Town of Caledon, ON Employee Review

Very clique-ish workplace

Probably a great place to work if you fit in immediately. However, if you are not on board with your specific departments culture right away, it can be very hard to advance. It is a very political environment, with some councilors and staff treated very differently than others based on community viewpoints. Management can be inconsistent with requests and quick to anger. Change is resisted quite a bit at higher levels.

Productive and fun workplace

I enjoy what I do daily. It's a very flexible and accommodating workplace. Always learning new things. Great supervisor and work team. An inclusive and diverse work place.

Terrible

Don't waste your time. There is so much red tape, nothing ever gets done...management will throw you under the bus in a heart beat to make themselves look better when it counts.Work/life balance is non existent especially if you work from home. There is no morale and no culture.

Workers, you could have upwards of 5 supervisors alone, some you will never once encounter or never have known you even had that many supervisors.You could present an idea to your first supervisor; get the go-ahead and you would think their approval is enough. Then, you come into work the next day and be told by your next supervisor that the idea you came up with is unacceptable. You will not be given a reason why, but you will be presented with the excuse that you did not go through the proper “Chain of Command.” You will be thinking to yourself, “Why do I have all these supervisors if they can all be undermined by the one above them?” Trust me you are not the only one. The truth is, since the idea was not first thought of by your supervisor, that whole inferiority complex will kick in. And the only way that a supervisor can make themselves feel better is by belittling workers.The COVID-19 pandemic has uncovered the realization that many people apart of the Town of Caledon’s Management team are incompetent, overpaid and expendable. From the very start of the pandemic, there was -
