Manager of Compliance (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 January 2018
Due to the size of the work force the employer offers many job opportunities. They promotes a working culture of respect and equal opportunities for all its employes. The employer also promotes an enviroment of education within the government structure and also opportunities to advance your skill sets with the undertaking of further education at a shared or full expense.
On the rare occasion they employ unqualified Management.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 January 2018
I loved working here. The people are great and management was excellent.Only reason I moved on was the lack of advancement opportunities. Salary increases were few and when they did happen it had to go through a lot of red tape to be approved.
salary increases and advancement opportunities lacking
Lots of security and good pay, huge amount of red tape
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 January 2018
Good pay and good security, but the mountain of red tape when it came to getting anything done was ridiculous. Don't try to innovate or optimize work as you'll get put in your place for making others look bad.
Records Coordinator (AS IV) (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 October 2017
In my current position working with the File Room Management team with Service Alberta as a Records Coordinator has helped build my skills in records management. It provides good opportunity to build on my analytical skill and project management. It also allows creativity in resolving issues arising from legacy issues on certain records.
Consultant (Contract) (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 September 2017
GoA is a good place to work but it's only as good as the management team who are directing it. Service Alberta is very political and the Directors only support furthering their own agendas, surround themselves with "Yes" people and promote long time friends/acquaintances into roles they are unfit for. The Directors at Service Alberta don't care much for contractors who do all the heavy lifting on the projects while the full time employees sit back and give direction.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 September 2017
Not a bad career choice depending on what office you end up working in. My manager was terrible and so we had no team morale. There was no team building. You were discouraged to have conversations with co-workers except if it was about work. I was bullied by my manager and she made it very difficult to want to go to work.
Great job security and opportunities for advanceement
Employment Standards Agent (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 September 2017
Fantastic employer with great benefits and pay. Flex time and other work/family arrangements helped enable a positive working environment along with frequent awards and accolades provided by upper management.
