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

working outside

Cons

getting up at 4 am

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

Normal working hours except few days

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

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

gym supervisor

Easy work but with only 4 hours given per week or even 2 weeks this is super unsustainable for serious workers. The pay is slightly above average with decent benefits surprisingly.

Productive, important work

Went out with surveyors to various contract sites around the city to ensure contractors were up to engineering standards. Mostly road-work, ensuring that sewer and storm pipes were put in place properly, but dealt with land development a little too. Well-organized, fun and casual workplace among the surveyors.

Pros

discounts on civic centre memberships

Cons

public are mildly hostile to city workers
