Occupational Health and Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 16 January 2019
The colleagues were great but beware of management. The management will segregate workers and harass them. If you attempt to stand up you will be written up and let go. The least healthy management I have ever had to work for in my 12+ years. I would suggest to stay private sector safety as OH&S doesn't have the power everyone thinks they do. Very few officers are able to give tickets, development is not encouraged but more frowned upon. The salary is mediocre at best compared to private sector. The only positive is the excess of vacation that you're able to take.
Executive Coordinator (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 11 October 2018
It's hard to rate what it's like working within government. I can say that working with the Ministry of Agriculture is wonderful. It is a workplace that deeply commits to its values, inclusion and culture.
Document Clerk (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 10 August 2018
This was a starting job. It has very nice benefits if you can afford to stay long enough emotionally and physically. The stress was not coming from the work, but from the management and some people. Management did not do any for people, whom work hard and on time. Instead, they choose their fervor. If you are not, no matter what you do. They will find excuses to point you out. Maybe that is why they have such high turnout rate.
Most co-workers are very nice; steady time and pay

Person (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 3 August 2018
Senior management is out of touch. They lack any true leadership and are only interested in themselves and supporting those in their circle. Professional development is non-existent. Lots of turnover and people leave often, all due to leadership. It's a decent stepping stone but you will beat your head against the wall. They don't want innovative minds, and if you think you have ideas for improvement, they will beat that out of you.
There are some amazing people in scope.
Leadership; they dont live by their values; professional development is not a thing

Client Service Consultant (Former Employee) – Meadow Lake, SK – 11 October 2017
Arrive at around 8:15 am each morning, check my emails and messages. i usually have clients booked with appointment. get ready for my client to show up. i learned that if you develop a good working relationship with your clients it really helps with their self esteem. they give more attention to their needs. the management was very supportive. the workplace culture was great, the hardest part about the job was not having client show up for their appointment, i try to think of new way to get them to come. the most enjoyable was seeing a client head of to work and knowing that he will do great in his new position.
Senior manager (Former Employee) – Regina – 7 October 2017
A typical work day hinges upon reading the moods of senior management. Immediate dismissal is very real. Many managers are young inexperienced and very arrogant. The workplace culture is full of politics, and this is the hardest part of the job. There is an immense amount of work, resources are shrinking, and expectations are going up. An organisation that should be avoided.
