        I worked at City of Edmonton part-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Part-time workers were very helpful in helping other part-time workers to find work outside the City of Edmonton to survive the low pay, and seasonal working time offered at the City of Edmonton.

        Cons

        Should never take a part time job at the CIty of Edmonton and hope that it will transpire into a full time job. Part workers wanting full time work needs to have an "in" to advance. Otherwise, it is no go. This is something that supervisors will not tell you to your face. Pi

        Advice to Management

        Do not have supervisors write job descriptions and also give themselves the ability to hire their own staff. What happens is that supervisors writes a job descriptions to suit his/her friend. They gives them the ability to build their own empire with friends of theirs.

        Pros

        Co-workers are interesting and great to work with, while it lasts.

        Dead end job for part time employees. Must have acceptance from an insider to get a full time job within the City.
