Operations/Programs Assistant (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 9 March 2018
I worked in operations at one of the rec centres. Pretty much the only good thing was the pay. The managers did not care about their people and treated them like a number. When they did care, they played favourites which was not fair to other hard working employees. Very cliquey. Co Workers were generally pretty awesome and fun to work with. Management made it an unhealthy working environment.

P.L (Former Employee) – Red deer – 29 October 2017
I worked at the city for 5 years. The people I worked with were amazing. Management and HR however are a joke to say the least. I had identified a work hazard and was told because it shon a negative light on the city I would be reprimanded or let go if I told anyone else about it. I was quite upset and went to HR where I was told the same thing. I quit shortly after...

Casual Employment in the Dryland Department means Casual
Program Assistant (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 12 September 2016
I work with some pretty amazing people in the Dryland Department at the GH Dawe Community Centre. The hours don't meet my needs and after 5+ years I am still unable to advance since there are not many opportunities to advance within this department.
AMAZING co-workers and constantly changing. Every day is a new adventure
As a casual employee you have no guaranteed ANYTHING. Hours, seniority, benefits, bathroom coverage.
Lifeguard Instructor (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 7 May 2015
A typical day at work in this position over the fall-winter term includes communicating with patrons and the general public as a lifeguard while also maintaining a safe, clean, and manageable pool environment. In the spring-summer term, work was a bit more busy, as it was the busiest time of the year, mainly due to the fact that an outdoor pool was present in the work environment. I have learned a variety of communication skills and first aid techniques being in this position for three years. It was a team environment, so co-workers were very diligent and was very good with communication with fellow co-workers and myself. Hardest part of the job is the consistency of enforcing rules onto the general public (mainly children, young teen, and teen). Most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside a great team of co-workers.
Free access to facility areas, such as pool and gym. Good pay.

I loved working at The City of Red Deer. I hope to someday get a full time position with them. The atmosphere was so friendly and inviting. The people were wonderful and kind. I was always busy from start to finish. It made me feel very productive at the end of the day. My positions there certainly exercised my brain.
