Most of the bosses are bullies.Stressfull work environment.
Operator (Former Employee) –  Wetaskiwin, AB2 September 2018
Horrible place to work.Very little room for advancement.No loyalty to longtime employees.When you start making more money they start looking for ways to get rid of you.Poor morale among the hard working loyal staff.
The City has a bunch of clowns running the show.Where did the CEO and bosses up top get their so called credentials?Probably from a box of crackerjacks.City Council should really take a close look at who they have running things at City Hall.
Pros
Staff bbqs.
Cons
Won't Let you use your vacation and time in lieu when you want to.

very poor.
operator 1 (Current Employee) –  Wetaskiwin, AB2 October 2016
Working for the city of wetaskiwin is a trap. It is a tax target and you are in a really bad tax bracket. They pay you so little you are stuck working for them and the management sucks. Everything is micro managed and poorly at that. They hire pretty much anyone and don't fire anyone. I have been threatened at work and nothing was done about it. Very bad place to work.
Pros
Good Benefits.
Cons
To much to deal with for the pay. Hard on staff. Under staffed. Poor managment.
