I have been working at City of Guelph full-time (More than 5 years)
Excellent compensation and benefits. Opportunities to grow and develop. Amazing coworkers and colleague's that encourage and inspire. Engaged community that values City services.
At times difficult environment to direct change due to need to balance political aspects of City planning. At times some employees are resistant to change.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at City of Guelph (Guelph, ON (Canada)) in February 2010.
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.
I started well above minimum wage, so the negotiation process did not occur
