A place to meet new friends
I always felt welcomed by my peers. Having people around you enjoyed and knew you could trust really helped in stressful situations. You always knew if something went wrong someone would have your back.

Great time
Lifeguards are more than just good swimmers. They are water rescue professionals trained in emergency care. They prevent accidents. They identify hazards and determine safe practices. They educate the public about the hazards and risks associated with aquatic activities and how to be Water Smart®. And they are trained to spot potential trouble and intervene before it becomes life-threatening.

Fun Team environment
I worked on the horticulture crew over the summer of 2019, This was a sometimes slow job, and extremely repetitive. Even so, this was my favourite job as of yet, with a superb team and management the summer flew by. Would recommend.

Part time casual Librarian Aide
Working for the City of St. Albert was a rewarding experience. The job description offered me many learning opportunities and advancement to a position where more responsibilities and skills were acquired. Casual part time hours allowed me to pursue other interests.

Was a great place to work over the summer while on break from school. Met lots of great people and the City is very flexible. Great place to work for students.

Good pay, Management does not care.
While the pay is decent (other cities/counties pay more) the work culture and management could be better. shift coverage is next to impossible and as a worker it is very clear that you are expendable. sometimes OH&S and AHS protocols are not followed (Management and front line staff at fault).

St.Albert Transit great place to screw the pooch.
I work here ... lots of drama...I love drama. Plus my team leader loves working here because hes a slave driving C u n t that has his own paid swimming schedule. Things need to change.
Pros
A manager that gives us a thumbs up and calls us men of steal (gay?)
Cons
But no freebie swimming lessons unless your a transit team leader

Flexible, enjoyable job
Worked as a lifeguard, and the position came with lots of flexibility. Managers were nice, if not a bit disorganized at times. Was expected to work hard, but paid very well for the work we did.
Pros
Good wage
Cons
High expectations

I enjoyed working here
The atmosphere is certainly a lot more laid back than other places I've worked in the past, and for me that makes it leaps and bounds more enjoyable than all the other jobs I've had. You're not pressed to finish as fast as you can but you are still expected to complete your job within a reasonable amount of time; so there are less errors being made in misdiagnoses and rushed labor. Overall I think the calmness of the workplace greatly influences how productive the people in the garage are, which in turn keeps them happy to work.
Pros
productive & supportive workplace

Emergency Services
The worst management I have ever worked for. Managers are not qualified to Manage or lead. City does not care. They have you complete management surveys. Supervisor scores low on survey and somehow they get promoted. They burn out employees and staff turn over is endless. Experienced employees are responsible for training new employees over and over. Would never tell anyone I care about to apply here.
Pros
Salaried pay, job security
Cons
Toxic environment, poor management

Good Organization
St.Albert has a solid management group and leadership team. Turn over of employees seems to be the main concern. Pay is fair to good. There is no real chance of advancement in the next 8 or so years. The Team Leads are set and very comfortable in their roles

Great managment, fun workplace
I would spend my shifts teaching different levels of swimming lessonsto children and adults. There were several different kinds of classes meant for different ages and swimming levels. There were several other instructors and lifeguards that were their to help me. The managent was hands on and they were always availble for assistance. I enjoyed working here because I would be active for my hour shift and the time would fly.
Pros
meaningful work, working with children, active work
Cons
dealing with difficult parents of swimmers
