Parks Labourer (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON15 August 2017
I enjoyed working in an outdoor environment with other people. Workplace culture is very energetic and fun. The hardest part of the job is working in the heat as it can be very draining.

Don't work as a lifeguard
Lifeguard and Swim Instructor (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON8 July 2017
Management is extremely disrespectful, condescending and sexist.
Swim instructors are treated very poorly both by management and student parents.

Underpaid.

Work elsewhere.

Summer Camp Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON19 June 2017
A typical day involves working with campers doing crafts, playing games, baking, etc. I learned how to effectively manage time, multi-task, and make day plans for children. The hardest part of the job is the lengthy amount of training. Everything about the job is enjoyable, the kids make everything worthwhile.
Pros
Awesome children
Cons
Long Days

Great environment the longer you work here the more people want to get rid of you because of your high pay, it rotates new people into the job as they are paid less.

Volunteer Work (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON13 February 2017
Working with children is quite fun, staff aren't always pleasant, but the CEO knows what they're doing, and are always aware of the children's safety, would recommend!

City Worker- Parks Operations (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON15 December 2016
Working for the town of Richmond Hill has been an incredible experience. All workers, regardless of their rank, consistently get along and friendships are forged along the way. The work can be physically demanding, but having so many people to enjoy the day with makes that okay.

Registration Clerk (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON13 September 2016
The Town of Richmond Hill, is quite the entertaining work environment. Unlike most jobs, the day to day agenda varies. It was stressed by management that customers were a priority and efficient and appropriate customer service was the key to success.

It's a good starter job for students and people looking for part time hours.
Facility Attendant (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON22 June 2016
A lot of facilities to work at and lots of staff to trade shifts with, meaning you can work as much or as little as possible. Great for students and people looking for extra cash on the side.

FACILITY OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON3 June 2016
Main task is to ensure community center runs smoothly. Mostly cooped up in a room, but able to move around freely. Being able to interact with customers and other members of the community is a great plus and passes time quickly. Fast-paced, and tight schedules require great organizational ability.

Lifeguard and Swim Instructor (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON1 November 2015
I do many thinks at the pool, the to main and obvious things I do are to prevent accidents/treat them, and to teach children, adults, toddlers how to be comfortable in the water and how to swim. On a Regular Lifeguard shift, we would always arrive 20min early to prepare for the swim to take place, same goes for instructionals. Everyone treats each other as an equal and is it very fun working in the atmosphere the pool provides. The most difficult part of the job has to be the communication and patience with smaller children and there ability to swim. Some kids are more difficult to deal with than others but at the very end of the day, they are learning new things and are being motivated to be active. Management is amazing, very easy to talk to and if we have any concerns, they take the right actions and ensure that it will meet up to the persons expectation.
Pros
Amazing Staff, and Free Food
Cons
Alot of short shifts
