Lowest paid lifeguards in Canada making barely over minimum wage for a job that required taking special courses that cost a lot of money to attend. Heavily biased on what shifts people get to work and do not receive any benefits for working there.

Some departments seem to be better than others as far as a work life balance goes. Different rules for different people. Not all, but some management don’t really have time to have meetings or articulate what they actually need. There are some “lifers” that seem to get preferential treatment but don’t really know how to do their job or treat people. If one can get past the screening for an interview for a term position that’s only one part of the battle, the next part is getting the permanent position, which again you have to interview for and there are no points for you if you have been doing the job for sometime already, it’s just a free for all again in the process and you better make sure you ace that interview. Compensation is very good, wages and benefits package are fantastic.

Worked at a wide range of Heavy and light duty equippment , which was used for road construction and repair. This equipment was also used for snow and ice removal.... Our management kept a well organized work place. with an excellent result of team work. hardest part of the job was dealing with weather conditions on snow and ice removal...... The most enjoyable part of the job was working as crew chief which involved working along with management , union and fellow workers,,,,,,This created a new experience everyday.....
Pros
shift premiums, benifits, and overtime hrs
