Halton Region is a great place to learn and apply your skills if you have a good team and supervisor. Accounting department has to hire employees frequently as no one can feel appreciated. I see the same posting 2 times a year as the team is it good.

Working with the team at the Region of Halton, Allendale was fun. For most times the staff work as a team and we had lots of fun. The work was very challenging at times but very rewarding caring for residents and for most times their families appreciated the care their loved ones received. Management usually have pop up visits on the night shift and usually come in during the night shift to host staff meetings and celebrate special events. I have never felt left out of any events held at Allendale.
Pros
Great staff recognition service program

Halton Region is a great place to work and to gain knowledge about your field of study. As a student who worked there, they did a great job in further educating us and having employees from other divisions explain their role and answer any questions we had.

Management is awful, dismissive, undermining. Nurses and PSWs are solely treated as a number. Cannot talk to management about any problems within the job. Bullies work here HR and administration are useless

As a former resident and employee of Halton Region, I am quite impressed to experience and proud to deliver the quality of services that are so important to the community.
Pros
Annual mandatory (administrative services) closure between Christmas and New Years Dsy
Cons
Insufficient number of administrative support staff

The job itself is amazing, the friends a relationships and daily interaction was great. Everyone at surface level is what made this place move forward. Unfortunately it was never valued, and the morale suffered. The job was so engaging, but all management did was try to tear that apart. I saw so many good employees with vast knowledge leave, everyone was replaceable to Halton. I've never seen a management team ruin a working environment so much. I witnessed employees get bullied into submission. If you're employed  here I highly recommend you keep your mouth closed and dont challenge status quo. They're not interested in any ideas or changes, and you'll be black listed. If Halton revised management and cut the fat, and actually implemented a plan that engaged and made employees feel valued, this would be an amazing municipality to work for. Unfortunately at the moment they're driving it into the ground. Cant even keep new employees around long enough.

What a joke. Their HR personal is terrible and only care about themselves. Their very snobby especially the HR manager who should not be in HR as she has no people skills and doesnt cant answer emails. DO NOT work for the region. Bad experience.

The only quality about this employer that is positive is that they pay very well. However, in exchange you'll have to forgo your dignity, happiness and self-respect.

working here was only good for me because of one friend I made that made the environment tolerable. Management is not very motivating or encouraging... or friendly. other staff were.

Worked at the Service desk as a student for approx. 3.5-4 months. Colleagues are generally really chill and laid back, yet work hard, just the right balance.
