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

Cons

public are mildly hostile to city workers

Great place to work

I enjoy my current position at the city, the kinship I have with coworker and supervisor makes my job easier and it is a great place to work. The work that I do maintaining the water treatment is different on a daily bases as it could be as easy as emptying out the truck to working on the pump system. I enjoy working for the city due to the advancement and training, it is just the salary.

Pros

four ten hour shifts

Cons

pay is not enough

City of Saskatoon

I love my job and all the great people I work with. However, I was hired for a Temp Position for 3 months. I have been extended month by month with no sense of security. I have been told by many (including my Supervisor that I'm doing a great job. She said that she would love to keep me, if she could. I have been applying for every position that I think relates to my experience. I would really like to continue my employment here with The City of Saskatoon, I'm just feeling discouraged by the seniority, and hiring policies.

Pros

Great salary, and EDO's

Cons

Paying for parking everyday

Great place to work, though policies can get out of hand at times.

I really enjoyed my supervisors and co-workers. I had a lot of fun with them. Having the responsibility to be professional took its toll at times, as patrons expected different responses as I was inclined to give. Sometimes I did not receive adequate information on how to deal with certain situations, but in these times I had a respectful supervisor to aid me. All in all, a great work experience.

Pros

Great supervisors, co-workers and atmosphere.

Cons

Dealing with patrons at times deemed difficult.

Helpful and friendly work place

It was a valuable experience as an intern student to work with the city. Everyone at work was friendly and always willing to help or point me toward the right direction for it. The work environment and culture were great with some flexibility. It was an enjoyable and eye opening experience to talked to some of the senior engineers and learned from their experience.

Great Leaning Opportunity

City of Saskatoon allowed for me to build my skills in management to better further myself. My days varied - no day was the same with what was needed to be done. The management was not always clear as to what they wanted from their team. Co-workers were great, often stressed and overworked. The hardest part of the job was the management The most enjoyable part were the co-workers.

Pros

Great Benefits and Wage

Cons

Poor Management
