Great job but no incentive to stay long term
Facility program supervisor (Current Employee) –  London, ON3 December 2018
The city is a fun place to work but the lower level employees have no chance for advancement. The pay is ok but in contrast to the cap on hours, unfortunately it's no better than working fast food, which is honest work, but for a municipal corporation, the City of London should be encouraging employees to stay and not pushing them out.
Pros
Flexible hours, fun environment
Cons
No incentive to stay, no opportunity for advancement

Excellent employer
Specialist, Labour Relations (Current Employee) –  London, ON7 November 2018
Professionals are respected for their expertise. There is ample administrative assistance for those who require it. There is no expectation of overtime. Friendly co-workers. Benefits are good but salaries are lower compared to external employers in the same field.

Decent
Lifeguard/ Instructor (Former Employee) –  London, ON15 October 2018
Everything about this job is great but eventually feels boring and drawn out. Lessons for the kids can either be very fun or a pain due to parents not agreeing with your style of teaching or it was just their bad day. Rec swims can get very busy and can be very stressful as well.
Pros
Above minimum wage and free time
Cons
Crazy kids and people who dont understand english

Easy job
Facility Program Supervisor (Current Employee) –  London3 October 2018
Easy job, great for students. You can study during work shifts when rentals are in the buildings. During a shift you set up for rentals and make sure everything is running smoothly, clean up afterwards.

It depends
Manager (Current Employee) –  London, ON27 September 2018
Great place to work if you just want to collect a paycheque for 30 years, get good benefits and retire on a comfy pension. Not a great place to work if you want to be dynamic, do what's best for business/operations in a given situation, be excited about your job, and feel like you're making a difference. Status quo rules the roost. Work life balance is great in most unionized jobs and in some of the non-union city hall departments where the old city worker mentality remains, but in other areas its pretty terrible.
Pros
Pay, benefits, pension
Cons
It sucks the life out of you

Temporary Labourer- Exeter Road Yard (Former Employee) –  London, ON14 January 2018
I learned to communicate effectively with a variety of individuals. Public service provided me with the skills to interact with the community positively. Time management was a must especially when posing Health and Safety Risks such as replacing manholes, sidewalk and road replacement, pothole filling. The most enjoyable part of the job were the people.
Pros
Paid lunches and breaks

fun enjoyable workplace
Laborer (Current Employee) –  London, ON21 October 2017
Great work environment, easy going staff.
learned time management skills, good work ethics.
management is good but only hire family or close family friends for permanent full time positions.

the people you work with is the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
good steady hours with good pay.
Cons
not usually noticed for your effort and hard work.
