Park Patrol Attendant (Current Employee) – Tottenham, ON – 8 September 2017
Lots of seasonal contracts, seemingly difficult to advance with little assistance incentive to do so. The people are generally good to work with, but being a municipal government operation there are far too many different managers and council making decisions about things they aren't directly involved in.
if you do your work and don't say anything to anyone you'll be good... I worked for the Parks and Recreation department for 5 years, i worked with a lot of great guys, and a hand full of not so great guys. The problem was that the not so great guys are the ones the boss loves the most, so if you back talk them at all you can bet your life is going to get a lot harder. Most jobs with the town are easy money and great benefits!
This was a safe place to work and I really enjoyed the job experience.
Camp Counsellor (Former Employee) – Beeton, ON – 17 November 2014
On a typical day at work I would be there around 10 minutes before 8am to meet with my co-workers and discuss the plans for the day. This job taught me how to interact with children and their parents and taught me how to interact with people when they were upset r angry with something that happened that day. My co-workers were very helpful in teaching me how to interact properly with people and deal with things that I have not had experience in. The hardest part of this job was experiencing the angry parents and learning what things to say to them to calm them down. The most enjoyable thing about this job was that I got to interact with different people all day for the duration of this job.
