Secretary | Hamilton, ON | Jan. 20, 2017
lot of money and time wasted
If you worked hard you do not get any appreciation. People could get away with 2 hour lunches and long breaks and not do their work and still come out smelling like a rose.
Prosgood salary

Program Instructor | Canada | Nov. 10, 2019
Terrible
Was bullied and harassed by new management after being at my centre for 10 years and having 6 days of work to just 1 day that was a 2.5 hour shift (contract so it’s allowed) the city will weasel their way out of any issue and make you the one at fault. Any lesson plans, dance routines etc belong to the city not you even tho you make them up. Oh and are now for anyone to take and use that has no idea how to teach. Terrible experience do not recommend at all.

Typical big business culture.
The business hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm unless you are an outside worker which will at times take you to a 3 shift schedule. I have learned so much about the culture in the years I have spent. I have met many good people. Most importantly I have learned that professionalism is key.
