Comfortable place to work, good job security

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great if you want an easy paced job with total job security. Not great if you want real money or real experience. The shift work can suck sometimes but the work atmosphere definitely makes up for it! Great management definitely helps too!

Very stressful and changing environment

Management has poor time and budget management. Your week often changes because there are no clear plans and things often go off track. A lot of the priorities are determined by Council so things can go off the rails many times.Not a very supportive or positive environment. The job was not enjoyable or rewarding and it was often stressful. If they did not pay well, they wouldn’t be able to keep people.


Competitive pay and benefits


Long hours, stressful environment, toxic people

Every day is different which keeps it interesting. Management is fair and works to solve issues. Hours for casuals can be sporadic. Great co workers who work as a team.

Good benefits and salary

Due to the union, it is difficult to advance based on skills and work ethics. Preference is given to certificates and not experience and capabilities.

Wonderful place to work

Very professionable, 99% of time very Much all business, very caring people to work for. Mostly all business but you do get some relaxation moments. Would say 90% of staff working really enjoy the job, the people and and the smiles they get. Very happy family.

Great job

I really enjoyed my time here. Co workers were great and so were the supervisors. Lots of different jobs to change days up. So days are slower then others. Was told I worked to fast some times.

The best learning experience one can be apart of

Being in the Aquatics Divisor of the City of Prince George gave me a wide variety of skills that I will use for the rest of my life. I would recommend pursuing this career if you want a lot of hours and have the opportunity to hone your first aid and communication skills.

Decent staff but a very difficult manager to work for.

The roads department Manager has a bad temper and is very quick to fly off the handle. Makes bad calls and decisions before putting any thought behind them. Acts first, thinks after.

Excellent place to work

Work load was there in the busy office which it did not make difference as the management and office staff were just so helpful and excellent. I learned a lot and got my foundation of enforcement skills and office management in variety of departments. There was no pressure or hypes to make workers nervous, unwanted and lacking knowledge. Management were just great and very helpful. They made me feel I was one of them. There was no hard part of my job. It was hardest thing to do was to resign to relocate for my children's university in lower mainland. My most enjoyable part of the job was to catch up in all my task and at the end of the day I get to discuss things with my other co-workers that we may learn and compare the situation and things.


Very positive office environment


There is no cons about City of Prince George.

Great Salary, Benefits and Team

Terrible management, politics and unfair practices.

The politics, nepotism and cronyism is awful. Toxic work environment is an understatement. Management turns a blind eye to the problems and that’s from the top right down to the foreman positions. Harassment is mainstream and the union is less than effective. Benefits and pay are the only reason to stay, but expect your mental state to be challenged if you believe in standing up for what’s right. The city is less involved with looking after the citizens and more about looking out for themselves. Abhorrent behaviour such as theft, bullying and harassment in all forms is permitted as long as you’re friends with the right people. Don’t expect much from CUPE should you encounter an issue. Not sure what they’re doing with the union dues because It doesn’t appear to be going to workers grievances. Maybe it’s going toward union trips to discuss how not to fight for employees rights. At any rate don’t expect to be treated well. Just make your money and go home. Try to be invisible.


Pay, benefits and possible overtime


The leadership, union and nepotism

Good wage and benefits. Awful management, poor morale and little to no union representation.

Used to be a great place to work. Current management walks all over employees, they have total disregard for the collective agreement. In 2 short years, many of the senior employees have either opted to take early retirement, quit or have been fired for speaking out about mismanagement. The once effective CUPE union has become a "lap dog" for the management. If you take a job here, you will move up fast, as the turn-over rate is becoming high. There are good benefits to working here, but keep to yourself and dont speak out. It is not a happy work environment.


Highest wages for municipal workers in province. Good pension and benefits.


Toxic work environment. Little to no union representation. Expect poor behaviour out of management.

Good training offered but high internal politics involved

Was a very demanding job as service requirements were high but monetary resources to provide equipment and staff were not there for support. The pressures of internal politics were always active in the work environment which was an unfortunate part of an otherwise good job.


Very good training and fellow employees


High Internal Politics involved in position
