Check out what some of our casual employees have to say about their work with the City.
Working for the City provides great opportunity to grow your skills and advance into leadership roles. Aquatics has a friendly atmosphere where everyone is close. It’s a great feeling to see our swimmers gain confidence and achieve their goals in the water.
I enjoy that I am active in the community, constantly helping others to become active through the services that our community centres have to offer. I also enjoy interacting with people of all ages and backgrounds, as this helps to broaden my worldview and to learn new skills every day.
This job is highly rewarding with many great opportunities to work with a variety of people. I’ve been able to develop my skills with people and as a leader. Working here has reinforced my desire to become a teacher. Aquatics is like a family that has given me support, guidance and great friendships.
Facility Program Supervisor
Whenever I’m working I feel great! I feel as though I’m lending a helping hand or providing important information to whomever needs it. I like that I have the chance to interact with so many different people and that no day is the same. Sometimes I’m presented with new challenges, but they just push me to problem solve and I find joy in being able to do that. I love my work environment and my co-workers who are always ready and willing to help.
Personal Support Worker
I’ve been here for twenty-three years and continue to enjoy being able to put a smile on people’s faces. I work mainly with residents experiencing dementia, so every day can be different. With patience and understanding we help people take care of their activities of daily living. Showing respect and dignity to our residents is one of our most important aspects to care. I find having a sense of humour is helpful, as you never know what kind of day you may have!
