Awesome.

Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Former Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I worked at City of Mississauga Canada part-time for more than a year

ProsGreat coworkers. Fun environment with fun people made for a fun job. Working with kids, if it's your kind of thing, is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Competitive pay considering the kind of work that we were doing.

ConsCrazy hours. Although hours were done by request, almost impossible to get a 9-5 style chunk of time where you just worked. Situations can be stressful, especially as a younger person.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the atmosphere light, happy instructors means happy customers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked with the city for four years. The people are great, the major is a tough cookie. This is a place to grow.

Great place to contribute to your community, work hard and leave at 4:30pm.

Manager (Current Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I have been working at City of Mississauga Canada

ProsExcellent work-life balance, very good wage, treated well for working hard, unlimited opportunities to do more work and learn, information is communicated freely, one of the best government or municipalities you can work for.

ConsLack of leadership and accountability skills throughout the entire organization, departmental silos, deadlines are flexible which means extensions are common, high performers will find little cross-learning potential from senior management and management

Advice to Senior ManagementThe best way to develop leadership and accountability is to make Commissioners, Directors, Managers and everyone accountable for their actions. This means you need 1 person responsible, a real target or level of achievement expected and a real consequence of failure. The exact opposite of this is a committee that has goals and timelines that change based on the most recent updates and circumstances and everyone gets a raise no matter how ineffective the exercise. It should be expected to see around 2 to 5% of employees receive no wage increases due to ineffective task completion.
