Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 1 August 2018
Union based. Quotas are really low to achieve and exceeding them gets you in trouble. Lost my job because I wanted to excel. Let go days before my 3 month period was almost finished so they could fire me with no cause.
Infrastructure Analyst (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 31 July 2018
A typical day at work for me would be to arrive at 8:09 and work on work that has been assigned to me throughout the day. Some of the work I do is research on projects, which I do enjoy. I do not get to interact with the public as much in my job as I did in previous positions. I miss this a lot as I like to work with others and help and guide them.
Typically, throughout the day, I will take breaks often to get away from the computer. Sitting is too hard on the body and being an active person like myself, I need to move around a lot.
The work I do is very interesting as it deals with managing the assets of the City. I never realized how much Infrastructure we have in our City. Maintaining this Infrastructure is important as we need to have make sure the services we offer are in good working condition.
Productive workplace with many advancement opportunities
Parks Department Laborer and Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 3 May 2018
While this is not where I chose to work for the rest of my life as I find myself more suited to the IT field, the 3 years I spent there were amazing. Absolutely great people. The required duties and assigned work were definitely fulfilling, and a good challenge at times. Working outside all summer long is a great experience that I will never forget. I highly recommend working for them if you are a student looking to make some extra cash, or even someone who is genuinely interested in horticulture and park maintenance. These people take their job very seriously and strive to upkeep the parks and garden areas for the citizens in the area.
Staff breakfasts, full time hours, good benefits upon full time employment.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 30 August 2017
i loved the environment except one thing that I was working alone so my management will never able to know my abilities and they have to judge me on some random basis as they never worked with me physically.
Custodian/Maintenance (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 5 May 2017
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.

The most enjoyable part of the job is when one have to share experience with fellow colleagues.
