Not a great place to wirk
Green Teem worker. (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB15 November 2019
At first it semed good , then you get to know the people who work with you there on a daly basis, lots of teem rivalry between everyone , toxic environment , crime and drug abuse with workers . The good thing was that the company supplys all the proper work clothing and accessories.

Disgusting job for no pay
Green Team Member (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB12 November 2019
An average day would consist of blasting feaces vomit and urine off of every street and backlane imaginable for between $12-$14hour (absolutely disgusting) while only getting 35 hour work weeks all while navigating the bums who constantly are attacking employees in which the company can’t protect

Very favouritism
Watch Ambassador (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB9 August 2019
The job it’s self is great, interacting with everyone downtown and dealing with high stressed calls. Unfortunately the Biz lacks management and leadership and will only promote you if you don’t voice your opinion. The Watch program had 1 supervisor and 3 team leads but with a huge number of employees quitting at has taken the Watch over 4 months just to fill the team leads spot, that being said the hiring process is very slow.

Co-workers where fun to be with and career driven that help me to push towards education and finding a well suited career. The enjoyable part of the job was meeting people and interacting with them to help them with their needs and concerns about the downtown environment.

Stressful job but Interesting
Presently volunteering (Current Employee) –  Winnpeg, MB24 June 2012
As a downtown watch volunteer is kind a stressful job because i have to walk around downtown. I have to look intoxicated person,an aggressive pandhandler, a person who are sleeping in the street. I have to help people who are missing and giving a description to supervisor and all staff. I also give people direction in downtown area for their safety. My co-worker are also good, they're friendly. They're all staff and I'm a volunteer.The hardest part of the job is handling an intoxicated person because they're aggressive and they're not in right mind. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people around downtown and giving direction.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
long hours with over-time
