Wading Pool Attendant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 January 2019
Your daily routine with any job city of Ottawa job is to turn up at your shift and do the work that has been assigned to you by your supervisor. The staff are generally understanding when you have questions about the work or training and will guide you down the path of most success. From my experience there have been a few miscommunications between the office and employees in my position, other than that it is an amazing place to work!
Special Needs Support Worker (Former Employee) – Minto, NB – 8 January 2019
I was really looking forward to working for the city of ottawa until I started working there. I was a special needs support worker and I barley got any support from the others staff. There was time where I went the whole day without eating because I had to helped my kids eat because they were unable to do so which is fine that is my job but it would have been nice if i was offered asome help so I could eat my food as well

VERIFICATION SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 1 January 2019
Not enough training provided when asked for. Depending on management, career growth is either blocked or supported. The City offers such broad services that it allows you to jump around departments and learn new things about the City.
Senior Systems Analyst (SAP) (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 14 November 2018
This place is really a great place to work. The benefits are pretty good. Management is ok. However I find it not progressive at all. They rely mostly on consultants so less opportunities for full time employees to get quality work. Politics is all over the place like any other public sector organization which sometimes kills the merit.
Specialty instructor (Current Employee) – Ottawa – 12 October 2018
Working with the City of Ottawa has been a great experience for me. While exploring multiple different aspect of my area of interest, I acquired a lot of experience working with multiple diverse groups. I would love to get more involved in the area as well.
little shifts, its more of a seasonal kind of job.. shifts are not always available. The working environment can sometimes be harsh because we hand out flyers during winter for 2 hours before we get a break. Funny enough that's when the job's availability is more
Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 July 2018
Unionized, fairly and clearly compensated, clear responsibility RE: replacing shifts and picking up shifts, fun environment, ample training leading up to hiring, good team dynamic (if sometimes a little cliquey - this is a teen job, after all).
