Facilities Maintenance in Aurora, ON
It's a job, they only care what you can do better.Thee shifts and the hours are not bad. And the expectations are unrealistic but very clear. They provide training for everything and overall the work is not terrible if you don't mind taking initiative or getting your hands dirty. The biggest challenge is the workload and the repetition of it all. The expectation of what should be possible every day might not be a reality from one day to the.next. If you can manage that unspoken expectation along with the jerrymanderimg that goes on with job positions and postings here them you will be fine. The work enviroent becomes toxic if you don't just stay in a bubble and ignore the injustice and imbalance of work distribution and pay scales. This is all complimented by some nopotism and work contracts and policy written on tissue paper.I think because of the pension and benefits it might be attractive but the wage is barley livable after deductions. They will match pension but again consider you give away real money you earned every paycheque for a promise that that real money and the fake top up should be there later. As of this writing we have 2x more people collecting pension than those that are currently employed paying into it, I don't suppose that can last forever. Consider that is because they try to run a skeleton crew to cover operational needs. That would be great if HR only hired the best of the best. But as an equal opportunity employer you can expect the average of the average. So if you are a hard worker there is lots for you here and it can only end badly.I think they want high turn over, thanks for your union dues, pension contributions and putting up with us, here is your t-shirt. Human Resources make a compelling case for the need for Public Relations.I am trying to stay employed here but am having trouble being neurotic enough to tolerate the environment. I've spent years here trying to find a rythm to accell at this job and the worst things about it seemed to be the most steady at the wheel. The future of education is going to be build from the failings here. I can recall many good memories here but I have to.struggle past the other experiences that really took me further away from my faith. Your effort and time will be swallowed whole, but if you need a job just show up take the money and don't look back.Overall I owe a debt of gratitude to the company because I am hitting the job market hard. I have decided to also join the pursuit of higher education. I tried to bring dignity and respect to custodial and maintenance workers here but between employee conduct and the.some.of the megalomaniac power trippers it's going to be a while. It's reflected right there in your pay with a social rider that you are only as important as your pay scale.People here after some time just give up, but they never quit or find another job. Why would they look for inspiration when they could crush yours? It's a place in charge of education and I was astounded by the stunning lack of. I don't want to discredit any childcare or teaching jobs those come with their own challenges. Our facilities maintenance department is an enemy from within.
