Good workplace bad money

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Job was good the people where awsome to work with . The schedule was great. Benefits where ok . They don’t supply coveralls or work boots and the little allowance they offer won’t cover costs . Tool allowance is very minimal also won’t cover costs . And the pay is way to low hard to have a living

Pros

Time off

Cons

Can’t afford to do anything on days off

Productive and interesting workplace

The job was very interesting and provided me with great experiences. Working at Mistaken Point gave me a chance to deal with people from all walks of life while also learning more about my area.

Good Job

Working at the Provincial Goverment mailroom was a thoroughly positive experience. Not overly strenuous, good pay. Only flaw is the unionized nature of the workplace, very easy to get bumped from a job.

Pros

Fairly Easy, Good Pay, Comfortable Environment

Cons

Slight Lack of Job Security

Great Management and great pay

While working with the government of newfoundland, I had a great experience. My manager not only showed me new things but she was also very supportive. I would gladly work there again. In the run of an average day, the hours were fantastic, environment was comfortable. The only complaint was that was that it was very far to get to and from. The team I worked with were amazing.

Pros

great pay, very supportive environment, lots to learn.

Cons

only temporary. other than that it was a fantastic job!

Great place to work as a health professional. The office was small and quiet with a great working atmosphere.

Approximately 50-50 with field and office work. Sometimes long distances to travel for field inspections and sometimes have to accommodate travelling on short notice.

Pros

Paid travel and accommodations when required.

Cons

Use personal vehicle for work and quickly accumulate kms.

Good Job

People are nice and respectful of others. A good place to work. Stable, secure and reasonable pay. At times it became repetitive and boring. The work is not exactly fun so make sure you're being located with people you like.

very heavy workload

There was not enough time for client interaction do to the heavy call and case load. I am a more hands on social worker and I did not enjoy the call center feel of the position

Ok place to work.

Management is good where I work, the hardest part is not being challenged by the position. The most enjoyable part is the freedom we experience on a daily basis.

Pros

Ability to learn new things

Cons

Pay is not enough to live on
