Best company I have ever worked for

Management was not afraid to back his employees up when nobody else would. Respectful work environment and worked with a great group of guys, that were fun to be around. All of the employees knew what their job was and did it very well. The customer service was outstanding, always willing to help in whatever way we could. The hardest part of the job was learning all of the little towns and which bus goes where. STC was a great company, and this province will miss it.

Pros

1 hour luches, friendly employees

Cons

you meet some irritating and unruly customers

Worked in pool area

The hardest part of working for the City of Saskatoon was cleaning the pool with the vaccumn. Arrived at work, empty the garbage, added chemicals to pool filter, janitorial work, event set up and clean up. The most enjoyable part of the job was working and meeting with new people. Managment was always available whenever I had a question or concern.

Pros

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.

Productive an fun work place

Normal working day except few days. More experience on how to intereact with the community/public and contractor. Ability to manage assigned project effectively. Hardest part of the job is when one have to work on various weather conditions. Workplace culture is wonderful. The most enjoyable part of the job is when one have to share experience with fellow colleagues.

Cons

Management was in cooperative Could be hard to please all Civic Employees

Hardest part of the job was almost always having an audience and getting orders from subordinates. Management was close minded and unwilling to listen to concerns

Productive and fun workplace

Enjoyable place to work. Lots of breaks. Good management. The city focuses on safety. It is our number one priority. The job can take longer as long as everything is done safely

Recreation 8 - Available Part Time

Trusted with nothing, asked to do lowest level of work or sometimes nothing at all. Often sit on my hands during shifts because there are no duties to be done beyond minding the facility.

High stress environment

The desire to ensure the customer is always right above and beyond established policies and procedures creates a stressful work environment. The corporation as a whole also tends to be reactive instead of proactive

Pros

Wage allows me to earn a decent living. My immediate supervisor is fantastic

Cons

Lack of support from management
