Job knowledge. Responsibilities taken away.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
No support. Only negative support. Confused as to what the job entails. Job description changes without being notified. No meetings with foreman, only when something went wrong.

Pros

Good money

Cons

Bad hours. But livable.

Positive, safe environment

I love working at the County of Simcoe as a Logistics Technician for the paramedics. It's unfortunate that the policy regarding certain medical procedures has forced me on unpaid leave. I am hopeful this will soon be corrected!

Dont trust anyone you work with even management

Very toxic, management does not care, co workers just talk about everyone behind their backs, even management. You do not get any perks that the office staff have.

Pros

There really arent any

Cons

The whole solid waste dept.

Great place to work

Worked part time in Service Simcoe. Excellent supervisor and fantastic manager. Hours, wage, job role were all wonderful. Only wished I hadn’t moved out of the area, as I would have stayed. Loved my job

Cons

Nothing

Working the weekends with no one else in the office other than my partner

Very ittle training. Much confusion amongst management. Policies & Procedures confusing, with no manual to refer to, Constant emails that you can't get through with the phones ringing non stop. Emails containing pertinent information. Very sneaky and underhanded when it comes to hiring full time, mainly the favourites get the job. Lots of gossiping and talking behind peoples back. Force you to work when sick. Lots to say, but I'll stop there.

Pros

Money

Cons

not treated equal

Not a good employer

Worked there several years & it was a very stressful environment & management was very racist &judgmental. As a person of colour I did not feel welcome I felt as if I was always less of a worker then everyone else. When I brought it forward several times I was dismissed by management. A formal complaint has been lodged.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Security and u ion doesn’t do anything

Negative Work Environment

Long hours that were not compensated, promised to be mentored and instead thrown in the deep end and left to drown. Work place culture is toxic; no positive feedback or encouragement. Management not willing to move forward and desire employees that will not question things or have new ideas. If they do not like you for what ever the reason they will find a way to force you out the door instead of firing you. They encourage their management to use bullying and intimidating tactics to get what they want. High turn over of leadership in certain sectors.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

non supportive collegaues, dishonest management

Constantly surrounded by kind and hard-working people

My experience was nothing but positive at this organization. The employers and co-workers are all motivated, easy-going and kind. The tasks are physically challenging, but the collaborative atmosphere makes working fun and worthwhile.

Workplace

I was working with them as a Research Assistant. The work Culture is nice and quiet. People at The County of Simcoe are very friendly. Since day one you will feel like home. Working with them was a very rewarding thing for me.

Generally positive experience.

Work culture was fairly positive. Benefits and pension were a plus but maybe a little behind other municipal bodies. I felt the pay level was substandard for the industry.

competitive wages

Over all great place to work with competitive wages. It can be stressful as it is very fast paced but it is worth it as the extra hours are available if wanted and the wages are competitive. Very professional place to work.

Cons

fast-paced

Great facility and job stability

I really enjoyed the small gym facility offered at the administration centre. This job allowed for a great learning experience for me. The staff I worked with in the HR department were all very friendly and easy to work with.

Not a bad place to be part time or casual

Employees are far over worked or have to work short a lot which creates stress and tension. Pay is decent. Hours are pretty crazy and all over - hard to balance Some management is great and involved. Residents are well taken care of and cared about. Good/hard working employees

Pros

knowing youre providing good care, decent pay

Cons

stress and tension, hard to balance

Excellent place to work, even for a temp contract

Great place to work, was treated great by management and other employees. They would work with me with any time off needed, and appreciated the work you put in. I will try and pursue a full time job there eventually as their culture is fantastic.

Pros

Work environment, management, culture, incentives, benefits

great team

I love this job ! the management and my team are compared to non. I have the ability to share my knowledge and that knowledge is respected and used in all situations. The support given by my supervising nurses is like non I have ever had in my 18 years of working as a PSW. The training I receive is above all that I have ever gotten in all my years in health care. Our job focus is behaviors in LTC, but the training we receive is broad training for all aspects of the residents that we deal with. This is truly my dream job and I am so grateful to have been chosen to join the team.

Pros

a valued part of the team

Cons

Pay isnt compareable to LTC
