Assistant to District Safety Specialist (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 29 January 2018
Early start at 7:00 AM, but that means an early finish - 3:30PM.
Review the day's or week's requirements with my supervisor and plan the activities accordingly.
Always be aware that the people that you work with are your best resources for getting things done. Everyone has secondary skills that enhance their basic job description. This makes it fun to work with them.
Management has their quirks, but they are open to new information, and are willing to listen if the information you are giving them will provide solutions to problems that they are dealing with. The culture is really quite friendly and upbeat.
As with any organization, there are a few sticks in the mud, but they can be handled.
Some jobs are started on without a clear understanding of the scope of activities needed to complete them properly. This leads to time crunches as the deadlines approach.
The best part of the job was that what I was doing was benefiting the community that I live in, and you could see the results of your work on a daily basis.

You can never do enough to make them happy. And they have a way of bullying guys into doing things. Their safety rep is paid to keep people at work doing rediculous things even when your doctor tells you not to be there
Occasional free food
Long days and have to fight to get paid for the overtime
