Volunteer (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 29 October 2018
The staff was constantly stalking you to make sure the work was getting done and if you spoke even to ask a question you would get in trouble, not enough hours ever. It got very repetitive and boring. only good thing was the friends you make with fellow co-workers
Committee Clerk (Former Employee) – Clerks Department – 30 November 2018
This is the worst municipality to work for. They lie to their own council, mislead and manipulate their employees. They are a horrible employer, and they don't care about their employees at all. Work for any other employer than this. Stay clear.
Very productive workplace, always something to do, good hours, very flexible
Legends Centre Mainteance (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 30 January 2018
A typical day at legends is a very productive, laid back yet efficient day. I am required to do basic janitor duties such as clean floors, glass, bathrooms, tables, etc. I also work as a rink rat by moving the nets when flooding the ice. I am a very easy going, positive person so it is easy to get along with everyone there, no matter the age. The hardest part of the job would be balancing out floods, cleaning duties and setting up for birthday parties and events on time while still managing to attend to then public. Overall I enjoy legends and the day to day relationships I strengthen and gain, and everything I learn in between.

Community Service Worker (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 3 November 2017
All the managers and supervisor were nice people and did what they could to make working a enjoyable time. I do wish there was more opportunity to grow in the area I was in I only left to try and find bigger opportunities. It's a great place to work for a younger individual just starting out in the working world.

Field Placement Student (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 23 August 2017
I enjoyed doing my Field Placement with the HR department at City of Oshawa. The ladies and gentlemen in the department were very helpful and kind. I was only there for 8 months so I feel like my opinion of working there would not be adequate, but I definitely enjoyed my time there and would definitely have accepted an offer if they were to offer me a position after my field placement.
Very rewarding job, flexible hours, great coworkers.

Skating Instructor (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 21 April 2017
Working part time over the last year I found my job to be very rewarding. Spending numerous weeks teaching kids how to skate and handle the puck and seeing their improvements was fun to see and definitely the most enjoyable part of the job. The management is very helpful and understanding as they worked around my school and hockey schedule.
Counsellor in Training (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 23 July 2016
This was just a summer job and training, but what I would do is go to two different camps over the summer and help out with the programs they had planned. This is were my team leader skills had the most impact as I had to organize a program based of the type of camp for a bunch of kids vary in age and gender. With the management of it all I wasn't really a big thing that I noticed like how we were doing camps and the only other leaders around were about my age so I don't think I should comment on it. It was a day to day figure out what to do. At most I worked with two other people and I was only with them for a week, so I didn't get to know them too well but I believe they were good people. The hardest part was coming up with an activity on the fly, If something was wrong or the kids didn't want to continue their current one. The most enjoyable part was staying active while working, there wasn't a time when I wasn't moving.
