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.

My day entailed making sure the day to day operations of the landfill were done according to Alberta Environmental legislation. I was to ensure the safety of the public and co-workers in a fast paced environment.
Pros
Operating heavy equipment at a landfill.

My day started with a number of assigned duties in different parts of the city. Typically I would plan my day so I could accomplish everything before the laborers would arrive to start prepping the site. I had to set up safety barriers to protect the laborers from traffic. Once this was done I would operate whatever heavy machinery was needed to complete the job; ie.: grader, backhoe, etc. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the public...drivers who seemed to think the barriers and warnings didn't apply to them. At the end of the day I felt pretty good about getting the job done.
Pros
Different duties every day...variety; didn't get bored.
Cons
The public swearing at you because they were delayed in traffic.

General landscaping around the city. Great crew to work with. Low-stress level. The best thing about it was completing a job and being able to see what you had accomplished.
