Awful management

Safety only matters when Ministy is aroundUpper management uses the municipality like their own playground, favorites only getting the good positions. Don't need any experience to get promoted to a supervisor position. Well being of an employee is not even considered




Horrible place to work

Good opportunity for growth

The division I worked in was in a field that has struggled with adequate ministry funding, staffing and at times, challenging ministry regulations. Salary and benefits were good, especially for the area, but the high demands of the LTC field sometimes detracted from that. I was fortunate to have many opportunities over the years with CK to expand my knowledge and spread my wings, taking on new projects and gaining new experiences. Ultimately my career has been able to take a turn down a different path to the HR field as a result, which I am very grateful for. My time with CK, although very stressful and challenging at times, was well worth it.

Productive enjoyable work environment

Fair work environment with a good team of coworkers and caring responsible supervisors. Variety of tasks to be done each day, with the most difficult tasks being evenly divided amongst the team not just placed on the lowest seniority workers.

Exciting place to work!

It was a great experience and it taught me a lot. It was an ideal stepping stone in my career advances. Although, I was just an intern I was given a significant amount of responsibility and was respected throughout the department.

Overall, would recommend

Good workplace that is slightly understaffed and has a few organizational issues. Good student job with many nice people. Pays decently well, however, does not cover costs of certain trainings and uniforms that other employers normally would.

Great Pay, Benefits Great team to work with!

Remuneration is excellent. Applying for a job is excruciating painful. Must completed a career profile that must tailor your resume to match the answers you provide. Experience, competency and skills not as important as a University degree.

Horrible work experience

Loved the job... management, however, was horrible. Absolutely no help from HR - if anything, they made it worse. It's been a few years and I still see the same things happening there.

Best place to work, if you can get in

This place really knows how to take care of their employees. 8 hour days, Monday to Friday, work is always different. Management is great, sometimes it can get a bit political, but you learn to deal with it.

Good Benefits

Decent place to work. Good benefits, pay is ok. 3 weeks holidays after 4 years. Tough to move ahead if you are not in the old boys club or Friday night social group.

Good Environment to work in day-to-day

The day to day work environment was good. I learned excellent customer service skills. Anylitical problem solving skills were honed. The most enjoyable part of the job was working inter-departmentally with co-workers.


Laid back office environment


If Management doesn't like you, you are doomed

Fun and rewarding summer student position

This was a wonderful job made available to students in the municipality for summer employment. Working as an ambassador to the town was rewarding and there was always something to do to make our town look and feel better!


Close to home, in the heart of the community


Some days much longer than others, more maintenance and physical labour than expected
