Working as a camp counselor with the City of St. John's is a great job for students. You make better pay than the other camps in the city and there are many different locations to fit your needs.

This is not actually a job. I am only requested to leave this review because of a quirk in Indeed's pdf analysis program, due to my resume upload displaying training and work experience together

City of St. John's was a great place to work, as you learn many different jobs before getting a permanent job in a department. The people were great to work with, the pay was really good, and the prospect of advancement was very good.
Pros
Learn different skills with every job.
Cons
Shorter work day than most jobs.

The training program was excellent for the short period of time that it took place. I learned about socializing more with the people around me. I enjoyed the way it encouraged confidence.

Not a bad place to work, but maybe not the most challenging place if you are looking for a fast placed environment. A typical government employer, security, but less pressure to preform.
Pros
Great work life balance
Cons
Not overly challenging
