Very Proactive and Lively Environment

Working through the Town has taught me a lot about being responsible and being a balanced person. I've met a lot of great people while working. Overall a great place to start off.

Uplifting work environment

The Town of Richmond Hill, is quite the entertaining work environment. Unlike most jobs, the day to day agenda varies. It was stressed by management that customers were a priority and efficient and appropriate customer service was the key to success.

Pretty good job with friendly people

Job as the facility attendant is not difficult. A typical day at work would be to open up specific community centres and set up for swimming classes and other activities. The hardest part of the job is when following specific steps everyday and making sure everything is operating as usual.

Pros

Not too difficult job

Cons

Can be boring sometimes

It's a good starter job for students and people looking for part time hours.

A lot of facilities to work at and lots of staff to trade shifts with, meaning you can work as much or as little as possible. Great for students and people looking for extra cash on the side.

Job is great, flexible, ability to talk to patrons

Main task is to ensure community center runs smoothly. Mostly cooped up in a room, but able to move around freely. Being able to interact with customers and other members of the community is a great plus and passes time quickly. Fast-paced, and tight schedules require great organizational ability.

fun

The kids are really fun to work with. The hours suck. Teaching kids was a very good learning experience. The supervisors were nice and helped a lot with stubborn kids.

Excellent Job Culture and Flexible Hours

I do many thinks at the pool, the to main and obvious things I do are to prevent accidents/treat them, and to teach children, adults, toddlers how to be comfortable in the water and how to swim. On a Regular Lifeguard shift, we would always arrive 20min early to prepare for the swim to take place, same goes for instructionals. Everyone treats each other as an equal and is it very fun working in the atmosphere the pool provides. The most difficult part of the job has to be the communication and patience with smaller children and there ability to swim. Some kids are more difficult to deal with than others but at the very end of the day, they are learning new things and are being motivated to be active. Management is amazing, very easy to talk to and if we have any concerns, they take the right actions and ensure that it will meet up to the persons expectation.

Pros

Amazing Staff, and Free Food

Cons

Alot of short shifts

Relaxed enviornment, no pressure

A very relaxed environment. Typical day includes complaining about how overworked we are (which isn't the case). Inside workers not unionized but are still lazy. Often get free lunches charged to the tax payers ;-)

Fun place to work, great ethics and values

A company that proves you can be ethical with values and still thrive as a business. They treat they're employees very well, but it isn't exactly easy to move up to new positions (they don't always become available).

Pros

Positive atmosphere, great philosophy/outlook

Cons

Sales driven, set on particular personality type for hiring
