Low morale, limited resources, overworked employeesMy experience with working with the City of Vernon was not overly positive. Many positions are not being filled, some 35% are currently not being filled by qualified applicants. The result is, the remaining staff have to pick up the slack and do the positions that aren't being filled. The result is burnt out staff members with low morale. This has been going on for awhile now. I left this corporation and would not recommend this corporation to anybody who wants rewarding long term employment. The only positive thing is, the pay and benefits are great. They pay well compared to many jobs in the Okanagan as overall there are very few companies that pay as well as the City of Vernon.

Loved my jobThis specific job was just offered to me over the phone after past employment with the City of Vernon. I really enjoyed it, I didn’t have an interview for this job although i’m sure most of the jobs for the Cit of Vernon require an interview. I loved working for the city alongside the Bylaws! Probably one of the funnest jobs I’ll ever have!!

Horrible management and sub standard municipal guardsWorst place to work. Horrible job security and bad morale everywhere. Overworked employees. Horrible managers who don’t care about you, as they are just worried about their own job security. Guards who work in the jail are poorly trained, immature, lazy and all have bad attitudes towards management. Everyone within the city of Vernon knows the jail there is plagued with a very long history of problems with personnel and management. Management in charge of the area don’t know how to properly manage this area yet they are in charge of it. Makes no sense whatsoever but that’s how it is. I would not recommend this position. Too many problems, bad culture negative work environment. No job security. The city is quick to fire people and wait for the law suits to follow. Basically a don’t care attitude management has towards employees. Just lip service non genuine people managing there. Lots of backstabbing and gossip high school environment.

LifeguardingMy experience with working with the City of Vernon was indeed a positive experience. Protocol and duties were straight-forward, and flexibility of hours was exceptional. Management was negotiable, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed being an employee of the City of Vernon.
