I loved my time with the City of Medicine Hat.

It was a great place to work and I enjoyed the people that I worked with for the most part.


There was extensive training to enable us to carry out our assignments.

Enjoyed working here very much! They were a very welcoming Municipality that had a great environment. Monthly potlucks were also a hit, and they did have a social club that also offered nice meals.

I enjoyed working at different locations throughout the city. The customer base was mostly friendly with little to no complaints about department. Management was heavy, it was unclear to whom I was to answer to daily. Overall my experience was really good.

Well-paying with a relatively stable union environment. A little slow to advance from temp to perm status but if you put in the effort and don’t say no to work, you’ve got a good chance.
Pros
Good pay, steady work.
Cons
Slow advancement, not always a great work/life balance.

Manager of accounting expects staff to put their family life aside at the drop of a hat should work require it and leads through micromanagement and fear.

If you’re a diligent, forward-thinking individual, don’t waste your time working at the Family Leisure Centre (FLC). However it could be the perfect job if you enjoy socializing; just don’t expect to gain experience or advance your career.

- enhanced job title and job description. Fitness Leader = greet members and clean; you won't be responsible for much personal or group fitness

- don’t expect similar opportunities as co-workers

- minimal growth and development my management to improve the functioning of the team and the facility


The City of Medicine Hat – and therefore the FLC – operates in a very inefficient and unfair manner.


- hiring process takes months

- low wages and paper timesheets

- multiple temporary employees replace a full-time position

- shift times and hours vary considerably, inhibiting a second job


The City does a terrible job of promoting the FLC and any qualified individuals they employee, so get comfortable with an unsatisfactory position or find a different place to work!
Pros
Free membership (unofficially).
Cons
Low wage, inconsistent hours, out-of-date, unsupportive, cold workplace.

The City of Medicine Hat is a great place to work - amazing benefits and an awesome work-life balance with EDO's (Earned Days Off) and a flexible work schedule. There is a wonderful team culture and open communication with management. The City promotes continued learning and the "work hard, play hard" mentality.
Pros
EDO's, pension, health benefits, continued learning

Good place to work at and a secure job. Got to work with a lot of great people within the company itself and within the community. The most difficult part of the job would have been dealing with customers that were either intoxicated or mentally unstable. I enjoyed the people for the most part and I really enjoy driving in traffic.

Very poor continuity plan. Promise of good work-life balance but watched very strictly. Management is poorly trained to manage people and work groups. Opportunity for advancement exists, but if you are a required/ highly needed individual in your position then they will not advance you since no one else in the organization can do what you do.

Senior Management at the time would not support effective planning. They undermined every reasonable effort to advance good planning practices. Extremely high turnover in staff due to senior management behavior. Hiring, mentoring and training new staff was difficult given the attitude and behavior of senior management accommodations to those violating the laws and written policies of the city. Staff tried their best in all departments to work around this challenge but it was difficult at best. It took new leadership and a change in council to bring about more effective planning efforts.

Horrible doesn't even begin to describe how bad of a employer that the City of Medicine Hat is. Passive-aggressive supervisors always passing the buck. Culture is a joke, lots of talk but certainly no action. 0 job security at all. Employee's are baited against each other, backstabbing is the mantra. If you think this is a stable work environment you are far from the truth. AVOID at all costs.
Pros
none
Cons
poor leadership, bad culture and work environment
