loved my time at the city of Kitchener, was sad to go back to school after my Co-op. The engineering department was very supporting and always encouraged continual learning.
