Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
When working at the city, the tasks were very similar day to day. Wasn't a lot of flexible work to be done and everyone seemed to be on their own schedule.

The job is very rewarding but the management has changed

A typical day at work inspecting many different types of buildings is rewarding because I am able to help or direct builders to successful completion of any building project. I learn new things every day because I implement the BC building code and Fire code every day. The management has changed and so has the workplace culture. The hardest part of my job is finding time to read all the reports. The most enjoyable part of my job is taking on new and more complicated projects where I am chellanged to think.

Pros

Freedom to work responsibility

Cons

Some of the attitudes

Good job to have

Like any job, there is always ups and downs. However, the people were always great to work with, and management was very accomodating as well for personal life. Plus the pay is awesome.

Bylaw Canvasser

The typical day required a lot of data entry infront of a computer but also a lot of driving around the city. I found it to be a very enjoyable job and a great way to make a name for myself within the City of Richmond. I was only on a summer contract with them but I am excited to get the chance again this summer to do it again.

Pros

Great Pay and Benefits
