Decent staff but a very difficult manager to work for.
Eq4 (Former Employee) –  Prince George, BC15 January 2019
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.

Terrible management, politics and unfair practices.
Public Works (Former Employee) –  Utilities15 October 2018
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.
Pros
Pay, benefits and possible overtime
Cons
The leadership, union and nepotism

Good wage and benefits. Awful management, poor morale and little to no union representation.
Munocipal worker (Former Employee) –  Prince George BC29 September 2018
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.
Pros
Highest wages for municipal workers in province. Good pension and benefits.
Cons
Toxic work environment. Little to no union representation. Expect poor behaviour out of management.

Good training offered but high internal politics involved
Supervisor Fleet Operations (Former Employee) –  City of Prince George11 April 2016
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.
Pros
Very good training and fellow employees
Cons
High Internal Politics involved in position
