Green Team Member (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 24 October 2017
A typical day at work would be picking up garbage in the morning/ afternoon. I would then walk up Academy rd and weed the sidewalk/ flowerbeds. I would check in on shop workers and remove any glass from the sidewalk/road. I worked for 5 hours every day.
I learned how to appreciate nature more than I did before the job. I also learned about how much garbage id dropped every day.
The workplace was very helpful and positive for me.
The hardest part of the job was working outside when it was very hot and humid or when it was cold and rainy. On those days I could only do limited jobs.
The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to meet new people every day and become more confident.
Its a decent first job but there is a lack of communication which has resulted in us showing up on days where classes had been cancelled on more then one occasion, also since we are contract workers we almost never get payed on time.
