Co-op Student in Vaughan, ON
on 7 January 2021
Treated as an equal
They knew I was a co-op student and I was there to learn, but they still treated me like I was an integral part of their workforce. This allowed me to really get the hands-on experience I was looking for from the work-term.
Labourer in Vaughan, ON

No room for advancement
Unless you know someone, are apart of the boys club or brown nose your way in there, there is no your going to get full time. There are people there that have worked for them for 10+ years and have not got full time.On top of all that they pay on the lower end for municipal work. There's no benefits package, and they expect you to work the full duration of your contract without any days off. They make us pay Union dues every paycheck but the union doesn't do anything for us. They think they're doing you a huge favour by employing you (yes I understand jobs can be hard to comeby these days) but in reality they would crumble without any of their temp workers.The equipment is dated, they keep so many old trucks instead of retiring them and getting new ones, they use farming equipment for plowing the sidewalks. Maybe if they stop handing out 150k+ jobs like candy and invest it back into their workforce it wouldn't be so bad. I was there for 5+ years and it has just gone steadily down hill every time I went back.It's probably really easy to get in there now, since they lose all of their good workers one way or another. My suggestion is use it as an avenue for something better, or what I would really suggestion is look elsewhere entirely.
Manager in Vaughan, ON
on 2 June 2021
Leadership can't decide on a direction
Life at the City of Vaughan is a revolving door. Senior leadership keeps changing - if not the actual people, then the ones who stay change their minds and instructions all the time. It makes working there feel chaotic, unprofessional, and if you're not part of the "in" crowd, you'll get thrown under the bus in a heartbeat.It's too bad. Some people and departments try really hard to do good work, but senior leadership always manages to ruin everything. There's a huge gap between how great Vaughan could be, versus how it actually is.

Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor in Vaughan, ON
on 12 December 2020
Great work to get started in the field
I had a great time here, it was a fun job where I could meet people and learn about the profession of fitness and exercise. I liked this job and the work, my only complaint is that they should have had online group meetings as I missed a mandatory meeting on the weekend due to sleeping in and a long commute, so I lost the job.
