    I worked at Town of Whitby part-time

    Pros

    Great pay, good training, great teamwork and professional atmosphere. The bosses there are very understanding

    Cons

    Intense workplace, high expectations. The shifts are short or often split and you are not paid if you have an hour off. Other places find work for you.

    I worked at Town of Whitby part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were all very supportive and willing to help with any questions you had. Management was very approachable and gave good feedback.

    Cons

    Different supervisors had very inconsistent expectations of how lessons were to run. Micro-managing supervisors would interfere with lessons.

    Advice to Management

    Management could implement more structured feedback systems. Receiving performance reviews more often would have helped in my early development at the Town of Whitby.
