Low morale, limited resources, overworked employees

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
My 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.

Pros

good pay and benefits

Cons

Overworked employees and low morale in all departments

Horrible management and sub standard municipal guards

Worst 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.

Pros

Excellent pay pension and benefits

Cons

Horrible managers running the place

Used to be wonderful.

At one time it was a wonderful place to work with great morale. The job itself was challenging but never would I miss a day for any reason. Times change with new self involved managers reinventing the wheel. Not all managers are created equal beware of those who dictate instead of collaborate.

Pros

Pay and benefits

Cons

Self involved Management ruined morale.
