Seasonal worker, good people, fair days work.
Could be a super post career job. Outside all day, clean air and park assignments. Younger managers are taking over with the retirement of senior ones now leaving. Enjoyed year one.

It was a good job working with good peo
They treated their employees very well and were very accommodating with work hours. The over all hourly wage was great and the hours were very good for someone with a busy schedule or a student, weather theyre a student in highschool or post secondary.
311 Operator in Winnipeg, MB
Good place to start if you are young
I worked as a CSR for 311. I learned a lot about the City of Winnipeg. The job itself was very stressful. You had to answer calls for all the City Departments. Citizen who called were generally upset about something. They called expecting to speak to a member of a certain department and instead got a 311 operator. The pay did not match up to the amount of information you had to know or access to relay to the citizen. (26 or so different departments to answer for) The pay at $13.90/hr was not a living wage. The benefits were great but it didn’t make up for the low pay. The training was long but very little training on the phones. My training class started out with 25 people. By the time I left the job 6 months later, only 4 from that training were still working at 311. The hours were all over the place. It made it difficult to arrange around a school schedule or to have another job. If you want to get your foot in the door to work for the City, 311 is not the best way. It is an ok job if you are very young or this is your first job. But if you are supporting a family, not good. They required (at the time) 311 operators to work at 311 for a year before applying for other jobs at the City. The management and higher ups seemed very unhappy and the atmosphere at 311 was somber. There was little interaction with coworkers and generally a depressing place to be. It was not a great experience.
Information Officer in Winnipeg, MB
Overall it was a great experience.
Working for the City of Winnipeg was a great experience.
There calls we took varied from informing a citizen about the road closure to informing them about the amount they owed on their property tax.
