Rigid workplace with detailed expectations

Lifeguarding is a good fit to get through university. Through my time with the City I watched the work environment gradually increase in micromanagement of employees' time. However not all personality types are suited to both interacting with the public, and teaching children to swim. It is a very involved job.

Friend;ly work place

The salary is great and the co-workers and supervisors are very friendly. It is a place that one can develop his or her career. They organised internal training for staff at all times.

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.

A real eye opener

I worked for 6 years as a para transit bus driver. It was extremely difficult job to be good at. The schedules were virtually impossible to keep up with. Dealing with clients with physical and mental issues can be a very scary thing. Management did not back the drivers ever when there were complaints from clients. High stress

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.

Good place to work, not enough hours

The environment was good, the people were great, the job was fun. The only problem was the hours were minimal because it was teaching kids how to skate and it was on the opposite side of town as me. So going all the wa over there for 4 days of the week for an hour - an hour and a half at a time was not worth it. No problems with management or the job. Good for people who are on that side of town and are looking for a first job.

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.

City of Saskatoon was a great place to work, training for departments was excellent, many areas for advancement.

The people, work, and training is well implemented with opportunities for advancements. Would still be working there, however due to relocation to Winnipeg, was not able to stay..

Summer Position - pays well

Very fun and a site manager as the job duties were vast and never had a dull moment. City workers are always treated well and the compensation is fantastic. Only con would be that it is unionized.

Need to be able to handle stressful situations

time management is a major task at this employer, working a lot of hours and split shifts are required. working alone and handling many different situations during your shift while working and dealing the public are the major factors in this job.

Fullfilling job with great financial benefits

With the amount of leisure facilities in the city, this is an awesome job for a person who doesn't like to stay in one place for long periods of time.
