    I have been working at City of Edmonton part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good Pay
    -Near Transportation Hubs
    -Near Civic services
    -Near Festival and Event hubs

    Cons

    - Employer does not adhere to schedule preferences
    -Seniority is Irrelevant
    - Crystal-ball schedule 'forecasting' results in understaffed busy days and overstaffed easy days
    -Vacation Approvals occur days before the requested time. Going on any meaningful vacation is next to impossible.
    -Management does not understand the job they are managing for.
    -Management complicates what should be a very easy job with extra nonsense such as specific catch phrases and advertisements of other services often reserved for the private sector.
    - Stress caused by poor scheduling, restrictive vacation timeliness and disconnected management cause a gradual increase in absenteeism. In turn causing more stress for employees who maintain a consistent presence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule forecasting is the same as fortune telling. Have a morning, day, evening, and night shift.
    adhere to schedule preferences. It's easy to preach 'city values' when you go home at 5pm and get consistent vacation for running excel spreadsheets. You have human beings working for you. Treat them like it.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
