this is the best regional district on the island to work for. I have worked for quite a few and really enjoyed the culture and management really seemed interested in employee health and wellness,

Little trust and no sense of team.

It was more about who you knew and not what you knew. Advancement not based based on merit. It often seemed that promotions were based on your connections. Priorities were unclear.

Not a good work environment

I wouldn't recommend this job to any real trades person. Not a good job management has no idea what they are doing. The less qualifications you have the further you will go. So if you have no motivation this is the job for you.

Great Place to Work

Great place to work, the people are friendly and accommodating and there is a lot of interesting work to be done. Management is open to new ideas and available to listen and roll up their sleeves.

Different leadership since I was there

The recreation department was a couple decades behind in processes and efficiencies but open for those who desire to take the reigns and make positive change.

Fun place to work with various duties

Great co-workers and customers. Lots of children of all ages. The ability to offer help in program props and activities. Office tasks vary so you never get board of your job.


Paid training.


Hard to move up when you're casual as permanent people get first dibs.

I worked at nanaimo for 4 months as a co op work term and I wish I had more things to do. Often I was busy pulling weeds around the buildings.. The plant was in the process of expanding.
