Manager was the biggest barrier, and had little patience for trainees

Had a short stay with the city... although the training program was good for bus drivers, the manager was not supportive of trainees to allow them to get up to par. The manager was unreasonable, and quick to dismiss. The other drivers were very supportive. And driving for the city was enjoyable, as well as dealing with the public. The most difficult situation was the weather, and trying to keep up with the times to be on schedule to pick up the riders... we were expected to do so when it was foggy, and the weather was bad... sometimes the roads were not in the best condition.

Overcoming stereotypes

Being the only indigenous administrative assistant around it was challenging and hard work to overcome stereotypes and prove my worth. I worked very hard.

Job culture

Racist and mean spirited.

A very mean-spirited and petty minded place. There is a culture of backbiting and backstabbing there. Life and work have been made unnecessarily difficult and overwhelming. Supervisors and coworkers are so nasty.

Pros

None

Cons

Extreme micro- management.
