Love it ! Such a good career step

Definitely recommend because no matter what area you work in you can branch off into different departments no problem! If you start in recreation you can move to administration it’s great

HR "policies" are a joke and Management are idiots!

Lots of internal competition for permanent job positions and it usually goes to someone that is already elected for the position. Very little opportunity to move up/grow. HR doesn't actually uphold their employee policies and can get rid of you without following proper termination processes. It is essentially a Town office full of nepotism filled with people who are married, dating, related, went to school together, or friends with management. Learn to keep your head down and work, because if you are vocal about something that isn't right they don't like it! Many petty people there and lots of gossip. Those on the "Sunshine list" with high salaries don't deserve their pay for the lack of leadership they are to provide to their team. Welcome to a large Town municipality with small minded (related) people!

Pros

pay is good (if you can keep your job)

Cons

don't take a contact....there's no benefits for you

Summer Camps

One of the best summer jobs available for students looking to make upwards of four grand a summer. You work alongside your team collaborating to make decisions regarding each daily plan and every opinion is valued. It truly doesn't feel like you work a day at all.

fun easy going group

its a good group of people at TON every one works together and gets the job done. the hours are odd due to the nature of community activities (early as 5 am and as late as 2 am)

very nice people and fun job

I really enjoyed my time at the Town of Newmarket. The people there are always friendly and the other employees are great. This job is not super stressful but really demands that you know what you are doing (ex. you have significant experience in what you are teaching).

Don't like someone out of their band

Very selfish and don't let the new employees contribute to projects. People close to the retirement age want to have full control over everything to keep their job secure.

Cons

Very lazy, most of the time work from home with different excuses.

Public Information Ambassador

This position entailed public outreach, marketing and data analysis regarding the municipality's new by-law. I am responsible for creating an education platform to educate both internally and externally the changes to the by-law. I prepared and attended multiple town-run events, where I was required to create different content and information booths for the public. I helped create different social media engagements including slogans, social media platform posts, and websites. Prepared and presented the education campaign corporate wide, including to York Region Police's Sergeants.

Amazing workplace with great people.

Overall working as a lifeguard and swim instructor for the Town of Newmarket is one of the best jobs you can have. You develop many skills throughout your time working there such as customer service, team management, and problem-solving. Working with many different children and adults every day helps you learn new ways to interact with people and keep them motivated by doing their tasks. You learn new strategies and methods to make sure everyone is happy in your class and doing the best they can do. One of the best parts of working as a lifeguard and swim instructor for the Town of Newmarket is the new friends you meet. Almost everybody I worked with was easily approachable and brought a good environment to the workplace. This made me enjoy coming to work because I knew I would be with positive people. The hardest part of working with the Town of Newmarket was since it was a physical job it would get hard on your body at times. However, the supervisors were very understanding and give you breaks if you couldn't handle all the physical stress. Overall, an amazing place to work, would recommend 100%

Pros

workplace environment

Cons

physically taxing

Lifeguarding in Newmarket is good

Not the best management in terms of hours. The part-time job rate was really good. No need for experience to get hired which was huge as you start at a decently high rate.

Good Job; Advancement is null

Good job as part time. Other staff are friendly and generally a good work environment. Hiring practices are slightly unfair. It's all about who you know and not the skills or experience you have.

Pros

Good frontline staff; Training opportunities; Cheap fitness membership

Cons

No advancement opportunities; a bit gossipy (management)
