Worked over the summer when I was a student
Groundskeeper (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON1 July 2014
Because I loved the nature of the work being a groundskeeper, it was a great summer. We had a good lead hand, performed tons of tree removal at the request of the security department. Naturally, the budget just wasn't there to keep our equipment running well. Once the truck's door no longer stayed latched closed, we lost the ability to use a truck altogether (it was unsafe to operate, but they would not have it fixed).

I loved what I did and the team I worked with, but the college expected us to perform near-miracles on a shoestring budget.

The government paid the majority of our wages ($12/hr) and the college kicked in an extra $2/hr, which means that we performed the work of a tree removal team for several weeks and the college got away with having to pay very little for what would be an expensive service had the work been contracted out.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Not enough budget allocated to do a great job
