Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Union is a little weak. Lots of different kinds of jobs available to transfer into but very little room to move up. Depending on department there can be a very large disconnect between management and union. To much emphasis placed on redundant paperwork and work orders. Good pay for someone starting up but not enough for a single person to buy a home anywhere close to the area. That being said it is a good work environment with an emphasis on safety. The work is not incredibly strenuous, and you are guaranteed a steady paycheck. People are easy to get along with and there are a lot of outdoor enthusiasts.

Pros

Good work environment, safety oriented, decent wages, steady work

Cons

Weak union, micro-management, redundant paperwork, not much opportunity for advancement

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.

Pros

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

Cons

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

Don't bother unless you're about to retire

Pay is ok. benefits suck unless you mange to make it full time. management is Meh. They care 50% of the time. Good at blowing money, except on you and proper equipment, zero overtime. Lots of drama between employees. Either be quiet, be favourite or you'll be fired

Lots of opportunity here

Great place to work and some fantastic co-workers. Langley has been growing and so lots of new jobs seem to be coming up at the Township of Langley. I started in a lower position and now supervise a lot of other staff. Most managers here are good mentors and willing to help you in your job. Wages are way better than back in Manitoba where I came from, but cost of living is higher too. Still with that factored in, the wages and job security outweigh higher gas, food and lodging. Still ahead here and the weather is great. Not sure where that other person who provided the unfavorable review about the Township worked, but it sounds as though he just didn't like the work he was doing.

Sexist, gossipy, negative attitudes among the worker bees and up

Like other government entities, the T.O.L often enough hires "temporary employees" with the seeming promise of full time employment. Unless you have the right degree and the "right" people on your side (if they aren't favoring someone else they know for the position) you are simply just getting paid; but without benefits,stat pay or job security because it saves them money overall. I'm not going to get into my experiences, as the title literally explains that, not to be taken too lightly but only as a grain of salt, folks!

Pros

Good pay, decent hours

Cons
