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

    Pros

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

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

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

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

    Pros

    The best part was the people I worked with. Everyone was a big family and enjoyed being around everyone. The wage was also quite high which was nice. The work wasn't too hard. It was a fun job.

    Cons

    Work got tedious. There is room to be promoted, however, it seems as though they give preference to the bosses friends and buddies. I think first year employees only get one vacation day off the whole summer. So that's a bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Always promote within, I don't see a point of hiring external employees for positions that should be filled with internal employees. It brings down team moral.

    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.

    Pros

    Benefits and some locations are nice

    Cons

    Management and staff. Lots of projects and people who work there butt off and others who sleep on the job. Are you kidding me! Back stabbing and lack of confidentiality.

    Advice to Management

    Pick you staff more wisely. How can someone lead who has no mgmt. skills?

    Pros

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

    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!
