    I worked at City of Guelph part-time

    Pros

    Great working culture and supervisors, management good, fun and exciting job, good flexibility for students

    Cons

    low pay rate for experienced employees, structure of pay system makes it difficult to work your way up to a raise and seems difficult for them to retain employees. Short shifts are too short

    Advice to Management

    Offer better wages to more experienced new hires, or offer bonuses for instructors who teach high profit margin classes to retain employees

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at City of Guelph (Guelph, ON (Canada)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Panel of 2 managers with basic interview questions. Strengths, Weaknesses, instances where you have shown leadership, solved problem etc. HR hiring manager is not usually present for summer contract position interviews. Was not interviewed for the summers afterwards that I worked in the same position.

    Negotiation

    I started well above minimum wage, so the negotiation process did not occur
