Seasonal Labourer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 10 October 2017
Working for the City of Vancouver was a great experience, I learned a lot of different things I never know before. I learned how to build sidewalks, where the wiring for all the overhead lights like intersection lights is and lastly how to pave roads with asphalt.
Enjoyable work environment - issues with management
Theatre Attendant II (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 August 2017
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.
Union wages, enjoyable atmosphere
inconsistent hours, extreme availability requirement with no guarantees
Rink Attendant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 January 2017
A typical day working at the City of Vancouver involves interacting with the public who use the rink facilities as well as working together with coworkers to maintain the skate shops at the city rinks. We are also there to ensure everyone is safe in participating in skating and lessons.
