A good starting job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I previously worked here, and while there were pros, I genuinely felt like what I achieved wasn't for the good of the learners. I think lots of people don't put effort in and the kids in swimming lessons, are not taught as they should be.


Flexible hours. Good starting wage


Not much advancement, not a great community, not inclusive
Was this review helpful?

It's fun and a there's so much to learn and places to advance to.

I'm now a regular full timer. It's a great job with security, and benefits that are difficult to find elsewhere. I'm personally grateful for my opportunity to move into a permanent roll from an aux position. The work can be challenging but for me has been a great experience.

Great working staff

Loved my coworkers and had a great team. Management needed work as we rarely saw them. I preferred working auxiliary as I can chose my hours and days I worked.


More pay as auxiliary


No advancements

Not the best environment

Worked in the operations division (maintenance) as seasonal labor. The different departments are strange and very clicky and it's difficult to fit in as most of the workers personalities vary. Your job duties vary on which department requires a body. You bounce from road paving, installing street signs, clearing brush, then to roadkill pick up. No real incentive for the workers you do your job and that's pretty much it, workers don't do above or beyond what is expected. Most employees are set in their ways and are disgruntled about most things from parking on site to their favorite sports team losing. There is some toxic work culture of "the old boys club" where adults act like 18 year old boys, very low ratio of women working in operations most likely due to the way the men act.Management is not proactive in making attempts to deal with problematic employees, they would rather let them run amok then give them some kind of feedback in what they are doing wrong.

Gone down hill last few years

When I was first hired with TOL. It was the best city to work for in the lower mainland. Since then management has changed and the work environment it toxic. Cuts and decisions based off around cutting costs instead of health and wellness of both patrons and employees

Started as a favorite ended a disaster

There are 2 options for a day at the township option 1 do your duties and go home or 2 do the duties of the day,afternoon and graveyard shift because none can be held accountable for there responsibilities its really a toss up depending in which of the 4 locations you you are working. Management is extremely inconsistent on how they treat there employees some can openly talk about doing nothing while others on the same shift are expected to pick up there who are vacuuming out there cars on shift will go to the bosses over you being 2 minutes late returning from lunch.the hardest part of the job is trying to figure out what's expected from you as it's not clearly laid out.The most enjoyable part of the Job is seeing the community enjoy the facility.

Difficult work environment depending on the department

Not a lot of encouragement from management to be creative or try new things, and limited support. Often younger/newer staff members are not respected but expected to do the work of other staff that have been there much longer. Cross department collaboration is hit and miss depending who is involved. Lack of cultural diversity, especially concerning indigenous-related content supervisor positions.

Most front line workers are wonderful

If you like to put in a good days work for the community and its residents the organization is great. Different departments, specifically different leaders will create a different opinion of what working for the TOL is like. Some areas very bad, some are very good..From my observations it's still an old boys club, very little ethnic diversity, women rarely get promoted. It helps if you appear similar to the management, then they treat you good. Good stepping stone jobs.Some of the other lower reviews are quite truthful, unfortunately. Lots of gossip and backstabbing depending where you are


Good pay for young employees


MANY other things

They will work you into the ground

Very high workload, under staffed, little support, many toxic managers, health and safety takes a back seat to everything else. Weak collective agreement unless you are permanent full-time and even then it is not the best. Benefits are terrible. Opt out. Promotions are based on favourtism even if they make you go through all the motions of the application process. Expect long panel interviews and excessive amounts of testing or work samples. Do yourself a favour and avoid the Township.

Great pay, supportive management when needed

Great pay, easy to pick up hours, hard to advance past auxiliary position. If you want flexible hours this is the place to be! Most co-workers are just as hard working but sometimes you watch people get paid the same as you and slack on the job. Management is supportive when you need help which is great.

Great workplace!

The Township of Langley has been a great workplace. I feel that the managers are supportive and very flexible and empathetic. This job is great for anybody wanting to work with people and if you need a flexible auxiliary position.


good pay, paid training, flexible scheduling, fairly easy work


schedule changes every 3 months, can be hard to get the hours you want

I only volunteered, but everyone there was helpful.

I only volunteered there, but i could imagine working there would be wonderful too. Run by very helpful and understanding people, could not of asked for a better experience. The people who did work there seemed very fond of their jobs, and were compassionate for what they did . :)

Good for flexibility, best if transportation is owned

There are various shifts available to pick up at the multiple facilities programs are offered, in small segment shifts (with a couple exceptions such as day camps and dances). Rec workers plan and lead the programs, sometimes after a shadow shift but with the possibility of running a program without knowing expectations other than what is listed on the leisure guide and perhaps alone. Supervisors or Rec leads are available for emailed questions around the programs and can provide example plans. Would recommend if energetic, good at multi-tasking, problem solving and looking to pick up shifts.


Leading kids programs


Short hours at various locations

Fun work, No hours

Its a nice job in all but the amount of hours you get is terrible. They hire too many people and management dosn't realize that people dont want to work 3, 2 hour shifts in a week, IT SUCKS!

Fun, Relaxed work environment

You can choose your own hours and it is very interesting to get to meet so many new people. There are so many ways to try new things that people wouldn't usually try.

Good place to work

enjoyed my time there, but hours were a challenge. Most of the people there got along for the most part. Spent 6 years on night shift and had a hard time acquiring a day time position.

Good staff team

Had a great bunch of people to work with. The managers hardly came around, mostly clerks who ran the show. Some clerks were better than other but that’s how it goes. I would definitely work there again.
