Toxic, broken, old boys club, & 70’s style seniority-based pecking order culture.

Avoid this toxic Organization at all costs. Some Depts (not all) have the highest rates of Employee harassment claims, law suits, mental health counseling and bullying in AB! HR IS A JOKE! Every last one in that Dept should be fired on the spot. Worst Depts are Public Works, Development Service’s & Building Inspection

Positive yet hard working

Hard-working environment with great people to work with. A positive atmosphere with a meaningful impact on the community. With some days harder than others, you are still left wanting to return the next day.

fun place to work

I loved every minute working for the city. Great group of people and being able to work outdoors all day, everyday was incredible. Great opportunity for summer students to make some money before returning to school in the fall. Would highly recommend this summer job to anyone.

Don’t expect movement

Great place for stability and long term. Some training but don’t expect job movement or to learn any different skills. Slow down and don’t expect much from anyone.

My life in the City of Lethbridge

Typical Day at work: There is no such thing as a typical day at the Purchasing Department. Our workload depended entirely on the projects of the other departments. One minute you can casually be finishing up a project and then you receive a number or projects in different stages and they all need our input. Over the years I have seen many managers come and go so I have had to adjust to many different manners of managing. Some good and some not so good but I have learnt to work with all of them and work has remained fun. Hardest part of the job: We had one group of supervisors that had very explosive tempers and the manager just let it happen. Sometimes it seemed like he would set them up to fight. In all my years that was probably the hardest space in time. Most enjoyable part of the job: The most enjoyable part of my job was when I learnt LiveCycle and was able to make the forms. This was very hard as no one in the organization knew the program so I was on my own.

Pros

Recognition parties

Cons

Very political

good organization to work with flexible with needs and balance. some engagement and culture issues due to the public sector. Council not standing up for employees is quite difficult. Senior management doesn't always listen to needs and achievements.

Great Place

The City of Lethbridge is a great place to work. There are many opportunities to advance and the pay is excellent for someone with minimal education. They will give the training you need as well as any training you ask for. I received my class 3Q drivers license through them as well as received skid steer training.

Casual work which was interesting and varied

I found my work with the city interesting. Unfortunately it was only casual so I didn't get enough hours. I learned skills I hadn't had previously like dealing with cash and that was good.
