They wont hire full time or part time staff, they hire only casual. Because of this you are not entitled to benefits and your rate of pay increase which is based on hours takes a very long time. Especially if your not one of your bosses favourites. If you dont kiss up enough you dont get the shifts.

Engineer (Former Employee) - Red Deer
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.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Former Employee) - Red Deer, AB
Management is very immature they pick favourites and do not have good manners. They are childish and rude.They choose who to give shifts too and that plays along with the favourites, if you’re not a favourite then no hours for you ( this is specifically aquatics department )
