I was continually impressed by the positive corporate culture. Co-workers were happy to assist in other areas and for projects other than their own. People genuinely seemed happy to work here and there was seldom the type of complaining that is so often seen in many workplaces - especially government workplaces. Pay and benefits were comparable to other government jobs, and higher than most private sector jobs.
I very much enjoyed my years worked for Sturgeon County. I was able to acquire a lot of experience performing different tasks. They afforded me the opportunity for advancement. Due to cutbacks,they were not able to offer my previous position.
offered advancement opportunities
Great guys working here but owner is into shady business and has no respect or care for his employees. However life is well respected here and the people make you feel welcome
Good work-life balance, Always something to do
Boss does not care about employees.
Don't join the Business side of Sturgeon County. They've grown too fast and have not implemented the practices they expect management to follow. I was hired as a BA, and brought into a mess of a situation where I was supposed to be a PM, a procurement officer (where no processes were in place), tester, trainer, quality assurance, change management, etc. Which would be better if the SMEs and project sponsors understood PMI practices.
theft, and use of profanity
I quite enjoy working for Sturgeon County. The hours are great, and the work isn't overly difficult. The work comes in waves, as it is mostly reported by civilians. It is nice to have a surprise every day you go to work, never knowing what awaits you. Some days you work very hard, some not so much. They are understanding, but you are not babied. You must be able to take care of yourself and follow safety policy without someone nagging you along all the time. The atmosphere is great, I have gotten along well with almost everyone, and have made several good friends outside work. The work demographic is young, and is suited for mature, independent individuals. There is plenty of opportunity to learn and move up the job ladder. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic job that pays very well, seasonal or permanent. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting up at a restaurant or bar after work. The hardest part was repairing bridges, as it uses a fair amount of muscle, and it's normally really hot out at that time of the year.
It was a very good company to work for but was only seasonal.It was fun driving the paker.I still would be working there if I wasnt involved in a motor vehicle accident on the way to the job site.
Free lunch on speciall occasions
Bosses used to yelland scream to much.
We worked independently with clients. I enjoyed the clients but there was definitely a lack of them. You only got paid once all of the sessions with the clients were completed so that could mean every two months or possibly more.There was good training but not enough money coming in on a regular basis.
not enough work.
