It had the best of times and the worst of times.
volunteer instructor (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 19 February 2019
Instructing programs can be challenging as group dynamics and required time lines can often go astray.
Average 9 hr day.
Equipment is generally good condition, fellow contractors are pleasant and staff at branch ranged from stellar to dismal.
I learned that provincial often didn't hold true to their word when it came to communications. Often never replied to when questions asked.
On the volunteering side, it was great to get advanced training for free.(although a lot of people sign up get the training and cheat the system).
Went to a good many events I would never had gone to on my own.
The leadership when I was in was often a confused, arrogant, vain. New ideas and recommendations not generally accepted.
Did not hold true to their policy of abuse/respect in the organization.
Pathetic recognition for members going above and beyond the call.
It has apparently gotten better. But I won't go back.
Meeting new people and groups.
22% below national average on pay, No raises in sight.
