GIS Intern (Former Employee) –  Drayton Valley, AB29 September 2017
Enjoyed working for the Town of Drayton Valley. I learned a lot. I wished I had more time available. I liked the the monthly information meetings. Not too long, just enough to update everyone on what was going on.
Pros
Small enough to know everyone.
Cons
Small departments, sometimes meant having to figure things out for yourself.

Fun and relatively easy summer job with a great group of people.
Summer Labourer (Former Employee) –  Drayton Valley, AB25 April 2016
A day working as a summer labourer for the town usually begins with a daily meeting at the Parks equipment, and vehicle building. we are given directions and tasks for the day, and most labourers are given specific semi regular tasks for the entire summer. Mowers operate the mowers near daily for most the summer, weed whackers drive around to certain areas that need weed whacking, etc. occasionally labourers are taken off these tasks to assist public works in their tasks or to accomplish irregular or seasonal jobs that need doing.

Working there; I have learned how to operate a cabbed mower, including maintenance, driven one ton trucks and better acclimated to driving them, and occasionally assisted the flush truck crew as it performs its tasks.

Management at the town is fairly good, but suffers from a, at times, lack of clear instructions and a lot of turnover the past few years, these issues will probably be reduced as time goes on.

The coworkers are generally the best part of the job and encompass mostly young adults. generally a positive and light atmosphere is fostered and many of the labourers are friends inside and outside of work.

the hardest part of the job is the repetitive nature of some of the tasks and finding ways to reduce boredom is at times paramount.
Pros
occasional lunches/barbeques, Good Coworkers, regular hours, outdoors
Cons
contradictory instructions, repetitive nature of tasks, inclement weather
