Social Worker Supervisor/Designate Health Director (Former Employee) – Vernon, BC – 18 September 2017
as a band member I expected more from leadership. Okanagan Indian Band is a closed community and I had expected more support for band members. Management did not understand the culture of First Nations and were not willing to look at traditional conflict resolution practice
Director of Public Works and Housing (Former Employee) – Vernon, BC – 27 May 2016
There are great people, some amazing employees to work with. Everyone is overworked and underpaid, however. The political climate is intense, and the direction is scattered and usually unrealistic. Don't expect a long term position, but if you can handle the pressure and are ok with a 2 year term then the community members make it worth it.
