Superintendent of Planning, Implementation (Former Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB5 June 2016
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.

Low Wages, Poor Leadership, Stagnant
Fitness Leader (Former Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB16 March 2019
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!

Low wage, inconsistent hours, out-of-date, unsupportive, cold workplace.
