Love my job, hate the politics
Program Instructor (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON28 April 2018
I have worked for the city for almost 5 years and in that in that time the amount of bureaucratic nonsense I have dealt with is insane. The upper management is only concerned with attending meetings and looking busy and they do not care about the front end staff. That being said I do love my actual job. There is never a dull moment and I am allowed to be very creative and relatively free. It just hard to know that there is almost a 0% chance that I will ever have a full time position there or be supported when attempting to move up.

fair environment, but benefits are non-existent
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 November 2017
The work environment is fair and a good place socially. Dealing with staff at times could be frustrating. There are also benefits for entry-level positions as they will more often than not will offer a contract position for entry-level positions before they offer permanent positions with benefits.
