Productive and enjoyable respectful work place, supported and respected by upper management, a great place to work, good opportunities for advancement.
Respectful and enjoyable working environment
They prefer hiring external candidates so don't expect to be able to move into a different position that suits your qualifications and career goals. If you are educated you can find way better jobs with higher salaries outside.
useless experience, lots of politics, no opportunities for advancement
- highly detailed work that requires consentration and accuracy throughout the day. - I have learned a great deal about Property Taxes in Vancouver. - Management are very approachable and open to hear any suggestions you might have. - It can get a little stressful with customer complaints about their taxes but we always bounce back and work together as a team. - unhappy customers - doing my job accurately and keep buing my desk up to date.
working as a team
extreemly busy during tax due dates which can lead to longer hours
Top heavy with a lot of managers that don't seem to do anything, and the Engineering and HR department both have a team of Safety Specialist, yet none are encouraged to practice their specialty and with limited field safety, so not sure what 9/10th of them do? Lots of issues working here, people with a strong work ethic need not apply.
Great place to work , lots of room for advancement however goes by seniority so it may take a while. Living wage is not sustainable for Vancouver living. You start at the bottom if you get hired into street operations department so expect to use a wheel barrel and w To work hard
colleagues are very supportive and self motivated. manager is very flexible and good listener. remote work is available twice a week if the position is IT related or office work. good benefits. systems are bit outdated.
good work colleagues and manager

This could be an amazing place to work because of the staff and environment but union attitude and management seem to stifle staff attitudes. But the staff is great and their comrade wry keeps them going
Great people and shows good hourly pay
Never a set time off
I learned quickly that it was fast paced using both telephone and computer systems to handle citizens questions with attention to detail and correctly responding.The work atmosphere was always positive. Co workers and superiors were always willing to help and easily accessible to ask for assistance. Hardest part of the job may have been building the confidence to speak with authority. I gained a lot of knowledge about how municipality's operated. I enjoy the daily challenge of resolving customer inquiries.
Keeping in mind my day started at 2 am.I would open the building and start right away we had three floors to clean .By 6.30 the building would open so all the important stuff had to be cleaned.The bad part about the job was such an early start.Most enjoyable part was leaving early.Good management always keep me in the loop.I liked it because I was responsible for bsw. work.
This is a terrible place to work for managers are lacking basic knowledge of how to treat staff if you are a lucky soul They will treat you Well until the are ready to spit you out, very nasty organization was very surprised they acted the way They did, so glad I left very toxic environment, union cupe is a joke as well.
