    I worked at Strathcona County (Alberta, Canada) (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing People, great pay, perfect hours and a good work atmosphere.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any down sides. Wish I would have been able to stay for longer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You make students feel welcome and part of the team.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Strathcona County (Alberta, Canada) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can work there for the summer and keep coming back every summer. Great summertime job for students that pays well.

    Cons

    Your opinion is not valued unless the higher up people like you. You can get mistreated if you are not careful and there is no one there to call them on it.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest impartiality for an area of improvement and I suggest you focus on building strong leadership with direction and focus as a lot of the work crews will have extended lunch/15 minute breaks or work slow and a lot of workers who don't put much effort in, don't get any negative repercussions and have just as much potential for advancement as someone who works very hard 8-9 hours a day for the entire summer.

    I worked at Strathcona County (Alberta, Canada) part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    very fun place to work, great staff and environment. No pressure and lots of time for projects and very open to new ideas

    Cons

    Hard to get anything implemented and followed through on. Too much beaurocracy sometimes which can lead to tension in the workplace. Atmosphere at the gym is very immature

    Advice to Management

    keep it up!
