An excellent place to work

This employer is an excellent place to work. Fair compensation for the work performed. They provide excellent benefits and the Union has a good contract for the City Workers.

ok

it was alright, not the best experience. jobs tend to take advantage of teenagers since they don't know what standards should be met due to lack of experience.... had i known there were much better jobs out there, i wouldve quit this boring job way sooner.

Poor Management.

Senior management was hard to work for. Some directors were under qualified for their positions. Made bad decisions based on poor understanding of key issues! Also other directors formed a "good old boys/girls club"!

Pros

A lot of great people work for the City.

Cons

Bad management.

Nice building and good grounds

Close to the park and the lake. People who worked there were easy to get along with. Had coffee free everyday. Nice big windows in some of the offices give you day light while you're at work.

Seeing a massive project grow from the beginning to end

Starting this position, there was the General Manager and myself. I was responsible for the senior administration and setting up of a newly formed office. We reported to a volunteer Board of Directors, who led us to hosting the 2008 Arctic Winter Games, in Yellowknife. The best part of this position, was creating new templates, procedures,meeting new people, building community relations and seeing the Games grow to over 2400 volunteers. I received a promotion in September 2006, as the Volunteer Coordinator. I worked with all of our divisions (IT, Security, Accreditation, Special Guests, Volunteer & Protocol, Accommodations, Food Services, Sport Technical, Marketing, Fundraising) in ensuring their volunteer requirements were met. I also helped form our registration/accreditation online registration/accreditation system. This position made me realize my potential and that hard work goes a long way. The hardest part was after the Games and realizing that it was over.

Pros

Challenging, fast paced and meeting new people.

Cons

A term position once the Games were over.

co-workers

some coworkers are the best you could hope for.... The management seems to be entranced in the past and do not seem to understand that they work for the residents of the City and have an old boys club that may not be the best overall for the workers and residents.
