Relaxed outdoor work with a team environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed my work as a seasonal labourer. Although the job can be physically demanding, you get to be outside all day in the summer and can take pride in maintaining our city's wonderful parks. Management can be hard to deal with, and the culture can be clique-y, but overall it's a fun place to work. Beware that as a seasonal employee, you don't qualify for benefits. I worked for them for 6 years and never qualified because I didn't have enough CONSECUTIVE hours.

Pros

every third Friday off (EDO), outdoors

Cons

no benefits

Good Place to work overall

Pay is very good, EDO's are great. Some bosses are amazing and understanding, others are bitter and jaded. It depends on who you work with, but most people are really laid back and easygoing.

Pros

EDO's, pay for education

Low moral and top heavy management.

First 6 years were exciting. Alot of various jobs. Management was a bit much. They throw away thousands of dollars away on poor ideas from city hall, and nickle and dime employees. Poor leadership and low moral was a huge problem. Worked there for 18 years.

Productive work environment

-Go out and make sure things are running smoothly in the city. -Get jobs for the day and complete them. -All depends on where you are and what you are doing for the day, but it usually is relaxed and not stressful.

Repetitive Union Based Work

The parks division is very unorganized making day to day work sometimes difficult. The workplace was overall decent making days go by quickly, the hardest part of the day was just getting to work.

It's good if you're a robot

Don't ever be late. Don't get sick too often. Certainly don't care about your job because that isn't what they want. Do what you're told and never show initiative. as far as your co-workers go you're either in the in crowd or you're not. not a good place for anyone with a mental disability.

Easy un-rewarding work

It was very easy working with the city, but did not offer many rewarding challenges. It was hard to go to work knowing nothing I was going to do was going to be a challenge.
