Heavy Equipment Operator/Labourer in Red Deer, AB
on 29 January 2022
Great City that's growing and improving in its service to the public. The work is not very hard and they will send you to training when possible.
Great work environment and job tasks were never too great not to achieve success. Being laid off too much a year was a problem for me. I spent 17 years with a City the same size as Red Deer, so most of my Training and Education were completed, and having all the years of experience, I thought it would be valuable to them. I was laid off again and moved on, unfortunately.

Great pay, but not much support
The job in itself is terrific. There are amazing coworkers and you get constant training through Inservices. Teaching lessons can be fun, but be prepared to be in the water teaching for long hours.Often there are times that management does not step up to the plate or are not even present at work. Management will often ask you to do jobs outside of your training/pay grade and not compensate you for it. Except for a few positions at each pool, everyone is a casual employee, which means that there are no benefits that come with the job. You have to work a ridiculous amount of hours to be considered to apply for City benefits as a casual worker. This usually means many years as most casual workers only get about 10-20 hours per week.I worked for the City for many years, and overall enjoyed my time. It is great pay and putting management aside, the City of Red Deer is a great place to work.

Genuinely care for Red Deer's success
The City of Red Deer has steered through the brunt of the worldwide oil recession as well as could be expected. The staff truly care about making Red Deer a better and more efficiently run organization, led by their interim CAO.
