Working with the City of Mississauga helped open up a lot of paths for me. I was able to learn how to teach kids from ages 0-14 how to swim and I learned how to provide customers with excellent service. I also improved my communication skills through interacting with my superiors as well as coworkers.
The workplace was friendly and the customers were extremely nice. Most of the time, it was only a one-person shift. I learned to work fast and efficiently. Other team members were also very nice and accomodating. The workload and schedule were doable and reasonable. It was enjoyable!
Worst training experience in career, had a rude Jamaican named Camille yelling from a paper at us Management has no clue, beyond fake Some coworkers are nice, others jealous and gossip Promoted people to Team Leads who had the worst attendance record, who then go on Long Term Disability year after year
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

The City of Mississauga offers its employees a learning environment unlike any other. The amount of customer interaction as well as problem solving opportunities I met some of my closest friends through this job and have enjoyed every minute of working with the city.
I was let go from my job with City of Mississauga for reporting s-xual harassment. I endured bullying and s-xual misconduct from older men and my superiors every single season I worked here. This is a classic municipality work environment. Unless you embody the exact personality that they're looking for, everyone will treat you like an outsider, meaning don't work too hard, show too much initiative or ask too many questions, be petty and gossip when they want you to gossip, don't kiss up but be liked by everyone. It's an incredibly tough culture, I don't recommend working for Parks unless you have a super thick skin and go-with-the-flow attitude.
A typical day at work is different for every employee in the city, from conveners, to snack-bar staff and maintenance to camp leaders, working for the city encapsulates countless experiences, I have occupied various. In my time working as a summer camp leader my typical day started at 8:30 and ended at 4. In between those hours I would have my schedule prepared for the camp program, take attendance and then start with the first activity. Proceeding through the activities my campers would stop for a lunch break at 11:30, resume following my schedule and then be ready for parent/guardian pick up at 4.The schedules involves various indoor and outdoor organized games and activities developed along High Five guidelines. Through experience and application I learned amazing time management and organization skills. Every day we work we are tested on these skills and improve them with practice. The managers I have had the pleasure of working with always applied a genuine diligence to their job and aspired to set a good example for everyone around them. They apply a kind of authentic kindness to their work relationships that is rare in today's society. It made the coworkers feel like one big family which is essentially the workplace culture; very positive and team oriented. It creates a relaxed feel to the employees. We never feel pressured, however we are always thorough no matter what. We hold ourselves and each other to high standards and always help out if one of us falls behind at the job and needs a hand. The hardest part of the job at first was customer service but since - more...
fun, easy responsibilities, nice coworkers, fun work parties
not for people who cant wake up early, not for people who can not handle being heavily liable for others
City of Mississauga is the ideal place to work at, people, management, culture is amazing. i have worked at the Transportation and works, also the Museum which i loved, if i have the option to work with them again i will not think twice.
A typical day at work was a physical education class. I made games and would help organize small events for the campers. The hardest part was trying to get everyone involved in a certain game or activity.
Great work-life balance
Great City to work for! Encouraging, welcoming, supportive, room for growth, friendly, open-minded and actually caring about the animals. I had the best Supervisor who was always open to new suggestions and just to talk. Anytime I needed help, everyone would offer their kindness. Seriously, it was the best job I had.
