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.

left this position due to cultural unsafe work environment. I have nothing further to add regarding this. Its a unionized environment so filing a grievance is an option to address any employment issues that arise

The city of Vancouver is the worst company in the country to work for. Don't ever work for them. They do not care about you or your family and will abuse you until you quit.

Culture of workplace hostility. Promotion or career advancement based on lack of ethics and morality, not individual merit. A system of cronyism and nepotism to insulate management from taking any accountability.

They always say they're transparent with their employees but they're not. Toxic environment. They don't like employees who go above and beyond because it makes the rest of them look bad who are only there to put in their pensionable time. That's why it takes forever for the City to get things done. Managers try to rule by fear and not by knowledge.
Pros
pension
Cons
people who have no idea what they're doing

They will help you succeed at whatever goals you set for yourself! From Admin Assistant to Management, you can reach whatever career level you choose!

My colleagues and our patrons make our work environment amazing!
Every day is different and always includes customer service whether at the bars or in-house.

Unfortunately, we had a change in management a few years ago which could have been a great thing but has been a serious struggle, especially for those working on the management team.

As I am not on the management team, I thoroughly enjoy working there.
Pros
Union wages, enjoyable atmosphere
Cons
inconsistent hours, extreme availability requirement with no guarantees

Lame management. Advancement is minimal at best. Nepotism is very high. No regard for skill or previous experience. It's who you know and who 'likes' you.

Well i work 7.52hours a day and have been working for the city of Vancouver since 2008.
Everyday at work is a learning curve. There is always a new accident, or union matter or a national safety code compliance issue.

My management is extremely knowledgeable and supportive.
My team is very easy going and a fun environment. We all support each other.


The hardest part of my job is i live 1 hour away.


The enjoyable part of my job is the opportunity for me to meet and get to know all the managers and directors of the city of Vancouver. Also to learn about risk management which is connect to my department.
Pros
positive people and opportunity to learn and grow.
Cons
only two females work in my department
