Thought this would be a great learning experience, more frustrating and drained my self-esteem
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Dearness – 20 November 2013
-Poor management of Kitchen/Dietary positions, lack of communication between management. -Too many different departments in charge of different areas and no communication. -Overall staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, however senior staff members only familiar with their positions, unreliable to ask questions that are out of their every routine. -Asking someone "how are you doing" at the beginning of a shift is NOT a clear way of asking how they are doing pertaining to the job. -More than once scheduled for shifts NOT trained on, then criticized when tasks were done incorrectly/wrong. -Heard positive reviews from co-workers members, yet negative reviews from management.

Temporary Labourer- Exeter Road Yard (Former Employee) – London, ON – 14 January 2018
I learned to communicate effectively with a variety of individuals. Public service provided me with the skills to interact with the community positively. Time management was a must especially when posing Health and Safety Risks such as replacing manholes, sidewalk and road replacement, pothole filling. The most enjoyable part of the job were the people.
