I worked at City of Barrie as an intern (Less than a year)
Business Development department was extremely welcoming
Fair number of interesting work assignments
Government work-pace was slow
Hard to be "pro business" with so much red tape and formalities
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at City of Barrie (Barrie, ON (Canada)) in June 2016.
Very open and informal interview setting. My interview started on Skype because I was out of the Province. They were very pleasant and on time during the whole session. After the Skype interview I was scheduled for a sit in after almost a month on the waiting list. My reference checks were done with my previous employers and an offer was made. It was a very smooth process one in which i consider myself fortunate regardless of how experienced I am.
